The Other Side of the World-I AM EMPIRE

Looking up, eyes half open, A purple orange atmosphere catches my attention Not enough to free my mind of her smile But maybe I need it (I need it) It’s every kiss we shared That took away our thoughts Breathe in breathe out You’re not alone I am always near Breathe in breathe out I’m just around the bend The other side of the world Her eyes so beautiful The sky couldn’t stand a chance Through distance we will find our way I want her more and more each day She was the better half of me It’s the every … Continue reading The Other Side of the World-I AM EMPIRE

Heart Attack-I AM EMPIRE

Ten years strong Found myself fooled by a fool Gave you my heart… You ripped it apart or something worse Wanna make you pay for hurting her You stupid boy Yeah you’re just an empty glass with no remorse for anyone Its just the way it goes sometimes… Say your prayers Never gonna take you back Its a breath of air To let you feel my heart attack Say your prayers Never gonna take you back Its a breath of air To let you feel my heart attack No one deserves abandonment Seems my soul’s ripe for the picking Met … Continue reading Heart Attack-I AM EMPIRE

Dig You Out-I AM EMPIRE

You sent me a curse Left for dead by the waters edge You’re the thorn in my side I try to dig you out Full of disgrace Hate to admit it but lying was worth it To dig you out of my head To dig you out of my head Are we dust in the wind? Look at all the things we lack Running circles in the black Are we dust in the wind? Searching for security Far from where I want to be I tried to forget Pictures burned in my memory Keep closing my eyes To wash the … Continue reading Dig You Out-I AM EMPIRE

Take Me Away-I AM EMPIRE

Trophies on my bedroom mantle never meant much to me. It was all to make you happy or something of the sort. Think I’ll build a boat sail somewhere I can be myself. But who is that? Who is that? Son it’s not your fault. You are who you are. I will lead you to where they wont make you small Take me away where the monsters will play. Take me away where they’ll never see my face. Take me away where the monsters will play. Take me away where they’ll never see my face. Oh… The ocean lead me … Continue reading Take Me Away-I AM EMPIRE

It’s Not Fair-I AM EMPIRE

Gone like a ghost Unlike most I was made from your bones. It’s what you stole when you left my mamma all alone. Every hero you were was shot to the ground. As if superman had lost his mighty mighty strength. It’s not fair to go and leave me behind and leave me behind It’s not fair to go and leave me behind and leave me behind No I didn’t know what to think when the call came that night. The motorcycles speed was no match against the semi truck. I sat by your side and prayed hope for life. … Continue reading It’s Not Fair-I AM EMPIRE
