Fake Empire Lyrics

Stay out super late tonight picking apples, making pies

Put a little something in our lemonade and take it with us

We're half awake in a fake empire

We're half awake in a fake empire

Tiptoe through our shiny city with our diamond...

    The lyrics explain that everybody is happy and not having a care in the world. "Fake Empire" means the same the same condition that America is in right now i.e, our world is falling apart, disasters, murderers, hopes and dreams being crushed when nobody notices and everything seems to be law dee da. Basic words: we're all so naive in reality.
