Video Premiere: Within Temptation - And We Run Explicit ft. Xzibit

Within Temptation teams up with rapper Xzibit in the official visual for their new single "And We Run" off of the symphonic metal band's new album 'Hydra', released on January 31, 2014. In the sci-fi themed music video for the crossover track, directed by Tim Smit, Sharon den Adel is a priestess that uses her angelic voice to send a hummingbird to Xzibit who is tied to a bio-tech chair inside of an elevated dark prison devoid of colors and sunshine. The bird is consumed by the chair soon after it lands on Xzibit's left hand and its colorful essence is intravenously transferred to the rapper giving him strength to break the synthetic chains and break through the prison walls and successfully escape into the life-giving light.

Lyrics to And We Run by Within Temptation ft. Xzibit

[Sharon den Adel:]
It burns into your heart, the darkness that you fear
You were never free, and you never realized
And love, is a word you've never heard
Your heart ain't cold 'cause it burns
A desire to leave the mire

Take your breath till nothing's left
Scars of life upon your chest
And I know wherever it goes

And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killin' love
And we run, till the heavens above
Yeah we run, runnin' in the dark
And we run, till we fall apart
And we run, till the heavens above

[Xzibit:]
Yeah
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
We gotta get gone
Yeah, we outta here
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
Too late, we gone
Yeah, we outta here

[Sharon den Adel:]
And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killin' love
And we long, for a heavenly heart

[Xzibit:]
I'mma break these chains, ran through the rain
Never looked back, never quit, work through the pain
This blood in my veins run cold
When I think it'll never be the same
But I never lose hope
This is my time now, no time for tears, to celebrate
Put it in the air right now
Never back down
You can never wear my crown
'Cause it weighs too much
And I crush every mother****in' thing I touch
This is love, I've never loved so much
Get involved, make the world stand up
Give my life before I ever give up
"Name in lights", you lost all my trust
Now it's time to face all of us
Get in line 'cause they're callin' us
And it feels so marvelous
Just take my hand and run

[Sharon den Adel:]
And we run, with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killin' love
And we run, till the heavens above
Yeah we run, runnin' in the dark
And we run, till we fall apart
And we run, till the heavens above

[Xzibit:]
Yeah, we outta here

Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
We gotta get gone
Yeah, we outta here (yeah)
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
Too late, we gone
Yeah, we outta here

[Sharon den Adel:]
And we run with a lonely heart
And we run, for this killin' love
And we long, for a heavenly heart

[Xzibit:]
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
We gotta get gone
Yeah, we outta here
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
Too late, we gone
Yeah, we outta here
