Field Of Innocence
Song

Field of Innocence is the sixth track on Origin.

Background

Based on a poem written by Ben Moody. He's also reading it in the background.

The female vocal ensemble is composed of Suvi Petrajajvri, Sara Moore, Catherine Harris, and Samantha Strong.

The Latin chanting repeated throughout the song was not written by Evanescence. It is a snippet from the song "Morning Hymn" from the Preludium of the Broadway version of Sound of Music. According to MutantQuasar, an Evboarder, the Latin translated to English means:

O Jesus, King most wonderful!

Thou Conqueror renowned!

Thou Sweetness most ineffable!

in whom all joys are found!

Lyrics

Iesu, Rex amirabilis

I still remember the world from the eyes of a child
Slowly those feelings were clouded by what I know now

Where has my heart gone?
An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I, I want to go back to
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

Where has my heart gone?
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I, I want to go back to
Believing in everything

Iesu, Rex amirabilis
et triumphator nobilis
dulcedo ineffabilis
ineffabilis
totus desiderabilis

As the years pass by before my face
[totus desiderabilis]
As wars rage before me
Finding myself in these last days of existence
This parasite inside me I forced it out
In the darkness of the storm
[Iesu, Rex amirabilis]
Lies an evil
But it's me

Where has my heart gone?
An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I, I want to go back to
Believing in everything

Oh, where, where has my heart gone?
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I, I want to go back to
Believing in everything

I still remember

Iesu, Rex amirabilis
