​Fall Of An Empire

This song is by The Saints and appears on the album Everybody Knows The Monkey (1998).

It's the fall of an empire
It's in the air
It's the mood of the moment
And I don't care
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Consider yourself in the scheme of things
When you open your eyes
Take a look around

The fields are burning
There's water in my eyes
And the sky turns black
There's no returning
Once you've gone
There's no coming back
As night turns to day
What would you say
To make me change my mind
I don't believe the lie

I rose early
The trumpet sounded
And all the walls had come down
I'm celebrating
With champagne breath and clown
As ruined as the rest of the town
I'm falling down

The wheels are turning
I'm moving on and that's a fact
There is no returning
Once you've gone there's no coming back
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Consider yourself in the scheme of things
And when you open your eyes
Take a look around

It's the fall of an empire
