Well, there is trouble in my mind There is dark There's dark, and there is light. I lay our hands over my eyes As I look deep Through valleys deep and wide Across the border line For the empire in my mind
You are the reason I don't sleep You are the light That's breaking through the leaves You know how hard I try To believe I have something good inside Over barricades I climb For the empire in my mind.
I have no love somewhere in time I've been lifted up I've looked honor in the eyes I have no reason I have no rhyme I cannot deny There's a darkness that's inside I am guilty by design And now I realize The temptation's made me blind To the empire in my mind
There is no order There is chaos And there is crime There is no one home tonight In the empire in my mind
There is no distance that I don't see I do have a will No limit to my reach I wish I would I wish I might See a line tonight Separating wrong from right Some are only born to try And maybe that's the reason why I am afraid someday I'll find There is no empire in my mind
There is trouble in my life There is trouble in my life
