lyrics

You stomp you feet on tiny houses
Prey on the helpless- you are the beast
I want your fire, but hate your methods
One day the greatest, shall be the least
I'm just a flicker within the darkness
A birthday candle beside the sun
But revolutions within our histories
They all got started by the power of one

The power of one

You hog the blanket while I am sleeping
So I get shafted, each time you turn
We have no weapons, we have no money
But children watching, and children learn
When you were born you came out bloody
Just like me, mister, and the holy son
The day is coming, alone you'll leave here
And you'll remember the power of one

The power of one

When I was little, big boys would taunt me
To prove their manhood, to make me fall
And it still happens, now that I'm older
They've got slave labor to take their calls
You've got a lifetime of grand successes
Which equals nothing when the day is done
Without love, no lasting value
Unless you die (into the power of one)

And man and woman, they join together
Like grace and mercy, the work begun
I am a living testimony of what was started
By the power of one
The power of one
The power of one
