DREAM THEATER - The Killing Hand

rate me

- John Petrucci

I. The Observance

An Angel's kiss now fallen

Descending scarlet cuts the sky

Faded names left on the wall

Honor the fighting leave life to die

Remembered is the sacrifice but

No praisal of blood still flowing

Who were the leaders?

what controlled the Killing Hand

that caused this mourning?

Crossing over...

II. Ancient Renewal

Lowered deep into the sea

Being awaits to cleanse his soul

senses weakening time is still

Motionless by stiffening cold

The wheels race back and

Scorch his mind

Traveling all to find the land

Revelation warms a touch

And now, he will begin to


III. The Stray Seed

Extended a view to yesterday

Manifestation for none the same

Walking amidst a frightening still

No sound, no smoke, no scorching


He is risen...

Sipping his poison the raven sings

Yet another to add more bodies fallen

King from below

this one controls

the Killing Hand that caused this mourning.

Is it all over?

Is it all over?

IV. Thorns

Evil genius this secret plan

Mercy dealt with the losing hand

Will he ever fall? Can he end it all?

Our savior must make his stand.

Only a Prophet of

years to come

Wanting mortality I'm all alone

He heard my voice

It was my choice I've

stopped the Killing Hand.

V. Exodus

When I go back again

Will it be the same?

I've stopped the cries

But now they know my name

The sea is calling me

my spirit must return

As I get closer,

was it really worth what I have learned?

I'm in the valley

And the saddened chimes

I hear Race toward the wall to find one more name appears.

No one is left now

my one and only land

I laugh at what I've done

I am the Killing Hand.
