• I-EMPIRE

    01 – CALL TO ARMS

    There’s a little black, dark scar, tired divide.
    This is it, can you hear me?
    Have you ever felt a sad heart buried alive?
    You can do almost anything.
    There’s a little red bridge with a view of the sun
    With a lake, I recommend such a setting site
    And the thousands of stars, come out thousands of times
    And we can go, only if you believe.
    Only if you believe.

    Do you feel like you’ve lost everything you can lose?
    This is it can you hear me?
    When you cry do your tears ever chill up the room?
    Calling out in a moment of need.
    Do you ever lay awake with a look in the eye?
    Asking god if a wish is too big to deny?
    I will offer a line, and it is ready for use,
    Let me know are you ready for me?

    I’d like to say, that you’re my only fear.
    And when I dream, it slowly disappears.
    And when I wake, I’m right here by your side…
    To feel your heart, beat in and out of time.

    When the storm brings rain, snow fate of all kinds,
    You can feel most anything.
    When the day seems to melt, fall flat into night,
    You can feel most anything.
    When you can’t go on, you got to get up and try.
    This is it, can you feel me?
    And when the bombs come down, we will make it alive,
    But only if you want to believe

    I’d like to say, that you’re my only fear.
    And when I dream, it slowly disappears.
    And when I wake, I’m right here by your side…
    To feel your heart, beat in and out of time.

    I’d like to say, that you’re my only fear.
    And when I dream, it slowly disappears.
    And when I wake, I’m right here by your side…
    To feel your heart, beat in and out of time.
    Out of time, I’m out of time.
    When I dream, I’m out of time.
    I feel your heart, I’m out of time.

    I’d like to say, that you’re my only fear.
    And when I dream, it slowly disappears.
    And when I wake, I’m right here by your side…
    To feel your heart, beat in and out of time.

     

    02 – EVERYTHING’S MAGIC

    And do you ever feel like you’re alone?
    And do you ever wish to be unknown?
    I can say that I have,
    I can say that I have.
    And do you ever feel things here aren’t right?
    And do you ever feel the time slip by?
    And I can say that I have,
    And I can say that I have.

    So hear this please,
    and watch as your heart speeds up endlessly,
    And look for the stars as the sun goes down.
    Each breath that you take has a thunderous sound.
    Everything, everything’s magic.
    Just sit back and hold on but hold on tight,
    Prepare for the best and the fastest ride,
    And reach out your hand and I’ll make you mine.
    Everything, everything’s magic.

    And do you ever lay awake at night?
    And do you ever tell yourself don’t try?
    Don’t try to let yourself down,
    Don’t try to let yourself down.
    And do you ever see yourself in love?
    And do you ever take a chance my love?
    Because you know that I will,
    Because you know that I will.

    So hear this please,
    and watch as your heart speeds up endlessly,
    And look for the stars as the sun goes down.
    Each breath that you take has a thunderous sound.
    Everything, everything’s magic.
    Just sit back and hold on but hold on tight,
    Prepare for the best and the fastest ride,
    And reach out your hand and ill make you mine.
    Everything, everything’s magic.
    Everything, everything’s magic.

    03 – BREATHE

    A blue-black shade of love, sent from above.
    My hands are tied, two worlds alone, and this I know.
    Your breaths like wine, and just like clouds, my skin crawls.
    It’s so divine, the sky it glows with fields of light.

    Did you know, that I love you?
    Come and lay with me.
    I love you, and honesty.
    I love you, you make me feel alive.
    And I’ll love you, until the end of time.

    My hands shake clasped with fear, as you come near.
    To say goodnight, just like a dove, a peaceful sign.
    To help us by, as you come in, let this begin.
    Stars fall like dust, our lips will touch, we speak too much.

    Did you know, that I love you?
    Come and lay with me.
    I love you, and honesty.
    I love you, you make me feel alive.
    And I’ll love you, until the end of time.

    Did you know, that I love you?
    Come and lay with me.
    I love you, and honesty.
    I love you, you make me feel alive.
    And I’ll love you, until the end of time.

    I’ve got a lot to say, if you will let me.
    It’s always hard, when you’re around me.
    But here right now, there’s interest in your eyes.
    So hear me out, and hear this the first time.

