"Where Will You Go" "Even in Death"

"Field of Innocence" is the sixth track on Origin.

BackgroundEdit

This song was based on a poem written by Ben Moody. He's also reading it in the background.

The female vocal ensemble is composed of Suvi Petrajajvri, Sara Moore, Catherine Harris, and Samantha Strong.

The Latin chant repeated throughout the song was not written by Evanescence. It is a snippet from the song "Morning Hymn" from the Preludium of the Broadway version of Sound of Music. The Latin is translated to English as:

O Jesus, King most wonderful!

Thou Conqueror reknowned!

Thou Sweetness most ineffable!

in whom all joys are found!

LyricsEdit

[Iesu, Rex amirabilis]

I still remember the world from the eyes of a child
Slowly those feelings were clouded by what I know now

Where has my heart gone? An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I, I want to go back to believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

Where has my heart gone? Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I, I want to go back to believing in everything

[Iesu, Rex amirabiliset triumphator nobilis dulcedo ineffabilis totus desiderabilis]

As the years pass by before my face [totus desiderabilis]
As wars rage before me, finding myself in these last days of existence

This parasite inside me I forced it out in the darkness of the storm [Iesu, Rex amirabilis]

Lies an evil, but it's me

Where has my heart gone? An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I, I want to go back to believing in everything

Oh, where, where has my heart gone? Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I, I want to go back to believing in everything

I still remember

[Iesu, Rex amirabilis]
