Dar Williams – Empire

Dar Williams is a female singer songwriter who in this song had politics on her mind.

As this is from 2005, the target is probably US president George W. Bush, and his “war on terror,” a campaign Williams does not accept we support blindingly. The lyrics may be implying a motivation for the president’s actions is empire building, as if a president is like an ancient, conquering leader with a messianic complex.
