I. Someo­ne Like Him (0:00 ‒ 8:47)

Lyrics: John Petruc­ci

I never wan­ted to beco­me someo­ne like him so secu­re
Con­tent to live each day just like the last
I was sure I knew that
This was not for me
And I wan­ted so much more
Far bey­ond what I could see
So I swo­re that I’d
Never be someo­ne like him

So many years have pas­sed
Sin­ce I pro­c­lai­med
My inde­pen­dence
My mis­si­on
My aim
And my visi­on
So secu­re
Con­tent to live each day like it’s my last
It’s won­der­ful to know
That I could be
Some­thing more than what I drea­med
Far bey­ond what I could see
Still I swe­ar that I’m
Mis­sing out this time

As far as I could tell
There’s not­hing more I need
But still I ask mys­elf
Could this be ever­y­thing
Then all I swo­re
That I would never be was now
So sud­den­ly
The only thing
I wan­ted
To beco­me
To be someo­ne just like him

II. Medi­ca­te (Awa­ke­n­ing)] [8:48 ‒ 13:49]

Lyrics: James LaB­rie

A Doc­tor sit­ting next to me
He asks me how I feel
Not sure I under­stand his ques­tio­n­ing
He says I’ve been away a while
But thinks he has cured me
From a sta­te of cata­to­nic sleep

For 30 years
Whe­re have I been
Eyes open
But not get­ting through to me

Medi­ca­te me
Infil­tra­te me
Side effects appe­ar
As my con­sci­ence slips away

Medi­ca­te me
Sci­ence fai­ling
Con­sci­ence fading fast
Can’t you stop what’s hap­pe­ning

A hig­her dosa­ge he pre­scri­bes
But there’s no gua­ran­tee
I feel it star­ting to take over me
I tell him not to be asha­med
There’s no one who’s to bla­me
A second shot
A brief awa­ke­n­ing

I feel the rel­ap­se
Can’t break free
Eyes open
But not get­ting through to me

III. Full Cir­cle [13:50 – 16:36]

Lyrics: Mike Port­noy

Sai­ling on the seven sei­ze the day trip­per diem’s ready
Jack the rip­per Owens Wil­son Phil­lips and my supper’s ready
Lucy in the sky with dia­mond Dave’s not here I come to save the
Day for night­ma­re cine­ma show me the way to get back home again

Run­ning for­ward
Fal­ling back
Spin­ning round and round
Loo­king out­ward
Reaching in
Scream without a sound

Lea­ning over
Craw­ling up
Stumb­ling all around
Losing my place
Only to find I’ve come full cir­cle

Fly­ing off the hand­le be care­ful with
That axe Euge­ne gene the dance machi­ne
Mes­siah light my fire gab­ba gab­ba
Hey hey my my generation’s home again

Run­ning for­ward
Fal­ling back
Spin­ning round and round
Loo­king out­ward
Reaching in
Scream without a sound

Lea­ning over
Craw­ling up
Stumb­ling all around
Losing my place
Only to find I’ve come full cir­cle

IV. Inter­vals [16:37 – 19:53]

Lyrics: Mike Port­noy

[Root]
Our dead­ly sins feel his mor­tal wrath
Remo­ve all obsta­cles from our path

[Second]
Asking ques­ti­ons
Search for clues
The answer’s been right in front of you

[Third]
Try to break through
Long to con­nect
Fall on deaf ears and fai­led mut­ed bre­ath

[Fourth]
Loyal­ty, trust, faith and desi­re
Car­ri­es love through each dar­kest fire

[Fifth]
Tor­tu­red Insa­ni­ty
A smo­the­ring hell
Try to escape but no avail

[Sixth]
The calls of admi­rers
Who claim they ado­re
Drain all your life­b­lood while begging for more

[Seventh]
Inno­cent vic­tims of mer­ci­less cri­mes
Fall prey to some madmen’s impul­si­ve designs

[Octa­ve]
Step after step
We try con­trol­ling our fate
When we final­ly start living it has beco­me too late

Trap­ped insi­de this Octa­va­ri­um
Trap­ped insi­de this Octa­va­ri­um
Trap­ped insi­de this Octa­va­ri­um
Trap­ped insi­de this Octa­va­ri­um

V. Auf des Mes­sers Schnei­de [19:54 ‒ 24:00]

Lyrics: John Petruc­ci

We move in cir­cles
Balan­ced all the while
On a gle­a­ming razor’s edge

A per­fect sphe­re
Col­li­ding with our fate
This sto­ry ends whe­re it began
