Words:


The Roman Empire Fell

Either you're with us or you're against us,
That's what the Man said.
Either you're with us or you're the Enemy,
and there's a gun against your head.
Either you're with us or you're a Terrorist
There is no in between.
So fall in line and march for us,
become part of our machine,
or we'll bomb you to smithereens.

[Chorus:]

We have claimed all the space
From the West to the East
From the hinterlands of Empire,
to the belly of the beast.
We're turning all the world into
a global police state,
but the Roman Empire fell and so will we.


The network news will fall in line,
and turn our lies into truth.
And every worker will be our spy,
from the UPS driver to the toll booth.
And the people who dare to question us,
and the people who resist,
We will fabricate charges and prosecute
these traitors in our midst.

[Chorus]

Well we've had our Reichstag fire,
but it seems to be wearing thin.
It's been a year and it's been fun,
but we need some action again.
"Well here's a way to kill two birds,"
said Cheney to his crew.
"A little war is always good,
and we could use that Iraqi crude."

[Chorus]
