​Songs Of Empire

This song is by Push Kings and appears on the album Push Kings (1996).

They're not that different than the other guys
The same movie stars they idolize
Are the ones that we take home at night

And they don't envy us anything
Not blonde looks, cars, or varsity teams
Upper row seats, Jim Beam

He had a friend, a genius, he was used
To getting passed by (by by by by)
They sat and listened to "Joe the Lion"
And the animal grew inside

The L.I.R.R. can't hold them down
I should know, I've seen them around
Skinny ties, bull's eyes, and strange new sounds

They just want all that their parents did
Gang of friends and gifts to give
Come on, come on, we all wanna go, kid

He had a friend, a genius, he was used
To getting passed by (by by by by)
They sat and listened to song of empire
And the tears fell from their eyes (eyes)
