dem lyrics – dalit

behold a tragic display
a spectacle of endless ruin
cosmos, my empire
crumbling to shards

i mourn the ashes of my temple
defiled by many and scorned by many more
the hymns we sang
now forgotten
the congregations spread to the winds

i shed the last shred of my dignity
as i walk the last pillar crumble
now even the sh*ll collapse
losing definition
the ruins of my empire

my treasures the wealth of my empire
turns to ashes in my mouth
i inhale the scent of a thousand tomorrows
as i greet them from my ruin
