DREAM THEATER - Illumination Theory

rate me

Consider this question

Look deep inside

Deliver a true confession

What are you willing to live for?

Consider this question

Open your eyes

Examine your own reflection

What are you willing to die for?

When your backs’ against the wall

And the time's uncertain

Consider this question

No standing by

When flesh and blood are threatened

What are you willing to kill for?

We seek to understand

We cry with head in hand

The bridges we build to connect

The distance that makes us forget

Hate dividing us, love reminding us

Of our shared humanity

Hope can be a shadow fleeting

I would rather die believing

Capture it all in a final act of faith

We seek to understand

We cry with head in hand

A story that needs to be told

An answer that begs to be found

The beauty we wish to behold

Is never too far away


Mothers for their children

Husbands for their wives

Martyrs for the kingdom

Fighting for your life

A soldier for his country

A junkie for the high

Teachers for their students

Vengeance for a crime

Rebels for their freedom

A tyrant for the praise

Cowards for salvation

Money, love, and fame

Noble and brave

Lay down our lives for the cause

Death over shame

Grace before glory


To really feel the joy in life

You must suffer through the pain

When you surrender to the light

You can face the darkest days

If you open up your eyes

And you put your trust in love

On those cold and endless nights

You will never be alone

Passion glows within your heart

Like a furnace burning bright

Until you struggle through the dark

You’ll never know that you're alive
