Epica Song Lyrics

Epica – Kingdom Of Heaven

Epica is a Dutch symphonic metal band, active since 2002.

Pioneering, big breakthroughs
Proceeded by the opposition
Hold in derision all that’s new
Afraid to lose their own esteem
Scorn shall be directed at the genius
Represses subtle theories of the light
To the questions of life
Quantum physics leads us to
Answers to the great taboos
We create the world around us
God is every living soul
Science, spirituality
Will have to meet along the way and
We need new drifts, another view
Expand our grip on the cryptic soul
Hope is more than a postponed disappointment
Non intellegens nil explicas
Videre nolens nil capies
Non intellegens nil explicas
Incognita non vides
Open your Sahasrara

Light creates us all
Pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful
Life delights us all
Light creates us all
Pride divides us all
Life is meaningful
The soul survives us all
Misled by science
Our wake up call
Conditioning cannot fool us ’till the end

Guide us safely
Through the gates of death

Nothing here will be the same
I’ll see the world through different eyes and
I was given clarity
And the wisdom I can’t deny
All that we can ever see
Until we leave this frail existence
Is just a shadow of reality
Death is not the final instance
It’s not your time
You have to go back… back!
Now!
No, no, I don’t want to return,
Please let me stay here, don’t make me go back
Go back, you’ve got work to do
We’re not alone, we are all one.
Nothing here will be the same
The smallest bit is as big as nature
Our limited capacities
Gives us trouble to comprehend
We are linked in every way
And we’re strong as our weakest fragment
Every word that we convey
Is an act with consequences

Light creates us all
Pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful
Life delight us all
Light creates us all
Pride divides us all
Life is meaningful
The soul survives us all
Greed will make us fall
Light will bind us all

Epica Song Lyrics

Epica – Sancta Terra

Epica is a Dutch symphonic metal band, active since 2002.

A place which I have searched a thousand times
To finally free myself
Forever wasn’t ever long enough
I will refrain

I feel a passion washing over me
To shed the skin I’m in
This evolution will empower me
Now truth begins

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I’m where I want to be

It’s a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you’ll see I’m right
It’s a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It’s a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It’s a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see

Take one step closer to the borderline
Where night and day unite
This mortal coil I’ve gone and left behind
On holy soil

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I’m where I want to be

It’s a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you’ll see I’m right
It’s a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It’s a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It’s a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see

You will not find me
I am safe in here
I am where I want to be
So leave me now in peace

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I’m where I want to be!

It’s a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you’ll see I’m right
It’s a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It’s a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It’s a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see

It’s a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you’ll see I’m right
It’s a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It’s a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It’s a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see

“Sancta Terra is about a person who dies and believes he is in heaven because of what he has done, but he is actually in hell and he feels good there, so that’s also basically where he belongs.” –Simone Simons (in an interview)

The generally accepted interpretation is that the song is talking of a suicide bomber, or suicide for a cause in general.
