End of the Empire I-III Lyrics

I. Last Dance

One last dance
Here at the end of the empire
Makes me cry
Watching the moon on the ocean
Where California used to be
It’s not half bad, oh
Spend half your life being sad, woah
Well, don’t be scared, oh-oh
Just chronically impaired, oh-oh
Just take my hand, oh-oh
Standing at the end of the American Empire

One last song
Here at the end of the movie
They seemed so sure
At lеast that’s the way I remembеr the war
When New York used to be
It’s not half bad, oh-oh
Spending half your life being sad, woah
Don’t you weep, oh-oh
Half your life fast asleep, oh-oh
Feeling uninspired, oh
Standing at the end of the American Empire

II. Last Round

And we know that it’s time to go
Heard the news on the radio
One last round before we go
Through the pale atmospheric glow
And the oxygen’s getting low
Sing a song that we used to know
One last round before we go
One last round before we go

III. Leave The Light On

(So sad)

Didn’t use to get high
Didn’t use to drink and I
Didn’t use to think I
Could ever dream about losing you

Didn’t use to get low
This time of night and I
Didn’t use to walk home
In the morning light
Without you
Without you

Didn’t use to get high
Didn’t use to drink
Didn’t use to think I
Could ever dream about losing you, you
But I do

It’s you and I, it’s do or die
Suicide mission, baby by my side
We got one life and half of it’s gone
You know I can’t sleep with the television on

Didn’t use to get high
With you by my side
(Leave the light on)
