"Empire" as written by Mark Hunter, Robert Arnold, Jim Lamarca, Chris Spicuzza, Matt Devries and Andy Herrick....
Do you believe in me
Enough to sacrifice
Do you believe in me
Enough to end your life

Do you believe in me
Enough to kill for me
Do you believe in me
Enough to die for me
Come on and join me
Grab my hand
Together we will feast
On the blood of the weak

Empire
Destroying dignity
Empire
Destroying humanity
When you walk the path
You will discover a world undreamed of
Your suffering will be legendary
Do you believe in suffering

Do you believe in me
Enough to slay your brother
Do you believe in me
Enough to betray your family
Come on and join me
Grab my hand
Together we will feast
On the blood of the weak

Empire
Destroying dignity
Empire
Destroying humanity

When you walk the path
Your feelings won't betray you
When you walk the path
Your agony will elate you

Empire
Destroying dignity
Empire
Destroying humanity

    General CommentSeems to me like this song is about religion and god, or something similar. He's asking if you believe in him "god" enough to kill for him, die for him, and do ridiculous things for him.

    General Commentits about a country, "die for me" such as go to war, or it can also be about a controlling person such as a girl who expects u to go to great lengths to please her..

    General Commenti suppose that this is about politics (empire = government). it's quite reachable if thinking so, :)

    as for me this is about how governments controlls everything, even the people's beheviour and their life goals etc...

    and ... the suffering is that what you get for your freedom [when you walk the path] (opposition of emipre), and it must bring you happiness [Your agony will elate you]

    i'm done now

    General CommentI have to agree with -=ViRUS=-...a government controlling what we all do, say, think...etc, "Empire, destroying dignity" but then joecorrao could be right as well with the song being about going to war. Think of it like this.

    You have a government who controls what thier people of the country do and whatnot, and then most of those people go to war and die for thier country, but not for what the believe in...sit and think about it for a minute you will see what im talking about

    General CommentThis song is either aimed directly at the US government (empire, destroying humanity, destroying our dignity) or at the al-quaida culture. I'm thinking it's aimed at the US more. Lines like feast on the blood of the weak could refer to what we are doing in Iraq. However, the sacrafice lines sound like more of a terrorist idea.
