lyrics

MORE EMPIRE DAYS
I can see it from my living room
A cold glass and steel tower of doom
You can see it from everywhere that means it can see you too
They work 24/7 they never stop
They’re building it higher and higher with no end and no top
At night it’s lit up beautifully like a Christmas tree
But there’s no giving here it’s only purpose is to take from you and me
A monument of gold for our Empire we used to call a Democracy
It’s going to get stranger It’s going get stranger
They’re going to want more empire days
They’re going to want more endless war and Guantanamo Bays
They’re going to want more prisons more guns in the streets
They’re going to want more surveillance and militarized police
They’re going to want us to keep us fighting amongst ourselves so we are blind to what they need
To keep building it higher impossible to climb impossible to climb for the 99
They say it’s never enough never profitable enough
They keep it going with payoffs, dirty tricks and blackmail
Then say “there’s nothing we can do to stop now it’s too big to fail”
The lust for gold has led us so far from the trail
The biggest monster now the world has ever seen
Always hungers for more power and mindless greed
It needs more bullets more blood more hate and less love
But there’s nowhere they can hide nowhere they can hide… from the 99
We don’t need more empire days
We don’t need more endless war more Guantanamo Bays
We don’t need more private prisons or kids shot down in the streets
We don’t need more surveillance and militarized police
We don’t need to keep fighting ourselves so we are blind to what we need
We don’t need more empire days
No more empire days
No more empire days

about

THE WELCOME MATT San Francisco, California

Tirelessly touring and recording, the Bay Area-via-New England songwriter recently signed a publishing deal with Wixen Publishing, joining an impressive artist which includes Tom Petty and Weezer. Co-wrote a top-40 European hit “San Francisco,” by Cascada, a song with which the German Dance pop group also took to #15 on the German charts.
Watch for the 2014 release POPJUNK FLUFF and HYPE.
