Verse

Oh, powers that be,

I gave unto thee.

I trusted the cards in your hands.

Now look where that made me stand.

Verse

Oh, powers that be,

You betrayed me.

You made me believe in prayers,

But you were never even there.

Chorus

Use twisted logic

To explain war, disease and death.

Never get a thing,

Blame it on your own lack of faith.

There seems to be an answer

For everything that's wrong.

Well, I don't wanna hear it,

I'm done playing along.

Verse

Oh, powers that be,

Enjoy my misery.

It's your hard work that resulted in

All my pain and all my suffering.

Verse

Oh, powers that be,

You've defeated me.

There's no chance in hell I'll be loved.

I hope you're laughing up above.

Chorus

Use twisted logic

To explain war, disease and death.

Never get a thing,

Blame it on your own lack of faith.

There seems to be an answer

For everything that's wrong.

Well, I don't wanna hear it,

I'm done playing along.
