Grimskunk – Power Corrupts lyrics

Power corrupts the soul
Power can't give up control
At first you thought you would be wise
Would know when to draw the line
But it went to your head you grew soft in time
Started letting things slip stopped giving a shit
Let people die for the regime
As they proclamed you king
Long live the king!

Speack no evil, charm with lies
Betray the people keep them blind (rif)
Propaganda is your weapon
Two-faced hypocrite

Power corrupts the good
At first you thought you could do no wrong
You could make no mistake
But the temptation was too strong
And your will began to breack
Acting like god life was yours to give or take
Stealing money like a preacher on tv


Power corrupts the soul, power can't give up control
It eats away and take it's toll, Until it's swallow you whole
When your time hase come will end up with regret
That people asked for a change so the revolution spread
Found you guilty at your trial and sentenced you to death
With a rope around your neck
You let power corrupts your soul!
