"After Forever Epica Cries for the Moon"

Epica live at "Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2006". Photo authored by Antti Leväsaari, who released [on July 1st, 2006] under [the license of] Public Domain.

The mix between Death Metal guitarist, Mark Jansen, and the lyrical mezzo-soprano, Simone Simons, especially the mix of their voices, Mark with his diabolic voice and Simone with her angelical voice, forms the core of this peculiar Dutch Symphonic Metal band called Epica. The songs, "Façade of Reality" and "Crying for the Moon" have gained some notoriety because its lyrics, some in English, some in Latin, are controversial but pertaining to this neodark age.

My take is that the members of "Epica" are portraying with these songs the feelings of many people who are standing against religious fanaticism and political fanatic indoctrination. Factors that are causing our current civilized world to be in a state of tears. Some politicians, are requesting thousand of millions of dollars for more security, more cameras, more censors, more forces of order, and more weapons against weapons of mass destruction; especially, here in NYC, all the while people and bands like "Epica" are claiming for just more "common sense". Anyway, let's listen this song in a "Youtube" format, from "Epica" with open mind and once again try to follow your common sense...

Cry for the Moon

Follow your common sense
You cannot hide yourself
behind a fairytale forever and ever
Only by revealing the hole truth can we disclose
The soul of this bulwark forever and ever
Forever and ever

Indoctrinated minds so very often
Contain sick thoughts
And commit most of the evil they preach against

Don't try to convince me with messages from God
You accuse us of sins committed by yourselves
It's easy to condemn without looking in the mirror
Behind the scenes opens reality

Eternal silence cries out for justice
Forgiveness is not for sale
Nor is the will to forget

Virginity has been stolen at very young ages
And the extinguisher loses it's immunity
Morbid abuse of power in the garden of eden
Where the apple gets a youthful face [Read Mike Bloomberg abusing NYC]

You can't go on hiding yourself
Behind old fashioned fairy tales
And keep washing your hands in innocence [Vote for Bill Thompson]
