DREAM THEATER - Repentance

VIII Regret

(Hello Mirror, so glad to see you my friend

It's been a while...)

Staring at the empty page before me

All the years of wreckage running through my head

Patterns of my life I thought adorned me

Revealling hurtful shame and deep lament

Overwhelming sorrow now absorbs me

As the pen begins to trace my darkest past

Signs throughout my life that should have warned me

Of all the wrongs I've done for which I must repent

I once thought it better to regret

Things that I have done than haven't

Sometimes you've got to be wrong

Learn the hard way

And sometimes you've got to be strong

When you think it's too late

Staring at the finished page before me

All the damage now so clear and evident

Thinking about the dreaded task in store for me

A pit of fear at the thought of my amends

Hoping that this step will help restore me

To face my past and ask for forgiveness

Cleaning up my dirty side of this unswept street

Could this be the beginning of the end?

I once thought it better to regret

Things that I have done than haven't

Sometimes you've got to be wrong

Learn the hard way

And just when you're through hanging on

You're saved
