Anteroom of Death
Tarja Lyrics


Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the Joker, King or Queen?
Place your cards as they're coming
Came to win
Lost everything
Gambling rider pull the strings
Pull them tighter

Let them in
Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who's got the keys
And who has not?
Sell your fortune to me
Cause I can still read behind all that
Burn your fingers
Trade a dream
Watch the clock as it's ticking

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Blinded in the dark
I'm touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you're searching
Learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow
Finally

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

This is Tarja's masterpiece, to someone not familiarized with her music I would certainly introduce them to her with this piece, it defines Tarja's solo career, it has drama, classical elements, heavy theatrical lyrics, powerful vocals and heaviness with finesse, a perfect combo of guitar and drums. Better only if one has the chance to witness the live version where she uses her deep dark chest timbre that just adds to the overall drama and fits like a glove. And Van Canto should collaborate with her a ton of times more because damn... Welcome to the Anteroom of Death is fucking epic!

The way she utilizes all these different sounds is what gets me. It's such a unique way to put together a song and experiment with her vocals at the same time. I can't imagine anyone being able to do a cover of this: it's expressly hers and no one else's.

For me, her album masterpieces are the live DVD's. Especially Act 1, but also Act 2. Her live performances are still the most amazing part of her art. :)) Strongest studio album, for me, is "What Lies Beneath" (very closely followed by "Colours in The Dark"). "Anteroom Of Death" of course one of her greatest songs - and yes, quite representative for all her solo career. :)))

Everett Cox

What a great song, very complicated musically and vocally. Reminds me of Queen's music.

Mirage Cat

And still, it would be nice that people moved on and stopped debating the Tarja-Nightwsh issue.

i think, this is best TArja's song ( after her leaving Nightwish).

Big Bill O'Reilly I like being a ghost. Also I said “OR” read it. I never said they were the same. But seriously if I was in a back ally with you I’d whoop your ass 😘

CreepyTampons

Big Bill O'Reilly Case never close. And you used “chump” lmao what are you 50 years old. Also You’re just dumb and that’s it. You can’t even accept the fact someone said it’s their favorite or the best. It’s the best for him you don’t have to agree with him but yet you don’t have to be a dick about an opinion.

CreepyTampons

Big Bill O'Reilly Listen fat bill. If that person thinks that’s her best song then let them have their opinions. Negative little shit.
