Guster – Empire State lyrics
I've been the call on a mountain
Been the link in the chain
I've been scolded for stealing
I've been told to behave
I've been reading the forecast
Something's coming this way
But it's taking forever I'm to tired to maintain that I'm slow

Been a scratch on the surface
Been a clog in the drain
Been melodramatic
Been sleeping for days
I've been 1 in a million
Been a million to 1
This is taking forever
Always seems to return that I'm slow

All hands up, salute the empire state
Faith be true, you know the way
Ten feet tall in this, an empty space
Fall the walls all around, destroied again
Destroied again

Been digging to china
Been a fish in the sea
Been talking to Jesus
He's not talking to me
Been reading the forecast
Somethings coming this way
But it's taking forever
I'm to tired to maintain that I'm slow

All hands up, salute the empire state
Faith is true, she knows the way
Ten miles tall in this an empty space
Fall the walls all around, we'll build again
Rebuild again

I've been the call on a mountain
Been the link in the chain
I've been scolded for stealing
I've been carried away
