Within Temptation Our Solemn Hour Lyrics

("I speak to you for the first time as Prime Minister in a solemn hour for the life of our country, of our empire, of our allies, and, above all, of the cause of Freedom.")

Sanctus Es Spiritus redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Es Spiritus insanity is all around us
Sanctus Es Spiritus! Sanctus Es Spiritus! Sanctus Es Spiritus!

In my darkest hours I could not foresee
That the tide could turn so fast to this degree
Can't believe my eyes
How can you be so blind?
Is the heart of stone, no empathy inside?
Time keeps on slipping away and we haven't learned
So in the end now what have we gained?

Sanctus Es Spiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Es Spiritus, insanity is all around us
Sanctus Es Spiritus, is this what we deserve,
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony?

Are they themselves to blame, the misery, the pain?
Didn't we let go, allowed it, let it grow?
If we can't restrain the beast which dwells inside
It will find it's way somehow, somewhere in time
Will we remember all of the suffering
Cause if we fail it will be in vain

Sanctus Es Spiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Es Spiritus, insanity is all around us
Sanctus Es Spiritus, is this what we deserve,
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony

("A tremendous battle is raging in France and Flanders. The Germans, by a remarkable combination of air bombing and heavily armored tanks, have broken through the French defenses north of the Maginot Line, and strong columns of their armored vehicles are ravaging the open country, which for the first day or two was without defenders. They have penetrated deeply and spread alarm and confusion in their track.")

Sanctus Es Spiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Es Spiritus, insanity is all around us
Sanctus Es Spiritus, is this what we deserve,
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony!

Sanctus Es Spiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour (Solem hour!)
Sanctus Es Spiritus, insanity is all around us (All around us!)
Sanctus Es Spiritus, is this what we deserve,
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony
