is a Dutch symphonic metal band. The band was founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.
Their music is variously described as symphonic metal, as well as gothic metal in some media, although in an interview, Den Adel said they fell into a symphonic rock genre with various influences.

I can see, when you stay low nothing happens, does it feel right?
Late at night, things I thought I put behind me haunt my mind
I just know there's no escape now once it sets its eyes on you
But I won't run, have to stare it in the eye
Stand my ground, I won't give in
No more denying, I've got to face it
Won't close my eyes and hide the truth inside
If I don't make it, someone else will stand my ground
It's all around, getting stronger, coming closer into my world
I can feel, that it's time for me to face it. Can I take it?
Though this might just be the ending of the life I held so dear
But I won't run, there's no turning back from here
All I know for sure is I'm trying
I will always stand my ground
