DREAM THEATER

DREAM THEATER - The Great Debate

rate me

What if someone said

Promise lies ahead

Hopes are high in certain scientific circles

Life won't have to end

You could walk again

What if someone said

Problems lie ahead

They've uncovered something highly controversial

The right to life is strong

Can't you see it's wrong

Human kind has reached a turning point

Poised for conflict at ground zero

Ready for a war

Do we look to our unearthly guide

Or the white coat heroes

Searching for a cure

Turn to the light

Don't be frightened of the shadows it creates

Turn to the light

Turning away would be a terrible mistake

Anarchistic moral vision

Industries of death

Facing violent opposition

Unmolested breath

Ethic inquisitions breed

Antagonistic views

Right wing soundbyte premonitions

In a labyrinth of rules

Are you justified

Are you justified

Are you justified

Justified in taking

Life to save life

Life to save life

Taking life to save life

This embryonic clay

Wrapped in fierce debate

Would be thrown away

Or otherwise discarded

Some of us believe

It may hold the key

To treatment of disease

And secrets highly guarded

Are you justified

Are you justified

Are you justified

Justified in taking

Life to save life

Life to save life

Life to save life

Humankind has reached a turning point

Poised for conflict at ground zero

Ready for a war

Do we look to our unearthly guide

Or to white coat heroes

Turn to the light

Don't be frightened of the shadows it creates

Turn to the light

Turning away would be a terrible mistake

We're reaching

But have we gone too far

Harvesting existence

Only to destroy

Carelessly together

We are sliding

Someone else's future

Four days frozen still

Someone else's fate

We are deciding

Miracle potential

Sanctity of life

Faced against each other

We're divided

Should we push the boundaries

Or should we condemn

Moral guilt and science

Have collided

Turn to the light

We defy our own mortality these days

Turn to the light

Pay attention to the questions we have raised
