When your Empire falls

(Ded.to Col Muammar Gadhafi)*

When your empire falls
Your people suffer;
They walk through darkness,
Through the shadow of death,
Through the valley of no food,
No water, no nothin’.
Running round duckin’ stray 
Bullets, takin’ shots.

They die not that they want, 
Cause they’re exposed to.
The count of every single drop 
Of tears they shed is bitter cause 
It hurts to see a corpse and watch
A buddy dying.

Just when your empire falls
And you’re the most wanted 
Fugitive
You had always guaranteed your
People democracy
But now you leave’em hangin’
Defenseless, it’s senseless
You were a hero and now you r
 On your toes.

A message to the victims;
Let’s not cry cause it happened
Let’s appreciate the fact that it 
Happened.
In a dream you hear a voice,
Telling you not to stand near his 
Grave, weepin’ and cryin’ cause 
He’s not dead.
And tomorrow we’ll all luster.
