Dethroned Emperor

  • See the portal, gate to madness
    Locked forever in a veil of shame

    Deny extraction
    Thirst for disgrace
    Watch his break
    The emperor's killed
    Light of the day
    Shadows from beyond
    Scaffold of steel
    The throne has gone

    Dethroned emperor

    The foot of the stairs, dimension in might
    The king sits, his eyes are glass

    Growing of the small
    The laughter's fall
    Can you deny
    Remaining cries?
    Descent of the lords
    Into the trap
    Existence and hate
    Unseen gate
