Does anyone know a calm or upbeat song about "feeling like a bunch of puppets in someone's twisted game"?

Hello, Yahoo! I need a song that sounds calm or happy, but which deals with the idea of a higher power (divine or political) treating people like puppets in a game, manipulating them for their own gain. It HAS to be from the perspective of the victims. Also, the singer KNOWS he and everybody around him are "someone's toys", but feels powerless to do a damn thing about it.

Are there such songs? Preferably from 1990's or 2000's.

    The Principal by Melanie Martinez is the closest thing I can think of off the top of my head. (It's about Trump.)

    "From a Distance" has lyrics that fit the bill. "God is watching us, God is watching us, God is watching us...from a distance."
