Within Temptation – Hidra Lyrics (2014)

1. Let Us Burn

Now darkness has come to the roses
The fire is reaching the end
The colours that I have created
Are suddenly flying away

I’m not fighting myself, will not follow
‘Cause my choices are mine, it’s my fate
And I’ll never bow down from the sorrow
I’ll face all that is coming my way

Denying the devil of silence
Embracing the world on the edge

Let us burn
Let us burn
And light up the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
Whoa, we’re fighting our fear of the silence
We’re running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

I’m searching no more for tomorrow
I reach for the skies while I can
The unknown will always be waiting
My last day I’ll jump in its hands

I’m not fighting myself, will not follow
‘Cause my choices are mine, it’s my fate
And I’ll never bow down from the sorrow
I’ll face all that is coming my way

Denying the devil of silence
Embracing the world on the edge

Let us burn
Let us burn
And light up the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
Whoa, we’re fighting our fear of the silence
We’re running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

Why, why don’t you let me burn?
Why don’t you count down and break out and let us burn?

Oh why, why don’t you let me burn?
Why don’t you let me burn?
Why don’t you let me burn?

Oh why you raising the demons in my mind?
Oh why am I waiting for chains throwing me to the ground?

Now darkness has come to the roses
The fire is reaching the end…

Let us burn
Let us burn
And light up the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
Whoa, we’re fighting our fear of the silence
We’re running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

2. Dangerous

(feat. Howard Jones)

I know I won’t change, I have tried
Was feeling so caged, hands tied
I can’t find anything feeling so right,
it’s blinding hope

The reaper is close, seen his smile
A matter of time, can’t deny
I won’t turn around, around, around
This destiny’s mine

The countdown has begun
the walls are falling down
my life is on the line
the freedom is mine…

It’s dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It’s dangerous, it’s what you like
It’s what you’ll die for to live this life
We’re going on and we’ll never stop
We’re going on ’til worlds collide
It’s dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

I know it’s not safe, close my eyes
I search for the edge of life
’cause that’s the only place I’ll ever find
that makes me whole

A thief in the night, out of sight
It’s out there waiting to ignite
the fever will rise, rise, rise
taking over my mind

The countdown has begun
the walls are falling down
my life is on the line
the freedom is mine…

It’s dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It’s dangerous, it’s what you like
It’s what you’ll die for to live this life
We’re going on and we’ll never stop
We’re going on ’til worlds collide
It’s dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

Nothing matters anyhow
It’s like I’m floating off the ground
Into the hands of air I dive
Rays of light flashing by

Like the time is slowing down
When the world is out of sight
All the memories in my mind
Won’t leave me behind
It’s dangerous… (dangerous)
It’s dangerous… (dangerous)
It’s dangerous!

It’s dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It’s dangerous, it’s what you like
It’s what you’ll die for to live this life
We’re going on and we’ll never stop
We’re going on ’til worlds collide
It’s dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

3. And We Run

(feat. Xzibit)

It burns into your heart, the darkness that you fear.
You were never free, and you never realized.
And love is a word you’ve never heard.
Your heart ain’t cold ’cause it burns,
A desire to leave the mire.

Take your breath ’til nothing’s left.
Scars of life upon your chest.
And I know wherever it goes

And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killing love
And we run, ’till the heavens above
Yeah we run, running in the dark
And we run, ’till we fall apart
And we run, ’till the heavens above

Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
Lift up your head.
We gotta get gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
Lift up your head.
Too late, we gone.
Yeah, we outta here.

And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killing love
And we long for a heavenly heart

I’ma break these chains, ran through the rain.
Never look back, never quit work through the pain.
This blood in my veins run cold
When I think it’ll never be the same
But I never lose hope.
This is my time now, no time for tears, to celebrate.
Put it in the air right now.
Never back down,
You can never wear my crown
’cause it weighs too much
And I crush every motherfucking thing I touch.
This is love I’ve never loved so much.
Get involved make the world stand up.
Give my life before I ever give up
“Name in lights”, you lost all my trust.
Now it’s time to face all of us.
Get in line cause they’re callin’ us
And it feels so marvelous
Just take my hand and run.

And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killing love
And we run, ’till the heavens above
Yeah we run, running in the dark
And we run, ’till we fall apart
And we run, ’till the heavens above

Yeah, we out of here.

Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
Lift up your head.
We gotta get gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
Lift up your head.
Too late, we gone.
Yeah, we outta here.

And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killing love
And we long for a heavenly heart

Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
Lift up your head.
We gotta get gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
Lift up your head.
Too late, we gone.
Yeah, we outta here.

4. Paradise (What About Us?)

(feat. Tarja)

There’s no sense, the fire burns
When wisdom fails it changes all
The wheel embodies all that keeps on turning

Blood red skies, I feel so cold
No innocence, we play our role
The wheel embodies all where are we going

All in all you’d expect the wise to be wiser
Fallen from grace
All and all I guess
We should have known better, ’cause…

What about us?
Isn’t it enough,
No we’re not in paradise

This is who we are
This is what we’ve got
No, it’s not our paradise

But it’s all we want,
And it’s all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not paradise

You and us, or I and them
There comes a time to take a stand
The wheel is watching all that keeps on burning

The venom works, it’s like a curse
A Trojan horse, when will we learn?
The wheel embodies all that keeps returning

All in all you’d expect the wise to be wiser
Fallen from grace
And all and all I guess
We should have known better, ’cause…

What about us?
Isn’t it enough,
No we’re not in paradise

This is who we are
This is what we’ve got
No, it’s not our paradise

But it’s all we want,
And it’s all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not paradise

(Solo)

What about us?
Isn’t it enough,
No we’re not in paradise

This is who we are
This is what we’ve got
No, it’s not our paradise

But it’s all we want,
And it’s all that we’re fighting for

What about us?
Isn’t it enough,
No we’re not in paradise

This is who we are
This is what we’ve got
No, it’s not our paradise

But it’s all we want,
And it’s all that we’re fighting for
But it’s not paradise

What about us, what about us, what about us, isn’t it enough?
What about us, what about us, what about us, isn’t it enough?
What about us, what about us, what about us, isn’t it enough?
What about us, what about us, what about us, isn’t it enough!

5. Edge Of The World

Cannot swallow the soil,
Make it all beautiful
Cannot carry you, carry you, carry you now

The truth can’t bear the sunlight.
You’re afraid for the day it does.
And when I told you so, I got burned, burned, burned again

Heaven forbid that my heart is for sale.
Hope in the end, truth prevails.

I’m gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Feel that I’m gonna get home if I try.
I’m gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Need to find my way home, home.

You’re as proud as a god
But I believed in your heart
And I’ll be leaving you, leaving you, leaving you now.

The truth can’t bear the sunlight.
And don’t pretend to be my guide.
You said you’d change it all but I got burned, burned, burned instead.

Heaven can wait ’cause my soul ain’t for sale.
Hope in the end, truth prevails.

(2x)
I’m gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Feel that I’m gonna get home if I try.
I’m gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Need to find my way home, home.

Justify
No more lies.
Once upon a time.

6. Silver Moonlight

Turn around, open your eyes
Can’t move on, the fear is tying you down
Open your eyes
It’s alright…

I’m hell bound in this life
Keep fighting this endless war
It’s always been like this I don’t know why
Enslavement of your mind
Your fear, it ties me down
Going down, I won’t bow, no!

Screaming at the walls of fire
They’re closing in on me (closing in on me)
I hunger for the vertigo, the silver moonlight
It’s where I wanna be (it’s where I wanna be)
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I’m still running free (I’m still running free)
In the silver moonlight I can breathe

Wooooo
(I can breathe)
Wooooo

These days are only now
Breathing in the coldest lies
I think that’s only what you have in mind
Holding on to the best of you
I hit the pavement
Going down, I won’t bow, don’t!

Screaming at the walls of fire
They’re closing in on me (closing in on me)
I hunger for the vertigo, the silver moonlight
It’s where I wanna be
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I’m still running free (I’m still running free)
In the silver moonlight I can breathe

I’m impatient
But it’s colors that I need
Too many shades of gray
I cannot breath (I can’t breathe)
The dreams I have ain’t tainted
I need you to believe
The only way to make them real
Oh

(I can breathe)

Screaming at the walls of fire
They’re closing in on me (closing in on me)
I hunger for the vertigo, the silver moonlight
It’s where I wanna be
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I’m still running free (I’m still running free)
In the silver moonlight I can breathe

Wooooo
(I can breathe)
Wooooo

Turn around, open your eyes
Can’t move on, the fear is tying you down
Open your eyes
It’s alright…

7. Covered By Roses

I feel my heart explode to particles.
Love is always here and I told you so.
Restless in dreams, love carved in stone
This rhapsody of life in a way, I guess, we all know it.

