Take these shoes
I don't think I need them
Take this shirt
It's stained cause I'm bleeding
They don't mean that much
To me anymore

Free this mind
It's trapped always believing
Who's the blame
When we know they way it's been going
Help me wash
Away these stains

We thought we had it all
What we build
We watch it crumble away

The decline of the empire
Is coming on
When the mighty fumble
And you can't run
When you feel like everything you know
Has been taken away
Well take it slow

The decline of the empire
It's coming on
When the mighty crumble
You should run
And steal back everything you've lost
And then take it slow

We'll take it slow
