Finally Free Lyrics - Dream Theater

Review The Song (5)

Music by Dream Theater
Lyrics by Mike Portnoy

"You are once again surrounded by a brilliant white light. Allow the light to lead you away from your past and into this lifetime. As the light dissipates you will slowly fade back into consciousness remembering all you have learned. When I tell you to open your eyes you will return to the present, feeling peaceful and refreshed. Open your eyes, Nicholas."

The Miracle:
Friday evening
The blood still on my hands
To think that she would leave me now
For that ungrateful man

Sole survivor
No witness to the crime
I must act fast to cover up
I think that there's still time

He'd seem hopeless and lost with this note
They'll buy into the words that I wrote

"This feeling inside me
Finally found my love, I've finally broke free
No longer torn in two
I'd take my own life before losing you"

Feeling good this Friday afternoon
I ran into Julian
Said we'd get together soon

He's always had my heart
He needs to know
I'll break free of the Miracle
It's time for him to go

This feeling inside me
Finally found my love, I've finally broke free
No longer torn in two
He'd kill his brother if he only knew

Their love renewed
They'd rendezvous
In a pathway out of view
They thought no one knew
Then came a shot out of the night

The Sleeper:
One last time
We'll lay down today
One last time
Until we fade away
One last time
We'll lay down today
One last time
We fade away

As their bodies lie still
And the ending draws near
Spirits rise through the air
All their fears disappear, it all becomes clear
A blinding light comes into view
An old soul exchanged for a new
A familiar voice comes shining through

This feeling inside me
Finally found my life, I'm finally free
No longer torn in two
I learned about my life by living through you

This feeling inside me
Finally found my life, I'm finally free
No longer torn in two
Living my own life by learning from you

We'll meet again my friend someday soon

CNN report:
"news in London, France, Russia and Italy have deleted their lead story, all anticipating the outcome of the man considered to be a member of American nobility. And as you can imagine, as the skies have grown darker here over Washington, the mood has grown darker as well and people here are beginning to resign themselves to the possibility that they are witnessing yet another tragedy in a long string of misfortunes. Reaction from everywhere, from Washington and certainly from around the world has gues..."

"Open your eyes, Nicholas."

Explanation | Reviewer: dreaming theatre | 4/10/11

nicholas is victoria in past life who was killed in 1928 by edward. Her lover julian was also killed at same event by edward. As the song says julian and edward are brothers. Last part of this song is nicholas giving a slight groan this means the hypnotherapist is edward ,in this life, of previous life coming to kill nicholas (as he says open your eyes nicholas ).

i guess the whole album kinda suggests a murder cycle ending on victoria , nicholas being killed by edward, hypnotherapist.

Amazing. | Reviewer: PurpleDemon | 5/9/10

Brilliant end to one of the greatest concept albums ever made.

Tragic in a way, with Nicholas, Julian and Victoria all dying. It's a shame there's no Metropolis Pt.3, the events of Pt.2 from the perspective of the Narrator, and more of Edward would be EPIC.
