Serious question, I'm really wondering now

Don't call me crazy, please. I just  put down my thoughts


Well....  I don't know if any of you has heard of Within Temptation but... I am a huge fan and they recently signed with no one else but SONY and their new album is due to be released on March 25 2011.

From their official facebook:

Nothing strange so far, but someone just leaked the songs yesterday and I just remained as I were at dentist. Besides that the album is something I've never listened before at them, the sound, it's absolutelly amazing, I got shivers... there's  the message. I am trying to keep my head cold and not become paranoic, I'm really doing my best,  but for god's sake... the message is mindblowing  complex and strange...  all is about death and being  all in your head, being buried alive, "but i know you'll understand all that is keeping me here" this sort of things. I thought to share here, as I doubt anyone would pay attention so far at them related to this situation of Michael. I found the message very strange even before I knew they signed with SONY for it. Don't know what to think, would you want to throw an ear at the songs too? I'm so confused.

some of their new lyrics:

I’ve been left all alone like a damn criminal, I’ve praying for help cause i can’t take it all, I’m not done...It’s not over. Now I’m far in this war, since the day, how we fall, and then desperately, all alone, through it all,  but I’m lost...I’m so damn lost. Oh, I wish it was over, and I wish you were here, still I’m holding the time.

In the dream, all the night, I can see through your eyes, as I’m laying away I’m still here in the cries, how it hurts....Hurts me so bad. And I’m wondering why [...] cause I lost all my faith in this damn inner strike, how it’s sad...It’s so damn sad

Closer to insanity it burries  me alive, where's the life we once had, it cannot be denied.
Run away, you hide away to the other side of the universe where you're safe from all that haunts you down"


Some may call it a curse
a life like mine
but others, a blessing
it's certainly a lonely life
but a fullfilling one and the best
it's my cross to bear
and I'll bear it gladly
someone has to take a stand against evil
why should it not be me

Very interesting lyrics, yes I know Within Temptation, good band, not easy to say as an Evanescence fan as they're considered rivals by many, but credit where it's due.  Here's to the rock chicks! :D

In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream.  And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.

I sawear I don't know if there's any connection, but the lyrics struck me so bad..  and now I see that they signed with SONY. I try to keep my head cold and objectively judge the message of the entire album.
For example....

Stairway to the skies

Seven seconds still arise
I can’t believe I’m still alive
And heaven was waiting for me
I thought this would be the end
But I know you’ll understand
All that is keeping me here


I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is calling down from heaven to take me
I reach out but they can’t fade away
Whenever you call for me
There is one coming one step behind

Senses tell me I have changed
But one thing still remains
I’m […] in the hate still aching

I slowly start to realize
We won’t be alive
We still have too much […] through

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is calling down from heaven to take me
I reach out but they can’t fade away
Whenever you call for me
There is one coming one step behind

Is it a curse or a virtue?
Heaven is blinded by […]
[…]
My soul is at stake
[…] from the stairways to the skies
In the end…
