Within Temptation – The Truth Beneath The Rose lyrics

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
(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 darker 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 darker 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)

    Love this song so much. Love the vocal, she has a amazing voice that evokes ones emotions and the operatic way of singing and rocking background just make this song so cool and awesome. This song just invaded through me and touch my soul.
    And the lyrics is so meaningful and so true. It tells the reality. People are so blind and always get lost between two worlds. And this song describe it authentically, with sinful and remorseful soul, we pray for courage and strength for salvation.
    I had seen the cruelty of the truth, and struggle within the darkness. This song really fit me on. Within Temptation ftw.
