The Ministry Of Lost Souls
   ------Dream Theater

The water’s edge is where she waits,
Lost soul still wandering;
Meant to die,
But she’s stuck not crossing over.

The Other Side is where he waits,
His spirit reaching out;
Meant to save,
But she’s too scared to take his hand.

Living in a world without you
(I’m drowning in my past...)
Is living in no world at all.
So now I call on you...

Remember me!
I gave you life!
You would not take it.
Your suffering was all in vain!

It’s almost over now...
Don’t turn your back on Paradise.

Feeling scared,
She’s prepared
To give up everything.
She can’t stand
To feel like half of her is fading.

He will choose the only way
To rid her of her pain:
Take her soul now,
The decision has been made.

Living in a world without love
(It burns into my soul...)
Is living in a worthless world.
So I will call on you...

Remember me!
I gave you life!
You would not take it.
Your suffering was all in vain!
It’s almost over...

Remember me!
You were so young.
How could I tell you?
Remember me!
I am the one
Who saved your life that night.
I was the one who would not
Abandon you.
Even in death, I was the one
Who would not leave you.

I used my freedom to protect you,
And all the while direct you.
Do you remember me this time?
Even in death, I gave you life!
I gave you life!

I wanted to deserve a place,
A place beside you...
This time when I reached out my hand,
It reached all the way to Heaven.

Remember me!
I gave you life!
You would not take it.
Your suffering was all in vain!
It’s almost over now.
Goodbye...
It’s almost over now.
Goodbye...

It’s time,
I release you from this life.
Don’t turn your back on Paradise!
