lyrics

I am looking right instead of left
cause what I can't see cannot hurt me
it's the time of the night were I'm tired and lonely
can't shatter the glass even though I can't breathe
I guess I'm not trying
I guess I am lying
to myself and everyone in front of me
God knows this ain't my finest hour
but everybody's got their problems with power

everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power

these cigarettes we smoke
they taste like cancer on my lips
maybe all my problems would be solved
if I pulled myself in at the hips
if my legs were taller
and my body smaller
I'd be fighting with the rest
God know this ain't my finest hour
but everybody's got their problems with power

everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power

everything I let go
I let go gently
if I drop too hard or drop too fast
I know the shock will surely kill me
their names are everywhere you look
and I have never been so angry
God knows this ain't my finest hour
but everybody's got their problems with power

everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power

when the ego is tempted
the id becomes reckless
and I feel abjected a lot of the time
it's a name on a tongue and it don't taste like love
it tastes like forgetting my integrity
but I am still standing
and they are still laughing
although all these laughs sound like mocking to me
God knows this ain't my finest hour
but everybody's got their problems with power

everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power

da da da da da
da da da da da da da da (x2)

everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power
everybody's got their problems with power
