The Lyrics

I am an energy consultant, so this hits home, but I wrote it for general consumption.
On a dark Tuesday morning, another blackout has hit,
I can't see a darn thing, until my candle is lit,
Far ahead in the distance, no more shimmering lights,
My head is dizzy and my sight is dim, it always looks like the night,
There they sat at their pulpits, declaring monopolies don't do well,
And I was thinking to myself 'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'
Then they lifted the gavel, and they showed us the way,
The markets will determine, just how much you'll pay

Welcome to the Blackout California,
Was a lovely place,
Such a lovely place,
Chaos is norm at the Blackout California
Any time of year, you can find it here

Politicians twisted, pretending to know,
They got a lot of high priced auctions, never paying low,
Now they fall by the wayside, what a short-lived big bet,
Some states will remember, some wish to forget.

So they called up the Governor,
'Please fix this raw deal'
He said 'I didn't get us in this mess,
But it now defines my career'
And still those voices are calling from far away,
My name is 'W' and you'll do it my way

Welcome to the Blackout California,
Was a lovely place,
Such a lovely place,
Livin is tough at the Blackout California
Not a surprise, so many alibis

Candles burning brightly,
Can't find any ice,
And she said "We are all just prisoners here
Of economists advice"
And in the Senate chambers,
They gathered night and day,
Who can solve this thorny problem,
We can't so we'll just pray

Last thing I remember, I ran into the door,
I couldn't find the light switch, oh that doesn't matter any more,
'Relax' said the Governor,
We signed new contracts with ease,
You can checkout all the fine print,
But for you there's no reprieve!
