DREAM THEATER - Metropolis Part I

rate me

[music by Dream Theater, lyrics by Petrucci]

The smile of dawn

Arrived in early May

She carried a gift from her


The night shed a tear

To tell her of fear

And of sorrow and pain

She'll never outgrow

Death is the first dance, eternal

There's no more freedom

The both of you will be

confined to this mind

I was told there's miracle for

each day that I try

I was told there's a new love

that's born for each one that

has died

I was told there'd be no one to

call on when I feel alone and


I was told if you dream of the

next world

You'll find yourself swimming

in a lake of fire

As a child, I thought I could

live without pain without


As a man I've found it's all

caught up with me

I'm asleep yet I'm so afraid

Somewhere like a scene from a


There's a picture worth a

thousand words

Eluding stares from faces

before me

It hides away and will never be

heard of again

Deceit is the second without end

The city's cold blood teaches us

to survive

Just keep my heart in your eyes

and we'll stay alive

The third arrives...

Before the leaves have fallen

Before we lock the doors

There must be the third and

last dance

This one will last forever

Metropolis watches and

thoughtfully smiles

She's taken you to your home

It can only take place

When the struggle between

our children has ended

Now the Miracle and the

Sleeper know that the third

is love

Love is the Dance of Eternity
