Verse 1

A blood filled rose beneath a blanket of snow,

Awaits the spring when the Tree of Hope will grow,

And the beautiful birds will sing the dirge

For the lost winter as the sun will emerge.

Pre chorus 1

Under the spell of icy breath of Demeter,

The rose stays frozen but refuses to wither.

Chorus

Hold on to the empathy

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

That's deep inside your soul.

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

No one can ever steal that,

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

Winter can't turn you cold.

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

Verse 2

A blood filled rose lost in restless slumber

Will be awakened the day her deepest scar

Is caressed by the gentle lips of courage,

And she feels her heart beat inside her ribcage.

Pre chorus 2

The beasts can crush her under the weight of their scorn,

But before they pluck her, she'll sting them with her thorns.

Chorus

Hold on to the empathy

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

That's deep inside your soul.

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

No one can ever steal that,

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

Winter can't turn you cold.

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

(Instrumental solo)

Bridge

And at last her sapphire eyes

Open against the blue sky

That erases all the past lies.

And she feels alive once again,

Free from all sorrow and pain

That had flowed so long through her veins.

The fragrance of the life inside her bewitches spectators.

Chorus

Hold on to the empathy

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

That's deep inside your soul.

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

No one can ever steal that,

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)

Winter can't turn you cold.

(Choir: Fight for what's right,

Through the dark nights,

When struck with blight,

Just hold on tight.)
