Dream Theater

Oh.. such a great band..Just felt like letting you know there is a new song with the new drummer, Mike Mangini, which is by the way one of my top fav. drummers, thou there`s no REAL replacement for Portnoy, which is my idol.. but oh well
To the point, the song is really great and the drumming didn`t disappoint me one bit,I think Dream Theater could not find a better replacement than Mangini.
The Song


Standing on the backs of angels
Destined to create
Mounting the attack
While heroes carry your weight

We spiral towards disaster
Survival fading faster

Riding out the wave
Content to feed off the machine
Bleeding us to death
The new American dream

You're blinded by your hunger
Beware, your days are numbered
Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me,
Guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me,
Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Blurring lines drawn in between
What is right and what is wrong
Victims on the radar
String us along

We're on to your agenda
The dead end road to no where

Selfless are the righteous
Burden me
Lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Lyrics are great aswell (: Seems like A Dramatic Turn Of Events will be another great album :)

By the way, Today I finally finished learning the drums of Take The Time by Dream Theater! I`m so glad I`m finally done with it! this is the first progressive song I`ve learnt and I feel like it opened me to a whole new prespective of drumming. (:

Take The Time


"Hold it now...
wait a minute...
come on... whew..."

Just let me catch my breath...
I've heard the promises
I've seen the mistakes
I've had my fair share of tough breaks
I need a new voice, a new law, a new way
Take the time, reevaluate
It's time to pick up the pieces,
Go back to square one
I think it's time for a change

There is something that I feel
To be something that is real
I feel the heat within my mind
And craft new changes with my eyes
Giving freely wandering promises
A place with decisions I'll fashion
I won't waste another breath

You can feel the waves coming on
(It's time to take the time)
Let them destroy you or carry you on
(It's time to take the time)
You're fighting the weight of the world
But no one can save you this time
Close your eyes
You can find all you need in your mind

The unbroken spirit
Obscured and disquiet
Finds clearness this trial demands
And at the end of this day sighs an anxious relief
For the fortune lies still in his hands

If there's a pensive fear, a wasted year
A man must learn to cope
If his obsession's real,
Suppression that he feels must turn to hope

Life is no more assuring than love
(It's time to take the time)
There are no answers from voices above
(It's time to take the time)
You're fighting the weight of the world
And no one can save you this time
Close your eyes
You can find all that you need in your mind

I close my eyes
And feel the water rise around me
Drown the beat of time
Let my senses fall away
I can see much clearer now, I'm blind

"Ora che ho perso la vista,
Ci vedo di piĆ¹"


Find all you need in your mind
If you take the time
Find all you need in your mind
If you take the time

I can not wait for the 19th of this month, I will finally see them live, this is a dream coming true :)
