01. The Howling

Music by Within Temptation
We've been seeing what you wanted, got us cornered right now
Falling asleep from our vanity might cost us our lives

I hear them getting closer, their howls are sending chills down my spine
Time is running out now, they're coming down the hills from behind

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created
I want to be awakened somehow (wanna be awakened right now)

When we start killing
It all will be falling down
From the hell that we're in, all we are is fading away
When we start killing

We've been searching on and on but there's no trace to be found
It's like they all have just vanished but I know they're around

I feel they're getting closer, their howls are sending chills down my spine
Time is running out now, they're coming down the hills from behind

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created
I want to be awakened somehow (wanna be awakened right now)

When we start killing
It all will be falling down
From the hell that we're in, all we are is fading away
When we start killing
When we start killing

I feel they're getting closer, their howls are sending chills down my spine
Time is running out now, they're coming down the hills from behind...

The sun is rising, the screams have gone
Too many have fallen, few still stand tall
Is this the end of what we begun
Will we remember what we've done wrong?

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created
I want to be awakened somehow (wanna be awakened right now)

When we start killing
It all will be falling down
From the hell that we're in, all we are is fading away
When we start killing
When we start killing
When we start killing...


02. What Have You Done

Music by Within Temptation
Would you mind if I hurt you?
Understand that I need to
Wish that I had other choices
than to harm the one I love

What have you done now?

I know I better stop trying
You know that there's no denying
I won't show mercy on you now
I know I should stop beleiving
I know that there's no retrieving
It's over now
What have you done?

What have you done now?

I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away
(what have you done now?)
Why? Why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us
Between me and you

What have you done?

Would you mind if I killed you?
Would you mind if I tried to?
Cause you have turned into my worst enemy
You carry hate that I don't feel
It's over now
What have you done?

What have you done now?

I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away
(what have you done now?)
Why? why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us
Between me and you

What have you done?

I will not fall
Won't let it go
We will be free when it ends

I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away
(what have you done now?)
Why? why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us
Between me and you


03. Frozen

Music by Within Temptation
I can't feel my senses
I just feel the cold
All colors seem to fade away
I can't reach my soul

I won't stop running
If I knew there was a chance
It tears me apart to sacrifice it all
But I'm forced to let go

Tell me I'm frozen
What can I do?
Can't tell the reasons
I did it for you!
When lies turn into truth
I sacrifice for you
You say that I am frozen
What can I do?!

I can feel your sorrow

You won't forgive me
But I know you'll be alright
It tears me apart that you will never know
But I have to let go

Tell me I'm frozen
What can I do?
Can't tell the reasons
I did it for you!
When lies turn into truth
I sacrifice for you
You say that I am frozen
What can I do?!

Everything will slip away
Shattered pieces will remain
When memories fade into emptiness
Only time will tell its tale
If it all has been in vain

I can't feel my senses
I just feel the cold

Frozen
What can I do?
Frozen

Tell me I'm frozen
What can I do?
Can't tell the reasons
I did it for you!
When lies turn into truth
I sacrifice for you
You say that I am frozen


04. Our Solemn Hour

Music by Within Temptation
Santus, espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Santus, espiritus, insanity is all around us
Santus, espiritus

In my darkest hours
I could not foresee
That the time could turn so fast to this degree
Can't believe my eyes
How can you be so blind
Is the heart of stone, no empathy inside
To keep from slipping away
And we haven't learned
So in the end what have we gained?

Santus, espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Santus, espiritus, insanity is all around us
Santus, espiritus is this what we deserve
Can we break free from chains of neverending agony?

Are they themselves to blame
The misery, the pain
Didn't we let go, allowed it, let it grow?
If we can't restrain
The beast that dwells inside
It will find its way somehow, somewhere in time

Will we remember all of the suffering
Cause if we fail it will be in vain

Santus, espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hours
Santus, espiritus, insanity is all around us
Santus, espiritus is this what we deserve
Can we break free from chains of neverending agony?


