Music & Lyrics Plex Barnhart

Power Fool!

I don’t know where to go, I rise from below when I’m all alone


I don’t fair well when I hook up on the sly and shake down the sky

Pain was fought but never whispered in my middle ear
Sane was sought but never crisper in my swollen tears

Shock! Power Fool!

Enter my Elysium when you’ve had my fill of hell
Come and pray to altar egos, I know the verses well
Not a cause to celebrate the passing of the flame
Burn so bright, but half as long, a momentary gain

Shock! Power Fool!

I try to be what my love sees in me
But I wanna’ know who I am, who I am……

I can break on my own where others have shown
They’re NOT part of me
I wont hear of the bell, it wont toll for thee
I’ll chime on me knees

Has my life been just a part of someone else’s dream?
Can I sell my tender soul when I have lost the deed?
