Xandria - Blood On My Hands Lyrics




Silver stars in my black night
Cold as ice but beautiful
Wandering through broken shadows
The river of life is all filled with sins
The water I drink is the blood on my hands

No-one sees how I'm burning
No-one feels this yearning
So come taste this black poison - You never reach this heart
And forgive my obsession - Something tears me apart
From myself

Silver stars in my black night
Cold as ice but beautiful
Wandering through broken shadows
The river of life is all filled with sins
The water I drink is the blood on my hands

Waiting for my damnation - your prosecutor's here
In my own accusation - you can't run from yourself
Oh we're living these lies all alone
So come on and throw the stone

Silver stars in my black night
Cold as ice but beautiful
Wandering through broken shadows
The river of life is all filled with sins
The water I drink is the blood on my hands

Pray to the gods I have sold in this game of live and let die
Pray for my soul in this world to deliver me from my sins
Pray...

All that's been and all I see now
Only a ghost of what I called...

Silver stars in my black night
Cold as ice but beautiful
Wandering through broken shadows
The river of life is all filled with sins
The water I drink is the blood on my hands

Xandria Blood On My Hands Comments
  1. Campânula

    Que letra, que sinfonia espetacular e que vocal poderoso! Com certeza uma das melhores do Xandria!

  2. Campânula

    Thank you for this incridible symphony!

    Tightening the wounds, it's ridiculous.
    You feel the pain and perpetuate it,
    you hate them and love them for being there.
    Your wounds heal and motivate you.
    His tears feed him,
    You say you'll wander through dark places until the end of time.
    You want to suffer, because that is your vice.
    I'm talking about me, I'm talking about you.
    Let's get lost, what's left?
    The fire will surround us, the blood will be beautiful to us.
    A toast to our lovely addiction, our pain forever and ever

    Manuela is the closest thing to Tarja Turunen, in this reality i mean:D although i must say, in 2018 i was at Epica's gig, and my god, Simone Simons is almost as good as Manuela and Tarja, she made such a long way, that's my girl:D

    Anders Midnatt

    When Tarja's voice seems ethereal, Simone shines with sunrays, Manuela channels some cosmic frost from the very outskirts of the Solar system.

  4. Javier Chavarri Soria

    Supersong

  5. David McLeod

    All these great songs and yet "babymetal" is the group from this genre that gets all the attention...

    Damn weebs

    Myth Talks

    babymetal is not symphonic metal lol

  6. Kimberley George

    Manuela and Tarja should do song together. Imagine, how powerful that would be..

    FOTON FOREVER

    I would add Attila Dorn from powerwolf into the mix aswell. Easy 3 best voices in Earth.

  7. Александр Радченко

    Сильная вещь...

  8. Миша Корсуков

    Excellent album

  9. Mario D. Zmaj

    121k views, and that yomama song has 1 billion -> humans, they don't know whats good

    Oguzhan çetin

    Totaly agree.

  10. Anders Midnatt

    This song is like a gaze into the dawn of our Universe, when the first star has lit the ice-cold space with its blazing blue light...

  11. Javier Yus

    esta canción es mi alma!!!

  12. Snakes-and-coffee Abnormal

    Awesome song awesome voice awesome all the way

  13. Law Williams

    I am so glad I found this group. Thank you random list of female metal bands I found on the internet xD

    InsaniA

    @Law Williams lol yeah !

    Omari Thompson

    +Law Williams Too  bad she only lasted for one album. I want more Manuella.

    Steven G

    Is that her name?

    InsaniA

    @Steven G Manuela Kraller

    Steven G

    @LeoPrieto27 Thanks.

  14. Muffin Gal

    I cant quite catch the meaning of the song, but its sounds epic!!! :D

    cesc holopainen

    I think it's about a witch who's going to be drowned in a river.

