Teatro dos Sonhos

Dream Theater - A Change Of Season

I. The Crimson Sunrise [00:00](Instrumental)


II. Innocence [03:50]


I remember a time
My frail, virgin mind
watched the crimson sunrise
Imagined what it might find

Life was filled with wonder
I felt the warm wind blow
I must explore the boundaries
Transcend the depth of winter's snow

Innocence caressing me
I never felt so young before
There was so much life in me
Still I longed to search for more
But those days are gone now
Changed like a leaf on a tree
Blown away forever
Into the cool autumn breeze

The snow has now fallen
And my sun's not so bright
I struggle to hold on
With the last of my might
In my den of inequity
Viciousness and subtlety
Struggle to ease the pain
Struggle to find the sane

Ignorance surrounding me
I've never been so filled with fear
All my life's been drained from me
The end is drawing near...


III. Carpe Diem [06:54]


'Carpe diem, seize the day'

I'll always remember
The chill of November
The news of the fall
The sounds in the hall
The clock on the wall ticking away

'Seize the Day'
I heard him say
Life will not always be this way
Look around
Hear the sounds
Cherish your life while you're still around

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, [Sample is James Waterston from]
Old Time is still a-flying; [the film "Dead Poet's Society". ]
And this same flower that smiles today, [From the poem "To TheVirgins, To]
Tomorrow will be dying." [Make Much Of Time" by Robert ][Herrick. ]We can learn from the past
But those days are gone
We can hope for the future
But there might not be one
The words stuck in my mind
Alive from what I've learned
I have to seize the day
To home I returned

Preparing for her flight
I held with all my might
Fearing my deepest fright
She walked into the night
She turned for one last look
She looked me in the eye
I said, 'I Love You... Goodbye'

"It's the most awful thing you'll [Various samples mainly John]
ever hear." [Voight from the film "Table For ]
"If you're lying to me..." [Five", some are from the film ]
"Oh, you dearly love her." ["Dead Poet's Society". ]
"...just have to leave... all our lives."
"Seize the day!"
"Something happened."
"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may."
"She was killed."


IV. The Darkest of Winters [10:08](Instrumental)


V. Another World [13:01]


So far or so it seems
All is lost with nothing fulfilled
Off the pages and the T.V. screen
Another world where nothing's true

Tripping through the life fantastic
Lose a step and never get up
Left alone with a cold blank stare
I feel like giving up

I was blinded by a paradise
Utopia high in the sky
A dream that only drowned me
Deep in sorrow, wondering why

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what, don't let him be
Let's feed upon his misery
Then string him up for all the world to see
I'm sick of all you hypocrites
Holding me at bay
And I don't need your sympathy
To get me through the day

Seasons change and so can I
Hold on Boy, no time to cry
Untie these strings, I'm climbing down
I won't let them push me away
Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what, don't let him be
Let's feed upon his misery
Now it's time for them to deal with me


VI. The Inevitable Summer [16:59](Instrumental)


VII. The Crimson Sunset [20:12]


I'm much wiser now
A lifetime of memories
run through my head

They taught me how
For better or worse, alive or dead
I realize there's no turning back
Life goes on the offbeaten track
I sit down with my son
Set to see the Crimson Sunset
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)

Many years have come and gone
I've lived my life, but now must move on
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)

He's my only one
Now that my time has come
Now that my life is done
We look into the sun

"Seize the day and don't you cry,
Now it's time to say goodbye
Even though I'll be gone,
I will live on, live on."





Dream Theater - Tha Glass Prision

Cunning, Baffling, Powerful
Been beaten to a pulp
Vigorous, Irresistable
Sick and tired and laid low
Dominating, Invincible
Black-out, loss of control
Overwhelming, Unquenchable
I'm powerless, have to let go

I can't escape it
It leaves me frail and worn
Can no longer take it
Senses tattered and torn

Hopeless surrender
Obsession's got me beat
Losing the will to live
Admitting complete defeat

Fatal Descent
Spinning around
I've gone too far
To turn back round

Desperate attempt
Stop the progression
At any length
Lift this obsession

Crawling to my glass prison
A place where no one knows
My secret lonely world begins

So much safer here
A place where I can go
To forget about my daily sins

Life here in my glass prison
A place I once called home
Fall in nocturnal bliss again

Chasing a long lost friend
I no longer can control
Just waiting for this hopelessness to end

Run – fast from the wreckage of the past
A shattered glass prison wall behind me
Fight – past walking through the ashes
A distant oasis before me

Cry – desperate crawling on my knees
Begging God to please stop the insanity
Help me – I´m trying to believe
Stop wallowing in my own self pity

"We´ve been waiting for you my friend
The writing´s been on the wall
All it takes is a little faith
You know you´re the same as us all"

Help me – I can´t break out this prison all alone
Save me – I´m drowning and I´m hopeless on my own
Heal me – I can´t restore my sanity alone

Enter the door
Desperate
Fighting no more
Help me restore
To my sanity
At this temple of hope

I need to learn
Teach me how
Sorrow to burn
Help me return
To humanity
I´ll be fearless and thorough
The enter this temple of hope

Believe
Transcend the pain
Living the live
Humility
Opened my eyes
This new odyssey
Of rigorous honesty

Serenity
I never knew
Soundness of mind
Helped me to find
Courage the change
All the things that I can

"We´ll help you perform this miracle
But you must set your past free
You dug the hole, but you can´t bury your soul
Open your mind and you will see"

Help me – I can´t break out this prison all alone
Save me – I´m drowning and I´m hopeless on my own
Heal me – I can´t restore my sanity alone

Way off in the distance I saw the door
I tried to open
I tried forcing with all of my will but still
The door wouldn´t open

Unable to trust in my faith
I turned and walked away
I looked around, felt a chill in the air
Took my will and turned it over

The glass prison which once held me is gone
A long lost fortress
Armed only with liberty
And the key of my willingness

Fell down on my knees and prayed
"Thy will be done"
I turned around, saw a light shining through
The door was wide open

The carousel is spinning fast
better enjoy while it lasts
Every moment is like gold
you'll remember when you're old
And the meaning of this life
is to live and is to die
Make the best out of your dreams
they're the world where you are free
All the sorrow and the pain
will be washed away by rain
An eternal joy will come
it can be found by everyone
Though the end is drawing near
I'm not feeling any fear
I have found the truth inside
after all the tears I've cried

Season of Change...

Ah!
Eu já te disse o que achei!
Tudo profundo, intenso demais...
E tudo tão parecido com o que Monjh sente.

Beijos!
