    POWERLESS Lyrics 03:44
    You were that / foundation
    Never gonna be another one no
    I followed / so taken
    So conditioned I could never let go
    Then sorrow / then sickness
    Then the shock when you flip it on me
    So hollow / so vicious
    So afraid I couldn’t let myself see
    That I could never be held
    Back or up no / I hold myself
    Check the rep / yep you know mine well
    Forget the rest / let them know my hell
    There and back / yet my soul ain’t sell
    Kept respect up / the best they fell
    Let the rest be the tale they tell
    That I was there saying . . .
    
    In these promises broken / deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie / I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go
    
    Test my will / test my heart
    Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
    Ya’ll go hard / I go smart
    How’s that working out for y’all in the back, huh?
    I’ve seen that frustration
    Been crossed and lost and told no
    And I’ve come back / unshaken
    Let down and lived and let go
    So you can let it be known
    I don’t hold back I hold my own
    I can’t be mapped / I can’t be cloned
    I can’t C-flat / it ain’t my tone
    I can’t fall back I came too far
    Hold myself up and love my scars
    Let the bells ring wherever they are
    ’Cause I was there saying. . .
    
    NO / YOU CAN TELL ’EM ALL NOW
    I DON’T BACK UP / I DON’T BACK DOWN
    I DON’T FOLD UP AND I DON’T BOW
    I DON’T ROLL OVER / DON’T KNOW HOW
    I DON’T CARE WHERE THE ENEMIES ARE
    CAN’T BE STOPPED / ALL I KNOW / GO HARD
    WON’T FORGET HOW I GOT THIS FAR
    FOR EVERY TIME SAYING
    
    In these promises broken / deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie / I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go
    Separate
    Sifting through the wreckage I can’t concentrate
    Searching for a message in the fear and pain
    Broken down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
    
    Now in my remains
    Are promises that never came
    Set this silence free
    To wash away the worst of me
    
    Come apart
    Falling in the cracks of every broken heart
    Digging through the wreckage of your disregard
    Sinking down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
    
    Now in my remains
    Are promises that never came
    Set this silence free
    To wash away the worst of me
    
    Like an army
    Falling
    One by one by one
    The cycle repeated
    as explosions broke in the sky
    all that I needed
    was the one thing I couldn’t find
    
    And you were there at the turn
    Waiting to let me know
    
    We’re building it up
    To break it back down
    We’re building it up
    To burn it down
    We can’t wait
    To burn it to the ground
    
    The colors conflicted
    as the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this / but
    couldn’t stop from tearing it down
    
    And you were caught at the turn
    caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn
    Waiting to let you know
    
    You told me yes / You held me high
    And I believed when you told that lie
    I played that soldier / You played king
    And struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right / to hold that crown
    I built you up but you let me down
    so when you fall / I’ll take my turn
    and fan the flames as your blazes burn
    Imma be that nail in your coffin
    Saying that I softened
    I was ducking down to reload
    So you can save your petty explanations
    I don’t have the patience
    Before you even say it I know
    You let your pride or your ego
    Talk slick to me, no
    That is not the way I get down
    And look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show ya
    Exactly how the breaking point sounds
    
    I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
    SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
    SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
    
    What is it you want me to tell ya
    I’m not the failure
    I would rather live and let be
    But you came with the right kind of threat to
    Push me to let you
    Know you can’t intimidate me
    You disrespect me so clearly
    Now you better hear me
    That is not the way it goes down
    You did it to yourself and it’s over
    Now let me show ya
    Exactly how the breaking point sounds
    
    I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
    SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
    SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
    
    YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF
    Like shining oil this night is dripping down
    Stars are slipping down
    Glistening
    And I’m trying not to think what I’m leaving now
    No deceiving now
    It’s time you let me know
    Let me know
    
    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    
    This air between us is getting thinner now
    Into winter now
    Bittersweet
    And ’cross that horizon this sun is setting down
    You’re forgetting now
    It’s time you let me go
    Let me go
    
    And tell them I couldn’t help myself
    And tell them I was alone
    Oh tell me I am the only one
    And there’s nothing that can stop me
    
    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    Take me down to the river bend
    Take me down to the fighting end
    Wash the poison from off my skin
    Show me how to be whole again
    
    Fly me up on a silver wing
    Past the black where the sirens sing
    Warm me up in a nova’s glow
    And drop me down to the dream below
    
    ’Cause I’m only a crack
    In this castle of glass
    Hardly anything there for you to see
    For you to see
    
    Bring me home in a blinding dream
    Through the secrets that I have seen
    Wash the sorrow from off my skin
    And show me how to be whole again
    
    ’Cause I’m only a crack
    In this castle of glass
    Hardly anything there for you to see
    For you to see
    