    That I love you, come and lay with me
    That I love you, and honesty.
    That I love you, you make me feel alive.
    That I love you, till the end of time.

     

    04 – LOVE LIKE ROCKETS

    I held my head as I left the ground
    The belts grew tight as the blasts grew loud
    A loving wish whispered in my ear
    Please leave with grace all the best my dear

    Yeah, it’s like…

    I held your hand as I pulled you in
    Your lips sealed tight ready to begin
    I kissed you first then you kissed my ear
    If I ask you once will you ask my every year?

    Do you feel alive?
    Imagine, imagine
    Do you feel alive?
    Imagine, imagine

    The sun is set in the nighttime sky
    The stars they cast a glow upon my eyes
    The earth itself, a burning ball of light
    Yeah, it’s like…
    When our first love was ignited late that night

    Do you feel alive?
    Imagine, imagine
    Do you feel alive?
    Imagine, imagine

     

    05 – SIRENS

    There’s a weakness, in the window.
    I place my footprints, in the dark room.
    There’s lonely voices, like a scarecrow.
    In the hallway, like a lost ghost.

    In the bedroom, I see a shadow,
    From the moon with light from a candle.
    On a bed frame, lies a girl,
    Her reflection, in the mirror.

    I like your eyes wide,
    I’m knocking at your back door.
    Nervous like a knife fight,
    Be careful what you ask for.

    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never wake from a bad dream.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never say the things I mean.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to watch you as you sleep.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to think of you with me.

    It’s a dark night, on the west coast.
    Then a soft breeze, as the sun rose.
    Then the phone rang, like a gunshot.
    Like a siren, on the beach rock.

    There’s a message, at the river.
    A certain package, here to deliver.
    When the day breaks, after nightfall.
    I will be there, you know I will.

    I like your eyes wide,
    I’m knocking at your back door.
    Nervous like a knife fight,
    Be careful what you ask for.

    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never wake from a bad dream.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never say the things I mean.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to watch you as you sleep.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to think of you with me.

    I can hear, you breathe.
    I’m feeling the shake and the sound of,
    my heartbeat, can’t let go.
    Do you know, I‘m feeling the pain of my first love?
    I won’t let it go, can’t let go.

    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never wake from a bad dream.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never say the things I mean.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to watch you as you sleep.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I want to taste you as you breathe.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never wake from a bad dream.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I can never say the things I mean.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to watch you as you sleep.
    I do this from time to time,
    Where I like to think of you with me.

    From time to time.

     

    06 – SECRET CROWDS

    If I had my own world,
    I’d build you an empire.

    If I had my own world,
    I’d fill it with wealth and desire.
    A glorious past to admire,
    And voices of kids out walking dogs, birds, planes, cleanest cars.

    If I had my own world,
    I’d love it for all that’s inside it.
    There’d be no more wars, death or riots.
    There’d be no more police, packed-parking lots, guns, bombs sounding off.

    If I had my own world,

    From here to the far lands,
    To spread love like violence.

    Secret crowds rise up and gather.
    Hear your voices sing back louder.

    I’d show you the life that’s inside it.
    The way that it glows when you find it.
    And the way it survives with its families, friends or its enemies.

    Let’s make this a new world.
    I swear you can go if you want to.
    I know that you have that within you.
    Inventing the first clean and useable, gods greatest miracle.

    I’d build you an empire.
    From here to the far lands,
    To spread love like violence.

    08 – TRUE LOVE

    The snow has come down on top of everything
    The town is alive and well without you
    The lights they peer out, of the leafless trees
    And you won’t be alone, I am beside you

    yowayohwayohwayoh

    True love
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    The light is the sign that love will guide you home
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    If the world were to die the light will guide you

    Tears spilling out across a dead-end street
    Your house is a lonely box that holds you
    A star bright and loud is in dire need,
    Of that fear it is an empty fear inside you

    yowayohwayohwayoh

    True love
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    The light is the sign that love will guide you home
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    If the world were to die the light will guide you

    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    The light is the sign that love will guide you home
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    If the world were to die the light will guide you

    True love
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    The light is the sign that love will guide you home
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    If the world were to die the light will guide you

    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    The light is the sign that love will guide you home
    The stars in the sky illuminate below
    If the world were to die the light will guide you

     

    09 – LIFELINE

    With an urgent careful stare,
    And some panic in those eyes.
    If I see you lying there,
    Hoping this was the last time.

