    Rob Halford’s prophetic warning about the coming surveillance state, which he wrote all the way back in 1981 (seen here in a performance from the US Festival in 83)

    Up here in space
    I’m looking down on you
    My lasers trace
    Everything you do

    You think you’ve private lives
    Think nothing of the kind
    There is no true escape
    I’m watching all the time

    I’m made of metal
    My circuits gleam
    I am perpetual
    I keep the country clean

    I’m elected electric spy
    I’m protected electric eye

    Always in focus
    You can’t feel my stare
    I zoom into you
    But you don’t know I’m there

    I take a pride in probing all your secret moves
    My tearless retina takes pictures that can prove

    I’m made of metal
    My circuits gleam
    I am perpetual
    I keep the country clean

    I’m elected electric spy
    I’m protected electric eye

    Electric eye, in the sky
    Feel my stare, always there
    There’s nothing you can do about it
    Develop and expose
    I feed upon your every thought
    And so my power grows

    I’m made of metal
    My circuits gleam
    I am perpetual
    I keep the country clean

    I’m elected electric spy
    I’m protected electric eye
    I’m elected electric spy
    I’m elected protective, detective, Electric Eye!
