Lyrics: Within Temptation – The Reckoning

[Verse 1: Sharon Den Adel]
As cold as stone, they march in darkness enslaving the young and killing their fathers.
But soon they’ll know, the path they’ve chosen has carved their faith in stone.

[Refrain: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times.
We rise against, we’ll always hold the line, of reckoning.

[Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
Red tears run down like a river.
Don’t close your eyes, it won’t disappear.
No fear, you wanna end the pain.
Don’t let go, don’t back down, hold the line.
We’ll bring the reckoning!
(We’ll bring the reckoning!)

[Refrain: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times.
We rise against, we’ll always hold the line, of reckoning.

[Verse 2: Jacoby Shaddix]
We’re all alone, walking in twilight.
The night has been long and so many’ve fallen.
Feel no remorse, light will be breaking.
Our freedom is worth it all!

[Refrain: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times.
We rise against, we’ll always hold the line, of reckoning.

[Chorus: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
Red tears run down like a river.
Don’t close your eyes, it won’t disappear.
No fear, you wanna end the pain.
Don’t let go, don’t back down, hold the line.
We’ll bring the reckoning!

[Bridge: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
I see your face.
Find piece of mind between the madness and the sadness and the fire burning.
The end of war, the great divine, we’ll see the day of reckoning.

[Outro: Sharon Den Adel and Jacoby Shaddix]
In blood and tears, a thousand times.
We rise against, we’ll always hold the line.
In blood and tears, a thousand times.
We rise against, we’ll always hold the line…
Of reckoning!
We’ll bring the reckoning!
In blood and tears, a thousand times.
We rise against, we’ll always hold the line, of reckoning!
