Steve Earle - Little Emperor Lyrics

Hey little Emperor, come down from your throne
The hourglass is empty, your time has come and gone
The battlements are crumbliní the walls are tumbliní down
Your counselors and concubines are gettingí out of town
Some say itís an omen, some say itís the winds of change
Which every way itís goingí itís blowiní 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
Standiní on the corner, your fortune blowiní in the wind
Daddy didnít warn that there ainít no going home again

No pomp and circumstance, no more shock and awe
Youíre just a little emperor, thatís all

Hey little hypocrite, what you gonna say
When you wind up standiní naked on the final judgment day
How you gonna justify it, who you gonna call
What if it turns out God doesnít look like you at all
The leaves are in the teacup, the hieroglyphics on the wall
You ainít the first to rise up, you sure wonít be last to fall

Hey little emperor, come down from your throne
And let another emperor climb on
