All right!

Hey little sister, do you know what time it was?
When you finally seen all your broken dreams come crashing down your door
I said, they demand an answer and they demand it quick
Or the questions fade and the wasted days come crawling back for more

And I say, do you know where the power lies
And who pulls the strings?
Do you know where the power lies?
I said, it starts and ends with you

The face of isolation, well, that's one you recognize
When you can't get straight, it's a lonely place and it's the one you do despise
I said, boredom is for sale now and helplessness you feel
It's a wounded dove and the hawks are above, blood splattered on a reel to reel

And I say, do you know where the power lies
And who pulls the strings?
Do you know where the power lies?
I said, it starts and ends with you

Yeah, I was almost over and my world was almost gone
And in a sudden rush I could almost touch the things that I'd done wrong
My jungle's made of concrete through silence I could feel
Oh, my aim is true and I'll walk on through these mountains made of steel

And I say, do you know where the power lies
And who pulls the strings?
Do you know where the power lies?
I said, it starts and ends with you

Oh I said, it starts and ends with you
I said, it starts and ends with you
