A Better Life - Dream Theater

"Attention, battalion!
To rank right, face!
Forward, march!"

As fearless leader of the Ravenskill Militia
The blood of warriors flows throughout my veins
My brother's gift remains my secret ammunition
It is our hope, our pride, a catalyst for change
Still the fires of revolution burn within my eyes
On this perilous road to freedom, he's our one and only guide

For many years, I've seen
Our people starve and suffer
How many more will die before we stand and fight?

They ask me "Arhys, could things be any tougher?"
The answer's no surprise: "Yes, you bet your life".
Now the fires of revolution won't burn forever more
I see liberty in our future, and it's one we're fighting for

We all long for a better life
Like a dream that can't be denied
This is the moment, now is the time
Freedom if we live or if we die

I shall give him a better life
I swore this vow to my dying wife
Sure, she would not survive
Peacefully she slipped away
The meaning in my life
Was born that day
And so I found the strength to carry on with this crusade
It is my fate.

Evangeline, you lived a life of misery and pain
Evangeline, I'll never let your memory die in vain
Evangeline, my heavy heart still bleeds
I dedicate my life to set you free
And I will carry on to plant the seeds
I promise in the name of our new son;
This battle won't be over until it's won!
