lyrics

You built your empire… built your empire on a base of corporate greed
You built your empire… built your empire ignoring every other’s need
You built your empire… built your empire into only one mouth to feed
But now your empire… now your empire has met its match in me

What makes you think you’re different
From all the rest
What makes you think you’re better
Better than better than anyone else
That you’re above all of us
Why should we fuss.
You’ve got your shit together
Who cares about us

You built your empire… built your empire on a base of corporate greed
You built your empire… built your empire ignoring every other’s need
You built your empire… built your empire into only one mouth to feed
But now your empire… now your empire has met its match in me

You’re only one in billions but you’re focused on yourself
You’ve got so much potential to turn this world around
You’ve only got to open up your eyes to see the truth
That you’re part of the disease and the cure ain’t far away.

While millions huddle from the fire only canvas in between
You stand aloft indifferent in your shining tower of glass
I’ve had enough of you and your raging endless greed
I’m gonna smash that tower down, bring you to the ground

It’s time we send a message
From all the rest
The time is coming closer
Let's hope you’re ready for your final test
You’re not above all of us
Earn back our trust
It’s time to pay your debt now
If you’ve got the guts

You built your empire… built your empire on a base of corporate greed
You built your empire… built your empire ignoring every other’s need
You built your empire… built your empire into only one mouth to feed
But now your empire… now your empire has met its match in me
