"Ophelia" as written by Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull, Thorsten Bauer and Alexander Krull....
O maiden pale Ophelia
Your skin is white like diamonds in the snow
But they know

Madness and hysteria
Turned your flowers into stone

Fleur de lis
Sweets to the sweet

I can hear them mourning at my grave
Ophelia
Can you feel this madness in my veins
Love and pain
The sighing fate
I fade away into black waters

Confident black river streams tangling your hair
White veils merge to snowbells
Like deadly poetry
All around you fleur de lis on a white mortal bed

I can hear them mourning at my grave
Ophelia
Can you feel this madness in my veins
Love and pain
The sighing fate
I fade away into black waters

Maiden, thou shalt not sin
Virgin, suppress your will
Forces, seduce your mind
Haunting a damsels sleep

Phantom white Ophelia
Sings her prayers in water lily's tears
Are turning red

Maiden, thou shalt not sin
Maiden, thou shalt redeem
Virgin, suppress your will
Forces seduce your needs
Maiden, thou shalt believe
Purity and decensy

I can hear them mourning at my grave
Ophelia
Can you feel this madness in my veins
Love and pain
The sighing fate
I fade away into black waters

I hear them mourning
(Ophelia)
Why all this madness
(Ophelia)
Fleur de lis
Ophelia
