100 Days of Happiness: Day #38/ Review of Within Temptation's Hydra

Day #38:



I think it was Josette that told me about Within Temptation back in 2004. I remember downloading the band on Limewire and loving them. I guess I forgot about them for awhile until last week Louis posted that he loved the new album. I bought it because I find it cheaper to buy the physical CD and because I still use CD players (and love having the art). According to Wikipedia, Hyrdra synopsis. Huh, so it was brand (brand) new when I purchased it, sweet! I'm going to review disk 1 as I only had time for that today.

Dangerous: I loved the lyrics of this piece as well as the metal set up. I could really relate to this song and I just loved their guitar, bass and drum playing.
Favorite lyrics: I know I won't change, I have tried
Was feeling so caged, hands tied
I can't find anything feeling so right, it's blinding hope
And We Run: I know I posted this last week, but I love, LOVE this song. I love how Xzibit appears in this song and it's a surprising pairing since XZibit is rap. It definitely works though! As Louis said, XZibit sounds epic. :D
Favorite lyrics: Okay, it's the whole song.

 It burns into your heart, the darkness that you fear. 
You were never free, and you never realized. 
And love, is a word you've never heard. 
Your heart is cold cause it burns, the desire to leave the mind.

Take your breath til nothing's left. 
Stars of life upon your chest. 
And I know you wherever you go.

And we run and we don't look back. 
And we run til we've had enough. 
And we run, tell me how to run. 
And we run, til we break down. 
And we run til we fall apart. 
And we run til we've had enough.

Don't blink, you'll miss it. 
Lift up your head. We gotta get gone. 
Yeah, we outta here. 
Don't blink, you'll miss it. 
Lift up your head. 
Too late, we gone. 
Yeah, we outta here.

And we run, for this killing love. 
And we run, tell me how it's enough. 
And we run, far ahead we go.

I'ma break these chains, ran through the rain. 
Never looked back, never quit, worked through the pain. 
This blood in my veins run cold when I hate. 
Give enough to keep sane but I never lose hope. 
This is my time now, no time for tears to celebrate. 
Put it in the air right now. 
Never back down, you'll never wear my crown 
cause it weighs too much and I crush every motherf***ng thing I touch. 
This is what I've never loved so much. 
Get involved what's the worst stand up. 
Here my mic before I ever get far.
Man in lights, you lost all my trust. 
Now it's time to face all of us. 
Get in line just to spar with us. 
And it feels so far from us, just take my hand and run.

And we run, for this killing love. 
And we run, tell me how it's enough. 
And we run, til we never don. 
And we run til we fall apart. 
And we run, til it's enough.

Yeah, we out of here.

Don't blink, you'll miss it. 
Lift up your head. 
We gotta get gone. 
Yeah, we outta here. 
Don't blink, you'll miss it. 
Lift up your head. 
Too late, we gone. 
Yeah, we outta here.

And we run, for this killing love. 
And we run, tell me how it's enough. 
And we run, til we never don. 
And we run til we fall apart. 
And we run, til it's enough.

Don't blink, you'll miss it. 
Lift up your head. 
We gotta get gone. 
Yeah, we outta here. 
Don't blink, you'll miss it. 
Lift up your head. 
Too late, we gone. 
Yeah, we outta here.


Silver Moonlight: Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
Favorite lyrics: It's where I wanna be
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free
In the silver moonlight
I can't breathe

    1. They're pretty solid. I think they're Swedish or at least from around that area. I forget the songs I downloaded in 2004, but I definitely recommend this album. :)
