A Fortune In Lies – Dream Theater

“For this time in a long time… everything was right in my world… and then I woke up.” I can remember when, In the unity of our five-day sessions Not even once did we hear the siren song What kind of imagination Asleep in some lyrical coma Who’s vain futile memory Could have been so […]

You Not Me – Dream Theater

Watching you run is making me lazy You’re trying to buy a place in my head Telling me lines I’ve already read Speaking my name to try to confuse me Say it again you’re starting to lose me That’s alright I’m okay It happens every single day It’s all the same But I’m not blind […]

The Killing Hand – Dream Theater

I. The Observance An Angel’s kiss now fallen Descending scarlet cuts the sky Faded names left on the wall Honor the fighting leave life to die Remembered is the sacrifice but No praisal of blood still flowing Who were the leaders? What controlled the Killing Hand That caused this mourning? Crossing over… II. Ancient Renewal […]

Under A Glass Moon – Dream Theater

Tell me Remind me Chase the water racing from the sky Always beside me Taste the memories running from my eyes Nervous flashlights scan my dreams Liquid shadows silence their screams I smile at the moon Chasing water from the sky I argue with the clouds Stealing beauty from my eyes Outside the soundness of […]

Hollow Years – Dream Theater

You hear about Who leaves his family for An easy out They never saw the signs He never said a word He couldn’t take another day Carry me to the shoreline Bury me in the sand Walk me across the water And maybe you’ll understand Once the stone You’re crawling under Is lifted off your […]

Voices – Dream Theater

He used to say to me every Sunday morning The spider in the window The angel in the pool The old man takes the poison Now the widow makes the rules ‘So speak, I’m right here’ She used to say to me not a word, not a word Judas on the ceiling the Devil in […]

Afterlife – Dream Theater

I touched with one Who made me run Away from my own soul… In this world with its Many illusions We are moving like mice through a maze And now I find What’s left behind Has served to make me whole Full of doubt, deception, and delusion Seeking purpose to all earthly days I search […]

Lie – Dream Theater

at the bottom of lake it’s a hundred degrees I can’t breathe And I won’t get out ’til I figure it out Though I’m weak like I can’t believe So you tell me ‘trust me’ l can trust you Just let me show you But I gotta work it out in a shadow of doubt […]

6:00 – Dream Theater

“And for what?” “Well, isn’t it for the honor of God, (Samples from the film “The Dead”,) Aunt Kate?” (an adaptation of James Joyce’s ) “I know all about the honor of God, (short story from his book ) Mary Jane.” (“Dubliners”. ) Six o’clock the siren kicks him from a dream Tries to shake […]

Burning My Soul – Dream Theater

A lump in my throat, the size of a boulder The chill up my spine, can’t get any colder And you wonder why I can’t smile A knot in my gut, an ape on my back In the heat of the moment I’m knocked off the track You drop the ball, I pick up the […]

Burning My Soul – Dream Theater

A lump in my throat, the size of a boulder The chill up my spine, can’t get any colder And you wonder why I can’t smile A knot in my gut, an ape on my back In the heat of the moment I’m knocked off the track You drop the ball, I pick up the […]

Caught In An Web – Dream Theater

I watch you Show me the hurt that haunts you would you despise the thrill If all you hide were mine? I can’t hold on any longer These feelings keep growing stronger Echoes that deafen the mind will bury my voice in their wake Caught in a Web Removed from the world Hanging on by […]

Surrounded – Dream Theater

Morning comes too early and nighttime falls too late And sometimes all I want to do is wait The shadow I’ve been hiding in has fled from me today I know it’s easier to walk away than look it in the eye But I will raise a shelter to the sky and beneath this star […]
