The Gift Of Music

  • Far in the distant future
    Beyond the pages of our time
    Cold-blooded wicked tyrants
    Threaten the freedom of mankind
    Corruption, lust, and greed
    Define the new nobility
    Changing the course of history

    Across the vast North Empire
    Most people struggle to survive
    Living a meek existence
    Where they're secludedly oppressed

    We are living day-to-day
    Forced to bear the lion's share
    People just don't have the time for music anymore
    But no one seems to care

    My friends have seen the chosen one
    Our quest for freedom has begun
    He will be the answer to our prayers

    There walks a god among us
    Who's seen the writing on the wall
    He is the revolution
    He'll be the one to save us all

    My brother Gabriel
    Is all the hope we need
    Shining like a beacon in the night
    Shed light on Ravenskill
    A reason to believe
    Music is the gift he brings
    The songbird stops and listens when he sings Writer/s: JOHN PETRUCCI, JORDAN RUDESS
