Sebastian Blanck: Would You Kill for the Empire of the Free?





By on July 28, 2010

This song, from Alibi Coast, the new album by Sebastian Blanck, raises important questions on many levels, from the political to the cosmological.

I wrote a novel on the wall
With every line and with every thought
The ceiling fell until I was caught
By an angel who wanted it all
An angel who wanted to be the devil
And he thought ‘nother house to me he could be

If God asked me to get my gun
And asked me to give it to my son
Well I know I’ll never understand
Why I would have to give my child to him

What do you believe?
Would you kill another man
For the Empire of the Free?
What do you believe?
Would you kill another man?
Would you kill me
For the Empire of the Free?

If God asked me to get my gun
And asked me to give it to my son
Well I know I’ll never understand
Why I would have to give my child to him
