DREAM THEATER - Metropolis - Part I 'the Miracle & The Sleeperâ€

rate me

- john petrucci<br><br>The smile of dawn<br>Arrived early may<br>She carried a gift from her home<br>The night shed a tear<br>To tell her of fear<br>And of sorrow and pain<br>She'll never outgrow<br><br>Death is the first dance, eternal<br><br>There's no more freedom<br>The both of you will be confined to this mind<br><br>I was told there's a miracle for each day that I try<br>I was told there's a new love that's born for each one that has died<br>I was told there'd be no one to call on when I feel alone and afraid<br>I was told if you dream of the next world<br>You'll find yourself swimming in a lake of fire<br><br>As a child, I thought I could live without pain without sorrow<br>But as a man I've found it's all caught up with me<br>I'm asleep yet I'm so afraid<br><br>Somewhere like a scene from a memory<br>There's a picture worth a thousand words<br>Eluding stares from faces before me<br>It hides away and will never be heard of again<br><br>Deceit is the second without end<br><br>The city's cold blood teaches us to survive<br>Just keep my heart in your eyes and we'll stay alive<br><br>The third arrives...<br><br>Before the leaves have fallen<br>Before we lock the doors<br>There must be a third and last dance<br>This one will last forever<br>Metropolis watches and thoughtfully smiles<br>She's taken you to your home<br><br>It can only take place<br>When the struggle between our children has ended<br>Now the miracle and the sleeper know that the third is love<br><br>Love is the dance of eternity
