LYRICS
Death has reared himself a
throne
In a strange city
Alone
Death has reared himself a
throne
In a strange city
Alone
Their shrines and palaces are
not like ours
They do not tremble and rot
Eaten with time
Death has reared himself a
throne
Lifted by forgotten winds
Resignedly beneath the sky
The melancholy waters lie
A crown of stars
In a strange city
Alone
A heaven God does not condemn
But the everlasting shadow
Makes mockery of it all
No holy rays come down
Lights from the lurid deep sea
Stream up the turrets silently
Up thrones, up arbors
Of sculpted ivy and stone
flowers
Up domes, up spires
Kingly halls all are melancholy
shrines
The columns, frieze and
entablature
Chokingly shockingly intertwined
The mast the viol and the vine
Twisted
There amid no earthly moans
Hell rises from a thousand
thrones
Does reverence to death
And death does give his
undivided time
There are open temples
And graves on a level with the
waves
Death looms and looks
Huge
Gigantic
There is a ripple
Now a wave
Towers thrown aside
Sinking in the dull tide
