Dream Theater – Lost Not Forgotten


I am not immortal

I am just a man

A power-craving tyrant

Beyond the shadows in the sand

 

Men have come to fear me

Many bow and cry

Known across the desert

I am the one who will not die

 

I have faced the demons of most desperate moments

I have been the one to defend our pride

I have worn the banner of my abandoned brothers

I will be the first one to give my life

 

Lost not forgotten

Reigning against the odds

Feared and respected living among the gods

Leading the empire

Spirit as black as coal

Lost not forgotten

King of the deathless soul

 

An epic novel no one’s read

Pages torn and faded

The greatest story never told

 

 

Behold the kingdom I posses

Land of wealth and beauty

Where the streets are paved with gold

 

Once fearless and brave

A realm passed away

The ghosts of yesterday

 

Lost not forgotten

Reigning against the odds

Feared and respected living among the gods

Leading the empire

Spirit as black as coal

Lost not forgotten

King of the deathless soul

 

Lost not forgotten

Reigning against the odds

Feared and respected living among the gods

Leading the empire

Brutal and heartless

Vanishing further

Into the darkness

Lost not forgotten

King of the deathless soul

Dream Theater – This Is The Life


Gambar

In the heart of your most solemn barren night

When your soul’s turned inside out

Have you questioned all the madness you invite

What your life is all about

Some of us choose to live gracefully

Some can get caught in the maze

And lose their way home

This is the life we belong to

Our gift divine

Have you ever wished that you were someone else

Traded places in your mind

It’s only a waste of your time

Some of us choose to live gracefully

Some can get caught in the maze

And lose their way home

This is the life we belong to

Our gift divine

Feed the illusion you dream about

Cast out the monsters inside

Life begins with an empty slate

Fragile left in the hands of fate

Driven by love and crushed by hate

Until the day

The gift is gone

And shadows remain

Some of us choose to live gracefully

Some can get caught in the maze

And lose their way home

Memories will fade

Time races on

What will they say

After you’re gone

This is the life we belong to

Our gift divine

Our gift divine

Dream Theater – Breaking All Illusions


With the sun in place

There’s a test of faith

Streams of thought awaken

 

New realities

Singularities

Breaking all illusions

 

Sudden burst of heat

Burning source of life

Masterful destruction

 

Power’s not an act

It’s understanding truth

Changing my direction

 

Live in the moment

Breathe in a new beginning

Wisdom revealed

As I unlearn to learn

 

Life’s biggest battles

Often are fought alone

My spirit brings me home

 

Emerald thoughts flow

through my consciousness

Drawn to curses left behind

Test of will the threshold to one’s faith

Starts a fire in the mind

 

Searching out

Reaching in

To arrive

Where I began

Sights remembered

In the light

 

Searching out

Reaching in

To arrive

Where I began

Sounds remembered

Come alive

 

Embrace the days

Don’t turn away

Life’s true intent needs patience

Karma stars the signal

Dream Theater – On The Backs Of Angels


Standing on the backs of angels

       Destined to create

              Mounting the attack

                      While heroes carry your weight

                         We spiral towards disaster

                         Survival fading faster

                         Riding out the wave

                                Content to feed off the machin

                                         Bleeding us to death

                                                   The new American dream

                                                      You’re blinded by your hunger

                                            Beware, your days are numbered

    Tears fall from the shameless

     Shelter me,

     Guide me to the edge of the water

                                                                                        Selfless are the righteous

                                                                                        Burden me,

                                                                                        Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

                                                       Blurring lines drawn in between

                                             What is right and what is wrong

                                    Victims on the radar

                            String us along

                            We’re on to your agenda

                             The dead end road to no where

Selfless are the righteous

Burden me

Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Dream Theater – Build Me Up, Break Me Down


Today I will be your savior

Tomorrow a demon

You crave my erratic behavior

And watch my every move

 

Obsession at all cost

You’ll be the death of me

Broken and torn apart

Why can’t you let me be

 

You build me up

You break me down

Until I’m falling to pieces

 

I crash and burn

I never learn

I’m your guilty addiction

 

Build me up

Break me down

 

Tonight I am the new messiah

You deify

When I’m no longer desired

I’ll be crucified

 

The one who’s free from sin

The first to cast the stone

Fighting the fear within

I won’t be left alone

 

You build me up

You break me down

Until I’m falling to pieces

 

The price I pay

To live this way

And the fantasy stays alive

 

I can’t live up

I can’t let down

And leave you falling to pieces

 

I crash and burn

I never learn

I’m your morbid obsession

 

Build me up

Break me down

 

You build me up

You break me down

Until I’m falling to pieces

 

The price I pay

To live this way

And the fantasy stays alive

 

I can’t live up

I can’t let down

And leave you falling to pieces

 

I crash and burn

I never learn

Your iconic fixation

 

Build me up

Break me down

 

Build me up

Break me down

Dream Theater – Brigde In The Sky


Blackness awakens

Visions come alive

Seeing through darkness

With borrowed eyes

Death survivor

Take me higher

Reunite my soul

Whisperer of truth

I trust in you

To make me whole

Sun

Come shine my way

May healing waters bury all my pain

Wind

Carry me home

The fabric of reality is tearing apart

The piece of me that died

Will return

To live again

Feeling myself slip away

Suddenly dreaming awake

Hidden memories

Flooding back

I will not grow in the light

Until I pass through the darkest caverns of my heart

Dance with fire

Spirit guide erase the world outside

Messenger of truth

I trust in you

Transform me now

Sun

Come shine my way

May healing waters bury all my pain

Wind

Carry me home

The fabric of reality is tearing apart

The piece of me that died

Will return

To live again

And at last the time has come

To unite again as one

To the power of the Earth I’m calling

Crossing bridges in the sky

On a journey to renew my life

Shaman take my hand

Sun

Come shine my way

May healing waters bury all my pain

Wind

Carry me home

The fabric of reality is tearing apart

The piece of me that died

Will return

To live again

And at last the time has come

To unite again as one

To the power of the Earth I’m calling

Crossing bridges in the sky

On a journey to renew my life

Shaman take my hand
