False Empire (music video)

FALSE EMPIRE
Written by: Michelle Creber

Mindless, weak and small
Mercenary fraud
Broke all moral laws
To earn reward for bad behavior

Well honey you better learn your lies, lie lie lies
Been ruling a false empire, lie lie liar
Lie lie liar, lie lie la dee dah…

Fueled by fear and crime
Checkers in chess by hopping the mess
And working the ladder by stepping on any head
Power is divine
Spoil the rich, ignoring the poor
I pity the soul who’d remain in defense of you
Stole yourself a mound of riches, buy yourself a heart

Well honey you better learn your lies, lie lie lies
You’ve been ruling a false empire, lie lie liar
And when you gotta testify
There’ll be no alibis
To get you through this fire
Lie lie liar, lie lie liar
Lie lie la dee dah…

You’re gonna hear a knock knock knock on your golden doors
And then a stomp, stomp on your marble floors
We’re gonna find the rebels, find find the rebels
Then we’ll fight together, fight fight together

‘Cause you know revolution is a given here
You thought that we’re gonna take this
We’re gonna make this easy for you to walk all over us
No we’re the rebels, we’re we’re the rebels
And we’ll fight together, fight fight together
When you are on your own

Well honey you better learn your lies, lie lies
You’ve been ruling a false empire, lie lie liar
And when you gotta testify
There’ll be no alibis
And we’ll set your words on fire
Lie lie liar
