John Congleton & The Nighty Nite – The White Powerless Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You’re an unwelcomed awakening
A fragile bag of chemicals
And you’re a knee locked revelation, waking dream
A hungry, hungry wormhole
I can cherish and hold each abdominal toll, joyless cold
Can you cherish and hold every original misconception of my soul?
Yeah, best check your hands for missing fingers once I’ve shaked them
Are you wearing a wire? Have you been compromised?
Are you being followed? Do they peep you through your peephole?
Rip you up limb from limb? You need only let me in

[Chorus]
Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese!
I got oceans of insanity, I got mountains of profanity
I got spoonfuls of the irony all for you
Just let me in

[Verse 2]
Oh, dear Anneliese, how you frighten me!
White powerless, yeah
Cold and remote like the love of God
White powerless
I could cherish and hold every impossible heart-crossed oath
I could cherish and love every original misconception of your soul
There’ll be company men, there’ll be sitcoms
There’ll be bedpans, there’ll be fodder for friends
You need only let me in

[Chorus]
Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese!
I’ve got oceans of insanity, I’ve got mountains of profanity
I’ve got spoonfuls of the irony all for you
I’m a bastion of banality in my fortress of futility
Near my mansion mediocrity all for you

[Outro]
Oh, Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese!
Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese! Anneliese!
Just let me in
Just let me in
Just let me in
Just let me in
