Blues Traveler

Fallen Empire

 

 

Here's to the fallen empire, and all the treasure there

Here's to the fallen empire, and I just don't care

 

A toast to the mighty buildings

That cluttered up the sky

And I'll drink to all those fine, brave lads

Who gave it their best try

The armies came on charging

But the battle lasted a day

By dawn the conquest halted there

And a handful rode away

 

So here's to the fallen empire, and all the treasure there

Here's to the fallen empire, and I just don't care

 

With the general dead and buried

The corporal of resource

Rallied up the small remains

Of once-undefeated force

Their final charge came quickly

Their horses seemed to fly

Each man knew an age had ended

Each man knew he'd die

 

So here's to the fallen empire, and all the treasure there

Hip hip hooray for the fallen empire, and I just don't care

 

The defenders made quick work of them

And the war was finally won

An era's culture grew no more

And a new era begun

The defenders, now the conquerors

Grow docile with desire

Their expansion surely justified now

All hail the new empire

 

So here's to the fallen empire, and all the treasure there

Here's to the fallen empire, and I just can't seem to care

 

You know, that was many empires ago

Many since have rose and fell

Many more shall rise under God and heaven

And ride off into hell

Their children have our faces

Their children we're among

And as I too dream, my turn draws near

Because I am that young

 

So here's to the fallen empire, and all the treasure there

Here's to the fallen empire, and I really don't care

 

I can hear it call to me

Like a wolf howls to the moon

You know, now there is no life up there

We'll colonize it soon

So here's to our falling empire

And all that's fine and fair

Come ride with me for an emperor's crown

I'm young and I just don't care

 

So here's to the fallen empire, and all the trouble there

Here's to the fallen empire, I'm a young man and I just don't care
