DREAM THEATER - Metropolis - Part I 'The Miracle and the Sleeper'

rate me

- John Petrucci

The smile of dawn

Arrived early May

She carried a gift from her home

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 a 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 afraid

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 sorrow

But 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 memory

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 a 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
