To Those in the Know

I love the new Dream Theater album! Black Clouds and Silver Linings is incredible! I was listening to it all morning and now I've got in on repeat in the office.



Freedom - calls my name
Serenity – keeps me sane
Happiness – it dulls the pain
Honor - to save my fate
Hoping - to run away
Willingness - to understand
Justice - for you not to judge
Courtesy – for all to start
Kindness – it's not that hard
Self-restraint – the self impaired
Inventory – my daily bread
Analysis - and then you're gone

Look in the mirror
What do you see?
The Shattered Fortress
That once burned me

Faithful ascent
Through darkest fires
I've found the path
To take me higher

You're smart enough
For me to trust
Go live your life now
Just keep these steps
In your life
And you'll know how

If you’re not sure
Ask yourself
"Have I done to them
As I would have them
Do to me?"

Look in the mirror
What's that you see?
The Shattered Fortress
Fly now, be free!

Faithful ascent
Through darkest fires
I've found the path
To take me higher

I once thought it better
To be right
But now I have finally seen the light
Sometimes you've got to be wrong
And learn from mistakes
I live with serenity now
Not self-righteous hate

(Help me be a channel of Thy peace
That where there is hatred, I may bring love
That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness
That where there is discord, I may bring harmony
That where there is error, I may bring truth
That where there is doubt, I may bring faith)

Now that you can see all you have done
(That were there is despair, I may bring hope
That were there is shadow, I may bring light)

It's time to take that step into the kingdom
(That were there is sadness, I may bring joy)

All your sins will help to make you strong
(That I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted
That I may seek to understand, rather than to be understood)

And help you break right through the prison wall
(That I may seek to love, rather than to be loved,
for it is by self-forgetting that one finds,
it is by forgiving that one is forgiven)

Keep all of me
The desires that once burned me deep inside
Help me live today
And help to give me grace
To carry out your ways

I am ready, help me be all I can be
I am ready, help guide me and keep me straight

I am responsible when anyone, anywhere
Reaches out for help, I want my hand to be there
I am responsible when anyone, anywhere
Reaches out for help, I want my hand to be there


Dream Theater so gets me.
