HONEYCRACK - Lyrics
Powerless

Written by Willie. (Dowling) Warner Chappell Music Ltd.

Today's humiliation No communication No word of compensation Corporate evasion Tell it to the nation No one wants to hear about it Powerless Democratic placebo Powerless - Give me cheap innuendo Powerless - You're a drop in the ocean and you're Powerless - Hopeless - Powerless - Hopeless Health and education Urbanisation Fair taxation Privatisation Damage Limitation There's nothing you can do about it Powerless Democratic placebo Powerless - Give me cheap innuendo Powerless - You're a drop in the ocean and you're Powerless - Hopeless - Powerless - Hopeless And you're suggesting that the strong survive With an equal chance for all That's an easy observation to make From your house behind the wall Home repossession Phone reconnection Political persuasion Police intimidation The lottery nation There's nothing they will do about it They print the money then they buy the law Which amounts to a license to kill And Jesus may forgive them all of their sins But I know I never will Race discrimination White domination The promise of change but the creeps backstage Keep the audience guessing with the puppets they're manipulating Powerless Powerless Powerless You're a drop in the ocean and you're Powerless - Hopeless - Powerless - Hopeless Powerless - Democratic placebo Powerless - Give me cheap innuendo Powerless - You're a drop in the ocean and you're Powerless - Hopeless - Powerless - Hopeless Powerless - Hopeless - Powerless - Hopeless Powerless The angry young man song. 'Powerless' is fairly self explanatory, I think there is a whole generation in this country that has grown up with the sensation that they are alienated from the political process, and that exercising your right to vote is just a placebo we are thrown to make us believe that we are contributing to the society that we belong to.
