Within Temptation – The Reckoning lyrics
(feat. Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach)

[Verse 1: Sharon Den Adel]
As cold as stone, they march in darkness
Enslaving the young and killing their fathers
But soon they'll know the path they've chosen
Has carved their faith in stone

[Pre-Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line of reckoning

[Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
Red tears run down like a river
Don't close your eyes, it won't disappear
No fear you wanna end the pain
Don't let go, don't back down, hold the line, we'll bring the reckoning

[Post-Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line of reckoning

[Verse 2: Jacoby Shaddix]
We're all alone, walking in twilight
The night has been long and so many have fallen
Feel no remorse, light will be breaking
Our freedom is worth it all

[Pre-Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We'll rise against, we'll always hold the line of reckoning

[Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
Red tears run down like a river
Don't close your eyes, it won't disappear
No fear you wanna end the pain
Don't let go, don't back down, hold the line, we'll bring the reckoning

[Bridge: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
I see your face, find piece of mind
Between the madness and the sadness and the fire burning
The end of war, the great divine
We'll see the day of reckoning

[Outro: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We'll rise against, we'll always hold the line of reckoning
We'll bring the reckoning
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line of reckoning
