Dead Empire

from Misnomer EP by Midagmus

lyrics

Gimme, gimme, gimme all your tired and poor
but only if they pay taxes
American dream's now a nightmare for four
segregating the classes
Lines being drawn in the sand with our blood
inward we go for a high
Neediest kids, all they want is some love
parents avoid with a sigh

Caesar couldn’t beat her, welcome to the great deceiver
Long live the queen as she’s crushing all our dreams
Stalin and denying, devoured by the lion 
Our dead empire is barely even trying
Cash is king. our American dream
Bow your head

No rest for the wicked is the way of the world
The good died young long ago
The blood on our hands is just a stain on the curve
Media puts on a show
Vengeance not solutions, you can't handle the truth
Wiser men than us have tried
A fresh idea is a marker for death
Anything to cover the lie

Caesar couldn’t beat her,welcome to the great deceiver
Long live the queen as she’s crushing all our dreams
Stalin and denying. devoured by the lion 
Our dead empire is barely even trying
Cash is king, our American dream
Bow your head
