Empires

Album: The Autumn Effect (2005)
  • Sky cities scrape
    The lining of heaven
    Beneath this vast region
    Manifest destination
    Leaves us fast erasing

    Days pass
    Time flies
    You don't realize
    Today you waste

    This dying youth
    Of beauty and pleasure
    Evaporates
    Lives are connected
    To lasting obsessions
    That become possessions of waste
    While buying the next
    New fashion that's fed
    To enslave this land of the free

    Days pass
    Time flies
    You don't realize
    Today you waste

    Days pass
    Time flies
    You don't realize
    Today you waste

    Don't be so surprised [Repeats]

    Days pass
    Time flies
    You don't realize
    Today you waste Writer/s: BRIAN VODINH, JESSE HASEK
