So maybe empires will fold
Maybe empires will come and go
I am appealing to you
To keep it all under control

Circular time. And distance.
A nation falls to economy
It's all money.
When this city fell down
He was driving around to see.

First to fall was the roads
Animals quickly then arose
I took my flask and camcorder
To document the rise of the Rose

They've taken everything else
How long before they take the blankness?
The blankness...

They still sew labels inside
They're only cheap clothes, I know,
But I haven't got a nickel
Maybe holes in my shoes are wide.
They're only cheap clothes I know
But I haven't got a nickel (repeats)
to my name.

But I haven't got a nickel to my name.

We see how the legions follow
We take all that we can borrow
We stop thinking of tomorrow
If it ever came

How many weeks of fighting?
How many months since typing? ...to see.
