A DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS

On the Backs of Angels
Lyrics by John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and John Myung

Standing on the backs of angels
Destined to create
Mounting the attack
While heroes carry your weight

We spiral towards disaster
Survival fading faster

Riding out the wave
Content to feed off the machine
Bleeding us to death
The new American dream

You’re blinded by your hunger
Beware, your days are numbered

Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me,
Guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me,
Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Blurring lines drawn in between
What is right and what is wrong
Victims on the radar
String us along

We’re on to your agenda
The dead end road to no where

Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me,
Guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me,
Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me,
Guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me,
Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me,
Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Build Me Up, Break Me Down
Lyrics by John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess, James LaBrie and John Myung

Today I will be a saviour
Tomorrow a demon
You crave my eratic behaviour
And watch my every move

Obsession at all costs
You’ll be the death of me
Broken and torn apart
Why can’t you let me be?

You build me up
You break me down
Until I’m falling to pieces
I crash and burn
I never learn
I’m your guilty addiction

Build me up
Break me down

Today
Saviour
Tonight I am the new messiah
You dare defy

When I’m no longer desired
I’ll be crucified

The one who’s free from sin
The first to cast the stone
Fighting the fear within
I won’t be left alone
You build me up
You break me down
Until I’m falling to pieces
The price I pay
To live this way
And the fantasy stays alive
I can’t live up
I can’t let down
And leave you falling to pieces
I crash and burn
I never learn
I’m your morbid obsession

Build me up
Break me down

I will be a saviour

You build me up
You break me down
Until I’m falling to pieces
The price I pay
To live this way
And the fantasy stays alive
I can’t live up
I can’t let down
And leave you falling to pieces
I crash and burn
I never learn
Your iconic fixation

Build me up
Break me down
Build me up
Break me down

Lost Not Forgotten
Lyrics by John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and John Myung

I am not immortal
I am just a man
A power-craving tyrant
Beyond the shadows in the sand

Men have come to fear me
Many bow and cry
Known across the desert
I am the one who will not die

I have faced the demons
Of our most desperate moments
I have been the one to defend our pride
I have worn the banner
Of my abandoned brothers
I will be the first to give my life

Lost, not forgotten
Reigning against the odds
Feared and respected
Living among the gods
Leading the empire
Spirit as black as coal
Lost, not forgotten
King of the deathless soul
An epic novel no one’s read
Pages torn and faded
The greatest story never told

Behold the kingdom I possess
Land of wealth and beauty
Where the streets are paved with gold

Once fearless and brave
A realm passed away
The ghosts of yesterday

Lost, not forgotten
Reigning against the odds
Feared and respected
Living among the gods
Leading the empire
Spirit as black as coal
Lost, not forgotten
King of the deathless soul

Lost, not forgotten
Reigning against the odds
Feared and respected
Living among the gods
Leading the empire
Spirit as black as coal
Lost, not forgotten
King of the deathless soul

This is the Life
Lyrics by John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess

In the heart of your most solemn barren night
When your souls turn inside out
Have you questioned all the madness you invite?
What your life is all about

Some of us chose to live gracefully
Some can get caught in the maze
And lose their way home
This is the life we belong to
Our gift divine

Have you ever wished that you were someone else?
Traded places in your mind
It’s only a waste of your time
Some of us chose to live gracefully
Some can get caught in the maze
And lose their way home
This is the life we belong to
Our gift divine

Feed the illusion you dream about
Cast out the monsters inside
Life begins with an empty slate
Fragile left in the hands of fate
Driven my love and crushed by hate
Until the day the gift is gone
And shadows remain

Some of us chose to live gracefully
Some can get caught in the maze
And lose their way home
Memories will fade
Time races on
What will the say after you’re gone?
This is the life we belong to
Our gift divine
Our gift divine

Bridges in the Sky
Lyrics by John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and John Myung

Blackness
Awakens
Visions come alive

Seeing
Through darkness
With borrowed eyes

Death survivor
Take me higher
Reunite my soul

Whisperer of truth
I trust in you
To make me whole

Sun
Come shine my way
Make healing waters bury all my pain
Wind
Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return
To live again

Feeling myself slip away
Silently dreaming awake
Hidden memories flodding back
I will not glow in the light
Until I pass through the darkest caverns of my heart

Dance with fire
Spirit guide
Erase the world outside

Messenger of truth
I trust in you
Transform me now

Sun
Come shine my way
Make healing waters bury all my pain
Wind
Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return to live again

