The Waking Eyes – All Empires Fall lyrics

I know a man, he's a bit of a brat

Writes to his friends, says he know where it's at, yeah
I know a man, thinks he's running the world,
Let's take him down, hold him down, we don't want him around no more

All on his own but he don't give a damn,
Three years later still playing the land,
Yeah he's not the problem,
It's the cause that's the problem,
Just not enough to go around no it's never enough of it

All empires fall
All empires fall

Ya, I think it's time that we learned Chinese,
Something's coming from the east can't you feel the breeze,
People talking about the end of history,
Don't they see it's just a cycle, just a cycle spinning around us again
Rome was strong 'till the bitter end,
Plagued by tax since she couldn't defend you,
She was stretched to the fiddle like the skin on a drum
Getting pounding and I'm pounding and I'm pounding for the way to the wait is

All empires fall
All empires fall

All empires fall

Why don't we take time to relax,
Retreat to the facts
It's anything and everything from dusk to dust
So let's rise in 10 years, a collection of fears,
Is this as good as it gets? Ready on a stone at the 2 million years

All empires fall
All empires fall
All empires, they all fall
