Steve Earle lyrics : "Little Emperor"

Hey Little Emperor
Come down from your throne
The hour glass is empty

Your time has come and gone
The battlements are crumblin'
The walls are tumblin' down

Your counselors and concubines
Are gettin' outta town


Some say it's an omen
Some say it's the winds of change
Which ever way it's goin'

It's blowin' like a hurricane

Hey Little Conqueror

Where you gonna go
The world is even smaller
Than it was when you left home

Emptiness in front of you
And detritus behind
Nobody ever told you

That history was kind
Standin' on the corner
Your fortune blowin' in the wind

Daddy didn't warn ya
There ain't no goin' home again


No pomp and circumstance
No more Shaock and Awe
You're just a Little Emperor

That's all

Hey Little Hypocrite

What you gonna say
When you wind up standin' naked
On the final Judgement Day

How you gonna justify it
Who you gonna call
What if it turns out that

God don't look like you at all
The leaves are in the teacup
The hieroglyphics on the wall

You ain't the first to rise up
You sure won't be the last to fall


Hey Little Emperor
Come down from your throne
And let another emperor climb on
