Lyrics
Aim, throw your best shot right at me cause pain, I can take it easily
Did you really think I'd fall to my knees just to pray for some sweet simplicity?
Cause woah, you're squeezing my heart, too hard in your bare hands, they hold too tight
And woah the air is on fire, this room feels electric, cord here in your sights
Power, power, I will never understand the power you're holding over me
Power, power oh you've had it too long, yes you've had it too long
Pain, just synapses firing in our brain so when you cut me, cut me deep
Hurt the ones you love the most [?] cause in time we show our Achilles's heels

And woah, you're squeezing my heart, too hard in your cold bare hands, they hold too tight
And woah the air is on fire, this room feels electric, cord here in your sights
Power, power, I will never understand the power you're holding over me
Power, power oh you've had it too long, yes you've had it too long
If you're gonna hit me, hit me harder (hit me, hit me harder)
Cause you better know me out the first time
And if you're do this with the plaster (do this with the plaster)
If you're gonna hit me, hit me harder than this
Power, power, blows my mind to think I ever let you hold it over me

Power, power, I will never understand the way I let you hold it over me
Power, power well you've had it too long, yes you've had it too long
Power, oh, oh, power, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Power, power, I let you have it too long, yes you've had it too long
