​People That Have The Power To Shape The Future

This song is by Roine Stolt and appears on the album Wall Street Voodoo (2005).

Working a lifetime for a nominal fee
Maybe less but that's life for simple folks like you and me
All the obligations to that same old company...
They're driven by greed as far as I can see
All of your days that you invest in the labour
Tired and worn out at the end of the day
Waiting for fairness and the big reward
While your heart and soul begin to fade away

Come on stupid, what did you expect?
A share of the company? Wealth and respect?
They guys in the top don't even know your name
You're just one of the bricks in their tireless games
All of your dreams of a life in the sun
May be a bit too much to ask for in this life
But time has come to speak up louder my friend
Now people grow and reach out for the power

The People That Have The Power To Shape The Future
The power of a nation is the willpower of the people!
The tall and the gracious, will shape the most wonderous places
Hold on to your vision and the brightness of your selfless mission

You work and you sleep, watching TV while you eat
They feed you and deceive you and when you get old they will finally leave you
Still you do your best and that's a lot to meet up to what others do expect of you, but how do you do?
All that you long for is to shape your own life
Free from the pressure and pre-fabricated ideas of living
Life it is yours and it's your life only, so don't let them waste it and don't let them break you!

The People That Have The Power To Shape The Future
The power of a nation is the willpower of the people
The People That Have The Power To Shape The Future
The voices of the people, they want their rights, they want their lives
The voices of the streetlife will shape the world, it may take some time
Hold on to your vision and the brightness of your selfless mission
