You boys are surprised to see me
Never thought I’d get out of jail
Took eight long years to spring me
And two hours to ride the rail

Took only thirty minutes to find you
Asking every snake slithering the street
“Where’s the man with the golden tattoo?
The man who let me take the heat?”

You’re surprised in your neon lair
By the power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There’s a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There’s a power
Power underneath Yeah the
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There’s a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

In solitary for two steel years
Thought of you sixty times an hour
Fighting madness and fighting despair
Digging the hidden power

Thought about you in the yard
When your punk slipped me the blade
Thought about you in the hospital ward
When I gave it back to him in trade

And my smile is the last sight you’ll see
As you feel the power from inside of me

Power underneath
Power underneath There’s a
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There’s a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath There’s a
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath There’s a
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There’s a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There’s a
Power underneath
Power underneath despair
