Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns

It's a cultural shift, it's the North Atlantic drift
Americana and a rule Britannia
And the moon, yes, we own that too
And where the Euphrates meets the other river
Is now the home of the devil and the liar
And the pyre we plan to make is just the drift leaving its wake, ah

Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns

And the films you want to watch and the films you want to make
And the kids, like lost angels dressed in black sensations
