A PERFECT CIRCLE


Weak And Powerless Lyrics

Tilling my own grave to keep me level, jam another dragon down the hole
Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren
One that pushes me along and leaves me
So desperate and ravenous, so weak and powerless over you

Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of China
White as Dracula as I approach the bottom
Desperate and ravenous, so weak and powerless over you

Little angel go away, come again some other day
The devil has my ear today, I'll never hear a word you say
He promised I would find a little solace and some peace of mind

Whatever, just as long as I don't feel
So desperate and ravenous, so weak and powerless
Desperate and ravenous, so weak and powerless over you, over you

The song is a about drug addiction and how people wether it's him or someone is weak and powerless over it. Hence the China White reference!

s is maynard, it is meant for us to interpret in our own way. he is talking about anything that inflicts pain, such as addiction, broken promises, heart break, stuff that causes you to feel weak

maynard is quite possibly the greatest artist and songwriter to have lived. The common interpretation of this song is his struggle with a drug addiction, possibly heroin or cocaine, but, seeing as thi

the entire album is about addiction in general. MJK said none of it was personal but about friends he knew that suffered the battle.

it's pretty obvious that the song is about opiates, and probably just heroin in particular. whoever caught the china white, good call. this is very obviously NOT about alcohol.

It looks like they slyly slipped the phrase China White into the lyrics. We all know what that means...
