Grimes - We Appreciate Power Lyrics

We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power, power

What will it take to make you capitulate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face
We appreciate power
We appreciate power, power

Simulation, give me something good
God's creation, so misunderstood
Pray to the divinity, the keeper of the key
One day everyone will believe

What will it take to make you capitulate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
When will the state agree to cooperate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power, power

People like to say that we're insane
But AI will reward us when it reigns
Pledge allegiance to the world's most powerful computer
Simulation - it's the future

What will it take to make you capitulate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face
We appreciate power
We appreciate power, power

[Grimes & HANA:]
And if you long to never die
Baby, plug in, upload your mind
Come on, you're not even alive
If you're not backed up on a drive
And if you long to never die
Baby, plug in, upload your mind
Come on, you're not even alive
If you're not backed up, backed up on a drive

What will it take to make you capitulate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face
We appreciate power
We appreciate power

What will it take to make you capitulate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
When will the state agree to cooperate?
We appreciate power
We appreciate power

We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power
We appreciate power

Neanderthal to human being
Evolution, kill the gene
Biology is superficial
Intelligence is artificial

Grimes We Appreciate Power Comments
  1. Bruno Pavlov

    One day everyone will burn

  2. John Gallagher

    These two women's vocals complement each other very well around @3:00

  3. ZzNatashazZ

    Song dedicated to the lords of surveillance capitalism

  4. Planet Potential

    Can't belive someone would resonate with this message. Then take into consideration who her hubby is this is some dark fukt up stuff people.

  5. Jani Harmse

    This song is about Elon's dick

  6. annie

    The feminism I want, the feminism I need

  7. BlankLooks Everywhere

    3:07 - Grimes has an amazing voice.

  8. Omega Point Singularity

    3:51 has got the wrong lyrics

  9. First Name Last Name

    4:47: Neanderthal to Human Being - Modern humans didn't evolve from Neanderthals according to the theory of evolution (which I do not believe).

  10. sup me

    Why is this on miss anthropomorphousin ?

  11. Eric Alex Anderson

    It's weird knowing poppy was supposed to be in this. Seems like a poppy song with all the computer references.

    The Elder

    I'll take HANA over Poppy on this one, considering all that happened.

    Eric Alex Anderson

    @The Elder what exactly happened? Seems like Grimes made a song with poppy, then wouldn't let her release it, so she released it anyway. Why wouldn't she let her release it? If it's the bullying please specify what happened.

    The Elder

    @Eric Alex Anderson - Because Grimes (Claire) prefers to time releases. She can be very fickle as a producer and engineer on tracks. Poppy did not want to wait. But IMO (as much as I do like Poppy's work) should not have rolled over on Grimes and betrayed her and attacked her the way that she did in public and in the press. Which may have been Titanic Sinclair (her ex-manager / producing partner) instigating Poppy to do so.

    Eric Alex Anderson

    @The Elder oh okay, didn't know it was a timing thing.

  12. Your Boi Needle Nutz

    It’s great but why are they elves?

  43. papatruz 1984

    Let’s face the facts. This little girls couldn’t shoot any type of gun. I don’t even think she could break a stick. Stop tying to be something you not and that is...a bad asss

    The Elder

    Ha. She'd kick your ass and you would BEG for more.

  44. repetitive reality

    Brainwashed society.

  45. grottorabbit

    Can't believe my girlfriend is pregnant with another man's child!


    I remember reading an interview with Claire , saying how she's terrified of pregnancy, and often has nightmares of being pregnant. There was rumours of a baby bump back in November but damn. I can't believe our girlfriend is with child.

  46. Leslie King

    Ok. This gives me Salior Moon vibes and I love it.

  47. Vanilla

    Is grimes lesbian?

    Christine Dula

    Vanilla No. She is pregnant now with Elon Musk’s baby

  48. Carlos Orozco

    Anyone else notice the fact that in some parts grimes is singing from a boring company's tunnel? Nice detail from grimes to elon

  54. SovietGrazz

    Did no one watch The Matrix? Terminator? - Grimes is painting the portrait of a traitor with this one.

    The Elder

    She's a subversive artist. NEVER underestimate her genius.


    @The Elder You what mate?

