According to the The Fake Empire Songfacts, the song is a commentary on a generation lost to disillusion and apathy.


The National is a Brooklyn-based alternative rock band formed in 1999, by friends from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. The band's lyrics are written and sung by Matt Berninger in a distinctive, deep baritone. The rest of the band is composed of two pairs of brothers: Aaron Dessner (guitar, bass, keyboards), Bryce Dessner (guitar), Scott Devendorf (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). Their self-titled debut album"The National" (Brassland 2001) was recorded and released before they had played even a single show. Show more ...

Fake Empire - The National

Stay out super late tonight
Picking apples, making pies
Put a little something in our lemonade and take it with us
We're half-awake in a fake empire
We're half-awake in a fake empire

Tiptoe through our shiny city
With our diamond slippers on
Do our gay ballet on ice
Bluebirds on our shoulders
We're half-awake in a fake empire
We're half-awake in a fake empire

Turn the light out say goodnight
No thinking for a little while
Lets not try to figure out everything at once
It's hard to keep track of you falling through the sky
We're half-awake in a fake empire
We're half-awake in a fake empire
