Power & Control
Marina & the Diamonds Lyrics


Power and control

Give a little, get a lot
That's just how you are with love
Give a little, get a lot
Yeah, you may be good-looking
But you're not a piece of art

Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall
Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall

Women and men, we are the same
But love will always be a game
We give and take a little more
Eternal game of tug and war

Think you're funny, think you're smart
Think you're gonna break my heart
Think you're funny, think you're smart
Yeah, you may be good-looking
But you're not a piece of art

Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall
Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall

Women and men, we are the same
But love will always be a game
A human vulnerability
Doesn't mean that I am weak

That I am weak, I am weak
I am weak, I am weak, weak
Weak, weak, weak, weak

Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall
Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall

Women and men, we are the same
But love will always be a game
We give and take a little more
Eternal game of tug and war

Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall
Power and control
I'm gonna make you fall

I'm gonna make you fall
We give and take a little more
'Cause all my life I've been controlled
You can't have peace without a war
Without a war, without a war

Give a little, get a lot
That’s just how you are with love
Give a little, get a lot
Yeah, you may be good looking
But you’re not a piece of art

[Chorus]
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall

[Post-Chorus 1]
Women and men, we are the same
But love will always be a game
We give and take a little more
Eternal game of tug and war

[Verse 2]
Think you’re funny, think you’re smart
Think you’re gonna break my heart
Think you’re funny, think you’re smart
Yeah, you may be good looking
But you’re not a piece of art

[Chorus]
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall

[Post-Chorus 2]
Women and men we are the same
But love will always be a game
A human vulnerability
Doesn't mean that I am weak

[Interlude]
That I am weak, I am weak
I am weak, I am weak, weak
Weak, weak, weak, weak

[Chorus]
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall

[Post-Chorus 1]
Women and men, we are the same
But love will always be a game
We give and take a little more
Eternal game of tug and war

[Chorus]
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall
Power and control
I’m gonna make you fall

[Outro]
I’m gonna make you fall
We give and take a little more
‘Cause all my life I’ve been controlled
You can’t have peace without a war
Without a war, without a war

Part 1: fear and loathing
After committing suicide, Electra begins yet another new life. She has high hopes for this one, hoping she won't be unhappy like in her previous lives
Part 2: radioactive
Electra finds a new boyfriend, and she feels happy, a change from her previous experiences. She ambitiously dives into the future
Part 3: the archetypes
Electra begins to feel like multiple people: a beauty queen, a housewife, a home wrecker/ heartbreaker, and a teen idle
Part 4: Primadona:
Electra lets the beauty queen part of her personality take over
Part 5: Su-Barbie-a
Electra begins to feel like the beauty queen is false, overly perfect, and transparent, and that everyone knows it's not really her. She feels like a Barbie, perfect but fake
Part 6: fear and loathing
Electra's boyfriend, sick of all of her issues, breaks up with her. She explodes, and tries to keep him, but he leaves.

This was taken from a genius comment on "Radioactive"


Part 1: Fear and Loathing is Electra getting rid of who she once was. Perhaps it was after a breakup or something? This is not the first time, either. (been many people different times).

Part 2: Radioactive is Electra meeting a new man who she feels like she's on top of the world with. Together, they are toxic and destructive (when you're around me, I'm radioactive) but again, she feels amazing with him. Also, she tries blonde. Perhaps her boyfriend enjoys it.

Part 3: The Archetypes. Electra actually dyes her hair blonde and actually becomes Electra Heart, and is showing the world who she has become. Also, she is revealing that she and the man are now married (housewife).

Part 4: Primadonna. Electra is sure of who she is now, and she gets into a whole "I don't need anyone but myself" place. She feels like the queen of the world.

Part 5: SU-BARBIE-A, Electra's husband doesn't appreciate her telling him he's unneeded, and so they begin to argue constantly, as evidenced by the arguing in the background.

Part 6: Power and Control. Electra's marriage is beginning to fall apart, and they both begin cheating on each other. It becomes a literal power play for both of them.

Part 7: How To Be a Heartbreaker, Electra is now divorced from her husband and is now fooling around with several new men. Also, she removed the blonde from her hair, going back to her natural dark hair.

Part 8: E.V.O.L, Electra begins to realise that she is a little heartbroken and "fucked up" after divorcing her husband. The fun with new boys has run dry.

Part 9: State of Dreaming, Electra realises that she ruined her own life by being narcissistic and unappreciative. She realises that she's been "living in a make-believe land" where she didn't need anyone but herself.

Part 10: Lies. Electra gets her husband back. Sort of. He doesn't love her anymore, and she's completely heartbroken. Their relationship now is purely sexual, and she knows it will never be mended.

Part 11: Electra Heart. Electra's life has fizzed out, and after ruining her marriage and losing her husband and all the happiness she ever had, Electra kills herself.

Also: Perhaps her husband had a girlfriend or wife when he and Electra first met in Radioactive, and thats where "Homewrecker" comes in.
