Dream Theater  

Posted by: Meredith

I Love Dream Theater. If you have never heard of them, you should check them out. They are a New York based Progressive Rock band. Some of their music is a bit hard, but the talent of this group is over whelming. Each member apart of the group is fantastic and that makes for one of the best bands of all time.

While wasting time here at work because the boss is out of town, the song "Take Away My Pain" from Once in a LIVEtime on my Ipod. This song is not heavy by any means. The sound is comforting and the lyrics are moving.

Here are the lyrics written by John Petrucci the lead guitarist of Dream Theater:

- John Petrucci

I was sitting on the edge of his bed
Staring at the headlines on the paper
He said, 'Look at poor Gene Kelly
I guess he won't be singing in the rain.'
You can take away my heroes
Can you take away my pain

Take away my pain
Leave the cold outside
Please don't let it rain
Don't stumble on my pride
Take away my pain
I'm not frightened anymore
Just stay with me tonight
I'm tired of this fight
Soon I'll be knocking at your door

She was standing by the edge of his bed
Staring at the message on their faces
He said, 'What else can you do, babe?
I guess I won't be coming home again.'
They just took away all my promises
Make them take away my pain

Take away my pain
Leave the cold outside
Please don't let it rain
Don't stumble on my pride
Take away my pain
I'm not frightened anymore
Just stay with me tonight
I'm tired of this fight
Soon I'll be knocking at your door

His final scene
The actor bows
And all those years
Are gone somehow
The crowd applauds
The curtain falls

I was standing by the edge of the water
I noticed my reflection in the waves
Then I saw you looking back at me
And I knew that for a moment
You were calling out my name
You took away my hero
Will you take away my pain

Take away my pain
Let the cold inside
It's time to let it rain
There's nothing left to hide
Take away my pain
I'm not frightened anymore
I'm learning to survive
Without you in my life
Til you come knocking at my door...(Crown of thorns in my side)
Drawing lines in the sand
