Weyes Blood – Children of the Empire Lyrics

Lyrics Children of the Empire – Weyes Blood

Looking like some clear skies have finally opened up my eyes
Livin’ in a lost time
The dawning of a brand new man
So much blood on our hands
King and queen of being lonely
Children of the empire see that we’re all lost

There comes a cost walking in the labyrinth without love
How much can you take
And when are you gonna be okay
Gain control of what we made
Instead of being afraid
Children of the empire say

We’re long gone
In that eternal flame
Trying to break away
From the mess we made
Oh, we don’t have time anymore to be afraid

We tend to live long, that’s why so many things go wrong
People selling their young blood
I guess that’s the price you pay
Fake desire but no one lives
Won’t the fire burn our sin
Before we get a chance to love again
Children understand that they pay for their sins
Seize control of what they made
Before we all fade away
Children of the empire wanna change

‘Cause we’re long gone
In that eternal flame
Trying to break away
From the mess we made
Oh, we don’t have time anymore to be afraid, anymore

Children of the empire know
Know that they’re not free for long
They wanna be free
They know we’re not free, oh no
We wanna be free…
