Here I am with my empire
I'll bring you to your knees
Ebb and flow with my desire
'Cause it's all that you've been taught to be

Yeah, I'm the bastard son
Of what's been overcome
And again we plant the seed

So place your fork to mouth
Eat, consume, be proud
Of what I let you see
'Cause we've made quite sure
You can never leave

Here I am with my empire
I'll bring you to your knees
Ebb and flow with my desire
'Cause it's all that you've been taught to be

I speak you throw parades
Ignore the sense of rage welling up inside
Pay no mind to what we do
'Cause we'll sell it all to you in modern luxuries
And we've made quite sure you believe you're free

Here I am with my empire
I'll bring you to your knees
Ebb and flow with my desire
'Cause it's all that you've been taught to be

From the cradle to the grave
We try not to be saved from what we own
For next to nothing spent turn your dollars into cents
Fighting for the right to die alone

Just believe, believe you're free
('Cause you're on your own)
It doesn't matter, just be sure
That this is our empire, this is war
(You're on your own)

Forgotten heroes, chessboard roles
([Incomprehensible])
To make you think you're something more
([Incomprehensible])
But you're on your own

Here I am with my empire
I'll bring you to your knees
Ebb and flow with my desire
'Cause it's all that you've been taught to be
