​End of an Empire

This song is by Celldweller and appears on the album End of an Empire (2015).

Original video
At the edge of the hellfire
It's the end of an empire
In the line of the gunfire
It's the end of an empire again, again, again
It's the end of an empire

A start, an end, a rise and fall
No system eternal and no one immortal
Creation; all must end in destruction
We cannot change the fate of civilization

(Start, end) We build up the symbols of power
(Rise, fall) Constructs of a mortal mind
(Lifespan) Conquer in our brightest hour
(Mortal) But then we all must fall in time

Through space and time
We can't escape this paradigm

At the edge of the hellfire
It's the end of an empire
In the line of the gunfire
It's the end of an empire again, again
It's the end of an empire

(Time, love) Kingdoms, each of us reigning
(Dreams, death) Over the realms of our hearts and minds
(Takes mine) Conscious that death is awaiting
(Scene end) But even death will end in time

Through space and time
We can't escape this paradigm

At the edge of the hellfire
It's the end of an empire
In the line of the gunfire
It's the end of an empire again, again
It's the end of an empire

In the death of a desire
It's the end of an empire
At the close of a lifetime
It's the end of an empire

At the edge of the hellfire
It's the end of an empire
In the line of the gunfire
It's the end of an empire again, again, again, again
It's the end of an empire again
It's the end of an empire

We're falling into the unknown
Another ending that's beginning to unfold
We're falling into the unknown (It's the end)
Another ending that's beginning to unfold
It's the end of an empire

We're falling into the unknown (It's the end)
Another ending that's beginning to unfold (It's the end)
We're falling into the unknown (It's the end)
Another ending that's beginning to unfold
It's the end of an empire
It's the end of an empire
