    23 dakikalık Rock Senfonisi...inişlerle çıkışlarla kalbimizde yer etmiş, dream theater'ın efsaneleşmesine büyük katkıda bulunmuş, yarmış şarkı.

    ayrıca; içinde led zeppelin'den achilles' last stand ve de deep purple'dan perfect strangers coverlarını barındırmakta olan albümdür. hele bi de "big medley" var ki akıllara zarar. 5 şarkının birleşimi 10 küsür dakikalık, içinde "in the flesh?"(pink floyd) ve de "bohemian rhapsody"(queen) barındırdığını hatırladığım yarmış bir şarkı o da...

    sözlerini de yazalım, tam olsun.

    [I. The Crimson Sunrise]

    [Instrumental]

    [II. Innocence]

    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 same

    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]

    "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)
    (Old Time is still a-flying;)
    (And this same flower that smiles today)
    (Tomorrow will be dying")

    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...
    Good-bye"

    ("It's the most awful thing you'll ever hear")
    ("If you're lying to me...")
    ("Oh, you dearly love her")
    ("...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]

    [Instrumental]

    [V. Another World]

    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
    Your 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]

    [Instrumental]

    [VII. The Crimson Sunset]

    I'm much wiser now
    A lifetime of memories
    Run though 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 good-bye
    Even though
    I'll be gone
    I will live on
    Live on"

    ara sıra dalıp gitmeye sebep olan,sonra bir şekilde uyandırıp tempo tutturtan,ardından "nasıl yapmışlar ya" diye sorup kafa kaşıtan ama hangi bölümü ya da hangi notasını dinlerseniz dinleyin hayatınızın bir ucundan yakalayan,kendi içinizde yolculuğa çıkarmaya yeminliymiş gibi çalınan/söylenen dt şaheseri.Hayatınızdan çıkamayan bir nesne.**

    hayatimda dinledigim en guzel $arkilar listesi yapacak olsam rahatca top 10 yapabilecek bir $arkidir bu. her kisminda kendinizi farkli hissedersiniz, $arkinin ruh hali surekli degi$kenlik gosterir. mutluyken mutsuz, mutsuzken mutlu yapar insani. dengesiz bir insansaniz dinlemeyin derim, ozellikle ikizler burcu insanlari uzak dursun.
