Anne Clark - The Power Game (Pressure Points) lyrics

I've been sitting here all day
Trying to understand
Why people want to rule each other
When the problem's close at hand

A little less of what you want
And more of what you've got
Is enough to keep you struggling
Without hatching other plots

But justify yourself!
Don't satisfy yourself!
You should be out there voting
Say the power mongers gloating

You hide behind the left or right
To add power to your claims
But what you're really saying
Doesn't need theories to explain

Self glorification
Is what you really mean
The glory you say you despise
Is what makes it more obscene

I'll fight to make life better
In any way I can
I'll break the rules that you tie to me
If it means staying who I am

Don't tell me how to live my life
Don't tell me what to do
Repression is always brought about
By people with politics and attitudes like you

And politics
And attitudes
And you
