so this empire is nothing lyrics – current 93

so: this empire is nothing
before me the green fields are stretched out
the broken body of a cat glows there
and the shimmering flies fall
this empire is nothing
i said “i guess this isn’t real”
this empire is not real
i cannot hang words on the silence
everywhere god’s goldenlight
s. said “you have appeared to me for a reason”
and i said to her:
“who do you say i am?”
like one better before
