Death is the winner in any war
Nothing noble in dying for your religion,
for your country,
for ideology, for faith,
for another man, yes
Paper is dead without words
ink idle without a poem
All the world dead without stories
without love and disarming beauty
Careless realism costs souls"
— Song of myself, Nightwish, Imaginaerum (via lilith-the-ancient)
Wisdom nor pride, give innocence instead
Don’t give me love, I’ve had my share
Beauty nor rest, give me truth instead"
— The Crow, The Owl, and The Dove- Nightwish (via kiracatlover)
