The Silent Force (2004-2006 Within Temptation Allbum) Track and Lyrics

| Comments

The Silent ForceT-Net… diwarnet inilah awalnya saya mendengarkan lagu dari album “The Silent Force” ini, T-Net jugalah warnet satu-satu-nya di Kediri yang kental dengan nuansa METAL karena semua operator-nya maniak musik-musik cadas (hii Ux, kang Ed) dan ada juga operator yang side job-nya adalah ngebuka kursus gitar (kadang-kadang jadi panitia konser punk juga klo ga salah) :D :) Gara-gara album ini juga, saya akhirnya menjadi penggemar aliran Symphonic/Gothic Metal dan mulai mencari-cari band dengan aliran sejenis yang akhirnya ketemu dengan Nightwish, Epica, Lacuna Coil, After Forever, Delain dan Xandria :) Sebenarnya masih banyak lagi sih band-band yang lain, cuma saya belum sempat dengerin musiknya :D :)

The Silent Force ini merupakan album ketiga dari Within Temptation yang di release pada tanggal 15 November 2004 oleh Gun Records. Album ini di release tiga versi yaitu basic version, standart version dan premium version, untuk premium version terdapat 2 bonus track :) Kabar lainnya adalah album ini meraih Gold status di negara Jerman, Belanda, Belgia dan Finlandia setelah 1 minggu di release. Dan pada tanggal 5 Agustus 2008, album “The Silent Force” beserta album “Mother Earth” di release di Amerika dibawah bendera Roadrunner Records.

Yang mengejutkan lagi, album The Silent Force ini (atau setidaknya judul album ini) terinspirasi dari judul buku pada awal abad ke 19 yang ditulis oleh penulis Belanda yang masa muda-nya dahulu pernah bersekolah di Batavia (sekarang Jakarta - Indonesia) bernama Louis Couperus. Pernyataan ini dikatakan sendiri oleh Sharon den Adel dalam sebuah wawancara dengan Buzznet yang membahas judul album, dan inilah kutipan Sharon den Adel tersebut :

“The title of our latest album ‘The Silent Force’ is actually taken from the title of a book from the beginning of the 19th century from a Dutch writer (who lived in Indonesia when he was young) called Louis Couperus. All the songs on this album are in some way related to that book (or at least the title).”

Total lagu yang terdapat pada album ini sebenar-nya hanya 11 lagu saja, sedangkan pada premium version terdapat tambahan 2 lagu yaitu A Dangerous Mind dan The Swan Song yang keseluruhan-nya menjadi 13 lagu seperti dibawah ini :

  1. Intro [Instrumental]

  2. See Who I Am Is it true what they say, Are we too blind to find the way? Fear of the unknown cloud our hearts today. Come into my world, See through my eyes. Try to understand, Don’t want to lose what we have

We’ve been dreaming But who can deny, It’s the best way of living Between the truth and the lies

See who I am, Break through the surface. Reach for my hand, Let’s show them that we can Free our minds and find a way. The world is in our hands, This is not the end.

Fear is withering the soul At the point of no return. We must be the change We wish to see. I’ll come into your world, See through your eyes. I’ll try to understand, Before we lose what we’ve had.

We just can’t stop believing ‘Cause we have to try. We can rise above Their truth and their lies.

See who I am, Break through the surface. Reach for my hand, Let’s show them that we can Free our minds and find a way. The world is in our hands,

See who I am, Break through the surface. Reach for my hand, Let’s show them that we can Free our minds and find a way. The world is in our hands, This is not the end.

Hear the silence Preaching my blame. Will our strength remain If their power reigns?

See who I am, Break through the surface. Reach for my hand, Let’s show them that we can Free our minds and find a way. The world is in our hands,

See who I am, Break through the surface. Reach for my hand, Let’s show them that we can Free our minds and find a way. The world is in our hands, This is not the end.

  1. Jillian (I’d Give My Heart) I’ve been dreaming for so long, to find a meaning to understand. The secret of life, why am I here to try again?

Will I always, will you always see the truth when it stares you in the face? Will I ever, will I never free myself by breaking these chains?

I’d give my heart, I’d give my soul. I’d turn it back, it’s my fault. Your destiny is forlorn, have to live till it’s undone. I’d give my heart, I’d give my soul. I’d turn it back and then at last I’ll be on my way.

I’ve been living for so long, many seasons have passed me by. I’ve seen kingdoms through ages rise and fall, I’ve seen it all.

I’ve seen the horror, I’ve seen the wonders happening just in front of my eyes. Will I ever, will I never free myself by making it right?

I’d give my heart, I’d give my soul. I’d turn it back, it’s my fault. Your destiny is forlorn, have to live till it’s undone. I’d give my heart, I’d give my soul. I’d turn it back and then at last I’ll be on my way.

