Octavarium - Dream Theater

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
Then all I swore
That I would never be was now
So suddenly
The only thing

I wanted

To become
To be someone just like him
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 him 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?
sailing on the seven seize the day tripper diem's ready
jack the ripper owens wilson phillips and my supper's ready
lucy in the sky with diamond daves not here I 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 handle with careful with
that axe eugene gene the dance machine

messiah light my fire gabba gabba
hey hey my my generation's home
again
Spinning round and round

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

Our deadly sins feel his mortal wrath

Remove all obstacles from our path
Asking questions
Search for clues

The answer's been right in front of you
We try to break through
Long to connect
Fall on deaf ears with failed muted breath

Loyalty, trust, faith and desire
Carries love through each darkest fire
Tortured insanity
A smothering hell
Try to escape but to no avail
The calls of admirers
Who claim they adore
Drain all your lifeblood while begging for more
Innocent victims for merciless crimes
Fall prey to some madman's for impulsive designs
Step after step
We try controlling our fate
When we finally start living it's become to late
Trapped inside this Octavarium
Trapped inside this Octavarium
Trapped inside this Octavarium
Trapped inside this Octavarium
We move in circles
Balanced all the while
On a gleaming razor's edge
A perfect sphere
Colliding with our fate
This story ends where it began
