The time has come
Arise from death
Victory is close at hand
Take up the sword and follow me
Out of nothing into a new creation
A thousand decades of despair will pass away in an instant
And You and I will be there
With hands raised in victory
Fall on your knees
The time has come

    General CommentNot quite sure what the song means, the title reads "From Nothing" or "Out of Nothing" in English...

    I do know, however, that there is some truly awesome guitar work on this song.

    General Commentex nihilo is also the term used for creationism. i fully think this is a mix of God's creating everything coinciding with the Second Coming.

    Truly amazing song. especially the part at 2:55.

    General Commentan awesome display of guitar and vocals, awesomeness, I say.
    Their lyrics are always great.
    An uplifting song, something one can listen to anytime, and the guitar solo parts along with drums are great also. This band's got skills.
