Love Over Power

Heaven help us to heed the call
To use our share of power for the good of all
We start out even then we seek an edge
We grab for more and then
Forget all that we said

Can you love love over power
Can you see this is the hour
It’s now

Over and over again
Always the same old story
The mighty rise, the mighty fall

Said I’d never crave power or wealth
Then when I had the choice
I took it for myself
Heaven help us, we don’t know why
We cannot quench the thirst,
Keep hunger satisfied

Can you love
Can you love love over power
Can you see this is the hour
It’s now

Over and over again
Always the same old story
The mighty rise, the mighty fall
Nothing seems to change…

Heaven help me in my house of glass
Drop these stones of judgment,
Let the anger pass
As kingdoms come and kingdoms go
Those who rule today tomorrow are laid low

Can you love
Can you love love over power
Can you see this is the hour
It’s now

Over and over again
Always the same old story
The mighty rise, the mighty fall
Nothing seems to change

Over and over again
Always the same old story
The mighty rise, the mighty fall

All that changes is the faces and the names
Yeah, nothing seems to change
All that changes is the faces and the names
Nothing seems to change
