DREAM THEATER - Metropolis - Part I 'the Miracle & The Sleeper†Lyrics

- john petrucciThe smile of dawnArrived early mayShe carried a gift from her homeThe night shed a tearTo tell her of fearAnd of sorrow and painShe'll never outgrowDeath is the first dance, eternalThere's no more freedomThe both of you will be confined to this mindI was told there's a miracle for each day that I tryI was told there's a new love that's born for each one that has diedI was told there'd be no one to call on when I feel alone and afraidI was told if you dream of the next worldYou'll find yourself swimming in a lake of fireAs a child, I thought I could live without pain without sorrowBut as a man I've found it's all caught up with meI'm asleep yet I'm so afraidSomewhere like a scene from a memoryThere's a picture worth a thousand wordsEluding stares from faces before meIt hides away and will never be heard of againDeceit is the second without endThe city's cold blood teaches us to surviveJust keep my heart in your eyes and we'll stay aliveThe third arrives...Before the leaves have fallenBefore we lock the doorsThere must be a third and last danceThis one will last foreverMetropolis watches and thoughtfully smilesShe's taken you to your homeIt can only take placeWhen the struggle between our children has endedNow the miracle and the sleeper know that the third is loveLove is the dance of eternity
