On The Back Of Angels

Dream Theater


Standing on the backs of angels,
Destined to create,
Mounting the attack,
While heroes carry a weight.

We spiral towards disaster,
Survival fading faster,

Riding out the wave,
Content to feed off the machine.
Bleeding 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.
Blurring lines drawn in between,
What is right and what is wrong,
Victims on parade are stringing us along.

We're on to your adgenda,
The dead are rotting nowhere.

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.

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.

Selfless are the righteous,
Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter.
