powers that be lyrics – disarray

staring in the face of god*
wondering how i let myself fall down this low
i hate myself i hate my life
wish i could turn back time and not be born
my life
spend my time in an endless grind
this is what i have become
a victim of a system that i cannot rise above
but i will not submit myself
to your world of greed
i will not surrender my life
to the powers that be
the powers that
powers that be
all my life i’ve been a slave
held down by the factors i can’t control
you force feed pain, manipulate
i’m sickened by everything that you stand for
my life
spend my time in an endless grind
this is what i have become
a victim of a system that i cannot rise above
but i will not submit myself
to your world of greed
i will not surrender my life
to the powers that be
the powers that
powers that be
weight of this fallen world pulls me under
try to lift myself from the ashes
the powers that be
