Song from Far Beyond Driven

Strength Beyond Strength is the first track off of Pantera's seventh album Far Beyond Driven.



 There is nothing
 No education
 No family life to open my arms to
 You'd say that my job is today, yet gone tomorrow
 I'll be broke in a gutter
 I know the opinion
 A broken record
 Fuck you and your college dream
 Fact is we're stronger than all
 You're working for perfect bodies
 Perfect minds and perfect neighbors
 But I'm helping to legalize dope on your pristine streets
 And I'm making a fortune
 You're muscle and gall
 Naive at best
 I'm bone, brain and cock
 Deep down stronger than all
 A sad state of affairs
 A crippled America
 A pipe dream
 Stronger than all
 (Lament for a rookie officer, punk ass weak little lamb
 For the mob, truly, does rule at this particular time)
 We've grown into a monster
 An arrogant, explosive motherfuck
  Hard as a rock. Shut like a lock
 Finally, the president in submission
 He holds out his hand on your television and draws back a stump
 It's too late for some, far too late
 (No more holdbacks
 No more paying a cops paycheck
 Let him bust his own child
 The son that heeds my word and smokes my dope
 The daughter that sucks me off and snorts cheap anything) 
 Hail Kings
 The new Kings
 Stronger than all
 A simple process to legalize
 There would not be a choice but to take our side
 Be there no question of certain strengths
 Know this intention
 Forever stronger than all
