Treasure Island

Age Of Empire


Who’ll build the homes where you live
Who’ll hunt the food and plant the seed
Who’ll cross the mountains, discover whole new lands
In self play mode, who will give a damn

Who’ll teach the children about the past
Who’ll sing the songs and make us laugh
Who’ll dream the future and put it in our grasp
In self play mode, who can sit and watch

For this is real, flesh and bone
Not play things on a screen
And what we are, is our trademark
Shared only by our dreams
Yes in this age of empire, it’s time we understand
Our future lies in each others hands

Who’ll build the boats to sail the seas
Who’ll write the laws and keep the peace
Who’ll end the wars and heal all that’s been harmed
In self play mode, who will play their part (the options not restart)

Yes this is real, flesh and bone
Not play things on a screen
And what we are, is our trademark
Shared only by our dreams
Yes in this age of empire, it’s time we understand
Our future lies in each others hands

Break

Yes this is real, flesh and bone
Not play things on a screen
And what we are, is our trademark
Shared only by our dreams
Yes in this age of empire, it’s time we understand
Our future lies in each others hands

Who’ll play the games and kick the goals
Who’ll cure the ills and mend the holes
Who’ll plan for the tomorrow and who’ll care for the old
In self play mode, who will be so bold

But this is real, flesh and bone
Not play things on a screen
And what we are, is our trademark
Shared only by our dreams
Yes in this age of empire, it’s time we understand
Our future lies in each others hands

Who’ll do what’s needed, there’s no need to second guess
In this age of empire, it’s you nonetheless

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