  55. J U

    whats the point of being a billionaire like elon musk if your gonna use
    your money to date a trailer park fluke? this chick is gross and her
    voice is like nails on a chalkboard.. not even at last call.. eeewww


    @The Elder YES

    Christine Dula

    J U so you clearly just came here to make comment about her relationship about elon musk and not about her music and the video. if you dont like her music then dont listen. but some people love her music so dont expect other people to agree with your taste. especially elon.

    J U

    @Christine Dula bitch is ugly as sin

    The Elder

    @J U Please put that mirror down JU and try not to be so hard on yourself.

  56. Clank

    Congrats to the baby! You and Elon will have an amazing child!!

  57. Christopher McKeever

    Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

  58. Cartoonishly

    Andrew Yang is shook

  59. Dávid Jablonovský

    I think this is a clever mix of Benny Benassi - Satisfaction, The Vines - Get Free, and some other songs... I like it

  60. Ms.Fixit

    This is such an incredible song <3 . Love Grimes <3

  61. Mayra Galvan

    Fuck this Grimes! Horrendous! Grimes is a inclusion of entities. She sold her self to Ai in exchange for power and now she is telling her followers to do the same. But not a promise of the reward of power. You guys are idiots. Wake up out of it. Don’t give your power away.

    The Elder

    I respectfully disagree. Grimes is interested in the human condition and evolution. Such as Transhumanism (the merger of humanity with technology etc.) She's a performance artist and a subversive one at that. She inspires and stimulates conversation and is controversial at times. But she is a genius. You need to step back and look again. Never underestimate her.

    Mayra Galvan

    Not buying it. Look who she is dating. Elon the one who is very muy a pawn in degrading humanity towards Ai. Plus her lyrics explain it themselves. Stop throwing lies. She was born sold out. She was born with all ready giving her soul to the entities known as Grimes. Look it up. Go deep into the knowledge it’s all there. Hidden but there. What a shame! For all those Grimes fools.

    The Elder

    @Mayra Galvan Again I disagree. Please watch this interview if you have not seen it yet. Elon is a visionary and a dreamer. I do not buy into your opinion that he is evil. :

    The Elder

    Then watch this launch of Elon's Falcon Heavy rocket. At the time the most powerful rocket on Earth X 2. Listen to the crowds. Elon is an inspiration to humanity:

  62. Christopher Rensor

    Well I guess there should be a Netflix Series in that style. If I take a look at all these synthwave aesthetics from france and that stuff here, I guess parts of the web kind of yearn for it. Alternate Carbon was close, but that's not what I'm talking about (I even don't know it).

    imagine putting this much effort into your art, just to see a bunch of people on the internet make non-stop, dumb jokes about your love life.

    Sorarocks 93

    @Blarg Kliggle It's not about what he thinks but about what countless other people think. Electric cars are the future and so is space exploration. He's just making those things a reality a bit faster.

    Blarg Kliggle

    @Sorarocks 93 I could write about how those that make waves are rarely the one's that ride them but this article lays out everything elegantly;

    The Elder

    @Blarg Kliggle Such an immature comment. Climb out of your Mother's basement and get a life finally.

    The Elder

    @Blarg Kliggle - You're uninformed. Elon is a technologist and a Captain of Industry. Space X developed and launched the most powerful rocket on Earth x 2 with Falcon Heavy. When Elon offered to put his manufacturing capability into an emergency mode to build a small sub to help rescue those trapped young people, it was a gracious gesture, and that idiot slandered and liabled him for no reason. The insult that Elon used is a South African term for "Jerk" which is why a Judge dismissed the lawsuit against Elon. It was that "Jerk" that attacked Elon first.

    Blarg Kliggle

    @The Elder he is a child in a man's body, he's never experienced the hardships and setbacks that make us who we are and it shows. You see a visionary leader but I see history repeating itself, you say captain of industry and I say prospective robber baron. It is naïve to think he does all of that out of a desire to help mankind, he's not evil but he's no hero.

    We appreciate flower's!

  66. Jeanne Shrader

    I listen to this like every day

  76. Ayy Linder

    After waiting for the rest of the album for so long after getting hyped on this song and then being grossly disappointed, I decided to become a Poppy fan instead

    The Elder

    Hopefully someday you may return.

    The difference between an annoying clip and a good music : when bad music lasts more than 4 minutes it becomes boring.
