The Root of All Evil
Album : Octavarium (2005)

VI. Ready

Proud enough for you to call me arrogant
Greedy enough to be labeled a thief
Angry enough for me to go and hurt a man
Cruel enough for me to feel no grief

Never could have just a part of it
I always need more to get by
Getting right down to the heart of it
The root of all evil has been running my whole life

Dirty enough for me to lust
Leaving nothing left to trust
Jealous enough to still feel envious
Lazy enough to sleep all day
And let my life just waste away
Selfish enough to make you wait for me

Driven blindly by our sins
Misled si easily
Entirely ready to leave it behind
I'm begging to break free

Take all of me
The desires that keep burning deep inside
Cast them all away
And help to give me strengh to face another day
I am ready
Help me be waht i can be

VII. Remove

Self-centered fear has got a hold of me
Clutching my throat
Self righteous anger running all trought me
Ready to explode

Procastination paralyzing me
Wanting me dead
These obsessions that keep haunting me
Won't leave my head

Help to do for me waht i can't do myself
Take this fear and pain
I can't break out this prison all alone
Help me break these chains

Humility now my only hope
Won't you take all of me
Heal this dying soul

I can feel my body breaking
I can feel my body breaking
I'm ready to let it all go
I can feel my body shaking
Right down to the foundation
The root of all evil

Take all of me
And the drive that keep burning deep inside
Cast it all away
And ehlp to give me strengh to face another day
I am ready
Help me be what i can be
I am ready
Come to me
Take me awayback to top
The Answer Lies Within
Album : Octavarium (2005)

Look around
Where do you belong
Don't be afraid
You're not the only one

Don't let the day go by
Don't let it end
Don't let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within

Life is short
So learn from you mistakes
And stand behind
The choices that you make

Face each day
With both eyes open wide
And try to give
Don't keep it all inside

Don't let the day go by
Don't let it end
Don't let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within

You've got the futur on your side
You're gonna be fine now
I know whatever you decide
You're gonna shine

Don't let the day go by
Don't let it end
Don't let a day go by in doubt
You're ready to begin
Don't let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies withinback to top
These Walls
Album : Octavarium (2005)

This is so hard for me
To find the words to say
My thoughts are standing still

Captive inside of me
All emotions start to hide
And nothing's getting throught

Watch me
Fading
I'm losing
All my instincts
Falling into darkness

Tear down these walls for me
Stop me from going under
You are the only one who knows
I'm holding back

It's not too late for me
To keep from sinkin further
I'm trying to find my way out
Tear down these walls for me now

So much uncertainty
I don't like this feeling
I'm sinking like a stone

Each time I try to speak
There's a voice I'm hearing
And it changes everything

Watch me
Crwal from
The wreckage
Of my silence
Conversation
Failing

Tear down these walls for me
Stop me from going under
You are the only one who knows
I'm holding back

It's not too late for me
To keep from sinkin further
I'm trying to find my way out
Tear down these walls

Every time you choose to turn away
Is it worth the price you pay
Is there someone who will wait for you
One more time
One more time

Watch me
Fading
I'm losing
All my instincts
Falling into darkness

Tear down these walls for me
Stop me from going under
You are the only one who knows
I'm holding back

It's not too late for me
To keep from sinkin further
I'm trying to find my way out
Tear down these walls for me now

Tear down these walls for me now
It's not too late for me
Tear down these walls for me nowback to top
I Walk Beside You
There's a story in your eyes
I can see the hurt behind your smile
For every sign I recognize
Another one escape me

Let me know what plagues your mind
Let me be the one to know you best
Be the one to hold you up
When you feel like you're sinking

Tell me once again
What's beneath the pain you're feeling
Don't abandon me
Or think you can't saved

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Summon up your ghosts for me
Rest your tired thoughts upon my hands
Step inside sacred place
When all your dreams seem broken

Resonate inside the temple
Let me be the one who understands
Be the one to carry you
When you can walk no further

Tell me once again
What's below the surface bleeding
If you've lost your way
I will take you in

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Oh when everything is wrong
Oh when hopelessness surrounds you
Oh the sun will rise again
The tide you swim against will carry you back home
So don't give up
Don't give it

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside youback to top
Panic Attack
Album : Octavarium (2005)

All wound up
On the edge
Terrified

Sleep disturbed
Restless mind
Petrified

Bouts of fear
Permeate
All I see

Heightening
Nervousness
Threatens me

I am paralyzed
So afraid to die

Caught off guard
Warning signs
Never show

Tension strikes
Choking me
Worries grow

Why do I feel so numb
Is it something to do with where I come from
Should this be fight to flight
I don't know why I'm constatly so uptight

Rapid heartbeat pounding through my chest
Agitated body in distress
I feel like I'm in danger
Daily life is strangled by my stress

A stifling surge
Shooting throught all my veins
Extreme apprehension
Suddenly i'm insane

Lost all hope for redemption
A grave situation desperate at best

Why do I feel so numb
Is it something to do with where I come from
Should this be fight to flight
I don't know why I'm constatly reeling

