POWER
Kanye West Lyrics


I'm living in that 21st century
Doing something mean to it
Do it better than anybody you ever seen do it
Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it
I guess every superhero need his theme music

No one man should have all that power
The clock's ticking, I just count the hours
Stop tripping, I'm tripping off the power
(21st-century schizoid man)

The system broken, and the school's closed, the prisons open
We ain't got nothin' to lose, ma'fucka, we rollin'
Huh? Ma'fucka, we rollin'
With some light-skinned girls and some Kelly Rowlands
In this white man's world, we the ones chosen
So goodnight, cruel world, I'll see you in the mornin'
Huh? I'll see you in the mornin'
This is way too much, I need a moment

No one man should have all that power
The clock's ticking, I just count the hours
Stop tripping, I'm tripping off the power
'Til then, fuck that, the world's ours

And they say, and they say
And they say, and they say
And they say, and they say
(21st-century schizoid man)

Fuck SNL and the whole cast
Tell 'em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass
More specifically, they can kiss my asshole
I'm an asshole? You niggas got jokes
You short-minded niggas thoughts is Napoleon
My furs is Mongolian, my ice brought the goalies in
Now I embody every characteristic of the egotistic
He knows he so fuckin' gifted
I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts
Got treasures in my mind but couldn't open up my own vault
My childlike creativity, purity and honesty
Is honestly being crowded by these grown thoughts
Reality is catching up with me
Taking my inner child, I'm fighting for custody
With these responsibilities that they entrusted me
As I look down at my diamond encrusted piece

Thinkin', no one man should have all that power
The clock's ticking, I just count the hours
Stop tripping, I'm tripping off the powder
'Til then, fuck that, the world's ours

And they say, and they say
And they say, and they say
And they say, and they say
(21st-century schizoid man)

Colin Powells, Austin Powers
Lost in translation with a whole fuckin' nation
They say I was the abomination of Obama's nation
Well that's a pretty bad way to start the conversation
At the end of the day, goddammit, I'm killin' this shit
I know damn well y'all feeling this shit
I don't need your pussy, bitch, I'm on my own dick
I ain't gotta power trip, who you goin' home with?
How 'Ye doing? I'm surviving
I was drinking earlier, now I'm driving
Where the bad bitches, huh? Where y'all hiding?
I got the power make your life so exciting

Now this will be a beautiful death
I'm jumping out the window
I'm letting everything go
I'm letting everything go
Mmm, now this will be a beautiful death
I'm jumping out the window
I'm letting everything go
I'm letting everything go
Now this will be a beautiful death
Jumping out the window
Letting everything go
Letting everything go
You got the power to let power go?
(21st-century schizoid man)

I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts
Got treasures in my mind but couldn't open up my own vault
My childlike creativity, purity and honesty
Is honestly being crowded by these grown thoughts
Reality is catchin' up with me
Takin' my inner child, I'm fighting for custody
With these responsibilities that they entrusted me
As I look down at my diamond encrusted piece
Thinkin', no one man should have all that power


Damn.

@Eebrohim nahhhh you're just slow AF.

He's talking about EGO DEATH.

He described it the entire fucking song you idiot.

My furs is Mongolian, my ice brought the goldies in
Now I embody every characteristic of the egotistic

POWER TRIP FROM HIS EGO ^

He knows, he so, fuckin' gifted


I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts
Got treasures in my mind but couldn't open up my own vault

HOW PLENTY PPL HAVE DOCUMENTED HOW ASCENSION PROCESS BEGINS ^
My childlike creativity, purity and honesty
Is honestly being crowded by these grown thoughts
Reality is catchin' up with me
Takin' my inner child, I'm fighting for custody
With these responsibilities that they entrusted me

ALSO WELL DOCUMENTED IN OVERCOMIMG THE EGO^

He killed the false sense of material power and gained actual power through killing his ego and ascending....don't believe me....plenty of resources avail on the shit. Go look up damn ego death with psychedelics.

This comment section seriously has some of the dumbest damn ppl in history in it... I'm trying to get like him so I can talk to stupid ppl softer, but not taday.



Marqui Rasheed

fake channel the rapping is not bad. Very lyrcial in fact:

“Short minded nigga’s thoughts is napoleon”

“They said I was the abomination of Obama’s nation”

“Scream from the haters got a nice ring to it, I guess every superhero needs his theme music”

“Taking my inner child, I’m fighting for the custody”

This song has several quotables.

I’m here just to appreciate the fact that Kanye used King Crimson

@Tieu Kha Vu turkish rapper sagopa kajmer did this too many years ago; if you wonder about it you can listen the intro of "Gölge Haramileri" by the way love kanye hahhaha

Carter Jamba

I literally came here to compare the two melodies from the songs and when I realized that he straight sampled it I went “NO FUCKING WAY”