Jillian our dream ended long ago. All our stories and all our glory I held so dear. We won’t be together for ever and ever, no more tears. I’ll always be here until the end. Jillian, no more tears Jillian, no more tears

I’d give my heart, I’d give my soul. I’d turn it back, it’s my fault. Your destiny is forlorn, have to live till it’s undone. I’d give my heart, I’d give my soul. I’d turn it back and then at last I’ll be on my way.

  1. Stand My Ground I can see when you stay low nothing happens Does it feel right?

Late at night things I thought I’d put behind me haunt my mind

I just know there’s no escape now once it’s set its eyes on you but I won’t run, have to stare it in the eye

Stand my ground, I won’t give in No more denying, I gotta face it Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside If I don’t make it, someone else will Stand My Ground

It’s all around getting stronger, coming closer into my world

I can feel that it’s time for me to face it can I take it?

Though this might just be the ending of the life I held so dear but I won’t run, there’s no turning back from here

Stand my ground, I won’t give in No more denying, I gotta face it Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside If I don’t make it, someone else will Stand My Ground

All I know for sure is I’m trying I will always stand my ground

Stand my ground, I won’t give in (I won’t give in) I won’t give up (I won’t give up) no more denying, I got to face it won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside if I don’t make it, someone else will

Stand my ground, I won’t give in No more denying, I gotta face it Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside If I don’t make it, someone else will Stand My Ground.

  1. Pale The world seems not the same, Though I know nothing has changed. It’s all my state of mind, I can’t leave it all behind. Have to stand up to be stronger.

Have to try to break free From the thoughts in my mind. Use the time that I have, I can’t say goodbye, Have to make it right. Have to fight, cause I know In the end it’s worthwhile, That the pain that I feel slowly fades away. It will be alright.

I know, should realize Time is precious, it is worthwhile. Despite how I feel inside, Have to trust it’ll be all right. Have to stand up to be stronger.

I have to try to break free From the thoughts in my mind. Use the time that I have, I can’t say goodbye, Have to make it right. Have to fight, cause I know In the end it’s worthwhile, That the pain that I feel slowly fades away. It will be all right.

Oh, this night is too long. Have no strength to go on. No more pain, I’m floating away. Through the mist see the face Of an angel, who calls my name. I remember you’re the reason I have to stay.

Have to try to break free From the thoughts in my mind. Use the time that I have, I can’t say goodbye, Have to make it right. Have to fight, cause I know In the end it’s worthwhile, That the pain that I feel slowly fades away. It will be alright.

  1. Forsaken Now the day has come We are forsaken this time

We lived our lives in our paradise, As gods we shaped the world around No borderlines we’d stay behind, Though balance is something fragile

While we thought we were gaining, We’d turn back the tide, it still slips away Our time has run out, our future has doubt, There’s no more escape

Now the day has come, We are forsaken, There’s no time anymore Life will pass us by, We are forsaken, We’re the last of our kind

The sacrifice was much too high, Our greed just made us all go blind We tried to hide what we feared inside Today is the end of tomorrow

As the sea started rising, The land that we conquered just washed away Although we all have tried to turn back the tide, It was all in vain

Now the day has come, We are forsaken, There’s no time anymore Life will pass us by, we are forsaken, Only ruins stay behind

Now the day has come We are forsaken this time

Now the day has come, We are forsaken, There’s no time anymore

Now the day has come The day has come The day has come.

  1. Angels Sparkling angel I believe You were my savior in my time of need. Blinded by faith I couldn’t hear All the whispers, the warnings so clear. I see the angels, I’ll lead them to your door. There’s no escape now, No mercy no more. No remorse cause I still remember

The smile when you tore me apart. You took my heart, Deceived me right from the start. You showed me dreams, I wished they’d turn into real. You broke a promise and made me realize. It was all just a lie.

Sparkling angel, I couldn’t see Your dark intentions, your feelings for me. Fallen angel, tell me why? What is the reason, the thorn in your eye? I see the angels, I’ll lead them to your door There’s no escape now No mercy no more No remorse cause I still remember

The smile when you tore me apart You took my heart, Deceived me right from the start. You showed me dreams, I wished they’d turn into real. You broke a promise and made me realize. It was all just a lie. Could have been forever. Now we have reached the end.

This world may have failed you, It doesn’t give you reason why. You could have chosen a different path in life.

The smile when you tore me apart. You took my heart, Deceived me right from the start. You showed me dreams, I wished they’d turn into real. You broke a promise and made me realize. It was all just a lie. Could have been forever. Now we have reached the end.

  1. Memories In this world you tried, Not leaving me alone behind. There’s no other way, I pray to the gods let him stay. The memories ease the pain inside, And now I know why.

