Dream Theater The Ones Who Help to Set the Sun Lyrics

Watching my window I was led like a
Child
As the roadway lamplight's
Misguided my mind through the night
A shadow of limits
We were racing the rain
My hands held the wheel
My eyes tried to hold their place

There must have been a time
When I thought that you were
Watching
It had to be when my senses lost
Control
I thought I'd slipped away
I thought I could still feel us
Moving
It must have been a cloud
No bigger than a man's hand

Every reason I risk my life
To come back to you
Is locked behind your door
You're my immunity
Outside I watched you burn
Heavy hearts were bleeding
A cry for help, a familiar voice
My melting hands streaked the glass

As I walked away
I wondered what had really
Happened
Had I run out of time
Did I push myself too far
As my last step fell
I felt my hands upon the wheel
Had I come back to life
Or did I ever leave at all

In higher lives
We seem to be
Always a moment too late
We're past the time
When we looked on
Now we're
The ones who help to
Set the sun
This time for real
I locked the door behind me
My mind was still a wreck
From what I saw
For when my hands are still
I'll recognize the message
Never again will my senses lose
Control
In higher lives
We seem to be
Always a moment too late
We're past the time
When we looked on
Now we're
The ones who help to
Set the sun
