General information

Written by: A. Lee, B. Moody and D. Hodges

Field of Innocence is the sixth track from Evanescence's demo album, Origin. It's based on a poem written by Ben Moody and he also reads it in the background of the song.[1] The female vocal ensemble is composed of Suvi Petrajajvri, Sara Moore, Catherine Harris, and Samantha Strong.[2]

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]
