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!
