Official Lyrics

Funny Man: Empire
Empire
Empire
Empire

J-Dog: Feeling like today is the day, you better make a move
Up and out of the fray, you better execute
Through the city decay, the people watching you
Get the fuck out the way 'cause they can get it too
Lord as your witness, you just don't need no forgiveness
Don't know who's next on your hit list, you just handle your business
Suicidal I’d say, a bloody tidal wave
Don't give a fuck if they hate you, you're the god that they pray to

Danny: Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns
My empire, my empire
Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns
My empire, my empire

Johnny 3 Tears: I'm all alone with my solitary violence
God, I wanna sleep, but I can't close my eyelids
Back to the streets 'cause we know all the right kids
Built this fucking city on the backs of the white bricks
So fucking cold
Another death sentence and another sold soul
It's all I know
I'm gonna die fast, bitch, you can die slow
I'm a dead man, a fucking dead man walking
I blew my head off but he kept on talking
Saw myself die and I kept on watching
Went straight to heaven but I kept on knocking

Danny: Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns
My empire, my empire
Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns
My empire, my empire
J-Dog: Lord as your witness, you just don't need no forgiveness
Don't know who's next on your hit list, you just handle your business
Danny: My empire, my empire
J-Dog: Yeah, suicidal I’d say, a bloody tidal wave
Don't give a fuck if they hate you, you're the god that they pray to
Danny: My empire, my empire

Charlie Scene: I'm a storm without a warning, the black clouds that are forming
I turn the river red, I am deliverance
I'm a storm without a warning, the black clouds that are forming
I turn the river red, I am deliverance

Danny: Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns
My empire, my empire
Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns
My empire, my empire
J-Dog: Lord as your witness, you just don't need no forgiveness
Don't know who's next on your hit list, you just handle your business
Danny: My empire, my empire
J-Dog: Yeah, suicidal I'd say, a bloody tidal wave 
Don't give a fuck if they hate you, you're the god that they pray to
Danny: My empire, my empire
