It is God who gives power from heaven,

Through His works--the solar system.

He doesn't force anyone to do what they don't want to do,

So high up above the seven, He leaves it all to you.


From the solar system you get power,

Like rain shower.

But they don't command you to do what you don't want to do,

So then, it's inside of you.


You are the one making the move,

It could be positive or negative.

Still you need to prove,

You've got power to live.


When you get your pay,

The paymaster doesn't tell you how to spend it,

You can waste it every day,

Every single bit.


It is you who is in control,

But not alone.

You can leave off the alcohol,

Or sit down and moan.


It is you who has the reins,

To steer the horses.

Down through the narrow lanes,

And to be careful, when the carriage tosses.


 We are then walking around with the enrgies of the solar system within us,

All mixed up to set us on the go.

We can rage, we can fight and cuss,

The mystery is there, still we don't know.


Who or what is doing the compelling,

We still act, shout, and all that yelling!

The energies within us causes us to act,

For good or bad, that is a fact.


Still, we don't know what makes us to so,

In the future, we'll probably get to know.

But for now, we have the power to live,

And lots and lots of love to give.
