Testo della canzone Building Empires (Avenue X), tratta dall'album Building Empires

Building Empires - Avenue X

Welcome to this great city
Formerly a shell
It's been ten years since
The bombs fell
I lost my family here
As so many did before
And on their ashes
We made this town

But no one here will ever
Die
They're all being locked
Inside
Made into machines
Strapped to the floor
With no addiction
Anymore

Tear the old order down from above
We'll build the perfect society
Each of us will be connected here
Through the cables and the drugs
We're building empires out of us

The revolution has begun
The war to end all death
Accidents cannot
Happen anymore
Better to be connected
And interact in the wire
The order goes out
To all society

And we come here with
A knock
And our guns give them a
Shock
Lead them all away in
Chains
It's for your own good
We change

Tear the old order down from above
We'll build the perfect society
Each of us will be connected here
Through the cables and the drugs
We're building empires out of us

Years of suffering
Chaos and decay
Pain and loneliness
All wiped away
In a chemical
Everything intertwined
A superhuman race
Scientific bind
And I am the chosen one
Feet on the ground
Building our empire
Solider without sound
Savoir of the people
I serve the good of all
Force you to sacrifice
A soul for the cause
At the blade of the knife
Either way you die
But most come willingly
To leave themselves behind
And join the link
Thinking all as one
No more death
It's time is done

Something about her shook me
That night I found her
Made me pause and she ran
The only one to get away
I won't forget her face
Burned with fear and horror
It never leaves me anymore
If I'm honest, I'm scared
To put the needle in me
Even though I know
One day it will be asked of me
Will I lose myself
And drown in a haze of data
I fight for us but I fear for me

I have a job to do
Building back a city
A moving cog
In the wheel of life
I do what I must
In memory of my family
Our unity
Stands on their remains

And behind you
There's a lock
And no reason
Ever to talk
Your thoughts become
Our own
With this unity
We are known

Tear the old order down from above
We'll build the perfect society
Each of us will be connected here
Through the cables and the drugs
We're building empires out of us
