    6th Degree - Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence [42:04]
    music by Myung, Petrucci, Portnoy, Rudess


    I. OVERTURE [06:49]
    (instrumental)


    II. ABOUT TO CRASH - [lyrics by John Petrucci] [05:51]

    She can't stop pacing
    She never felt so alive
    Her thoughts are racing
    Set on overdrive

    It takes a village
    This she knows is true
    they're expecting her
    And she's got work to do

    He helplessly stands by
    It's meaningless to try
    As he rubs his red-rimmed eyes
    He says I've never seen her get this bad

    Even though she seems so high
    He knows that she can't fly
    and when she falls out of the sky
    He'll be standing by

    She was raised in a small midwestern town
    By a charming and eccentric loving father
    She was praised as the perfect teenage girl
    And everyone thought highly of her

    And she tried everyday
    With endless drive
    To make the grade
    Then one day
    She woke up to find
    The perfect girl
    Had lost her mind

    Once barely taking a break
    Now she sleeps the days away
    She helplessly stands by
    It's meaningless to try
    All she wants to do is cry
    No one ever knew she was so sad

    Cause even though she gets so high
    And thinks that she can fly
    She will fall out of the sky
    But in the face of misery
    She found hopefulness
    Feeling better
    She had weathered
    This depression

    Much to her advantage
    She resumed her frantic pace
    Boundless power
    Midnight hour
    She enjoyed the race


    III. WAR INSIDE MY HEAD - [lyrics by Mike Portnoy] [02:08]

    Napalm showers
    Showed the cowards
    We weren't there to mess around

    Through heat exhaustion
    And mind distortion
    A military victory mounted on innocent ground

    Hearing voices from miles away
    Saying things never said
    Seeing shadows in the light of the day
    Waging a war inside my head

    Years and years of
    Bloodshed and warfare
    Our mission was only to get in and kill

    A free vacation
    Of palmtrees and shrapnel
    Trading innocence for permanent psychotic hell

    Hearing voices from miles away
    Saying things never said
    Seeing shadows in the light of the day
    Waging a war inside my head

    Feeling strangers staring my way
    Reading minds never read
    Tasting danger with each word I say
    Waging a war inside my head


    IV. THE TEST THAT STUMPED THEM ALL - [lyrics by Mike Portnoy] [05:03]

    Standing in the darkness
    Waiting for the light
    The smell of pure adrenaline
    Burning in the night

    Random blinding flashes
    Aiming at the stage
    Intro tape begins to roll
    Igniting sonic rage

    Still they keep me between these hollow walls
    Hoping to find in me
    The answers to the test that stumped them all

    "The boy is simply crazy
    Suffering from delusions
    We honestly think that maybe
    He might need an institution

    He lives in a world of fiction
    And really could use some help
    We have just the place to fix him
    To save him from himself"

    Curled up in the darkness
    Searching for the light
    The smell of stale sweat and shit
    Streaming through the night

    Random urine testing
    Pills red, pink and blue
    Counseling and therapy
    Providing not a clue

    Still they keep me between these hollow walls
    Hoping to find in me
    The answers to the test that stumped them all

    "We can't seem to find the answers
    He seemed such a clear cut case
    We cannot just let him leave here
    And put all this work to waste

    Why don't we try shock treatment
    It really might do some help
    We have just the tools to fix him
    To save him from himself"


    V. GOODNIGHT KISS - [lyrics by Mike Portnoy] [06:17]

    Goodnight kiss in your nightgown
    Lavender in your bed
    So innocent as you lie down
    Sweet dreams that run through your head

    Are you lonely without Mommy's love?
    I want you to know I'd die for that moment
    You're just a poor girl
    Afraid of this cruel world
    Taken away from it all

    It's been 5 years to the day and
    My tainted blood's still the same
    I can't help acting this way and
    Those bastard doctors are gonna pay

    I'm so lonely without baby's love
    I want you to know I'd die for one more moment
    I'm just a poor girl
    Afraid of this cruel world
    Taken away from it all


    VI. SOLITARY SHELL - [lyrics by John Petrucci] [05:47]

    He seemed no different from the rest
    Just a healthy normal boy
    His mama always did her best
    And he was daddy's pride and joy

    He learned to walk and talk on time
    But never cared much to be held
    and steadily he would decline
    Into his solitary shell

    As a boy he was considered somewhat odd
    Kept to himself most of the time
    He would daydream in and out of his own world
    but in every other way he was fine

    He's a Monday morning lunatic
    Disturbed from time to time
    Lost within himself
    In his solitary shell

    A temporary catatonic
    Madman on occasion
    When will he break out
    Of his solitary shell

    He struggled to get through his day
    He was helplessly behind
    He poured himself onto the page
    Writing for hours at a time

    As a man he was a danger to himself
    Fearful and sad most of the time
    He was drifting in and out of sanity
    But in every other way he was fine

    He's a Monday morning lunatic
    Disturbed from time to time
    Lost within himself
    In his solitary shell

    A momentary maniac
    With casual delusions
    When will he be let out
    Of his solitary shell


    VII. ABOUT TO CRASH (REPRISE) - [lyrics by John Petrucci] [04:04]

    I'm alive again
    The darkness far behind me
    I'm invincible
    Despair will never find me

    I feel strong
    I've got a new sense of elation
    Boundless energy
    Euphoria fixation

    Still it's hard to just get by
    It seems so meaningless to try
    When all I want to do is cry
    Who would ever know I felt so sad

    Even though I get so high
    I know that I will never fly
    And when I fall out of the sky
    Who'll be standing by

    Will you be standing by


    VIII. LOSING TIME/GRAND FINALE - [lyrics by John Petrucci] [06:01]

    She dresses in black everyday
    She keeps her hair simple and plain
    She never wears makeup
    But no one would care if she did anyway

    She doesn't recall yesterday
    Faces seem twisted and strange
    But she always wakes up
    Only to find she'd been miles away

    Absence of awareness
    Losing time
    A lapse of perception
    Losing time

    Wanting to escape
    She had created a way to survive
    She learned to detach from herself
    A behavior that kept her alive

    Hope in the face of our human distress
    Helps us to understand the turbulence deep inside
    That takes hold of our lives
    Shame and disgrace over mental unrest
    Keeps us from saving those we love
    The grace within our hearts
    And the sorrow in our souls
    Deception of fame
    Vengeance of war
    Lives torn apart
    Losing oneself
    Spiraling down
    Feeling the walls closing in
    A journey to find
    The answers inside
    Our illusive mind
