Die Songs - MP3 & Lyrics

Dark rivers

lying in bed awakened by a sound
almost can't be heard, perhaps the nighttalk of an owl
it feels so strange, can't sleep anymore
i feel nothing's gonna be as it was before

i walk the steps downstairs
and step outside the door
a cold breeze puts its arms around me
do i wanna know what i'm heading for?

dark rivers of the heart are pumping through my veins
i've got my father's blood locking up my brain
dark rivers of the heart - i've got to face the truth
i've got my father's blood - face the nightmare of my youth

down in the catacombs - blackness all around
there he stands like an inquisitor above this helpless girl who screams in pain without a sound
"it's ok what you are, what i am, what we are
the same dark river flows through both of our hearts

he leads my hand over her body
and he speaks in cautious tone

he puts the scalpel in my hand
i wanna know what i have done ...

dark rivers of the heart are pumping through my veins
i've got my father's blood locking up my brain
dark rivers of the heart - i've got to face the truth
i've got my father's blood - face the nightmare of my youth

there's my father again
the man i once called "dad"
the terrible truth i've opened up
i wished that i could have helped

dark rivers of the heart are pumping through my veins
i've got my father's blood locking up my brain
dark rivers of the heart - i've got to face the truth
i've got my father's blood - face the nightmare of my youth

dark rivers of the heart are pumping through my veins
but now i've faced the past and i got no more pain
