Andrew Bird – Scythian Empires lyrics

Five day forecast bring black tall rains and hellfire
While handpicked tenderness kid gloves tear at the inseam
Their Halliburton Attaché cases are useless
While Scotch Guard Macintoshes shall be carbonized

And now they’re offering views of exiting empire
Such breathtaking views of Scythian empires
Scythian Empire, horsemen of the Russia steppe
Scythian Empire, archers of an afterthought

The routed by some Achaean's and thwarted by the Thracian's
The Scythian Empire

Scythian Empire, exiting empire
Scythian Empire, exiting empire

Routed by some Achaean's and thwarted by the Thracian's
A Scythian Empire
Kings of Macedonia, a Scythian Empire
