The spirit carries on

Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say, “Life is too short,”
“The here and the now”
And “You’re only given one shot”
But could there be more,
Have I lived before,
Or could this be all that we’ve got?

If I die tomorrow
I’d be allright
Because I believe
That after we’re gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying
I used to think death was the end
But that was before
I’m not scared anymore
I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still have to try

If I die tomorrow
I’d be allright
Because I believe
That after we’re gone
The spirit carries on

Victoria:
“Move on, be brave
Don’t weep at my grave
Because I am no longer here
But please never let
Your memory of me disappear”

Nicholas:
Safe in the light that surrounds me
Free of the fear and the pain
My questioning mind
Has helped me to find
The meaning in my life again
Victoria’s real
I finally feel
At peace with the girl in my dreams
And now that I’m here
It’s perfectly clear
I found out what all of this means

If I die tomorrow
I’d be allright
Because I believe
That after we’re gone
The spirit carries on

Dream Theater › Pull Me Under

Lost in the sky
Clouds roll by and I roll with them
Arrows fly
Seas increase and then fall again

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day sends future to past
Every breath leaves one less to my last

Watch the sparrow falling
Gives new meaning to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow then some other day

Ill take seven lives for one
And then my only fathers son
As sure as I ever did love him
I am not afraid

This world is spinning around me
The whole world keeps spinning around me
All life is future to past
Every breath leaves me one less to my last

Pull me under pull me under
Pull me under Im not afraid
All that I feel in honor and spite
All I can do is set it right

Dust fills my eyes
Clouds roll by and I roll with them
Centuries cry
Orders fly and I fall again

This world is spinning inside me
The whole world is spinning inside of me
Every day sends future to past
Every step brings me closer to my last

Pull me under pull me under
Pull me under Im not afraid
Living my life too much in in the sun
Only until your will is done

mgkin ga da band yg bisa membuat tehnik penulisan lagu seperti yg dilakukan DT….
Sampe2 sebuah morse “nugget” aja bsa masuk ke lagu In the name of god di album ToT. bner2 musisi yg sangat brilian.

Beberapa dari teknik mereka yang terkenal termasuk:
1.Suara dari fonograf di akhiran dari “Finally Free” di album Scenes from a Memory adalah suara yang sama di awalan “The Glass Prison” di album berikutnya, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

2.Satu dari melodi – melodi di “Metropolis Pt 1 (The Miracle and the Sleeper)” diulang di chorus kedua di “Home” dari Metropolis Pt 2 (Scenes From A Memory), dengan cuma pengubahan satu kata. Beberapa lirik dari “Metropolis Pt 1” just digunakan di “Home”. Pada dasarnya, keseluruhan album “Scenes From A Memory” penuh dengan musikal/lirikal/konseptual variasi dari elemen – elemen musikal dari “Metropolis Pt 1” dan “The Dance of Eternity” sebenarnya dibangun dari variasi – variasi elemen musik di lagu – lagu dalam album tersebut.

3.Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, studio album ke enam mereka, memuat enam lagu dan mempunyai karakter – karakter angka enam di judul – judul lagunya. Train of Thought, studio album ke tujuh mereka, memuat tujuh lagu. Octavarium, studio album ke delapan mereka memuat delapan lagu dan judul albumnya diambil dari kata octo, yang merupakan kata Latin yang berarti delapan, berarti satu oktaf dari istilah musik, yang mana merupakan jarak dari satu not ke not lain adalah delapan not di tangga nada diatonik. Judul lagi dari CD ini adalah 24 menit, kelipatan dari 8. Halaman depan albumnya juga memuat karakter – karakter yang berhubungan dengan 5 dan 8. Contohnya, satu set dari kotak – kotak putih dan kotak – kotak hitam, mempunyai arti satu oktaf dari piano.

4.Tiga bagian dari “The Glass Prison” di Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, dua bagian dari “This Dying Soul” di Train of Thought dan dua bagian dari “The Root of All Evil” di Octavarium menunjukkan tujuh poin pertama dari dua belas poin – poin di program Alcoholics Anonymous oleh Bill Wilson, yang mana program itu diikuti oleh Mike Portnoy. Ia juga berkata bahwa ia akan membuat lagu – lagu lain yang memuat lima program lainnya, yang akan ditujukan untuk Wilson

5.Chord akhir di album ke-6 (six degrees of inner turbulence) jadi awalan chord di album ke-7 (train of thought). chord akhir album ToT jadi awalan di album ke-8 (Octavarium).

6. Klo kita perhatikan tema musik/lagu “space-dye vest diulang beberapa kali di album awake.

saya kira memang pantas klo DT itu dibilang band yg sangat fenomenal.
Setuju?