Helpless hysteria
A flase sense of urgency
Trapped in my phobia
Possessed by anxiety

Run
Try to hide
Overwhelmed by this complex delerium

Helpless hysteria
A false sense of urgency
Trapped in my phobia
Possessed bu anxiety

Run
Try to hide
Overwhelmed by this complex deleriumback to top
Never Enough
Cut myself wide
Reach inside
Help yourself
To all I have to give
And then you help yourself again
And then complain that
You didn't like the way
I put the knife in wrong
You didn't like the way
My blood spilled on your brand new floor

What would you say
If I walked away
Would you appreciate
But then it'd be too late
Because I can only take so much of your ungrateful ways
Everything is never enough

Sacrifice my life
Neglect my kids and wife
All for you to be happy
All those sleepless nights
And countless fights to give you more
And then you say how dare that
I didn't write you back
I must be too good for you
I only care about myself

What would you say
If I walked away
Would you appreciate
But then it'd be too late
Because I can only take so much of your ungrateful ways
Everything is never enoughback to top
Sacrificed Sons
Walls are closing
Anxiously
Channel Surfing
Frantically

Burning City
Smoke and fire
Planes we're certain
Faith inspired

No clues
A complete surprise
Who'll be
Coming home tonight

Heads all turning
Towards the sky
Towers crumble
Heroes die

Who would wish this on
On our people
And proclaim
That His will be done
Scriptures they heed mave misled them
All praise their sacrificed sons

Teach them
What to think and feel
Your ways
So enlightening

Words they preach
I can't relate
If God's true Love
Are acts of Hate

God on High
Our mistake
Will mankind be extinct
There's no time to waste
Who serves the truth
For Heaven's sakeback to top
Octavarium
NOTE: These lyrics are only about 95% done. When the song starts to
get really heavy, it's difficult to make out the lyrics at times.
Hopefully, someone can step up and fill in the blanks at the end of
the song. Also, the "Sailing on the seven seas, the day tripper
(???)" part lists a lot of bands or musical influences of whichever
member penned this song (I'm thinking Portnoy), some of which I'm
unfamiliar with, so it made it hard for me to pick it out.
-------------------------------------------------------------------


I never wanted to become someone like him
So secure; content to live each day just like the last
I was sure I knew that this was not for me
And I wanted so much more
Far beyond what I could see
So I swore that I'd never be someone like him

So many years have passed since I proclaimed my independence
My mission, my aim, and my vision, so secure
Content to live each day like it's my last
It's wonderful to know that I could be
Something more than what I dreamed
Far beyond what I could see
Still I swear that I'm
Missing out this time

As far as I could tell
There's nothing more I need
But still I ask myself
Could this be everything
That all I swore that I would never be
What now, so suddenly, the only thing I wanted
To become
To be someone just like him

A doctor sitting next to me
He asks me how I feel
I'm not sure I understand his questioning
He says I've been away a while
He thinks he has cured me
From a state of catatonic sleep

For thirty years, where have i been
Eyes open but not getting through to me

Medicate me
Infiltrate me
Side effects appear as my conscience slips away
Medicate me
Science failing
Conscience fading fast
Can't you stop what's happening

A higher dosage he prescribes, but there's no guarantee
I feel it's starting to take over me
Tell him not to be ashamed
There's no one who's to blame
A second shot of reawakening

I feel the relapse can't break free
Eyes open but not getting through to me

Medicate me
Infiltrate me
Side effects appear as my conscience slips away
Medicate me
Science failing
Conscience fading fast
Can't you stop what's happening

Sailing on the seven seas, the day tripper (???)
Jack the ripper, (???) Wilson, Phillips and my (???)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds, days not here (???)
(???) Nightmare cinema showed me the way to get back home again

(Lunging forward, falling back)
Spinning round and round
(Looking now, picture it)?
Scream without a sound
(Lunging forward, crawling up)
Stumbling all around
(Losing my face only to)
Find I've come full circle

Flying off the handle, looking forward
???? dance machine
Messiah, light my fire, gabba gabba hey
My generation so my...?

(Lunging forward, falling back)
Spinning round and round
(Looking now, picture it)?
Scream without a sound
(Lunging forward, crawling up)
Stumbling all around
(Losing my face only to)
Find I've come full circle

(FIRST)
Our deadly sins fill this mortal realm
Remove all obstacles from our path
(SECOND)
Asking questions, search for truth
The answer's been right in front of you
(THIRD)
Try to break through, long to connect
Fall on deaf ears with fail, muted breath
(FOURTH)
Loyalty, trust, faith in messiah
Carries above through each darkest fire
(FIFTH)
Tortured insanity, smoking hell
Try to escape to no avail
(SIXTH)
Closet admirers, claim they adore
Drain all the lifeblood, begging for more
(SEVENTH)
??? and phantoms, unmerciless crimes
??? madness, ??? design
(EIGHTH)
??? ????
