DREAM THEATER

DREAM THEATER - The Root of All Evil

rate me

Music: Dream Theater, Lyrics: Mike Portnoy

VI. Ready

Proud enough for you to call me arrogant

Greedy enough to be labeled a thief

Angry enough for me to go and hurt a man

Cruel enough for me to feel no grief

Never could have just a part of it

I always need more to get by

Getting right down to the heart of it

The root of all evil has been running my whole life

Dirty enough for me to lust

Leaving nothing left to trust

Jealous enough to still feel envious

Lazy enough to sleep all day

And let my life just waste away

Selfish enough to make you wait for me

Driven blindly by our sins

Misled so easily

Entirely ready to leave it behind

I'm begging to break free

Take all of me

The desires that keep burning deep inside

Cast them all away

And help to give me strength to face another day

I am ready

Help me be what I can be

VII. Remove

Self-centered fear has got a hold of me

Clutching my throat

Self righteous anger running all through me

Ready to explode

Procrastination paralyzing me

Wanting me dead

These obsessions that keep haunting me

Won't leave my head

Help to do for me what I can't do myself

Take this fear and pain

I can't break out this prison all alone

Help me break these chains

Humility now my only hope

Won't you take all of me

Heal this dying soul

I can feel my body breaking

I can feel my body breaking

I'm ready to let it all go

I can feel my body shaking

Right down to the foundation

The root of it all

Take all of me

The desires that keep burning deep inside

Cast it all away

And help to give me strength to face another day

I am ready

Help me be what I can be

I am ready

Come to me

Take me away