All of my memories keep you near. In silent moments, Imagining you here. All of my memories keep you near, In silent whispers, by silent tears

Made me promise I’d try, To find my way back in this life. Hope there is a way, To give me a sign you’re okay. Reminds me again it’s worth it all, So I can go home.

All of my memories keep you near. In silent moments, Imagining you here. All of my memories keep you near. In silent whispers, by silent tears.

Together in all these memories, I see your smile. All of the memories I hold dear. Darling you know I’ll love you, Til the end of time.

All of my memories keep you near In silent moments, Imagining you here. All of my memories keep you near, In silent whispers, by silent tears.

All of my memories…

  1. Aquarius I hear your whispers break the silence and it calms me down. A taste on my lips, your salty kisses.

They say I’m seeking out the danger. That one day you won’t let me go. I’ll drown, you’ll take me down.

Chorus: I need you Aquarius, enchanted I will have to stay. I feel you Aquarius, cause you the sea set me free. You call to me Aquarius. You call to me, you set me free.

I relinquish to your powers. From your grasp, I just can’t hide. I missed the danger I had to conquer. You made me feel alive.

They say I have to be aware, that one day you won’t let me go. I’ll drown, you’ll take me down.

I need you Aquarius, enchanted I will have to stay. I feel you Aquarius, cause you the sea set me free. You call to me Aquarius.

I long for you, Aquarius. I need to be with you again. I fear you, Aquarius My destiny till the end.

I need you Aquarius, enchanted I will have to stay I feel you Aquarius cause you the sea set me free.

  1. . It’s the Fear It waits for the day I will let it out. To give it a reason, to give it its might.

I fear who I am becoming, I feel that I am losing the struggle within. I can no longer restrain it, My strength it is fading, I have to give in.

It’s the fear Fear of the dark It’s growing inside of me, That one day will come to life. Have to save To save my beloved, There is no escape, Because my faith is horror and doom.

Hold down your head now, Just let me pass by. Don’t feed my fear, If you don’t want it out.

I fear who I am becoming, I feel that I am losing all beauty within. I can no longer restrain it, My strength is fading. I have to give in.

It’s the fear Fear of the dark It’s growing inside of me, That one day will come to life. Have to save To save my beloved, There is no escape, Because my faith is horror and doom.

Long ago it came to me And ever since that day, Infected with its rage But it ends today.

It’s the fear Fear of the dark It’s growing inside of me, That one day will come to life. Have to save To save my beloved, There is no escape, Because my faith is horror and doom.

  1. . Somewhere Lost in the darkness, hoping for a sign Instead there is only silence, Can’t you hear my screams? Never stop hoping, Need to know where you are But one thing’s for sure, You’re always in my heart

I’ll find you somewhere I’ll keep on trying until my dying day I just need to know whatever has happened, The truth will free my soul

Lost in the darkness, try to find your way home I want to embrace you and never let you go Almost hope you’re in heaven so no one can hurt your soul Living in agony ‘cause I just do not know Where you are

I’ll find you somewhere I’ll keep on trying until my dying day I just need to know whatever’s happened, The truth will free my soul

Wherever you are, I won’t stop searching Whatever it takes me to go

I’ll find you somewhere I’ll keep on trying until my dying day I just need to know whatever’s happened, The truth will free my soul

  1. . A Dangerous Mind I’m searching for answers Cause something is not right. I follow the signs, I’m close to the fire.

I fear that soon you’ll reveal Your dangerous mind.

It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. I fear your smile and the promise inside. It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. I fear your presence, I’m frozen inside.

I’m searching for answers Not questioned before. The curse of awareness, There’s no peace of mind. As your true colors show A dangerous sign.

It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. I see the truth that you’ve buried inside. It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. There is no mercy, just anger I find.

I just have to know, while I still have time. Do I have to run, or hide away from you?

It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. I see the truth that you’ve buried inside. It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. There is no mercy, just anger I find.

It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. I see the truth that you’ve buried inside. It’s in your eyes, what’s on your mind. There is no mercy, just anger I find. I find

  1. . The Swan Song Winter has come for me, can’t carry on. The chains to my life are strong but soon they’ll be gone. I’ll spread my wings one more time.

Is it a dream? All the ones I have loved calling out my name. The sun warms my face. All the days of my life, I see them passing me by.

In my heart I know I can let go. In the end I will find some peace inside. New wings are growing tonight.

Is it a dream? All the ones I have loved calling out my name. The sun warms my face. All the days of my life, I see them passing me by.

As I am soaring I’m one with the wind. I am longing to see you again, it’s been so long. We will be together again.

Is it a dream? All the ones I have loved calling out my name. The sun warms my face. All the days of my life, I see them passing me by.
