One more hour
To fight the power
For the life of me I don't understand how
We let it come down to this now
The mass of men
Leave their lives in
The hands of other men

Take one baby take two
You know what? Take as much as you need to
Big bro control me big bro enroll me
In a school of thought
I am what I bought
I bought into an image
And I bought into possessions
I bought into the fear of the recession
I bought into subservience
I put my nose in the muzzle
I'll buy a vowel from Pat (Sajak)
And then I'll solve the puzzle
If I go bankrupt
I'll just start back from scratch
The greatest fire
Can start with the flick of a match

One more hour
To fight the power
For the life of me I don't understand how
We let it come down to this now
The mass of men
Leave their lives in
The hands of other men

One more second on the clock ticks
One more goal and it's a hat trick
One more number and it's a phone call
One more brick and it's a great wall
One more mountain with a steep ledge
One more foot and it's over the edge
One more wave and it's goodbye
One more hit and your up high
One more walk down a darker hall
One more try and you'd a had it all
One more foot on which to stand
One more nail in anothers hand
One more disappointment and I'm a hack
One more straw and it's the camels back
One more smoke and give the camels back
One more breath and then a cough and a hack
One more runner off the world track
One more gunner giving out the flack
One more height from which we fell
One more heaven and one more hell
One more wasted weary earth
One more death, one more birth
