DREAM THEATER - Metropolis Pt. 1

rate me

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

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 thousands words

Eluding stares from faces before me

It hides away and will never be heard again

Deceit is the second without end

The city's cold blood teaches us to survive

Just keep me 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 a 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
