A Nightmare To Remember

Dream Theater

Black Clouds & Silver Linings


A nightmare to remember
I'd never be the same
What began as laughter
So soon would turn into pain

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

Picture 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 glowing bride
And we need 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
Crushing glass, rubber and steel
Scorching fire, glowing lights

Screams of terror, pain and fear
Sound of sirens, smoke in my eyes
Sudden stillness, blackened silence
No more screaming, no more cries

Stunned and bewildered
Cold and afraid
Torn up and broken
Frightened and dazed

Lying on the table
In this unfamiliar place
I'm greeted by a stranger
A man without a face

He said "Son, do you remember?"
"Do 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 lay half awake
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 ok?"
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 lay half awake
And all of the panic inside starts to fade
Hopelessly drifting
Bathing in beautiful agony

Day after day
And night after night
Replaying the events
Did they ever see the red light?
Over and over
Scene by scene
Like a recurring nightmare
Haunting my dreams

How can you prepare
For what would happen next?
No son should ever have to see his father in such a mess
It's a miracle he lived
It's a blessing no one died
By the grace of God above
Everyone survived

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