Columbia Records have finally released the most-awaited track titled Power is Power. The song is performed by SZA, The Weeknd and Travis Scott. Now when you start dissecting the lyrics you will agree that this song is undoubtedly about Targaryens. It is not just that, the voices behind the lyrics also prove this theory correct. One female singer and two male singers may sound like a typical combo but here it also has a subliminal message.
Aegon Targaryen a.k.a. Jon Snow
The song kicks off by The Weeknd singing following lyrics:
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
The words are self explanatory. This definitely is about Jon Snow and the fact that a knife in his heart couldn’t end his story in Game of Thrones. When he was killed, Melisandre brought him back to life.
SZA as Daenerys Targaryen
Now most of the people believe that the SZA portion of the song is related to Daenerys.
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.
She has been down for the coldest war? Check. She knows where she has been cause she has bled before? Check. Hint: In season one she lost her child. Lets not focus on the last line where she claims only love could kill her. Which means either Jon is going to kill her or Drogo is coming back in the form of white-walker, which is highly doubtful but you never know.
Travis Scott as Dany’s Family member?
Its sounds odd but there is a chance that the Night King riding Viserion is another Targaryen. Since only Targaryens can ride a dragon and he seems to have no problem with it. So who is it going to be? Let’s see if the lyrics give any hint:
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.
Now few of the Game of thrones fans believe that these lyrics are about the white-walker-who-might-be-a-Targaryen and Arya Stark. We personally believe it is not about Arya Stark. Instead, it might be Dany’s Daddy cause his little baby is slaying anyone who is not bending the knee for her. We will know soon enough who the mystery guy is.
What it is not about
In season 2 of Game of Thrones, Cersei Lannister countered Littlefinger’s Knowledge is Power argument with Power is Power. However, this song is not about her. At least that is what we all want to believe. Though, it should have been.
26th April is coming
Do not forget to check the For The Throne album being released on April 26. The complete track list has been announced by HBO and it looks great. Moreover, lyrics of the other songs may give us more theories and predictions for the series finale. So, Fingers Crossed.
