We are the Empire
We are the Kings and Queens of the mountain
We have all the worldly power
We own more, consume more, and pollute more

Is the pain one has

Is the fear one feels
When one knows
That others
Hate one

The fear we feel
Is the fear
One feels
When one feels guilty
For what one has done

The hate we feel
Is the hate one feels
Towards those
Who hate one

And, we have all the worldly power
So, we must know this pain, fear, and hate
