Innocence Faded

Album: Awake (1994)

  • Animation
    Breathes a cloudless mind
    Fascination
    Leaves the doubting blind
    Until the circle breaks and wisdom lies ahead
    The faithful live Awake
    The rest remain misled

    Some will transcend spinning years
    One as if time disappears

    Innocence faded
    The mirror falls behind you
    Trinity jaded
    I break down walls to find you

    Callow and vain
    Fixed like a fossil, shrouding pain
    Passionless stage
    Distant like brothers
    Wearing apathetic displays
    Sharing flesh like envy in cages
    Condescending
    Not intending to end

    Some will transcend spinning years
    One as if time disappears

    Innocence faded
    The mirror falls behind you
    Trinity jaded
    I break down walls to find you

    Beginnings get complicated
    The farther we progress
    Opinions are calculated
    Immune to openness

    Beyond the circle's edge
    We're driven by her blessings
    Forever hesitating
    Caught beneath the wheel

    Innocence faded
    The mirror falls behind you
    Cynically jaded
    The child will crawl to find you Writer/s: JOHN MYUNG, JOHN PETRUCCI, JOHN RO MYUNG, KEVIN F. MOORE, KEVIN JAMES LA BRIE, KEVIN JAMES LABRIE, MICHAEL PORTNOY
