We've been seeing what you want,
You've got us cornered right now
Falling asleep from our vanity
May 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 night that we've created
I wanna be awakened somehow
(I 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 them getting closer
The 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 night that we've created
I wanna be awakened somehow
(I 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 them getting closer
The 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 night that we've created
I wanna be awakened somehow
(I 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!

The sun is rising
The screams have gone
Too many have fallen
Few still stand tall
Is this the ending
Of what we've begun?
Will we remember
What we've done wrong?

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

    This song is great.
    The lyric is dark but very meaningfull and briliant.
    From this song Within Temptation say that war is useless.
    The war only make people suffer.
    I watched 2 version of videoclips for this song.
    The original and The Soundtrack version for the Chronicles Of Spellborn.
    Sharon den Adel look very beautiful in both video (Robert Westerholt, you're very lucky).

    there's no doubt in my mind that Within Temptation has been compared to Evanescence. Why compare the two? Evanescence is my favorite band of all time. they always will be. but Within Temptaion also has wonderful, powerful, lyrics and they r lead by a woman with great talent. the point is that both r amazing bands but im still standing by Evanescence!
