MORE EMPIRE DAYS
I can see it from my living room
A cold glass and steel tower of doom
You can see it from everywhere that means it can see you too
They work 24/7 they never stop
Theyíre building it higher and higher with no end and no top
At night itís lit up beautifully like a Christmas tree
But thereís no giving here itís only purpose is to take from you and me
A monument of gold for our Empire we used to call a Democracy
Itís going to get stranger Itís going get stranger
Theyíre going to want more empire days
Theyíre going to want more endless war and Guantanamo Bays
Theyíre going to want more prisons more guns in the streets
Theyíre going to want more surveillance and militarized police
Theyíre going to want us to keep us fighting amongst ourselves so we are blind to what they need
To keep building it higher impossible to climb impossible to climb for the 99
They say itís never enough never profitable enough
They keep it going with payoffs, dirty tricks and blackmail
Then say ďthereís nothing we can do to stop now itís too big to failĒ
The lust for gold has led us so far from the trail
The biggest monster now the world has ever seen
Always hungers for more power and mindless greed
It needs more bullets more blood more hate and less love
But thereís nowhere they can hide nowhere they can hideÖ from the 99
We donít need more empire days
We donít need more endless war more Guantanamo Bays
We donít need more private prisons or kids shot down in the streets
We donít need more surveillance and militarized police
We donít need to keep fighting ourselves so we are blind to what we need
We donít need more empire days
No more empire days
No more empire days
