Lyrics:

Pompeii

Verse 1

From the distance came a roaring
And a force that shook the ground
Dark skies raining earth and fire
Like Vulcan’s hammer coming down

Only stones and bones remaining
And a story of the past
In the shadow of the mountain
Buried deep beneath the ash

Pre-Chorus

And the tales they told
Of Atlantis old
No longer seemed so odd
As they watched the flames
Coming down like waves
A storm to drown them all
A storm to drown them all

Chorus

Lost to fire but not to time
Until the story fades
What we unearth we give rebirth
The ghosts of old Pompeii

Lost to fire but not to time
Until the story fades
What we unearth we give rebirth
The ghosts of old Pompeii

Interlude (Instrumental)

Verse 2

From the ships they saw the burning
And the dark cloud drawing near
Heard the screams of people fleeing
In the chaos and the fear

And they turned to the commander
Contemplating safe retreat
But the people needed rescue
So he ordered forth the fleet

Pre-Chorus

And the tales they told
Of Atlantis old
No longer seemed so odd
As they watched the flames
Coming down like waves
A storm to drown them all
A storm to drown them all

Chorus

Lost to fire but not to time
Until the story fades
What we unearth we give rebirth
The ghosts of old Pompeii

Bridge

Only stones and bones remaining
And the words scratched into wax
Of the city and the mountain
And the past beneath the ash

Break

Chorus

Lost to fire but not to time
Until the story fades
What we unearth we give rebirth
The ghosts of old Pompeii

Lost to fire but not to time
Until the story fades
What we unearth we give rebirth
The ghosts of old Pompeii

Lost to fire but not to time
Until the story fades
What we unearth we give rebirth
The ghosts of old Pompeii
[Exit]
