Powerless

 

POWERLESS (refusing to drown in obscurity)

You and I on an East Coast summer night
We chase the Northern Lights tonight
Matt Mays on the radio
We’ve got the windows the low
’cause we’ve got nowhere to go

Alone again, with car stereo
and we’ve got Wintersleep on
because we know they know
I sing someday laser beams will cure my sight
You laugh and look at me and say that’s no surprise

Powerless it’s not us tonight
It’s just a word made up by them to make feel alright
Powerless it’s not us tonight
It’s just a word made up by them to make feel alright

You and I on a hot summer northern night
You slip your dress off in the moonlight
And up on the hood, as you lay next to me
We see the Asteroid

clickity click click…

Alright now, we’ve finally found a way out
Never had to wait to long did you?
(So tired of waiting, waiting)
Alright now, let’s take this track way out
Wrap this up and bring it home,
For you………………

Powerless it’s not us tonight
It’s just a word made up by them to make feel alright (alright)
Powerless it’s not us tonight
It’s just a word made by our ENEMIES to make feel alright
You’re the comeback kid, don’t let them hold you down,
we’re so tired of waiting, waiting
