I wanna touch electricity
I wanna find a sweet mystery
I wanna live on a razors edge

I wanna know, I wanna know

Aint gonna burn in your clean machine
I'm gonna swim or you drunk the sea  (???)
Aint gonna trip on your guillotine

I wanna know, I wanna know

Yeah my mind's made up to make a break away
Yeah my mind's made up to make a brand new way
Yeah my minds made up to make a caberet  (???)
I want to get a ticket to a different seat
I want to get it fast 

I wanna touch electricity
I wanna find a sweet mystery
I wanna live on a razors edge

I wanna know, I wanna know

(Guitar Solo)

Aint gonna walk through surburban land
I'm gonna speak, so you understand
Aint gonna be your mystery man

I wanna know, I wanna know

Quotations and trivia

Two Guitar solos continue well after Stewart stops drumming, until Stewart politely says "er...Andy?". Then shortly after, Sting raises his voice and also says "Andy" for him to stop playing the insane guitar solo. The song finally finishes with a vintage high pitched Sting losing his temper by shouting "ANDY" with added echo!

The song also appears on a setlist for the gig on 1978-02-23.
