"Power Lies" as written by Hutch Harris, Kathleen Foster and Westin Glass....
How did I lose my past
How did I choose this path
Why do I hold to my chest
Every memory I mean to forget

How can I measure my length
Where will I find my strength
Power lies

How did I find myself on top
How will I ever know to stop
When will I learn to defend
When will I finally see the end

How can I erase my steps
How can I fake my death
How could I bear to leave
The air is too clear to breath
Power lies
It takes back what you take in time
Power lies

How did I lose my past
How did I choose this path
Why do I hold to my chest
Every memory I mean to forget

How can I measure my length
Where will I find my strength
Power lies
It takes back what you take in time
(Power lies, power lies)
It takes back what you take in time
Power lies
But it takes back what you take in time
How would you take in time

    General CommentTo me this song is about integrating with corporate america, becoming an adult, selling out to your former self as you aspire to make more money, climbing the corporate ladder.