05. The Heart Of Everything

Music by Within Temptation
Nor the pain and the sorrow
Caused by my mistakes
Won't repent to a mortal
Whom is all to blame
Now I know I won't make it
There will be a time
We'll get back our freedom
They can't break what's inside

I'll face it
Cause it's the heart of everything

Open up your eyes
Save yourself from fading away now
Don't let it go
Open up your eyes
See what you've become, don't sacrifice
It's truly the heart of everything
Open up your eyes

Stay with me now I'm facing
My last solemn hour
Very soon i'll embrace you
On the other side
Hear the crowd in the distance
Screaming out my faith
Now the voices are fading
I can feel no more pain

I'll face it
Cause it's the heart of everything

Open up your eyes
Save yourself, from fading away now
Don't let it go
Open up your eyes
See what you've become, don't sacrifice
It's truly the heart of everything

Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes

Open up your eyes
Save yourself, from fading away now
Don't let it go
Open up your eyes
See what you've become, don't sacrifice
It's truly the heart of everything


06. Hand Of Sorrow

Music by Within Temptation
The child without a name grew up to be the hand
To watch you, to shield you, or kill on demand
The choice he'd made he could not comprehend
His blood a grim secret they had to command

He's torn between his honour and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams are broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

The curse of his powers tormented his life
Obeying the crown was a sinister crime
His soul was tortured by love and by pain
He surely would flee but the oath made him stay

He's torn between his honour and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams are broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

Please forgive me for the sorrow
For leaving you in fear
For the dreams we had to silence
That's all they'll ever be
Still I'll be the hand that serves you
Though you'll not see that it is me

So many dreams are broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?


07. The Cross

Music by Within Temptation
Nothing's ever changed, you still turn away
You've washed your hands
You've made that all too clear
You just keep on living this lie

You refuse to see, you're denying me
The cross I bear
But you don't seem to care
Even Judas knew he had lied

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears

Why have you waited to embrace me, my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why
I'm still calling your name, my dear

I'm sorry if you can't stand the naked truth
All you see is how you want it to be
So you keep on living your lie

Release me from this cross after all these years
Call my name and help me with this weight
Even though it comes far too late

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears

Why have you waited to embrace me, my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why
I'm still calling your name

And I wonder, oh, I wonder

In my heart I still hope you will open the door
You can purify it all, answer my call

Why have you waited to embrace me, my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why
I'm still calling your name

And I wonder, oh, I wonder

In my heart I still hope you will open the door
You can purify it all, answer my call


08. Final Destination

Music by Within Temptation
I escaped my final moment,
But it's turning back at me
On every corner I can feel it waiting
Just a moment, no awareness,
I can easily slip away.
And then I'll be gone forever!

I'm searching
I'm finding for a way to get through
To turn it away

It's waiting, always trying
Feel the hands of fate
They're suffocating
Tell me what's the reason
Is it only inside my head?
Can't take it no more

All around me I see danger
And it's closing in on me
Every second I can hear it breathing
I can't stand the feeling inside of me
'Cause it's leading me astray
And it will be my ending

I'm searching
I'm finding for a way to get through
To turn it away

It's waiting, always trying
Feel the hands of fate
They're suffocating
Tell me what's the reason
Is it only inside my head?
Can't take it no more

But no one faced what's coming my way
And I will let my fear fade away
Whatever may be, I'll have to find out

It's waiting, always trying
Feel the hands of fate
They're suffocating.
Tell me what's the reason
Is it only inside my head?
Can't take it no more


09. All I Need

Music by Within Temptation
I'm dying to catch my breath
oh why don't I ever learn?
I've lost all my trust
though I've surely try to turn it around

Can you still see the heart of me
all my agony fades away
when you hold me in your embrace

Don't tearr me down
for all i need
make my heart a better place
give me something I can believe
Don't tear me down
you've opened the door now
don't let it close

I'm here on the edge again
I wish I could let it go
I know that I'm only one step away
From turning it around

Can you still see the heart of me
all my agony fades away
when you hold me in your embrace

Don't tear me down
for all I need
make my heart a better place
give me something I can believe
Don't tear it down
what's left of me
make my heart a better place

i've tried many times but nothing was real
make it fade away
don't break me down
I want to believe that this is for real
save me from my fear
don't tear me down

don't tear me down
for all I need
make my heart a better place

don't tear me down
for all I need
make my heart a better place
give me something i can believe
don't tear it down
what's left of me
make my heart a better place


10. The Truth Beneath The Rose

Music by Within Temptation
Give me strength to face the truth
The doubt within my soul
No longer I can justify
The bloodshed in his name

Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
Pray with me so I will find the gate to Heaven's door

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
It is the darkest side of me
Forgive me my sins

The veil of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins

Pray for me 'cause I have lost my faith in holy wars
Is paradise denied to me 'cause I can't take no more

Has darkness taken over me
Consumed my mortal soul?
All my virtues sacrificed
Can Heaven be so cruel?

