Versuri Dream Theater - A Nightmare To Remember

Album: Dream Theater - Black Clouds And Silver Linings (2009)

A nightmare to remember
I'll never be the same
what began as laughter
So soon will turn to pain

The sky was clear and pretty
The air was quick and still
Now I'm not one to soon forget
And I'll bet I never will

Picked up for a moment
The perfect irony
A flawless new beginning
Eclipsed by tragedy

The uninvited stranger
Started dancing on his own
So we said goodbye to the growing pride
And we made our way back home

Life was so simple then
We were so innocent
Father and mother
Holding each other

Without warning out of nowhere
Like a bullet from the night
Crashing fast rubber and steel
Scorching fire glowing light

Screams of terror pain of fear
Sounds of silence smoke in my eyes
Silent stillness blackened silence
No more screaming no more cries

Starved and bewildered cold and afraid
Torn up and broken frightened and dazed
Starved and broken bewlidered

Lying on the table In some familiar place
I'm greeted by a stranger, A man without a face
He said "Son, do you remember, so you even know your name?"
Then he shined a light into my eyes and said "Take this for the pain"

Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony
I am endlessly falling lost in this wonderful misery
In peaceful sedation I may have a way
And all of the panic inside starts to fade
Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony

"Tell me does this hurt you" said the faceless man
"Can you move all of your fingers, can you try your best to stand?"
I asked about the others "Is everyone okay?"
He told me not to worry, as he turned and looked away

Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony
I am endlessly falling lost in this wonderful misery
In peaceful sedation I may have a way
And all of the panic inside starts to fade
Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony

Day after day, and night after night
We play out the events did they ever see the red light?
Over and over, scene by scene like a recolored nightmare haunted by dreams.
How can you prepare for what would happened next?
It's something that you have to see his father's such a mess
It's a miracle he lived it's a blessing no one died by the grace of god above everyone survived
Huh!!

Life was so simple then
We were so innocent
It will stay with us forever
A nightmare to remember
