Portrait Of Authority

Jody Beaulac


Rythm 1 (4x)








C A# C A# C A# C A# C A# C A# C A#


C A# C A# C G

Nothing more, nothing less, an icon on the wall, decoration and duress


C A# C A# C G

That which many strive to be, it's a marble statue staring over me


C G C A# C G C

And nobody has the will to tear it down, it determins wrong and right


C G C A# C G

But to me it's just a stereotype, and it makes us lose our sight



G C A# D

The portrait of authority, (portrait of authority)


G C D A#

You tell me that's what I'm supposed to be, (portrait of authority)



Rythm 1 (4x)


(continue w/ lyrics)

Another time, another man

An oppressive intrusion and a plague across his land

And it haunts him every day

It tells him that he has no chance, his options fade away


And he lives his life prepared to tear it down

But he can't muster the support

And to him it's just a stereotype of his life-long fight


The portrait of authority (portrait of authority)

It embodies what he cannot be (portrait of authority)

It's what he cannot be
