On The Backs Of Angels

Dream Theater

ShareStanding on the backs of angels
Destined to create
Mounting the attack
While heroes carry (our?) weight

We spiral towards disaster
Survival fading faster

Riding out the wave
Content to feed off the machine
Leading 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

The lines drawn in between.
What is right and what is wrong
Victims on the radar
Straining us along

We're on to your agenda
The dead and (want to know where?)

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