Never-Ending Story by GothicNarcissus Never-Ending Story by GothicNarcissus
"Armies have conquered and fallen in the end,
Kingdoms have risen then buried by sand.
The Earth is our mother, she gives and she takes,
She puts us to sleep and in her light we'll awake.
We'll all be forgotten, there's no endless fame,
But everything we do it's never in vain.

We're part of a story, part of a tale,
We're all on this journey, no one's to stay,
Wherever it's going, what is the way.

Forests, deserts, rivers, blue seas,
Mountains and valleys, nothing here stays.
While we think we witness, we are part of the scene.
This never-ending story where will it lead to?
The Earth is our mother, she gives and she takes,
But she is also a part, a part of the tale.

We're part of a story, part of a tale,
We're all on this journey, no one's to stay,
However is it going, what is the way.
We're part of a story, part of a tale,
Sometimes beautiful, sometimes insane,
No one remembers how it began...

[ Never-Ending Story - Within Temptation ]

Of course, given I was in Belgium for the Elements concert, I was quite in a Within Temptation mood and that huge, wonderful tree in the park Tuur and I were shooting in totally made the connection. So, here is my photo for Never-Ending Story (which WT played at the gig in a truly wonderful acoustic version).
Taken in Antwerp, Belgium.

I have seen the Birth of Galaxies,
And mourned the Death of a Star.
Watched as Realities have Ended;
Seen Civilizations scattered near and far.
I helped the Birthing of Worlds,
And gave a Universes Eulogy.
To me Forever is a second,
And Unending is temporary.
For Immortality is fleeting,
And Eternity a forgotten dream.
*_* those roots look kinda like hands/arms... or is it just me? -dies-

Yeah, they do really look like limbs of some sort! :)

Adoro quella canzone <3 Però sempre restando in tema Within Temptation, io su questa foto ci avrei visto bene anche In perfect harmony, non so.
Com'è stato il concerto?
GothicNarcissus Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Vero, un po' la richiama. :)

Il concerto è stato sensazionale. L'unica vera "pecca" (fra tante virgolette) che posso trovargli è che non abbiano suonato Restless (che data l'occasione ci stava), ma per il resto hanno fatto una cosa davvero magnifica, sia per la performance della band in sé, sia per gli effetti speciali, aggiunte sceniche, ospiti e performance aggiuntive. Sharon poi è stata sensazionale, vocalmente era una vera bomba! *__*

Cavolo, non avrei dovuto chiedertelo, mi hai fatta morire di invidia! xD

Pare (e sottolineo pare) che ne faranno un live DVD/CD. Non mi risulta sia stato comunicato nulla di ufficiale, ma fonti vicine dicono che le telecamere fossero in HD e non solo per proiettare tutto sugli schermi lì al concerto. Incrociamo le dita! *-*

Oddio, mi hai appena dato una notizia bellissima, spero che sia vero! *_*
GothicNarcissus Dec 8, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Lo spero anche io, è stato un grandissimo show e sarebbe un peccato se non l'avessero registrato. Già solo per Candles. Cioè, dai, è stata un eargasm assoluto! *w*

Questo me lo stai facendo apposta per farmi rosicare ancora di più però! xD
