The Lyrics

Flick the switch, light goes on. Never a miscommunication. Except...
I needed to go to the loo
And so the room needs to be brighter
But post-click, still pitch black, dude
Lounge room denizens got blinded
How the hell's the light rewired?
I don't want my lights rewired
Hang on, who would like rewires?

I decided to try a few
More switches to see what would light up
As I thought, none of them do
What they should, this has gone beyond "quite nuts"
Some ass made my lights rewired
Can't handle my lights rewired
Won't relabel, I'm too tired, yeah-eah-eah

The skill involved, I must approve
Open my fridge, my car gets brighter
The "on" light for my fan's moved
To this toy truck, won't dampen my ire
Impressed by my lights rewired
Still don't want my lights rewired
In a waste of time, I'm mired, yeah

This has to be some weird hoodoo
If it weren't my house, I'd admire
But since that part is the truth
I'll prove that their clothes burn brighter
This is crazy, lights rewired
Scream irately, lights rewired
Set the sneaky guy on fire
Bit too much? You try to fire
Up the stove to find the lighter's
Moved to my torch, I'm on fire

Like a completionist fool, I based this on the 7 minute version...when that guitar solo started up, it felt like I was being trolled. At least In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida stuck all the solos at the end!

Not one of your best. Sure pacing is there--most of the time--but at the cost of comprehensibility. Because so much of one line carried thoughts over to the next one to their completion, I really had to read this three times over to get the sequence of events. Last verse really seemed really random. I also think in the third stanza, you don't want to "approve" the skills, but "improve" them.

The idea behind the third stanza was "this level of electrical reworking took a lot of skill, I approve of your skill level, just not how it was applied", hence the line "Impressed by my lights rewired". I will agree with the rest of your critiques, though.

I like the title sub but have to agree with Agrimorfee's analysis. Good idea.

This one kind of hits home because my dad is a carpenter so I’ve been around and hung out with electricians before! I kind of agree with what the others said too but I really enjoyed it

That is why I let someone else do it, especially the last part.
