  1. Empire

From the recording Empire

Lyrics

 
Dancers streaked out in their midnight rays
looking backwards on their brighter days
Fortune lovers speak of loss and fate
breaking down all the much-too-late
 
I am reeling with miles of rust
Slowly building an empire of dust
 
Lonely churches in the falling snow
the silent cars in their silent rows
Pushing backwards through the hail and wind
too busy thinking of the might-have-been
 
I am reeling with miles of rust
Slowly building an empire of dust
 
Bright as fire
a lone desire
winding higher
out to you
 
Floating headaches on the silly storm
the broken noises from a wasted horn
All the thinking that I thought I left
back with a lover too much like the rest
 
I am reeling with miles of rust
Slowly building an empire of dust
 
(From the album Seven Years Now)
