Lyric "Powerless (Say What You Want)"

Paint my face in your magazines
Make it look whiter than it seems
Paint me over with your dreams
Shove away my ethnicity
Burn every notion that I
May have a flame inside to fight
Is there just what is on my mind
Without offending your might

[Chorus]
’Cause this life is too short to live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do?

So say what you want
Say what you want

I saw her face outside today
Weatherworn, lookin’ all the rage
Took her passion and her gaze
And made a poster
Now it’s moccasins we sport
We take the culture and contort
Perhaps only to distort
What we are hidin’

[Chorus]
’Cause this life is too short to live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do?

But say what you want
Say what you want (say, say, yeah)

[Bridge]
Hey you, the one the one outside, are you gonna get in, get in
Hey you, the one that don’t fit in, how ya, how ya gonna get in
Hey you, the one outside, are you ever gonna get in with your
Broken teeth, broken jaw, broken mojo

Yeah, this life is too short to live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do

[Chorus]
’Cause this life is too short to live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do?
’Cause this life is too short to live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do?

Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want

Say, say, say, say, yeah

Life is too short
Just for you
Feel powerless
Gonna do