    Eva Arya Elda

    For me it's about the sinful nature of mankind and that we are somehow beautiful despite all we've done in our past. We are broken and formed by the things we did and things that were done to us. We're not perfect and often we feel that struggle deep inside us. We want to be a better version of ourselves, but are stuck inside our own failures and that hurts. We feel guilty for who we are and we feel worthless sometimes. But we keep fighting. There's a special kind of beauty to broken things. I guess the song is about the beauty of the unperfect human soul. But I'm just taking a guess here.

    SerenitysCall

    @Eva Arya Elda I have to second that... always thought about it similar to that...

  15. dragonkingofthestars

    Holy crud, I just finished bioshock infinite and this song just reminds me so much of that game!

    Carolyn

    I agree completely! XD

  16. Miguel Lucena

    Manuela could be taken for Nightwish rather than Floor. Manuela keeps her voice mor stable in higher tones.. She can perfectly sing songs from first albuns of Nightwish like Stargazers, Deep Silent Complete, Pharaoh Sails to Orion and others.. That would be a great idea.

    Hromnice Nyarlathotepová

    @Epictemptation7 I heard Floor's live version and Tarja's live version (use google). Tarja was better in From Wishes To Eternity era, now she sounds weird.

    Epictemptation7

    @Hromnice Nyarlathotepová Her voice type changed. She was a mezzo in her years with NW.

    Hromnice Nyarlathotepová

    @Epictemptation7 I know, and that's why I don't listen Tarja now.

    Elias

    nightwish are not using operatic Style on Their songs from many years..I saw floor sing stargazers live and she's amazing! she is the best chioice for nightwish modern Style!

  17. Doctum Daemonium

    RIP Xandria...

    Anders Midnatt

    No way. They're now even greater than before, as they have got "Dark Floor Jansen" (Dianne van Giersbergen) to substitute "Dark Tarja Turunen" (Manuela Kraller)!

    kemp sarah

    Rip oO are you serious, they sound way more epic then with their first Singer. and Van Giersbergen is a great replacement for Manuela Kraller, more then worthy. I'd say

    Gabe Lopez

    +Doctum Daemonium Pfffft... Diane loses no ground to Manuela, at all. In fact, I'd say her (Diane's) vocal range is slightly wider than Manuela's. Sure, Manu has more of a queen-ish vibe to her style, but Diane's Princess-type charm is lovable as well.

  18. Nightykk

    How I wish Nightwish had gotten Manuela as their new singer.

    Ety04

    She would not have accepted it. If she couldn't handle the pressure of a band like Xandria, it's obvious she would never think of a bigger one like Nightwish.

    Miguel Lucena

    Manuela could be taken for Nightwish rather than Floor. Manuela keeps her voice mor stable in higher tones.. She can perfectly sing songs from first albuns of Nightwish like Stargazers, Deep Silent Complete, Pharaoh Sails to Orion and others.. That would be a great idea

    Kornatoski

    Agreed! ... as much as I like FJ sometimes she seems to lose control and on occasion seems to scream rather than sing ..and apologies for arriving late

  19. josep maria bergadà cerdà

    fantastica !!!

  20. Dawn Storme

    that voice, so beautiful. The power of this song is immense :D

  21. Boris Penkov

    Great song!

  22. Basil II Macedonia

    Manuela is gorgeous and a fantastic singer.

  23. Sinner Claws

    Seems like we have similar interests friend, I too came for inspiration for a book I'm writing, good luck with yours! :)

  24. Marcus Knutsson

    Who doesn't?

  25. want succ

    I just had an orgasm.

  26. Vikram Shankar Music

    Lol for some reason the chorus to this song reminds me of Because The Night.. great song though! Truly epic.

  27. Tommaso Moretti

    Cold as Ice but... Beautiful !!!!

  28. bimtav

    Those lyrics. Xandria just got 300% better with this new sound.

  29. jt083198

    Xandria is the BEST. I have the biggest crush on Manuela!

  30. šišmišolovka

    Beautiful ^^

  31. babybop114
