dedicated to Ben

There is trouble in my mind
There is dark, there is dark and there is light
Lay your hands over my eyes
As I look deep, through valleys deep and wide
Across the borderline for the empire in my mind
You are the reason I don't sleep
You are the light that's breaking through the leaves
And you know how hard I try
To believe I have something good inside
All the barricades, I climb for the empire in my mind
I have known love, somewhere in time
I've been lifted up, I've looked honor in the eyes
I got no reason, I got no rhyme
I cannot deny there's a darkness that's inside
I am guilty by design and now I realize
The temptations made me blind to the empire in my mind
There is no order, there is chaos and there is crime
There is no one home tonight in the empire of my mind
There is no distance that I don't see
I do have a world, no limit to my reach
I wish, I would, I wish, I might
forsee a line tonight, separating wrong from right
As I am only born to try and maybe that's the reason why
I'm afraid someday I'll find there is no empire in my mind
