Selections from Dream Theater's "Images and Words"

This conversation reminded me to this. Here you go, check it out when you can

Dream theater take the time with lyrics

"You’re fighting the weight of the world
And no one can save you this time
Close your eyes
You can find all that you need in your mind

I close my eyes
And feel the water rise around me
Drown the beat of time
Let my senses fall away
I can see much clearer now, I’m blind"

That particular dream theater album was very esoteric. Afterwards they strayed from that kind of brilliance.

Dream Theater - 08 Learning to Live

“Spread before you is your soul
So forever hold the dreams within our hearts
Through nature’s inflexible grace
I’m learning to live”

This one from that same album is like one of my most influential pieces of music in my life, both musically and lyrically.
