Within Temptation – Entertain You [With Subtitles]

By Vadim Dovganyuk

There’s always a group of people in society that doesn’t fit in and somehow we always have a need to emphasize that they do not fit in by singling them out, cornering them in all sorts of ways – think of viral videos, fights on the streets, et cetera. These people didn’t ask to be different, they simply are just different. The beauty is that by being different, these people bring so much color to our society, since our society is so uniform! These people are not here for our entertainment, so we can feel good about ourselves. If you don’t realise that, it’s maybe time for bit more self reflection and wonder why you are participating in such behaviour.

~ Sharon den Adel, founding member and lead singer Within Temptation – the Netherlands, May 2020

Lyrics:
Don’t be mistaken.
Your bloody time’s up.
This ain’t no game.
We’re not here to entertain you.

I’m not here to entertain you.

Don’t be mistaken.
Your bloody time’s up.
This ain’t no game.
We’re not here to entertain you.

You get your fix sitting on your throne.
You want it all and the price, it doesn’t matter.
The world is yours and you think you know it all.
I know that smile, so, I should have known.
You sold me out for a reckless bet, you burnt me.
Off the ground, now I won’t back down anymore.
Now you didn’t have to burn me.

You think you own me, but I wouldn’t be so sure.
You want a battle, but you’re gonna lose a war.

Go to hell, I’m not here to entertain you.
Just walk away or face the showdown.
I won’t bow, I don’t care about the bleeding,
’cause our freedom is undefeated.
My soul on fire, burning desire.
Make no mistake, ’cause the stakes are getting higher.

Go to hell, I’m not here to entertain you.
I’m not here to entertain you.
I’m not here to entertain you.

Don’t be mistaken.
Your bloody time’s up.
This ain’t no game.
We’re not here to entertain you.

Pull your face like you didn’t know.
Like you cared and we’d buy your sorry story.
Who’s the fool?
Now you’re out of stones.
Yeah, you know.
Blame the sea, blame the moon for all.
Don’t you see, we’re the ones with the redemption.
Yeah, the time keeps turning round.

Now the time is gone, you’re going down.
You think you own me, but I wouldn’t be so sure.

Go to hell, I’m not here to entertain you.
Just walk away or face the showdown.
I won’t bow, I don’t care about the bleeding,
’cause our freedom is undefeated.
My soul on fire, burning desire.
Make no mistake, ’cause the stakes are getting higher.

Go to hell, I’m not here to entertain you.
I’m not here to entertain you.

In your mind, you deny all the suffering.
You’ve taken sides, ’cause you lost, it ain’t your fight now.
You don’t care anymore, ’cause you lost the crown now.
We’re not here to entertain you.

No, we’re not here to entertain you.
I’m not here to entertain you.

Don’t be mistaken.
Your bloody time’s up.
This ain’t no game.
We’re not here to entertain you.
