Tesla Brought the X-ray photo to the world Brought the AC power to the world
Here is a mind That can see across space Here is a mind soaring free Sound turns to light And light turns to waves And waves turn to all things perceived
Maybe that knowledge would drive one insane How can that knowledge be tamed?
Tesla Ushered the radio wave into the world Ushered the neon light Into the world
The Hotel New Yorker He's dead on the floor The body of Nikola lies With just his papers No family to tell Out of the windows birds fly
Under an X-ray of Mark Twain's skull The plan for the death-ray's design
Tesla Brought the radar detection to the world Ushered remote control Into the world Ushered the bladeless turbine Into the world Ushered the neon light Into the world
