    山东十一运夺金:The New Game of Thrones Song "Power Is Power" Has So Many Easter Eggs and References to the Show

    SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott teamed up for an original track inspired by GoT.

    • "Power Is Power," a new song by SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott, was released today. The track will appear on For the Throne, an album inspired by Game of Thrones.
    • The lyrics are filled with plenty of GoT references like "ice and snow," "a knife in my heart," and "burn it down."
    • The full For the Throne album will be released on April 26.

      SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott have just released a new collaboration, "Power Is Power," which appears on For the Throne, an upcoming album inspired by Game of Thrones in honor of its final season. The trio takes turns on the upbeat pop-hip-hop track, describing power, control, and determination in ways relating to the hit HBO fantasy show.

      To start off, there are plenty of ice and fire references. (GoT is based on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, after all.) The Weeknd starts with the line "I was born of the ice and snow," and the chorus includes the lyric "Now watch me burn it down," which is very Targaryen-esque.

      The repeated line "heavy is the crown," hints at the highly sought-after position of King or Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. The refrain is a major nod to Jon Snow and his resurrection with the lines "A knife in my heart couldn’t slow me down," and "I rise from my scars, nothing hurts me now." (One could even argue the "knife in my heart" phrase also refers to the Night King, since he was created when dragonglass was plunged into his chest.)

      The title, "Power Is Power," is a reference to the show itself. It's a callback to a conversation Cersei Lannister and Petyr Baelish (AKA Littlefinger) had in Season 2. Littlefinger argues that "knowledge is power," but Cersei tells him defiantly that "power is power," and orders her guards to seize him to prove her point.


      Read the full lyrics to "Power Is Power" below.

      I was born of the ice and snow
      With the winter wolves in the dark, alone
      The wildest night I became the one
      And you’ll know you’re mine when the silence comes
      Heavy is the crown
      Only for the weak
      A knife in my heart couldn’t slow me down
      ‘Cause power is power, my fire never goes out
      I rise from my scars, nothing hurts me now
      ‘Cause power is power, now watch me burn it down
      I been down for the coldest war
      And I know where I been 'cause I bled before
      How do I know if I let you stay
      How do I know if we did it your way
      You wouldn't take my place, put me away, I'd die looking up at your face
      How do I ever know?
      Who can I trust?
      Feelings of emptiness
      Only love could kill me, god bless
      A knife in my heart couldn’t slow me down
      ‘Cause power is power, my fire never goes out
      I rise from my scars, nothing hurts me now
      ‘Cause power is power, now watch me burn it down
      Who’s hotter, been a monster with a crown
      So swamped by high water, keep your head up, you might drown
      I’m the world it’s way colder, by the day we count it down
      Been around, just been waiting up now, she gone come around
      I took a drag, bust it out the gate, my little baby, slay
      I wore a flag, put that on my face, ain’t nobody safe
      Lift the mask, they gon’ have to see what they can’t erase
      I took a lot so I took it back (verbal gun shots)
      Danger’s on my mind
      Ain’t no knife, dagger, bullet that can do it
      ‘ fore you yea u know I go right straight thru it
      Heavy is the crown
      Never for a queen (oh yeah!)
      A knife in my heart couldn’t slow me down
      ‘Cause power is power, and fire never goes out
      I rise from my scars, nothing hurts me now
      ‘Cause power is power, now watch me burn it down
      Oh yeah (yeah!)
      Now watch me burn it down
