The Truth Beneath The Rose

Album: The Heart of Everything (2007)
  • 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 believe it would justify the means
    It had a hold over me
    Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
    It is the darker side of me (forgive me my sins)
    The veil of my dreams deceived that 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 believe 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 darker side of me (forgive me my sins)
    The veil of my dreams deceived that 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 our 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?

    (Forgive me my sins) blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
    It is the darker side of me (forgive me my sins)
    The veil of my dreams deceived that I have seen
    Forgive me for what I have been
    Forgive me my sins! Writer/s: MARTIJN SPIERENBURG, SHARON DEN ADEL, ROBERT WESTERHOLT
