    Default 2000 Watts Doesn't Make Sense Physically

    Let's calculate it:

    power - 2000 W
    resistance - 8 ohms
    voltage - 200 V
    current - x

    x = P/U = 10 A

    However...

    I = U/R = 200/8 = 25 A

    Now, I know that "twenty ohms" wouldn't fit in melodically, but still.

    I always took most of the lyrics in that song as a metaphor, along with the warning: "Be careful what you say, don't overload."

    The only one I can think of at the moment, with lyrics that frustrate me, is "Tabloid Junkie". I literally can't understand 90% of the verses, just the choruses and the bridge. As I've said in other threads, I'm not big on remixes...but a more intelligible version of this would be welcome.

    I've never really understood why people can't understand tabloid junkie and shout. Once you know they lyrics it's pretty easy to understand lol.

    Mike often skipped around speaking of segmented stories within verses so sometimes it simply is hard to fallow than lets a a single story.. If you do the math (jumping around a lot + unique pronunciations + metaphoric statements that can be mis-interpenetrated = "I don't know what he's singing but it sounds cool"
    **He lives forever within us**
