Emperor – The Eruption lyrics
And... after years in dark tunnels He
came to silence There

was nothing He...

realised that the cheering cries of worship Were
but echoes of his harsh outspoken word Reflecting
back at him from cold and naked walls In
hollow circles fled illusions of wisdom he had heard "From

nothing came all I ever knew" And

he beheld the ruins Of
an empire torn apart Yet
no, grief nor rage did bind him Just
silent and bewildered By
the emptiness He
stumbled off his throne Suddenly

the, walls around him cracked wide open And
an endless void appeared in flickering grey, light "What
force but, silence has, deprived me of my coil No?

trail to guide me No. point of reference in sight ". "By

nothing resurrection, will be pure ".And

he beheld the ruins Of
an empire torn apart Wiping
dust off his shoulders Just
silent now In
this emptiness Leaving
all behind Step

by step Past
all past Slowly
he approached the surface Nothing
left To
sacrifice The
mirrors mocked him on the way
