DREAM THEATER

DREAM THEATER - The Shattered Fortress

rate me

X. Restraint

Freedom calls my name

Serenity keeps me sane

Happiness it dulls the pain

Honest to see my place

Open to other ways

Willingness to understand

Justice but do not judge

Courtesy for others' flaws

Kindness it's not that hard

Self-restraint of tongue and pen

Inventory my daily friend

Analysis let down your guard

Look in the mirror

What do you see?

The shattered fortress

That once bound me

Fateful ascent

Through darkest fires

I've found the path

To take me higher

You're smart enough for me to trust go live your life now

Just keep these steps in your life and you'll know how

If you're not sure, ask yourself

"Have I done to them

As I would have them do to me?"

Look in the mirror

What's that you see?

The shattered fortress

Fly now be free

Fateful ascent

Through darkest fears

I've found the path

To take me higher

I once thought it better to be right

But now I have finally seen the light

Sometimes you've got to be wrong

And learn from mistakes

I live with serenity now

Not self-righteous hate

XI. Receive

Now that you can see all you have done

It's time to take that step into the kingdom

All your sins will help to make your strong

And help you break right through the prison wall

Keep all of me

The desires that once burned me deep inside

Help me live today

And help to give me grace

To carry out your way

I am ready

Help me be all I can be

I am ready

Help guide me and keep me free

XII. Responsible

I am responsible

When anyone, anywhere

Reaches out for help

I want my hand to be there

I am responsible

When anyone, anywhere

Reaches out for help

I want my hand to be there
