Lyrics
:

You are the power and the glory
You are the weakness in defeat
Like the rise and fall of the British Empire
You make me sick with your conceit
You are the weakness
You are the sickness that�s in our souls
You sow the seeds for our destruction
To hell with everything that we've done
You hold your hands out for forgiveness
You bite the hands, the hands that feed
Too far you have pushed us
Too far too long too strong
I will break your hold

You are you are you are the maker
You are called greed and you�re a cheat
You are you are you are the deceiver
You are not welcome in my life

You are the maker of illusions
You break up every dream we�ve made
And as I rise up from the ashes
You raise your ugly head have you no shame

Too long you have lain there 
Too far too long too strong
Oh, I will break your hold

You are you are you are the maker
You are called greed and you�re a cheat
You are you are you are the deceiver
You are not welcome in my life

You are, you are the weakness
Within us, within us
You are the sickness that�s in my soul

You are you are you are the maker
You are called greed and you�re a cheat
You are the devil
You are you are you are the deceiver
The deceiver
You are not welcome in my life
