Metropolis Pt. 1 Lyrics - Dream Theater

Review The Song (3)

The smile of dawn arrived early May
She carried a gift from her home
The night shed a tear to tell her of fear
And of sorrow and pain
She'll never outgrow
Death is the first dance, eternal

There's no more freedom
The both of you will be
confined to this mind
I was told there's a miracle for each day that I try
I was told there's a new love
that's born for each one that has died
I was told there'd be no one to
call on when I feel alone and afraid
I was told if you dream of the next world
You'll find yourself swimming in a lake of fire

As a child, I thought I could
live without pain without sorrow
As a man I've found it's all caught up with me
I'm asleep yet I'm so afraid

Somewhere like a scene from a memory
There's a picture worth a thousand words
Eluding stares from faces before me
It hides away and will never be heard of again
Deceit is the second without end

The city's cold blood teaches us to survive
Just keep my heart in your eyes and we'll stay alive
The third arrives...

Before the leaves have fallen
Before we lock the doors
There must be the third and last dance
This one will last forever
Metropolis watches and thoughtfully smiles
She's taken you to your home

It can only take place
When the struggle between
our children has ended
Now the Miracle and the
Sleeper know that the third is love
Love is the Dance of Eternity

Fantastic composition | Reviewer: Sam | 6/21/13

This song is one of my favorites. So complex yet so melodic. THe last section of the composition with the drums, guitar and keyboard blows me away everytime i listen to it. Mike Portnoy has always been my hero, but in this song he just let his heart out and wrote something out of the world.

Words Cannot Describe... | Reviewer: Amanda K. | 5/28/13

This song is extremely moving. The vocals are beyond extraordinary! I'm (soon to be) the vocalist of a prog. metal band and singing this song is almost an honor. Even a female like myself can have troubles with such a powerful voice!

Amazingness in its pure form. | Reviewer: Letsmakesomesense | 5/23/13

I wonder why there are no comments yet. This song is like drug for me. Almost 10 minutes of an epic journey, so touching and moving it gives me shivers. The melody is extraordinary, not to mention the lyrics. I absolutely love the song!
