"Secret Crowds" as written by and Thomas Delonge....
If I had my own world
I'd fill it with love and desire
I wanted the glorious past you admire
And voices of kids out walking dogs,
Birds, planes, trees and cars

If I had my own world
I'd love it for all that's inside it
There'd be no more wars, death or riots,
There'd be no more faiths, packed parking lots,
Guns, bombs sounding off,

If I had my own world
I'd build you an empire
From here to the farlands
To spread love like violence

If I had my own world
I'd build you an empire
From here to the farmlands
To spread love like violence

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

If I had my own world
I'd show you the life that's inside it
The way that it glows when you find it
The way it survives with it's families,
Friends or it's enemies

Let's make this a new world

I swear you can go if you want to
I know that you have it within you
Inventing the first clean musical,
God's greatest miracle

If I had my own world
I'd build you an empire
From here to the farmlands
To spread love like violence

If I had my own world
I'd build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

Let me feel you carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

Let me feel you carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

Let me feel you carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

    General CommentI think this song is about a world that can be bad, but we can build our own world, and you can take the people you love into the new world you've created that's better than what the normal world is, and carrying that person higher and higher so that they will never, ever fall.

    General CommentThis song is awesome! The new album is gonna be sweet, it seems Tom realized how to make good music again, it's nowhere near as good as blink, but it's still pretty good.

    General CommentThe song is about being a better person to people you love or just the world in general. Tom wants the younger generation to start a revolution and change how we live, with I - Empire its the second step in creating something amazing, who knows, there could also be a third part aswell.

    General CommentIt's a shame the world over cant feel, and want, what Tom wants in this song. Its and anthem for love among all people and it paints such a beautiful picture of what the world could be like if it was a perfect place.

    I cant wait to go to their show and be one of the hundreds of people to "sing back louder"

    General CommentFavorite one on the album, although it took a few listens in order to appreciate it. Clearly the title track on the album, being how often the word "empire" is used, and it should be too - it's the best one.

    I especially like the anthem-style chorus sing near the end.
