Empty Church continues developing the philosophy of the Blind Shadows album. This song is about the men who are so tied to the material world, that they stop caring about the spirit. Even after death they continue their worldly deeds.


empty church
is standing alone
among the trees

rusty bells
have been keeping silence
for many years

broken walls
are not covering

burnt icons
are no more singing
the names of saints


once here a stranger came
with a blind despair
to find shelter from the storm

he saw obscure shadows inside
they continued to serve
the occult mass after death

he turned around
but couldn't leave
there was no way out
empty church
-the unbeliever
empty church
-the house of daemons
empty church
-eternal prison for fallen souls
