The Power Lyrics

The Power feat. Olinga Njang

Hook, Olinga Njang:
youth can move the world X2
youth can move the world when in action

Verse1, Karim Rushdy:
they take your mind and they’re attacking it/
they’re just some blood suckin’ money – hungry draculas/
yo they say that life is tough, aint no way that you can battle it/
and put you in a cloud of confusion; labyrinth/
so now you’re jaded, dreams so faded/
say you’re livin’ that life, but really you’re livin’ wasted/
this is a digital age, don’t be a digital slave/
don’t gotta sacrifice you’re life to be brave/
they think that if you’re young then your brain you can’t use/
so they make fake realities that they hand you/
and stuff it in your ears as if you can’t hear/
the truth.
the power’s in the hands of the youth!/
say:

Chorus, Olinga Njang:
remember The Bab, he was a young man/
He gave up His life to promote the cause/
remember Anis, he was a young boy/
he gave up his life to promote the cause/
remember Badi, he was a young man/
he gave up his life to promote the cause/
remember Quddus, he was a young man/
he gave up his life to promote the cause/

Verse2, Karim Rushdy:
there’s people gettin’ rich with the hype and the fall back/
over the transient things that we gawk at/
tell me where the line of consuming stops at/
when the value of what is priced high isn’t all that/
it’s probably made by child in Vietnam/
or a girl in Cambodia that’s workin’ till the dawn/
so the thugs from Thailand don’t try to buy her little sister/
driven by the tears of her mother when she kissed her/
goodbye/
but yeah, i guess you’re lookin’ kinda fly/
with all that fresh gear that you just buyed/
i mean bought/
what’s the vocabulary I’m taught/
swag, swag, it’s scary is it not?/
or is it just me, am I going crazy/
isn’t it wrong what they’ve done in Iran with BIHE?/
I guess that freedom everywhere’ a silhouette/
over there they can’t study, over here we’re still in debt/
say:

Chorus

Bridge, Karim Rushdy:
they think that if you’re young then your brain you can’t use/
so they make fake realities that they hand you/
and stuff it in your ears as if you can’t hear/
the truth.
the power’s in the hands of the youth!/
say:

Outro, Olinga Njang:
remember Tahirih, she was a lady/
remember AbdulBaha when he was young/
Shogi Effendi, he was a young man/
remember AbdulBaha when he was young/
youth can move the world when in action

the power’s in the hands of the youth.
