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 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?

(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!

Et est signum dies datus et tenebris
Mea culpa acta est fabula pereo