And at last the time has come
To unite again as one
To the power of the Earth
I’m calling
Crossing bridges in the sky
To a journey to renew my life
Shaman take my hand

Sun
Come shine my way
Make healing waters bury all my pain
Wind carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return to live again

And at last the time has come
To unite again as one
To the power of the Earth
I’m calling
Crossing bridges in the sky
On a journey to renew my life
Shaman take my hand

Outcry
Lyrics by John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and John Myung

Somewhere over head
Distant thunder rolls
The revolution has begun
The war to end all wars

As I welcome death
I hear the battlecry
Bullets fall like fire raining from the sky

The rebel in us all
Something is tired of being pushed around
But freedom has a price
The cost is buried in the ground

We suffered far too long
We gather now
Growing stronger
We will not be ignored
Anymore
Any longer
Our anthem will guide us

Rise up be counted
Stand strong and unite
Wait for the outcry
Resistance is calling tonight

Far too many years
Of chaos and unrest
Far too many voices
Brutally supressed
We fight for what is just
For all that we believe
We fight to death for glory
Fight to be set free

The streets are paved in blood
Time to step down and time to walk away
You’ll never rule me now
Though you may stand upon my grave

You can look the other way
Or you can face the light
Although it seems so far away
Freedom’s worth the fight

Rise up be counted
Stand strong and unite
Wait for the outcry
Resistance is going
Rise up be counted
Stand strong and unite
Wait for the outcry
Resistance is calling tonight

The world watches on
While we risk our lives
Locked in a kingdom of fear
As our children die

Far From Heaven
Lyrics by James LaBrie, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and James LaBrie

No one truly has the answers
Every day I struggle through it once more
Keep things bottled up
Never speaking my mind
Misinterpreted I’m doing just fine

Every day I put a brave face on
Serves me well
Feeling helpless facing it alone
Hard to tell
That I can’t change who I am
How I feel there’s no end

I have done
What you asked of me
Leaves me nothing to live for

Coming undone
Way too high a price
I should pay
You keep your pride
While I die inside
Every day
No I
Can’t lie anymore
Won’t pretend
I’ve done
All I can

You can’t imagine
The hell I’m going through
Not asking you to save me
I’m too far from heaven

Nothing you can do to change me
But accept me as I am

Breaking All Illusions
Lyrics by John Myung and John Petrucci, Music by John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and John Myung

With the sun in place
There’s a test of faith
Streams of thought awaken
New realities
Singularities
Breaking all illusions

Sun in burst of heat
Burning source of life
Masterful destruction
Powers not in light
It’s understanding truth
Changing my direction
Live every one night
Breathing a new beginning
Wisdom revealed
As I am undone
Life’s biggest battles
Up in and fought alone
My spirit brings me home

Ample thoughts flow through my consciousness
Drawn to curses left behind
Test of will, the threshold to ones’ faith
Stars of fire in the night

Searching out
Reaching in
To a ride where I begin
Sights remembered
In the light

Searching out
Reaching in
To a ride where I begin
Sounds remembered
Come alive

Embrace the days
Don’t turn away
Life’s true intent needs patience
Karma starts the signal

Beneath the Surface
Lyrics and Music by John Petrucci

Is there ever really a right time?
You had led me to believe someday you’d be there for me,
when the stars above aligned,
when you weren’t so consumed.
I kept looking for the clues.
So I waited in the shadows of my heart
and still the time was never right.

Until one day I stopped caring,
and began to forget why I longed to be so close.
And I disappeared into the darkness,
and the darkness turned to pain,
and never went away,
until all that remained was buried
deep beneath the surface.

A shell of what things could’ve been,
tired bones beneath them,
of guarded secrets all too frail.
Sad to think I never knew,
you were searching for the words, for the moment to emerge.
Yet the moment never came.
You couldn’t risk my fragile frame.

Until one day you stopped caring,
and began to forget why you tried to be so close.
And you disappeared into the darkness,
and the darkness turned to pain,
and never went away,
until all that remained was buried
deep beneath the surface.

I would scream just to be heard,
as if yelling at the stars.
I was bleeding just to feel.
You would never say a word;
kept me reaching in the dark,
always something to conceal.

Until one day I stopped caring,
and began to forget why I longed to be so close.
And I disappeared into the darkness,
and the darkness turned to pain,
and never went away,
until all that remained was buried
deep beneath the surface.
