Emperor – In The Wordless Chamber lyrics

[Originally released in 2001 on the album "Prometheus - The Discipline of Fire and Demise".]

[Music: Ihsahn.]
[Lyrics: Ihsahn.]
[5: 12]

In the wordless chamber
They feared Death
Thus they clustered
To the fruits of the Earth.
Craving diversion,
As if to avoid knowing why.

In the wordless chamber
They feared life
Thus they proclaimed
Any given truth
And swallowed,
As if to justify their fear.

He knew that there had been hordes of seers
Before him who set out to cure.
Though, the sick wished not to part with their decease,
As if it made them feel alive.

In the wordless chamber
He accepted desperation
And the unpredictable manifestations
Of hope.
