I Am EmpireLabor

Labor is coming for me
It's coming for all of my daylight
I'll savor the best of my friends
My lady, her kiss in the moonlight
I worked hard to save up my pay
But God did not say He was able
To give me the life I deserve
The comfort of knowing I'm stable

I can't relate to that promise You made
Cause I'm tired and barely awake
No I can't believe in that dream of relief
Cause I'm tired and always afraid
To live my life without You

Give me whatever I need
To keep my old head above water
Cause it's rising up like a flood
The danger of death is resounding
Then You came down from the clouds
Lifted me up like a feather
Told me the worst of your days are sinking away with an anchor

I can't relate to that promise You made
Cause I'm tired and barely awake
No I can't believe in that dream of relief
Cause I'm tired and always afraid
To live my life without You

Everyday I sit and wonder why
I waste my time for a nickel and a dime
Everyday I sit and wonder why
Everyday

I can't relate to that promise You made
Cause I'm tired and barely awake
No I can't believe in that dream of relief
Cause I'm tired and always afraid

I can't relate to that promise You made
Cause I'm tired and barely awake
No I can't believe in that dream of relief
Cause I'm tired and always afraid
To live my life without You
