Within Temptation
"The Truth Beneath The Rose" lyrics

The Truth Beneath The Rose

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 darker side of me
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 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

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
It is the darker side of me
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've 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?

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
It is the darker side of me
The veil of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins

Et est signum
Dies datus
Et tenebris
Mea culpa acta est fabula pereo
