Lyrics

We strike first and we're unrehearsed
Here we go again to stage the greatest show on heaven and earth
Come on! Get your moneys worth
Don't wanna live! Don't wanna give! Don't wanna be! E - M - P - I - R - E
Don't wanna live! Don't wanna be! E - M - P - I - R - E
We're coming on fast and we're built to last
We stumbled once in 'Nam now we're glad to finally say those days have passed
Tell me how long can it last?
Don't wanna live! Don't wanna give! Don't wanna be! E - M - P - I - R - E
Don't wanna live! Don't wanna be! E - M - P - I - R - E
We just started out
You don't need to be afraid
Yeah you deserve two minutes hate
Well, we spit and we cursed and our bleeding hearts burst
But even ten million souls marching in February couldn't stop the worst
Couldn't reverse
Don't wanna live! Don't wanna give! Don't wanna be! E - M - P - I - R - E
Don't wanna live! Don't wanna be! E - M - P - I - R - E
