  • You are the power and the glory
    You are the weakness in defeat
    Like the rise and the fall of the British Empire
    You make me sick with your conceit
    You are the weakness
    You are the sickness that's in my soul
    You are you are you are the maker
    You are called greed and you're cheat
    You are you are you are the deceiver
    You are not welcome in my life
    You are the maker of illusions
    You break up every dream we've ever made
    And as I rise up from the ashes
    You raise your ugly head you have no shame
    Too long you have lain there

    Too far too long too strong I will break you hold
    You are you are you are the maker
    You are called greed and you're a cheat
    You are you are you are the deceiver
    You are not welcome in my life
    You sow the seeds of our destruction
    You break up everything we've done
    You hold you hands out for forgiveness
    You bite the hands the hands that feed
    You are the weakness
    You are the sickness that's in my soul
    You are you are you are the maker
    You are called greed and you're a cheat
    You are you are you are the deceiver
    You are not welcome in my life Writer/s: PETTERSON
