Edisons Medicine

Edisons Medicine

Tesla

You're guilty of crime in the first degree
Second and third as well
My jury finds you'll be serving your time
When you go straight to hell

'Cause he was Lord of the lightning
Though socially frightening
But never out to sell

But the nickels and pence
Meant more than did sense
And not the sensible thing

Nor did the man outta time, man outta time
Thought you was crazy, you was one of a kind
Man outta time, man outta time
All along, world was wrong
You was right

All that he saw, all he conceived
They just could not believe
Steinmetz and Twain were friends that remained
Along with number three
He was electromagnetic, completely kinetic
New wizard of the west
But they sniveled and whined and he wasn't our kind
And said Edison knew best

He was a man outta time, man outta time
Thought you was crazy, you was one of a kind
Man outta time, man outta time
Swore you was outta your mind

You took a shot and it did you in
Edison's medicine
You played your cards, but you couldn't win
Edison's medicine

Check it out,
I spent twelve years of hard time
More like the best years of my life
Never heard or read one single word
About "the man" and his wicked mind
They'll sell you on Marconi
Familiar, but a phony
Story goes they sold their souls
And swore that you'd never know

About the man outta time, man outta time
Thought you was crazy, you was one of a kind
Man outta time, man outta time
Swore you was outta your mind

You took a shot and it did you in
Edison's medicine
You played your cards, but you couldn't win
Edison's medicine

You took a shot and it did you in
Edison's medicine
You played your cards, but you couldn't win
Edison's
Medicine
