I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down, I hear empire down

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Love lost, fire at will
Dum-dum bullets and shoot to kill
I hear a dive, bombers, and
Empire down, empire down

I hear the sons of the city and dispossessed
Get it down, get undressed
Get pretty, but you and me
We got the kingdom, we got the key

We got the empire, now as then
We don't doubt, we don't take direction
Lucretia, my reflection
Dance the ghost with me

We look hard, we look through
We look hard to see for real
Such things I hear, they don't make sense
I don't see much evidence
I don't feel, I don't feel, I don't feel

A long train held up by page on page
A hard reign held up by rage
Once a railroad
Now it's done

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down

We got the empire, now as then
We don't doubt, we don't take reflection
Lucretia, my direction
Dance the ghost with me
