DREAM THEATER - This Dying Soul

rate me

[IV. Reflections of Reality (Revisited)]

Hello, Mirror - so glad to see you my friend, it's been a while

Searching, Fearless - where do I begin to heal this wound of self-denial

Face yourself man!

Brace yourself and trace your hell back

You've been blinded, living lie a one way cold existence all the while

Now it's time to stare the problem right between the eyes you long lost child

I wanna feel your body breaking

Wanna feel your body breaking and shaking and left in the cold

I want to heal your conscience making a change o fix this dying soul

Born into this world a broken home

Surrounded by love yet all alone

Forced into a life that's split in two

A mother and a father both pulling you

Then you had to deal with loss and death

Everybody thinking they know best

Coping with this shit at such an age

Can only fill a kid with pain and rage

Family disease pumped through your blood

Never had the chance you thought you could

Running all the while with no escape

Turning all that pain in to blame and hate

Living on your own by twenty one

Not a single care and having fun

Consuming all the life in front of you

Burning out the fuse and smoking the residue

Possessive obsessions selfish childish games

Vengeful resentments

Passing all the blame

Living out a life of decadence

Acing without thought of consequence

Spreading all your lies from coast to coast

While spitting on the ones that matter most

Running power mad with no control

Fighting for the credit they once stole

No one can ever tell you what to do

Ruling other's lives while the can't stand the thought of you

A living reflection seen from miles away

A hopeless affliction having run astray

I wanna feel your body breaking

Wanna feel your body breaking and shaking and left in the cold

I want to heal your conscience making a change o fix this dying soul

Now that you can see all you have done

It's time to take that step into the kingdom

All your sins will only make you strong

And help you break right through the prison wall

[V. Release]

Come to me my friend (Listen to me)

I'll help this torture end (Help to set me free)

Let your ego go (I can't carry this load)

You can't go through this alone (I feel so hopeless and exposed)

You'll find your peace of mind (Give me some direction)

You can no longer hide (Break out of this isolation)

Let humility (Openness, honesty)

And become what you can be (A healing tranquility)

Help me

Save me

Heal me

I can't break out of this prison all alone

These tormenting ghosts of yesterday

Will vanish when exposed

You can't hold onto your secrets

They'll only send you back alone

Your fearless admissions

Will help expel your destructive obsessions

With my help I know you can

Be at one with God and man

Hear me

Believe me

Take me

I'm ready to break right through this prison wall

Dedicated to Bill W. and all of his friends
