Within Temptation – The Truth Beneath the Rose

The Truth Beneath the Rose

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
I believe it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

[Chorus]
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 that I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been, forgive me my sins!

[Verse 2]
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?

[Pre-Chorus]
I believe it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

[Chorus]
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 that I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been, forgive me my sins!

[Bridge]
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 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?

[Chorus]
(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 that I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been, forgive me my sins!

[Latin]
