      Nightwish - The Poet And The Pendulum Música y Letra

      Part I: White Lands of Empathica
      
      The end.
      
      The songwriter's dead.
      The blade fell upon him
      Taking him to the white lands
      Of Empathica
      Of Innocence
      Empathica
      Innocence
      
      
      Part II: Home
      
      The dreamer and the wine
      Poet without a rhyme
      A widowed writer torn apart by chains of hell
      
      One last perfect verse
      Is still the same old song
      Oh Christ how I hate what I have become
      
      Take me home
      
      Get away, run away, fly away
      Lead me astray to dreamer's hideaway
      I cannot cry 'cause the shoulder cries more
      I cannot die, I, a whore for the cold world
      Forgive me
      I have but two faces
      One for the world
      One for God
      Save me
      I cannot cry 'cause the shoulder cries more
      I cannot die, I, a whore for the cold world
      
      My home was there and then
      Those meadows of heaven
      Adventure-filled days
      One with every smiling face
      
      Please, no more words
      Thoughts from a severed head
      No more praise
      Tell me once my heart goes right
      
      Take me home
      
      Get away, run away, fly away
      Lead me astray to dreamer's hideaway
      I cannot cry 'cause the shoulder cries more
      I cannot die, I, a whore for the cold world
      Forgive me
      I have but two faces
      One for the world
      One for God
      Save me
      I cannot cry 'cause the shoulder cries more
      I cannot die, I, a whore for the cold world
      
      
      Part III: The Pacific
      
      Sparkle my scenery
      With turquoise waterfall
      With beauty underneath
      The Ever Free
      
      Tuck me in beneath the blue
      Beneath the pain, beneath the rain
      Goodnight kiss for a child in time
      Swaying blade my lullaby
      
      On the shore we sat and hoped
      Under the same pale moon
      Whose guiding light chose you
      Chose you all
      
      I'm afraid. I'm so afraid.
      Being raped again, and again, and again.
      I know I will die alone.
      But loved.
      
      You live long enough to hear the sound of guns,
      long enough to find yourself screaming every night,
      long enough to see your friends betray you.
      
      For years I've been strapped unto this altar.
      Now I only have 3 minutes and counting.
      I just wish the tide would catch me first and give me a death I always longed for.
      
      
      Part IV: Dark Passion Play
      
      Second robber to the right of Christ
      Cut in half - infanticide
      The world will rejoice today
      As the crows feast on the rotting poet
      
      Everyone must bury their own
      No pack to bury the heart of stone
      Now he's home in hell, serves him well
      Slain by the bell, tolling for his farewell
      
      The morning dawned upon his altar
      Remains of the dark passion play
      Performed by his friends without shame
      Spitting on his grave as they came
      
      Get away, run away, fly away
      Lead me astray to dreamer's hideaway
      I cannot cry 'cause the shoulder cries more
      I cannot die, I, a whore for the cold world
      Forgive me
      I have but two faces
      One for the world
      One for God
      Save me
      I cannot cry 'cause the shoulder cries more
      I cannot die, I, a whore for the cold world
      
      "Today, in the year of our Lord 2005,
      Tuomas was called from the cares of the world.
      He stopped crying at the end of each beautiful day.
      The music he wrote had too long been without silence.
      He was found naked and dead,
      With a smile in his face, a pen and 1000 pages of erased text.
      
      Save me
      
      
      Part V: Mother & Father
      
      Be still, my son
      You're home
      Oh when did you become so cold?
      The blade will keep on descending
      All you need is to feel my love
      
      Search for beauty, find your shore
      Try to save them all, bleed no more
      You have such oceans within
      In the end
      I will always love you
      
      The beginning.