    ’Cause I’m only a crack
    In this castle of glass
    Hardly anything else I need to be
    ’Cause I’m only a crack
    In this castle of glass
    Hardly anything there for you to see
    For you to see
    For you to see
    No regret for the confidence betrayed
    No more hiding in shadow
    ’Cause I won’t wait for the debt to be repaid
    Time has come for you
    
    Victimized
    Victimized
    Never again
    Victimized
    
    They’re acting like they want a riot / it’s a riot I’ll give ’em
    As the siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm
    For you snakes in the grass / supplying the venom
    I ain’t scared of your teeth / I admire what’s in ’em
    You been waiting in the shadows there, thinking you’re hidden
    
    But the truth is you don’t have the stomach to get ’em
    Go on already, hit ‘em / yeah you gotta be kidding
    Wanna talk about a victim / Imma put you there with ’em
    
    VICTIMIZED
    VICTIMIZED
    NEVER AGAIN
    VICTIMIZED
    NO
    Weep not for roads untraveled
    Weep not for paths left alone
    ’Cause beyond every bend
    Is a long blinding end
    It’s the worst kind of pain I’ve known
    
    Give up your heart left broken
    And let that mistake pass on
    ’Cause the love that you lost
    Wasn’t worth what it cost
    And in time you’ll be glad it’s gone
    
    Weep not for roads untraveled
    Weep not for sights unseen
    May your love never end
    And if you need a friend
    There’s a seat here alongside me
    Skin to bone / steel to rust
    Ash to ashes / dust to dust
    Let tomorrow have its way
    With the promises we made
    Skin to bone / steel to rust
    
    Ash to ashes / dust to dust
    Your deception / my disgust
    When your name is finally drawn
    I’ll be happy that you’re gone
    Ash to ashes / dust to dust
    
    ASH TO ASHES / DUST TO DUST
    SKIN TO BONE AND STEEL TO RUST
    
    Right to left / left to right
    Night to day and day to night
    As the starlight fades to grey
    I’ll be marching far away
    Right to left and left to right
    
    ASH TO ASHES / DUST TO DUST
    SKIN TO BONE AND STEEL TO RUST
    
    Let tomorrow have its way
    With the promises betrayed
    Skin to bone and steel to rust
    Skin to bone and steel to rust
    Skin to bone and steel to rust
    It goes 1 2 3
    I was born with the hunger of a lion / the strength of a sun
    I don’t need to sweat it when a competition come
    Original style like an 808 drum
    So I don’t run the track, no / I make the track run
    My mama taught me words / my daddy built rockets
    I put ’em both together now tell me what I got
    It’s a pretty smart weapon / I can shoot it, I can drop it
    But learn to respect it ’cause you clearly can’t stop it
    Like that
    
    It ain’t over ’cause the
    Shark’s on the left side / the snake’s on the right
    And anything you do they wanna get a little bite
    It really doesn’t matter if you’re wrong or if you’re right
    ’Cause once they get their teeth in / nothing really fights
    And as for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose
    And you can run your mouth like you can try to fill my shoes, but
    Steady little soldier, I ain’t standing next to you
    I’d be laying on the ground before you’re even in my view
    Like that
    
    Give me the strength of the rising sun
    Give me the truth of the words unsung
    And when the last bells ring
    The poor men sing
    Bring me to kingdom come
    
    It’s something for ya people on the block to
    Black out and rock to
    Give you what you need like poppa, who shot ya
    “Separate the weak from the obsolete”
    You’re meek / I creep hard on impostors
    And switch styles on a dime / quick-witted [add hyphen]
    Ya’ll, quit trippin’ I don’t have time for your crying
    I grind tough / sucker, make your mind up
    Are you in the firing squad or are you in the lineup?
    Bang bang little monkey man
    Playing with the big guns only get you slain, I ain’t playing
    I’m just saying / you ain’t got a sliver of a chance
    I get iller, I deliver while you quiver in your pants
    So shake shake down / money, here’s the breakdown
    You can play the bank Imma play the bank takedown
    And no mistakes now / coming to get ya
    I’m just a Banksy / you’re a Brainwash
    Get the picture
    Like that
    
    We swim against the rising waves
    And crash against the shore
    The body bends until it breaks
    The early morning sings no more
    
    So rest your head it’s time to sleep
    And dream of what’s in store
    The body bends until it breaks
    And sings again no more
    
    ’Cause time has torn the flesh away
    The early morning sings no more
    You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
    You woke the devil that I thought you’d left behind
    I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
    Ten thousand promises
    Ten thousand ways to lose
    
    And you held it all
    But you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all
    And I was by your side
    Powerless
    
    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
    I’m left with emptiness that words can not defend
    You’ll never know what I became because of you
    Ten thousand promises
    Ten thousand ways to lose
    
    And you held it all
    But you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all
    And I was by your side
    Powerless
