Dream Theater – Answering The Call Lyrics

White walls
Glisten
Empire’s
Crimson
Aching within
Raging fires

Sovereign
Asphyxiate
No Conscience
A sullen state
Misguide
Indoctrinate
Accepted
Long held views

When will there be a day when all of us
Trust that love and peace
Burns bright for us?

When will the long held truths be cast aside?
Embrace our fellow man
No longer vilified

Radiant we’ll shine
Heart and soul one mind

Illuminating all
Answering the call

Decisions
By which to act
Programmed
No turning back
Called upon
A switch turned on
An ultimate price to pay

Weeping
But it’s too late to cry
Hold the truth
Can’t ignore the lie
Time to look it in the eye

When will there be a day when all of us
Trust in knowing love and peace?

When will the long held truths be cast aside?
Embrace our fellow man
No longer vilified

Radiant we’ll shine
Heart and soul one mind

Illuminating all
Answering the call

Fight or flight both threatening
Hidden thoughts are deafening
Your guilt feeding the flame

Tearful knowing it’s a lie
Zion might just pass you by
Rituals your funeral pyre

Scars you can erase
If you choose to face
There is beauty in us all

Walk the higher ground
There you will be found
The writing’s on the wall
Will you wager your life?

Radiant we’ll shine
Heart and soul one mind

Walk the higher ground
There you will be found

Illuminating all
Answering the call
Answering the call
