This Dying Soul

Album: Train Of Thought (2003)
  • Hello, mirror,so glad to see you my friend, it's been a while
    Searching, fearless,where do I begin to heal this wound of self-denial

    Face yourself man!
    Brace yourself and trace your hell back

    You've been blinded, living lie a one way cold existence all the while
    Now it's time to stare the problem right between the eyes you long lost child

    I wanna feel your body breaking
    Wanna feel your body breaking and shaking and left in the cold
    I want to heal your conscience making a change to fix this dying soul

    Born into this world a broken home
    Surrounded by love yet all alone
    Forced into a life that's split in two
    A mother and a father both pulling you

    Then you had to deal with loss and death
    Everybody thinking they know best
    Coping with this shit at such an age
    Can only fill a kid with pain and rage

    Family disease pumped through your blood
    Never had the chance you thought you could
    Running all the while with no escape
    Turning all that pain in to blame and hate

    Living on your own by twenty one
    Not a single care and having fun
    Consuming all the life in front of you
    Burning out the fuse and smoking the residue

    Possessive obsessions selfish childish games
    Vengeful resentments
    Passing all the blame
    Living out a life of decadence
    Acing without thought of consequence
    Spreading all your lies from coast to coast
    While spitting on the ones that matter most

    Running power mad with no control
    Fighting for the credit they once stole
    No one can ever tell you what to do
    Ruling other's lives while the can't stand the thought of you

    A living reflection seen from miles away
    A hopeless affliction having run astray

    I wanna feel your body breaking
    Wanna feel your body breaking and shaking and left in the cold
    I want to heal your conscience making a change to fix this dying soul

    Now that you can see all you have done
    It's time to take that step into the kingdom
    All your sins will only make you strong
    And help you break right through the prison wall

    Come to me my friend (Listen to me)
    I'll help this torture end (Help to set me free)
    Let your ego go (I can't carry this load)
    You can't go through this alone (I feel so hopeless and exposed)
    You'll find your peace of mind (Give me some direction)
    You can no longer hide (Break out of this isolation)
    Let humility (Openness, honesty)
    And become what you can be (A healing tranquility)

    Help me
    Save me
    Heal me
    I can't break out of this prison all alone

    These tormenting ghosts of yesterday
    Will vanish when exposed
    You can't hold onto your secrets
    They'll only send you back alone

    Your fearless admissions
    Will help expel your destructive obsessions
    With my help I know you can
    Be at one with God and man

    Hear me
    Believe me
    Take me
    I'm ready to break right through this prison wall Writer/s: JOHN MYUNG, JOHN PETRUCCI, JOHN RO MYUNG, JORDAN RUDESS, JORDAN CHARLES RUDESS, MICHAEL PORTNOY
