Octavarium - Dream Theater

PART 1 (0:00-4:20)
(instrumental)

PART 2 (4:21-8:44)
I never wanted to become
Someone like him
So secure
Content to live each day
Just like the last
I was sure I knew
That this was not for me
And I wanted so much more
far beyond what I could see
So I swore that I'd never be someone like him

So many years have passed since I proclaimed
My independance, my mission, my aim and my vision
So secure
Content to live each day
Like it's my last
It's wonderful to know
That I could be
Something more than what I dreamed
Far beyond what I could see
Still I swear that I'm missing out this time

As far as I could tell
Theres nothing more I need
But still I ask myself
Could this be everything?
That all I swore
That I would never be
Was now so suddenly
The only thing I wanted
To become
To be someone just like you

PART 3 (8:45-12:15)
A doctor sitting next to me
He asked me how I feel
Not sure I understand his questioning

He says I've been away a while
But thinks he has cured me
>From a state of catatonic sleep

For 30 years where have I been?
Eyes open
But not getting through to me

Medicate me
Infiltrate me
Side effects appear
As my conscience slips away

Medicate me
Science failing
Conscience fading fast
Can't you stop what's happening?

A higher dosage he prescribes
But there's no guarantee
I feel it starting to take over me

I tell them not to be ashamed
There's no one who's to blame
A second shot a brief awakening

I feel the relapse can't break free
Eyes open
But not getting through to me

Medicate me
Infiltrate me
Side effects appear
As my conscience slips away
Medicate me
Science failing
Conscience fading fast
Can't you stop what's happening?

PART 4 (12:16-15:59)
Sailing on the
Seven seas the
day tripper
DM's ready

Jack the Ripper
Always ?Wilson Phillips?
and my
Supper's ready

Lucy in the
Sky with diamond
Day's not here
I've come to save the

Day for nightmare
Cinema show
Me the way to
Get back home again

Spinning round and round
Scream without a sound
Stumbling all around
Find I've come full circle

Flying
Off the
Hand of
With careful with

Out a
Eugene
Gene that
This machine messiah
Light my
Fire
Gather, gather

Hey, hey
Find my
Gener-
-ations home again

Spinning round and round
Scream without a sound
Stumbling all around
Find I've come full circle

PART 5 (16:00-18:27)
(instrumental)

PART 6 (18:28-19:58)
First
Our deadly sins feel his mortal wrath
Remove all obstacles from our path
Second
Asking questions, search for clues
The answer's been right in front of you

Third
We try to break through, long to connect
We fall on death ears with failed muted breath
Fourth
Loyalty, trust, faith in desire
Carries love through each darkest fire

Fifth
Tortured insanity, smothering hell
Try to escape but to no avail
(Sixth
They call them admirers, claim they adore
Drain all your life blood but begging for more

Seventh
Innocent phantoms for merciless crimes
I'll pray to some madness for repulsive designs
Eighth
Step out of step and try controlling my fate
When you finally start living it's become to late

Trapped inside this octavarium
Trapped inside this octavarium
Trapped inside this octavarium
Trapped inside this octavarium

PART 7 (19:59-21:26)
We move in circles
Balanced all the while
On a gleaming razor's edge

A perfect stand
Colliding with our fate
This story ends where it began

PART 8 (21:27-24:00)
(instrumental)
