The Killing Hand
(Music by Dream Theater, Lyrics by Petrucci)(8:40)
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?
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
Travelling all to find the land
Revelation warms a touch
And now, he will begin to
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
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?
Evil genius this secret plan
Mercy dealt with the losing hand
Will he ever fell?
Can he end it all?
Our savior must make his stand
Only a Prophet of years to co
Wanting mortality I'm all alone
He heard my voice
It was my choice
I've stopped the Killing Hand
When I go back again
Will it be the same?
