Dream Theater — Metropolis lyrics

The smile of dawn, arrived during May
She carried a gift from her home
The night she'd 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 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 of 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, 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
