about

The feeling when you know that societal values will never quite match your own, and we are in a state of decay.

lyrics

There I was, a misanthrope
Rejecting open arms
And here I am alone and older
Regretting all that harm

Oh horses
Yr messing with these forces
Oh horses
Yr messing with these forces

These friends I like to judge
Did they fall short of my expectations?
Their best was never good enough
So I pushed them all away

Capricorn mother
Oh lucky sin
Who's your hero now, old man?
You didn't look within

Oh horses
Yr messing with these forces
Oh horses
Yr messing with these forces

These Imperial Times
They caught us by surprise
We were so busy hoping
They didn't tear up the lies

Oh These Imperial Times
They caught us by surprise
We can say we didn't see them
Cuz we always turned our eyes

Oh horses
Yr messing with these forces
Oh horses
Yr messing with these forces
