Little power monger, sleep tonight
The city lights up like a dirty dime
I hope that this letter finds you crying
It would feel so good to see you cry

Under this same lifeless sky,
How is it I can find no peace?
Well, I hope that someday we meet both broken
We could kneel right down and kiss your feet

So take this, my back-stabbing pay back number
This is all mine
Cause you were my life-sucking power monger,
Even still you were mine

Wherever you are,
under the stars or under the influence of,
the cars and the neon lights
don't shine through your frigid light
Though you're a total mess, can you admit that yet?

Little power monger sleep tonight
The city lights up like a dirty dime
I hope that someday we meet both broken
It would feel so good to see you

    General CommentI think this song is about missing someone, even if part of you feels very bitter towards them now, they were a part of your life. I think it's incredibly honest, and all the honesty culminates in the final line, rather than "It would feel so good to see you cry," it's just "It would feel so good to see you."
