Kanye West - Power (Saturday Night Live Version) Lyrics

[Kanye West:]
I'm livin' in the 21st century
Doin' 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 tickin', I just count the hours
Stop trippin', I'm trippin' off the power
(21st century schizoid man)

The system broken, the schools 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 see you in the mornin'
Huh? I 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 tickin', I just count the hours
Stop trippin', I'm trippin' off the power
'Til then, fuck that, the World's ours

(21st century schizoid man)

The brown hero live from ground zero
Machine gun flow, made of ghetto Ross Perot
And this is disestablishmentarianism
With my night goggles on, yeah, military vision
And it's still a very Christian way to think about living
When you praying for freedom cause your mind been in prison
Cause they tryin to control every single big decision
You ain't effin' the system then why the eff is you living?
Look dog, you can cop whatever suits you on
Three piece, cuff links and the accoutrements
They been feeding us ishh without the nutrients
So I'm back with another hit to let the truth be known
And your boy still fresh with the Gucci on
Them Italians sure know how to make what the moulies want
And they really can't take what dude be on
But I be on the same thing til you prove me wrong

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

Colin Powells, Austin Powers
Lost in translation with a whole fuckin' nation
They say I was the obamanation (abomination) of Obama's nation
Well, that's a pretty bad way to start the conversation
At the end of day, goddammit, I'm killin' this shit
I know damn well y'all feelin' this shit
I don't need yo' pussy, bitch, I'm on my own dick
I ain't gotta power trip, who you goin' home with?
How 'Ye doin'? I'm survivin'
I was drinkin' earlier, now I'm drivin'
Where the bad bitches, huh? Where ya hidin'?
I got the power, make yo' life so excitin' (So excitin')

Now this would be a beautiful death
Jumpin' out the window
Lettin' everything go
Lettin' everything go

N-now-now this would be a beautiful death
Jumpin' out the window
Lettin' everything go
Lettin' everything go

Now this would be a beautiful death
Jumpin' out the window
Lettin' everything go
Lettin' everything go

You got the power to let power go
