Empire Down

We live in a land where justice is dying
The rich are getting richer
And the poor are multiplying
Seems like corruption's got us all in a vice
Yeah if think that I'm crazy
Then you better think twice

I'm watching the empire go down
Down, down, watching the empire go down

An innocent man is wrongly accused
A woman and child are badly abused
It ain't just a matter of who's right or wrong
'Cos who pays the piper
Calls the song

I'm watching the empire go down
Down, down, watching the empire go down


I see the end of the constitution
Word on the street is revolution
No I can't look away from this suffering hate
I think we're aware that it's much too late
All the good men are either dead or gone
It's time to be counted
Time to be strong

I'm watching the empire go down
Down, down, watching the empire go down

Go back
