My little empire has risen and it sets
My little empire is as good as it can get
My little empire is coming around
My little empire, it don't make a sound (don't make a sound)

My royalty, it does not exist
It is extinct for the eye to see
My ideology, it is dead and gone
Almost forgotten for the eye to see

My little empire I'm sick of being sick
My little empire I'm tired of being tired
My little empire I'm bored of being bored
My little empire I'm happy being sad (happy being sad)

All of my sins are attempts to fill the voids
All of my voids, they are filled with sin
All of my demons, they are kept within
And all my violence, it does not exist

My little empire I'm happy being sad
My little empire I'm fucked with being fucked
My little empire I'm done with being dumb
My little empire I'm happy being sad

Happy being sad, happy being sad, happy being sad

    General CommentTo me, this song represents what depression and isolation in younger years can result in - feeling trapped in a sort of 'secret' world, unable to actually put your finger on why it was you created this world in the first place. I think it's about trapping yourself in your head and thinking you're somehow better or different to everyone else - then realising that you may not be, but still having this 'empire' that you automatically retreat into. 'My ideology it is dead and gone' - You can't remember what you were striving for when you were younger. 'Almost forgotten for the eye to see' - But you know that you never achieved it.
