Take the Power Back Lyrics

Bring that shit in! Uggh!

In the right light, study becomes insight
But the system that dissed us
Teaches us to read and write

So called facts are...

    As far as I can interpret it's about how the government is polluting the minds of the young nation by lying to them and justifying poor decisions made by the country-or a very biased view.

    How the curriculum brainwashes children into joining the military, or buying into the arms race.

    To add to that, it is about how easily the new American generation can be deceived by teachers and other authorities and believe whatever they are told in schools.

    Take the Power Back is one of the most powerful songs by this group. The song is very easy to understand. The song is about how the Republicans and Democrats who took over America, which is supposed to be a free nation. They took it over, and only accepted one cultural belief. When he said "who cares about only one culture, and that is why we gotta take the power back..." Zach is simply protesting about how the government has taken complete control over the country, and that we the people should take it back.
