DREAM THEATER

DREAM THEATER - A Nightmare To Remember

rate me

A nightmare to remember

I'd never be the same

What began as laughter

So soon would turn to pain

The sky was clear and frigid

The air was thick and still

Now I'm not one to soon forget

And I bet I never will

Picture for a moment

The perfect irony

A flawless new beginning

Eclipsed by tragedy

The uninvited Stranger

Strated dancing on his own

So we said goodbye to the glowing bride

And we made our way back home

Life was so simple then

We were so innocent

Father and mother

Holding each other

Without warning

Out of nowhere

Like a bullet

From the night

Crashing glass

Rubber and steel

Scorching fire

Glowing lights

Screams of terror

Pain and fear

Sounds of sirens

Smoke in my eyes

Sudden stillness

Wrapped in silence

No more screaming

No more cries

Stunned and bewildered

Cold and afraid

Torn up and broken

Frightened and dazed

Stunned and bewildered

Cold and afraid

Torn up and broken

Frightened and dazed

Lying on the table

In this unfamilliar place

I'm greeted by a stranger

A man without a face

He said "Son do you remember?

Do you even know your name?"

Then he shined a light into my eyes

and said "Take this for the pain"

Hopelessly drifting

Bathing in beautiful agony

I am endlessly falling

Lost in this wonderful misery

In peaceful sedation I lay half awake

And thought of the panic inside starts to fade

Hopelessly drifting

Bathing in beautiful agony

"Tell me does this hurt you?"

Said the faceless man

"Can you move all of your fingers?

Can you try your best to stand?"

I asked about the others

"Is everyone okay?"

He told me not to worry

As he turns and looked away

Hopelessly drifting

Bathing in beautiful agony

I am endlessly falling

Lost in this wonderful misery

In peaceful sedation I lay half awake

And thought of the panic inside starts to fade

Hopelessly drifting

Bathing in beautiful agony

Day after day

And night after night

We burden the oppressed

Did they ever see the red light?

Over and over

Scene by scene

Like a recurring nightmare

Haunting my dreams

How can you prepare

For what happens next?

The search you'll never have to see

His father's such a mess

It's a miracle he lived

It's a blessing no one died

By the grace of God above

Everyone survived

Life was so simple then

We were so innocent

It will stay with us forever

A nightmare to remember
