We take a turn for the long way
Mind on the move and my world shape shifting
The weather circling my coffee
And I deluge in the rain

Heart in tune deep in my Chest
The styrofoam peeling off my life vest
Aspiring to be a good man
And keep afloat like a king

Are we not rockstars?
Part-time demigods
I can be your Emperor

Take the leader
Make believer
Fake the truth, take me down deceiver
Wake me up I
Fade the montage
Lose the scene under camouflage now

And up ahead there's a signal
A blurry red bouncing off my windshield
I keep on fighting like a good man
So run with me in the green

Are we not rockstars?
Part-time demigods
I can be your Emperor

Slow town, fast cars
Abandoned boulevards
Operating Emperors on the move

Don't you know who we are?
Dark lion whisperers
Tell me I'm your Emperor
