You've got your guards and they've got their guns
They're overworked and you've
Never ever won a thing in your life

I've got my dreams and I've got my sleep
And I've been promised a pill
That's gonna keep these visions of an empire at peace

'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me
'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me

Oh, my God
You are the one I've been holding out
For for so damn long, for for so damn long
And you're a far cry from an empire at peace

I've got my knives in the heart of my sleeves
But this weather's getting too nice for me
To keep an empire in peace

'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me
'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me

Oh, my God
You're the one I've been holding out
For for so damn long, for for so damn long
And you're a far cry from an empire

You've got your guards and they've got their guns
They're overworked and you've
Never ever won a thing in your life

'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me
'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me

Oh, my God
You're the one I've been holding out
For for so damn long, for for so damn long
Hey

Oh, my God
You're the one I've been holding out
For for so damn long, for for so damn long
