"III Ways to Epica" as written by and Roy S./youngblood Khantatat....
When you play with fire
You must anticipate some burns
Chasing for desire
It's just a different way to learn

I am defected from God

God had seized my soul

So low redemptions too far

I am heaven's sheen

She's the one that I loved

Love is all around

And she tore me apart

The dark can never win

All that I require
Is some trust as the pages turn
I can take you higher
Cause your will is my concern

I am defected from God

God had seized my soul

So low redemptions too far

I am heaven's sheen

She's the one that I loved

Love is all around

And she tore me apart

The dark can never win

So long...maybe forever
I must carry on
Why did God take away
That one thing I wanted
Maybe God is the melody
We all serenade

You would not feel sadness
If you never tasted joy
That's the curse of humans
Born in passion you destroy

    General CommentThis song is the conclusion to the 1st part of the Epica story line (it is continued on the black halo :P)

    Ariel (the main character) is on a quest for the meaning of life and in exchange of his sould he is aided by the devil Mephisto. He makes Ariel realise what the meaning in his life was by taking away Helena, his one and only love. She was his reason to life.

    That's the basic conclusion we get out of the story line.. When looking at the title of this song, two questions may arise "What's Epica?" and "What about these three ways?"

    Well, Epica is first described in the books of Götheberg and it is assumed to be the Centre of the Universe, the alleged place where we can find the answer to al questions.
    This is where Ariel hoped to find the meaning of life..

    The three ways to Epica, can be found back in the three paragraphs of the song in which Mepihisto speaks. It are three life lessons he tries to give to Ariel.

    The first lesson is "Everyone will make mistakes in his life and you'll pay for them. But you will also learn from them."

    The 2nd lesson: "Sometimes you just have to trust people to be able to carry on in life" (though this can also be seen as a trick of the devil, who tries to gain Ariel's trust again.. something in which he suceeds as we can see on the black halo album)

    And his final lesson "You just have to learn to accept that sorrow is just as much a part of life as happiness."
