Tags and Lyrics – Metropolis – Dream Theater

[01:49.21]The smile of dawn arrived early May
[01:53.65]She carried a gift from her home
[01:58.14]The night shed a tear to tell her of fear
[02:02.59]And of sorrow and pain
[02:04.95]She’ll never outgrow
[02:07.63]Death is the first dance, eternal
[02:12.65]There’s no more freedom
[02:17.44]The both of you will be
[02:21.19]confined to this mind
[02:36.24]I was told there’s a miracle for each day that I try
[02:42.71]I was told there’s a new love
[02:45.59]that’s born for each one that has died
[02:49.09]I was told there’d be no one to
[02:52.30]call on when I feel alone and afraid
[02:56.12]I was told if you dream of the next world
[02:59.92]You’ll find yourself swimming in a lake of fire
[03:07.26]As a child, I thought I could
[03:10.31]live without pain without sorrow
[03:16.34]As a man I’ve found it’s all caught up with me
[03:21.89]I’m asleep yet I’m so afraid
[03:34.21]Somewhere like a scene from a memory
[03:39.36]There’s a picture worth a thousands words
[03:43.79]Eluding stares from faces before me
[03:48.60]It hides away and will never be heard again
[03:53.11]Deceit is the second without end
[03:57.49]The city’s cold blood teaches us to survive
[04:02.11]Just keep me heart in your eyes and we’ll stay alive
[04:09.87]The third arrives…
[08:13.52]Before the leaves have fallen
[08:19.62]Before we lock the doors
[08:26.60]There must be the third and last dance
[08:30.46]This one will last forever
[08:34.05]Metropolis watches and thoughtfully smiles
[08:38.30]She’s taken you to your home
[08:42.59]It can only take a place
[08:45.59]When the struggle between
[08:47.21]our children has ended
[08:50.68]Now the Miracle and the
[08:54.21]Sleeper know that the third is love
[09:04.31]Love is the Dance of Eternity
