Ancient empires

I heard that the earth is littered with ruins of empires that believed they were forever

And you and you and you

Are the kind of boys that I should be with if I were a good girl

If we still lived under the empire of men

We could’ve been equals then

In the place where we stood,

We stood among a row of columns in that temple to an old god

And as I walked away I looked behind and saw we were one of the columns too, and the temple roof started to cave in where I once stood

I am light and freedom

I am no god nor temple

I am not your leader
