Inland Empire

(SILAS/ Guy Murrel)
March 5, 2006
By he time they get to Phoenix there'll be no more than a trail of dust.
Every home with an ocean view did you bring your glasses son?
The high cost of living and neighbors you can't trust.
Don't need air conditioning feel the breeze don't make no fuss.

Welcome to the Inland Empire
Welcome to the land in the sun.
Pack your bags from here to Rancho Cucamonga.
They don't really care where you come from.

There's nothing known as green sprawl when you're building on a bed of sand.
They'll tell you it's okay son if for money you exploit the land.
It's the gold mine of gold mines everbody needs a home.
If you can't make the payments you can always sell your soul.

Welcome to the Inland Empire...
Pack your bags from here to Houston, Texas
They don't really care...

Your living in the middle of the all time community
Stretches for miles and miles as far as anyone can see

Welcome to the Inland Empire...
Pack your bags from here to sunny Baghdad
They don't really care...
Hundred dollars down and a hundred dollars a day for the rest of your life