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me
Forgive me my sins

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
It is the darkest side of me
Forgive me my sins

The veil of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins

I'm hoping, I'm praying
I won't get lost between two worlds
For all I have seen
The truth lies in between

Give me the strength to face the wrong that I have done
Now that I know the darkest side of me

How can blood be your salvation
And justify the pain
That we have caused throughout the times

Will I learn what's truly sacred?
Will I redeem my soul?
Will truth set me free?

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
It is the darkest side of me
Forgive me my sins

The veil of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins


11. Forgiven

Music by Within Temptation
Couldn't save you from the start
Love you so it hurts my soul
Can you forgive me for trying again?
Your silence makes me hold my breath
Time has passed you by

For so long, I've tried to shield you from the world
You couldn't face the freedom on your own
Here I am
Left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done is forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done is forgiven

I watched the clouds drifting away
Still the sun can't warm my face
I know it was destined to go wrong
You were looking for the great escape
To chase your demons away

For so long, I've tried to shield you from the world
You couldn't face the freedom on your own
Here I am
Left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done is forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done is forgiven

I've been so lost since you've gone
Why not me before you?
Why did fate deceive me?
Everything turned out so wrong
Why did you leave me in silence?

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done is forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done is forgiven


12. The Last Time

For so long I've tried.
Could not close my eyes.
When you became a outcast in this life.

Again and again I try
to understand the demons inside your head,
but the truth is you love them to death.

Now, I know it's the last time I have tried
to lift you up, to make you fight.
Nothing is ever easy in life.
I can't change it if you don't have the will deep inside.

I have been blind to how you justify
everything that you've wasted in this life.

Got lost in the illusion,
I'd find a solution for the demons in your head,
but the truth is you love them to death.

Now, I know it's the last time I have tried
to lift you up, to make you fight.
Nothing is ever easy in life.
I can't change it if you don't have the will deep inside.

You can blame and you can hide
behind what is wrong and what is right.
Life is the choices we make
I hope you'll awake before it's too late.

Now, I know it's the last time I have tried
to lift you up, to make you fight.
Nothing is ever easy in life.
I can't change it if you don't have the will deep inside.


13. Sounds Of Freedom

Your call is coming
I'm dreaming away
For what lies hidden
It needs to be found

Sounds of freedom make me wanna try

When the ghosts are found
They will lead us to tomorrow
Sounds of freedom make me wanna try

Voices forgotten
I hear them close by
Ghosts from the past i can see through their eyes
Are these the ancestors leaving me signs?

Sounds of freedom make me wanna try

When the ghosts are found
They will lead us to tomorrow
Sounds of freedom make me wanna try

The sounds, they are all around
Forces start moving out
Taking sides, though there's so much
That I need to know
And soon it will be shown

Sounds of freedom make me wanna try

When the ghosts are found
They will lead us to tomorrow
Sounds of freedom make me wanna try

When the ghosts are found, they will lead us to tomorrow
When the ghosts are found, they will lead us to tomorrow

If we could restart how it was before tomorrow.


14. Blue Eyes

Blue eyes just smile to the world
Full of dreams and with fascination
Too soon she saw that her hands were
Chained and pulled without any freedom

It's always the same, they fear no way out
I can not break it, I can't take it no more

It's burning me up inside
Lost all my tears, can't cry
No reason, no meaning
Just hatred
No matter how hard I try
You fear the beast inside
It's growing, it's waiting
Just to hurt you

This heart was hurt by the lights
And I see your world that tries to deny us
Now everything that I love
Has died or has been shattered to pieces

It's always the same, they fear no way out
I can not break it, I can take it no more

It's burning me up inside
Lost all my tears, can't cry
No reason, no meaning
Just hatred
No matter how hard I try
You fear the beast inside
It's growing, it's waiting
Just to hurt you

Can't you see their eyes, what lies inside
They've given up, they no longer shine
Too soon they'll close with one last cry
Before they turn to light

It's burning me up inside
Lost all my tears, can't cry
No reason, no meaning
Just hatred
No matter how hard I try
You fear the beast inside
It's growing, it's waiting
Just to hurt you
