the killing hand

lethe lethe
dream theater'in ilk albümünün 4. şarkısı live at the marquee albümünde de yer almıştır.

i. the observance
an angel's kiss now fallen
descending scarlet cuts the sky
faded names left on the wall
honor the fighting leave life to die
remembered is the sacrifice but
no praisal of blood still flowing
who were the leaders?
what controlled the killing hand
that caused this mourning?
crossing over...

ii. ancient renewal
lowered deep into the sea
being awaits to cleanse his soul
senses weakening time is still
motionless by stiffening cold

the wheels race back and
scorch his mind
traveling all to find the land
revelation warms a touch
and now, he will begin to
understand

iii. the stray seed
extended a view to yesterday
manifestation for none the same
walking amidst a frightening still
no sound, no smoke, no scorching
flames
he is risen...

sipping his poison the raven sings
yet another to add more bodies fallen
king from below
this one controls
the killing hand that caused this mourning.
is it all over?
is it all over?

iv. thorns
evil genius this secret plan
mercy dealt with the losing hand
will he ever fall?
can he end it all?
our savior must make his stand.

only a prophet of years to come
wanting mortality i'm all alone
he heard my voice
it was my choice
i've stopped the killing hand.

v. exodus
when i go back again
will it be the same?
i've stopped the cries
but now they know my name

the sea is calling me
my spirit must return
as i get closer,
was it really worth
what i have learned?

i'm in the valley
and the saddened chimes i hear
race toward the wall to find
one more name appears.

no one is left now
my one and only land
i laugh at what i've done
i am the killing hand.

dream theater'ın when dream and day unite albümünden bir parça.charlie dominici'nin söylediği albüm kaydı biraz kulak hırpalasa da,live at the marque konser kaydında bu parçayı james labrie nin kadife sesinden dinleme fırsatı bularak hevesimizi alıyoruz.sözler petruccinin toy delikanlıyken okuduğu alacakarlık hikayelerinden esinlenerek yazdığı bir hikaye anlatımıdır.
horny meydan horny meydan
petrucci o kadar duygusuz ki, çılgın ve detone opera şarkıcısı labrie ile birlikte bu şarkının solosunda çok vasat işler başarmış yine. ama gönlüm razı olmadı, bir buçuk saatlik konserin o bölümünü ayarlayıp hazırladım, siz piçler, yavuşaklar, allahın belaları için tam solo kısmına getirdim!! izleyin ve ibret alın amucuklar. şerefsiz, kaslı ve duygusuz petrucci vs yavşağın dölü, geberesice, detone labrie. heh.
