Electric Light
Woodstock Mafia Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

While we were freaking out
Like electric loud all around the town

Those who our secrets keep
'Cause they were stealing dreams, up and down the streets

Black is the colour, we felt like a ghost in the night
All that we'll see is the truth and we can't live without

(Hey)

We don't know, 'cause they said so
Follow me, what we need is a miracle
We don't know the real show
Follow me and you'll see I'm a criminal

While we were crying out, they were planning schemes
They were sowing seeds

Feeling like burning fire
Like we're losing love, while they float above

Black is the colour we saw when we fell out of sight
All that we feel from now on is the dark and the light

(Hey)

We don't know, 'cause they said so
Follow me, what we need is a miracle the real show
Follow me and you'll see I'm a criminal

We don't know, 'cause they said so
Follow me, what we need is a miracle
We don't know the real show
Follow me and you'll see I'm a criminal

We don't know, 'cause they said so
Follow me, what we need is a miracle
We don't know the real show
Follow me and you'll see I'm a criminal

We don't know, 'cause they said so
Follow me, what we need is a miracle




We don't know the real show
Follow me and you'll see I'm a criminal

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Woodstock Mafia's song "Electric Light" seem to be conveying a sense of disillusionment and rebellion against a corrupt and manipulative authority. The opening lines, "While we were freaking out, like electric loud all around the town," suggest a chaotic and frenzied atmosphere, perhaps reflecting the societal unrest and dissatisfaction being portrayed.


The following lines, "Those who our secrets keep, 'cause they were stealing dreams, up and down the streets," hint at a group or individuals who hold power and control over the dreams and aspirations of others. The use of the word "stealing" implies a sense of theft or manipulation, suggesting that these figures are exploiting and taking advantage of people's hopes and desires.


The phrase "Black is the colour, we felt like a ghost in the night" evokes a sense of darkness and obscurity, symbolizing a loss of identity and purpose. It implies that the singer or the people in general feel invisible and unheard in the face of this oppressive authority. The reference to "the truth" that they can't live without suggests a desire for transparency and honesty, a longing to uncover the hidden realities.


The chorus reinforces the theme of not knowing the truth as the lyrics state, "We don't know, 'cause they said so, follow me." It suggests a blind obedience to authority figures who dictate what should be believed or followed. The desire for a miracle and a real show signifies a craving for something extraordinary, a shift from the status quo, and a rebellion against the manipulative forces that have been controlling their lives.


Overall, "Electric Light" appears to be an anthem of resistance and a call for individuals to question and challenge the authority that seeks to control them.