Hand in hand we stand while we watch it flow
Heaven can you help us, no we can’t go.

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die.
The choirs have awoken
Left no words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can
Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time,
Need to live every moment

We built our castles high, turned our dreams to gold.
We took the blows with pride, went through it all.
The dawn is closing in, new tales are told.
This rhapsody of life in a way, I guess, we all know.

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die.
The choirs have awoken
Left no words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can
Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time,
Need to live every moment

For all we are is falling stars in the night
A blinding light raging down from the sky
The rise and fall, the rhapsody of our lives
It’s all we know, we’ve got to let go

(Spoken:)
She dwells with beauty, beauty that must die.
And joy, whose hand is ever at his lips.
His soul shall taste the sadness of her might
And be among her cloudy trophies hung.

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die.
The choirs have awoken
Left no words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can
Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time,
Need to live every moment

8. Dog Days

Wake up in the dead of night
Dogs are turning wild
Run into what’s wrong each time
Fail to get it right
Fighting off this heavy heart
Keeping your head high

Oh won’t you please forget
Won’t you please forget

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Leading our hearts astray
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Soon they will fade away

1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

Awakened by dreams at night
Chills run down your spine
The brightest star in summer skies
Brings madness to our minds
Fighting off the darkest thoughts
Fighting to survive

Oh won’t you please forget
Oh won’t you please forget

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Leading our hearts astray
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Soon they will fade away

1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

Embracing the highs to fight the lows
Running down the path that I think I need to go
When you think you’ve won, you’re still losing after all
These are the dog days, these are the dog days

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Leading our hearts astray
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Soon they will fade away

1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

These are the dog days, these are the dog days!
These are the dog days, these are the dog days!
These are the dog days, these are the dog days!
These are the dog days, these are the dog days

9. Tell Me Why

I’ve been losing myself in anger
So much broken by the rage
Nothing could take my mind off
How to make them pay
Killing myself for nothing
And the pain won’t go away
Losing myself to madness
And the game’s been played

If I could turn the hands of time
I would but here I am

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still trying to hold on
I’ve got to tear it down to let it go
I’m too tired to keep on trying
But I’m spellbound ‘til the end
Knowing that there’s no closure
For my wars inside
I’ve buried the good and evil
Only memories left behind
I am the one still standing
I will live to tell

If I could turn the hands of time
I would but here I am
(Here I am!)

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still trying to hold on
I’ve got to tear it down to let it go

Tell me why I’m wasting away,
Tell me how to break my own chains,
‘Cause I’m losing after all,
How can I escape this grim fate
Tell me how to face one more day,
‘Cause I’m wasting away

(Guitar solo)

It’s all gone silent
I’m searching for fire
Nothing to fight for alone

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still trying to hold on
I’ve got to tear it down to let it go

10. Whole World Is Watching

(feat. Dave Pirner)

You live your life. You go day by day like nothing can go wrong.
The scars are made, they’re changing the game. You learn to play it hard.

And I know you wish for more, and I know you try.
And now you realize, you know the time is right.

The whole world is watching when you rise.
The whole world is beating for you right now.
Your whole life is flashing ‘fore your eyes.
It’s all in this moment that changes all.

What are you waiting for?
What are you fighting for?
‘Cause time’s always slipping away.
The whole world is watching.
The whole world is watching you when you rise.

You build your walls then break them away ’cause that is what it takes.
You saved yourself. You found who you are. That never goes away.

And I know you wish for more, and I know you try.
And now you realize, you know the time is right.

The whole world is watching when you rise.
The whole world is beating for you right now.
Your whole life is flashing ‘fore your eyes.
It’s all in this moment that changes all.

What are you waiting for?
What are you fighting for?
‘Cause time’s always slipping away.
The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching you when you rise.

Your sacrifice comes through your mind, but nothing is wasted. You made it now.
You rise again, breaking out. Each step you’ve taken, you’ve paid the price

The whole world is watching.

The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching you when you rise.

What are you waiting for?
What are you fighting for?
‘Cause time’s always slipping away.
The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching you when you rise.
