Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt.1 ~The Miracle & The Sleeper~ (Score) (Live) lyrics

[Part 1]
The smile of dawn arrived early May
She carried a gift from her home
The night shed a tear to tell her of fear
And of sorrow and pain she'll never outgrow

Death is the first dance, eternal

[Part 2]
There's no more freedom
The both of you will be confined
To this mind

[Part 3]
I was told there's a miracle for each day that I try
I was told there's a new love that's born for each one that has died
I was told there'd be no one to call on when I feel alone and afraid
I was told if you dream of the next world
You'll find yourself swimming in a lake of fire

[Part 4]
As a child, I thought I could live without pain, without sorrow
As a man, I've found it's all caught up with me
I'm asleep, yet I'm so afraid

[Part 5]
Somewhere like a scene from a memory
There's a picture worth a thousand words
Eluding stares from faces before me
It hides away and will never be heard of again

Deceit is the second without end

[Part 6]
The city's cold blood teaches us to survive
Just keep my heart in your eyes and we'll stay alive
The third arrives...

[Instrumental Break]

[Part 7]
Before the leaves have fallen
Before we lock the doors
There must be the third and last dance
This one will last forever
Metropolis watches and thoughtfully smiles
She's taken you to your home

[Part 8]
It can only take place
When the struggle between our children has ended
Now the Miracle and the Sleeper know
That the third is love

Love is the Dance of Eternity