    If you hear a distant sound,
    And some footsteps by your side.
    When the world comes crashing down,
    I will find you if you hide.

    If you wish it wish it now,
    If you wish it wish it loud.
    If you want it say it now,
    If you want it say it loud.

    We all make mistakes, here’s your lifeline.
    If you want to I want to.
    We all make mistakes, here’s your lifeline.
    If you want to I want to.

    There’s a field with a dream,
    I watched it grow with whitest light.
    I watched us all reach out and lean,
    For the strength to touch the sky.

    If you hear a distant sound,
    and some footsteps by your side.
    If you feel like comin’ round,
    I will take you for a ride.

    If you wish it wish it now,
    If you wish it wish it loud.
    If you want it say it now,
    If you want it say it loud.

    We all make mistakes, here’s your lifeline.
    If you want to I want to.
    We all make mistakes, here’s your lifeline.
    If you want to I want to.

    If you want to I want to….

     

    11 – RITE OF SPRING

    I was locked all day, in the summer heat.
    In a small brown house, in suburban street.
    With a skateboard and my shit guitar
    I’d dream all day that they would get me far

    My dad would ask me about my grades
    The asshole sports that I never played
    And then I’d ask about the girls he’d date
    Behind our backs when mom would stay up late

    And it was near when I turned 16
    Got kicked out of school and so it seemed
    That things were closing in and ready to blow
    My dad moved out about that year or so

    It took an hour to start a punk rock band
    To offset my fucked up family land
    And as I held my mom would start to cry
    I swore ourselves a better life

    If I had a chance for another try, I wouldn’t change a thing,
    It’s made me all of who I am inside.
    And if I could thank god, that I am here and that I am alive.
    And everyday I wake, and tell myself a little harmless lie,
    The whole wide world is mine.

    The summers gone, the years have past
    My friends have changed, a few did last.
    The smallest dreams got pushed aside
    For the largest ones that changed my life

    And all I wish for has come to pass
    From rock n roll to love and cash
    It’s all success if its what you need
    Do what you like and do it honestly

    If I had a chance for another try, I wouldn’t change a thing,
    It’s made me all of who I am inside.
    And if I could thank god, that I am here and that I am alive.
    And everyday I wake, and tell myself a little harmless lie,
    The whole wide world is mine.

    If I had a chance for another try, I wouldn’t change a thing,
    It’s made me all of who I am inside.
    And if I could thank god, that I am here and that I am alive.
    And everyday I wake, and tell myself a little harmless lie,
    The whole wide world is mine.

    And the whole wide world is mine.

     

    12 – HEAVEN

    I will run the streets and hostile lands
    I will touch the rain, with all I have
    I will breathe the air, to scream it loud
    My feet will never touch the ground
    Because the days, they feel like ancient clocks
    Like when kids grow up and learn to walk
    Because your life is full of pure desire
    A place so gloriously wired with

    Lights, and sounds, oh god this is such a mess
    and it’s like, our world, but we’re the last ones left
    And the hair, it stands, on the back of our necks
    And I swear, it shows, heaven must be just like this

    Do you see the hills beneath the clouds,
    With stars as trails, to lead you out?
    Can you sense the pain, that’s everywhere?
    And if you try you’ll never care
    And the love you had when you were young
    Its right outside, for all to come
    Because your life is full of pure desire
    A place so gloriously wired with

    Lights, and sounds, oh god this is such a mess
    And it’s like, our world, but we’re the last ones left
    And the hair, it stands, on the back of our necks
    And I swear, it shows, heaven must be just like this

    If you see the light break through the clouds
    and fire up the distant towers
    where the world will begin exactly how it ends
    when you call for help when you are lost
    forever more at whatever cost
    and the world will begin exactly how it ends

    Please stay, don’t go.
    I got you now.
    Are you curious?

    Here I am
