Tears For Fears – Power lyrics

Last years rivals share their blood
Sailor sworn to secrecy
Ride the waves and stem the flood
The tides of endless enmity
Power now is all the rage
Sons and daughters of the gun
Hungry babies come of age
Phasers switched and set to stun

Power now, power how, power wow!
Here's power

If you're seeking power.........

Doctor held you tight and torn
Boy he was a lucky man
Out of you the future born
Slight of foot and sight of hand
Douse the candle, dim the light
Focus not on fire or flame
Don't believe that might is right
Your soul can turn you just the same

Power now, power how, power wow!
If you're seeking power - here's power
Power now, power how, power wow!
If you're seeking power - here's power

If you take my breath away
The whole damn thing will turn and return
Redefined, rearranged, rearranged
And till my dying the day
I guess I'll have to burn just to learn
This the time, this the place
To show a human face

Dressed to kill we guessed you might
Friend or foe or family
We'll sacrifice the virgin white
Her death will be the life of me
Power now is all the rage
Don't excuse it use it well
Keep the lion in his cage
Free from hunger, free from hell

Power now, power how, power wow!
If you're seeking power - here's power
