Empire

Lyrics

Let's build an Empire, a Superstate Where love is money and fear is hate Let’s build a system, be an engineer Huddle in lamplight, lifetime career Tear it apart and start over again

Let’s burn the budget, bleed the ground Stop public protests, that won't make a sound Lets screw the farmers, license their grain Make us dependent upon your reign Tear it apart and start over again

Let’s bribe the umpire, to fix the match Tell the fishermen, throw back half your catch Siphon your water; sell it back again Sell propaganda; Bogeymen Tear it apart and start over again

Let's build an Empire, a Superstate Where love is money and fear is hate Let’s build a system, be an engineer Huddle in lamplight, lifetime career Tear it apart and start over again
