lyrics

Falling through a dreamscape/ a dystopian conglomerate/ a multi-faceted spider web where we will live and die our fate/ but Oh empire oh empire/ how far can you see/ where power transcends disparities begin/ find one source of capital/ and you will find one neck to behead/ but oh empire/ your prisons/ may be the death of me
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
But we are not afraid to die/ and we will dig your grave in time/ oh empire empire we will bring you to your knees/ there is blood in this brick/ there is filth in the air/ these streams are full of chemicals from the mountains you laid bare/
Whoa
Oh empire empire can you hear us scream
Doom/ Gloom
Your rape culture picks up/ where your white supremacy drops off/ your capital employs soldiers at home and abroad/ but we have more than your chains/ we have our radical queer ways/ we have your downfall in our hands/ that we haven't washed in days/
Oh empire empire how far can you see
Oh empire empire how far can you see
Oh empire empire we will bring you to your knees
Oh empire empire can you hear us scream
Whoa
Because we are not afraid to die and we will dig your grave in time/
oh empire empire we will bring you to your knees/ your towers are gravesites/ your colonies are landmines/ oh empire empire can you hear us scream
Whoa
Oh empire empire how far can you see
