Alone at night
I feel so strange
I need to find
All the answers to my dreams

When I sleep at night
I hear the cries
What does this mean?

I shut the door and traveled to another home
I met an older man, he seemed to be alone
I felt that I could trust him
He talked to me that night

"Lad, did you know a girl was murdered here?
This fatal tragedy was talked about for years
Victoria's gone forever, only memories remain
She passed away, she was so young"

Without love, without truth
There can be no turning back
Without faith, without hope
There can be no peace of mind

As the night went on
I started to find my way
I learned about a tragedy
A mystery still today

I tried to get more answers
But he said, "You're on your own"
Then he turned away and left me
As I stand there all alone
He said, "You'll know the truth
As your future days unfold, unfold"

Without love, without truth
There can be no turning back
Without faith, without hope
There can be no peace of mind

Now it is time to see how you died
Remember that death is not the end
But only a transition
