Romanticide Lyrics - Nightwish



Review The Song (6)


God love and rest my soul
With this sun down, never ending
The feeling is gone, yet you ain't gonna see me fail
I am the decadence of your world,
I am an eider covered in oil
Happy hunting, you double-faced carnivore

Tell me why,
No heart to cry
Hang me high!

The music is dead, the amen is said
The kiss of faith is what I beg
A loving heart and soul for sale

Tell me why,
No heart to cry
Hang me high!

Leave me be,
And cease to tell me how to feel
To grieve, to shield myself from evil
Leave me be,
OD of lies is killing me
Romanticide...
Till love do me part!

See me ruined by my own creations

Leave me be,
And cease to tell me how to feel
To grieve, to shield myself from evil
Leave me be,
OD of lies is killing me
Romanticide...
Till love do me part!

Dead Boy's alive but without sense,
I need a near-death experience
Heart once bold,
Now turned to stone
Perfection, my messenger from Hell

Wine turns to water,
Campfires freeze,
Love letters burn,
Romance is lost
Lord, let me be wrong in this pain

Temporary pain, eternal shame
To take part in this Devil's chess game
Spit on me, let me go, get rid of me,
And try to survive your stupidity!

people like tuomas may not be as they seem or as they portray them selves | Reviewer: sean | 4/9/12

for all you fans fo a long time i have been the hrough an almost literal hell wih many life like my own sister who i had spent most of the seconds i have been alve playijg with talking with had turned satanist a few years ago and had a scitzophrenic meltdown that i was the only one who know hr long enough and deep enough to see her personality change like declinein hygiene infact the onl thing she cared to cpean was her hair, a decline in school grades which she had trouble in math bcause of dyslexia but she was fine in most then she progressively got to failing 5classes in a row through out the entire year the her attitude got mch worst where i had some physical fights with her were i had to use old wrestling techniques from my days in the sport to defende mysef when sometimes she resorted to actually picking up glass containers and hit met on the back of my head because she couldnt win. then itbl all went to hell when she hooked up with an ex narcotics dealer a convict online and started dating him online. she went behind my back got on ky computer to email him because she had been grounded for running away attitude and grades for over a year, but when i turned her in my dad found out her password after along talk with her and had all her emails forwarded to him and found out that she told her bf that she wanted to kill me and my parents for it. then as if i hadn't been throught eniugh pain watching her do this to herself my parents almade me make the ultimate desision on whether or not to kick her out. that is truly hell and i have ti live with my decision now. but the point is i intentionally hide my feeling and dark thoughts folrom the wjole would. a constant facade. tuomas went through almost the same exact thing with targa because she was his best friend they even went to school together and he had to witness her gradually change until she had become so self centered that she wanted to stop Tours in the us because it cost to much to get there and tuomas thank god said no she didnt care about the music anymore it was the money and then without telling him anything she announced to the world that once wouod be her last album. so now tuomas was charged with purging a loved one as i was so he made the decision to write An open letter to her meaning it would be on there website for the world to see the letter said the reasons why the band vited her out unanimously and hw he let her down the pain she put them all through and lastly that she could come back to them and they woupd welcome her with open arms. this is wher you get the song bye bye beautiful its entirely about her and the poet and the pendulum was influenced by all she had done making it the darkest song he has ever written that song he not only said he wished he would just die he actually wrote "on the year2005 tuomas was called from the cares of the world he stopped crying at the end ofeach beautiful day his music had been to long without silence . he was found naked and dead with a smile on his face then 1000 pages of erased text. save me." and if you dont believe she influenced this song "youve lived to here the sound of guns long enough to see your seof screaming at every word long enough to see YOUR FRIENDS BETRAY YOU." im trying to say from a guy who is going through so much mental pain it was impossible to find anyone who had been through the same amount of pain until i started analyzing the band so that i could understand the lyrics better and he may go through more than me right now and if he does have even close to this he will hide his pain in hs creations and i know for a fact he does but you will have t witness that for your self. dont take his music forgranted he writes the symphonic music too so he will hide stuf like in the poet and the pendulum gi to the second speach of the boy say tuomas was found naked and dead and listen to it with the bass turned up high you will hear the sound of edgar allen poes execution pendulum flying by and when the choir says save me you here the blades final pass that would cut him in half. he also hid
the sound f the pendulum after the first speech its the sound of something cranking if you dont understand the pendulum part of this song read edgar allen poes story the pit and the pendulum this is where he got the idea because nowhere in history has used a blade that with every passing swing it drops closer to it target on the alter ever so slowly to fuck with their mind until they gave up and cooperated to anything. dont take this peot for granted he is a genious and he lays so much infront of you that you would have to think the same as him to get less than half of it and you have to go through the same amount and similar situations that caused your pain to get maybe 30% of the rest of the shit he hides.

Grew on me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/13/11

I have to admit- the first time I heard this song, I hated it. There was almost nothing "symphonic" about it. Just a lot of heavy guitar. Then I read the lyrics. Mind-boggling. xD I never skip it when it comes on now. Plus having another chance to listen to Tarja's voice is a great plus!

"So he said" | Reviewer: yesry | 4/14/10

"Unfortunately, the best part of this song, though vocal, isn't in the lyrics. It's always sort of funny when people think it's cool to grunt "Uh!" in a song, but nothing beats metal riffs followed by a full choir grunting "UH!" (4:17)."

I totally agree lol!!!!!!!!

More canon for the Tuomas/Tarja shippers | Reviewer: Sterling | 12/12/07

I'm not one of them, but some people claim Tuomas was in love with Tarja. I don't believe it, but I can't deny that there's a lot of potential evidence there, in lyrics (especially in Dark Passion Play) and in other things he's said. This song, plus Ghost Love Score and some other Once songs, fall into place as well, assuming that by that time he had resigned himself to the fact that he'd never get Tarja. Just like with "Paul is dead," it's fun to look for the hints, even if you think they're just coincidences.

Unfortunately, the best part of this song, though vocal, isn't in the lyrics. It's always sort of funny when people think it's cool to grunt "Uh!" in a song, but nothing beats metal riffs followed by a full choir grunting "UH!" (4:17).

Great song | Reviewer: Simon | 11/3/07

I really like this song, its so cool with Tarja as lead singer, without the music focused solely on her voice as it was in some of the last songs they did with Tarja... This is a great song. Also The lyrics are awesome. Especially the chorus
"Leave me be,
And cease to tell me how to feel
To grieve, to shield myself from evil
Leave me be,
Ode of lies is killing me
Romanticide...
Till love do me part!" ¨

So awesome

I hope Dylan roels in his grave | Reviewer: Lukish | 2/14/07

I love this song I always have but never knew the lyrics. My boyfriend broke up with me about three weeks ago and now that I read these lyrics one line sticks out
"Temporary pain, eternal shame
To take part in this Devil's chess game
Spit on me, let go, get rid of me,
And try to survive your stupidity!"

Can you survive your stupidity Dylan? I know I can
