Under The Rule

from by The Wishing Well

lyrics

Stumbled out on an empty street
Where the weak and the wicked weep
Underneath a billowing cloud
In heavy rain, you where lost in the crowd

How I've played this waiting game
Nothing lost and nothing gained
In a world of ashes and dust
Fools gold, thin lines of rust

Under the rule of an empire’s song
You close your eyes and sing along
Look into the fire and see yourself
Would you give your life for someone else?

From the valley to the mountain top
Even the Gods won't carry you across
Upon your throne in the palaces of rage
I bid you well and slowly turn the page

Under the rule of an empire’s song
You close your eyes and sing along
Look into the fire and see yourself
Would you give your life for someone else?
