Theme #17

Our era is a heritage of flawed design
A system of belief authored by greedy minds.

It's bombs and guns and psycho nuns
I have dynamite fun to make 'em run
Head first, into the sun
They wear their suits while we loot

You can spend and consume, or
You and me and her and him
We can burn this empire--down
At the top or underground
We will burn this empire--down

Pyramids and tribes, white house lies
We've got a surprise, called demise
The iron fists, of global economy
With combat boots, our mouths shoot

We can spend and consume, or
You and we and every single one of us
We can burn this empire--down
One man or a crowd
We can burn this empire--down
Like the tree that falls
We make a sound (so loud)

We will burn this empire--DOWN!
