Avalanche… from Epica’s new album, Requiem for the Indifferent.

Finally, a song that I really, really love since the first time I heard it. The melody, the lyrics… it touched the bottom of my heart. 

Music: Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye & Simone Simons.

Lyrics: Simone Simons.

Feels like living in a dream
From which I cannot wake
Voices leading me astray
Cannot hide

Feels like I am growing weaker
I can’t deny
Whatever’s hurting me
Won’t leave me
Here at ease
And I can see your secrecy
Has gone away

In another time
You left me
For someone else
Who’d serve your every needs
And set your
World apart
The strain is now
Unbearable, 
Turned me to stone

For all the hardship in my way
Hold on, move on

Hear me! 
How hide your face while you carry on ‘till the grief comes
Save your soul from the downfall

To give and take was not an option
You have to run and sweep it all away
Leave not a heart to mend
That day I cast so far behind, I’m moving on

For all the stones thrown in my face
Hold on, move on

See me! 
Now hide your face while
You carry on ‘till the grief comes
Save your soul from the downfall

Feels like living in a dream from which I cannot wake
I don’t wanna hide
They are tearing me apart
You cannot pray for laughter
You cannot wake

Degenerate the love and hate
We should always ever keep in mind
Our tragedy’s not far behind
Kneeling in disaster

Through all the doubt I can’t allay
Hold on, move on
Now
As it was meant to be
Suffering’s a travesty

Obliterate our past mistakes
We should never lose sight or well find
A travesty renewed in time
Chasing ever faster

Feels like living in a dream from which I cannot wake
I don’t wanna hide
They are tearing me apart
You cannot pray for laughter
I cannot decide
I cannot wake
I cannot pray

Feels like living in a dream
From which I cannot wake
Voices leading me astray
Cannot pray

Storm the Sorrow, finally!!!

Lyrics:

Along the way I find myself
To be confined within me
My place where all the others mind to interfere

To press the meaning of it all
To overcome my limits
And dance away from any void and empty tasks

The storm is wild
The storm is high
I can’t survive the storm

Believe yourselves and look away
From all the thrive within you
Leave all your worries at the door
And drift away

I’ve tried to appear into the core
But could not storm the sorrow
My hollow heart has bled me dry, left me to stray

Another time
Without a chance
Condemned me wrong
Send me to heaven

Intertwine the lines
And swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we’re living
Dreamer as it need reweaving

In the memories of the deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another way of you led tears when someone had betrayed

No time to ever go to waste
It’s not that complicated
You’re free to live your life at ease
No more restrain

No heat for shadows on your way
That try to steal your laughter
Your lights will drive them all away
Be confident

Will I refrain
Can I repent
Will you be there
Your eyes have paced
Where I’m alone in ire

Intertwine the lines
And swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we’re living
Dreamer as it need reweaving

In the memories of the deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another way of you led tears when someone had betrayed

Title new Epica album released:

Epica’s 5th full-length album which will be released on the 9th of March 2012 by Nuclear Blast will be called:

REQUIEM FOR THE INDIFFERENT

This title refers to the end of an era. Mankind can no longer stick their head in the sand for the things that are happening around us. We are facing many challenges. There is an enormous tension between different religions and cultures, wars, natural disasters and a huge financial crisis, which is getting out of control. More than ever we will need each other to overcome these problems. As we are all connected; the universe, earth, nature, animals and human beings, this period in time will be the prelude to the end for those who still don’t want to, or simply won’t see it. A REQUIEM FOR THE INDIFFERENT but also a possibility for a new beginning with great new chances! 

Epica will present this album to the public on the 16th of March 2012, in 013, Tilburg (NL) tickets are still available but are going out fast! Be sure to get your tickets in time:
