Fall Of The Empire

vistas 101

Can you remember how it used to be?
We were so proud and so free
Strong and mighty powerful and true
Can you remember?

Now all around us pestilence and greed
Famine, hate and war
It surrounds us like a black disease
Just take a look around us

In spite of every upright intention
We live and die by the sword
It's second nature, and so the question is
Can we learn or will we burn?

The fall of the empire, what have we done?
The fall of the empire, it's the dawn of the setting sun
The fall of the empire, can this race be won?
It's the fall of the empire... or has the end begun?

Will the mountains crumble to the ground?
Will the earth stand still?
Will we rise a mushroom cloud?
Will the mountains crumble?

Can we heed a lesson from the past
And put aside our hate
Or will we blow ourselves to kingdom come?
tell me, is it too late?

Inside of every abomination
There is hope that lies within
It's second nature, and the question is
Can we learn or will we burn?

The fall of the empire, what have we done?
The fall of the empire, it's the dawn of the setting sun
The fall of the empire, can this race be won?
It's the fall of the empire or has the end begun?
