don't try to pretend
that we're not a part of it
don't you try to tell me
that we've got nothing to lose

in the evil empire
everything is fine
empires rise and empires fall
but this one's going nowhere at all

and the evil empire will prevail
try to fight it, you will fail
but empires rise and empires fall
surely one day this one will fail

call the police, call the army
go thru proper channels
thru the authorities
their dynasties and statues

we'll stay in line and like it
spying on each other
how to disentangle?
how to simplify?

and the evil empire will prevail...

and I'd love someone to prove me wrong

and the evil empire will prevail...

going nowhere at all
going nowhere at all
going nowhere at all
