Power Lyrics by S.A.S.
Power by S.A.S.
It's a system where the people just get pushed away
For a profit, they gentrify our land
And the police enforce their will with an iron hand
We were born into the system -- we had no choice
But we can stand as one people -- with one loud voice
They exploit our labor -- For their own greed
We've got to fight them back -- For the things we need
More people have died of AIDS than in the Vietnam War
By the time they fund research it'll be ten times more
They spend ten billion on a bomber that doesn't fly
While the homeless and the poor just starve and die
Their power comes from us -- We take it away
We can't afford to wait -- It's got to be today
The power is within us -- We can do as we please
Far better that we die on our feet
Than we live on our knees
Every generation had their chance and now it's our turn
We've seen their mistakes and I hope we've learned
We've got to make a better world at any cost
Or the next generation will be just as lost
