We are
​powerless



We are

Oh god

​panic! The crowd was manic

With everybody screaming and shoving and shouting and slapping
And everyone’s frantic!
What’s happening with you?

[CARLA/VANESSA/WOMEN]
We are powerless!

We are
​powerless!

[DANIELA]
Mira, mi amor

Házme un favor!

Despiérta la abuela y a lo mejor ella tiene una vela!

Estuve bailando cuando vino el apagón
Aqui hay gente pero no sé quienes son!
