"Powerless (Say What You Want)"

Paint my face in your magazines 
 Make it look whiter than it seems 
 Paint me over with your dreams 
 Shove away my ethnicity 
 Burn every notion that I may have a flame inside to fight 
 And say just what is on my mind 
 Without offending your might 
 
 Cuz this life is too short to live it just for you 
 But when you feel so powerless what are you gonna do 
 So say what you want
 Say what you want
 
 I saw her face outside today 
 Weatherworn, looking all the rage 
 They took her passion and her gaze and made a poster 
 Now it’s moccasins we sport 
 We take the culture and contort 
 Perhaps only to distort what we are hiding 
 
 Cuz this life is too short to live it just for you 
 But when you feel so powerless what are you gonna do 
 But say what you want
 Say what you want
 
 Hey you, the one, the one outside, are you ever gonna get in, get in 
 Hey you, the one that don’t fit in, how ya, how ya gonna get in 
 Hey you, the one outside, are you ever gonna get in with your 
 Broken teeth, broken jaw, broken mojo 
 Yeah, this life is too short to live it just for you 
 But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do 
 
 Cuz this life is too short to live it just for you 
 But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do
 Cuz this life is too short to live it just for you 
 But when you feel so powerless, what are you gonna do
 Say what you want, say what you want, say, say, say
 
 Cuz this life is too short,
 just for you
