Well, there is trouble in my mindThere is darkThere’s dark, and there is light.I lay our hands over my eyesAs I look deepThrough valleys deep and wideAcross the border lineFor the empire in my mindYou are the reason I don’t sleepYou are the lightThat’s breaking through the leavesYou know how hard I tryTo believeI have something good insideOver barricades I climbFor the empire in my mind.I have no love somewhere in timeI’ve been lifted upI’ve looked honor in the eyesI have no reason; I have no rhymeI cannot denyThere’s a darkness that’s insideI am guilty by designAnd now I realizeThe temptation’s made me blindTo the empire in my mindThere is no orderThere is chaosAnd there is crimeThere is no one home tonightIn the empire in my mindThere is no distance that I don’t seeI do have a willNo limit to my reachI wish I would; I wish I mightSee a line tonightSeparating wrong from rightSome are only born to tryAnd maybe that’s the reason whyI am afraid someday I’ll findThere is no empire in my mindThere is trouble in my lifeThere is trouble in my life
