Martyr of the Free Word Songtext
von Epica

Martyr of the Free Word Songtext

Speaking in degredation
A conversation can take a sudden turn
And reaching the point of violence
Because your silence left you without a hand to hold
Your past will lead you on to
Making a final judgement
Based on your bias
Will never bring you forward
Terror should never guide you
For even the fearful
Can take a beating in the end
Suspicion gets you nowhere

Those who denounce a way of life
Will stand alone
Left to atone their social blunders
If you gun down the messenger
You guarantee that he will be made
Into a saint
A martyr of the free word


I will say
I will say what I think
I will do
I will do what I say
When liberty seems out of reach
We′ll fight for our freedom of speech

Requiem aeternam dona eis
Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis

Missing a simple context
A mental weakness
Can throw you out of balance
Listen, respect each other
Then you'll discover
It mustn′t always end in hate
It's not too late for mercy

Those who denounce a way of life
Will stand alone
Left to atone their social blunders
If you gun down the messenger
You guarantee that he will be made
Into a saint
A martyr of the free word


I will say
I will say what I think
I will do
I will do what I say
When tolerance seems out of sight
We will fight
When liberty seems out of reach
We'll fight for our freedom of speech
