The Truth Beneath the Rose (Within Temptation)

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 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 Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast It is the darker side of me 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 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? Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast It is the darker side of me The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen Forgive me for what I have been Forgive me my sins
