Dream Theater - Act Of Faythe Lyrics




[Faythe:]
I never knew they spent their days in rags
While I enjoy the life they'll never have
Yet deep within their eyes
Hope still survives
And they don't seem to think this world's so bad

Even as they gather in the square
They know a better life exists out there
With unity and pride
Faith stays alive
How can I pretend that I don't care?

I have always felt alone
Living like a stranger inside of my own home
Maybe now's the time to greet the winds of change
Could my destiny
Be right in front of me?

As a child behind the palace walls
Often times I'd search its secret halls
And, hoping I would find
A treasure cast aside
I came upon the greatest gift of all

My music player
My private paradise
My music player
A refuge I must hide

Been lost at sea forever
Adrift and far away
Now, finally, for the first time
I know I found my way

Dream Theater Act Of Faythe Comments
  1. Irfan Maulana

    Seperti hidup jika melihat matanya

  2. Syvy Sarvida

    I think Elize Ryd should cover this song because she sings like Faythe
    And also, I like the Final Fantasy XIII and XV feeling about true love relationship between Snow and Serah, and Noctis and Lunafreya

  3. Atika Salma

    This song is so dramatical,.. I like it... I hears every night

  4. Michael_S_K

    so _this_ is where the midwest soccer moms get their baby names from

  5. James Nguyen

    I love this song. However, it does sound too much like a Disney song.

  6. Anwesh Bhattacharya

    Blackfield's X-ray anyone?

  7. Juanma Blanc

    MY MUSIC PLAYER?!?

  8. nenaluna1971

    it's magic. I love the whole album

  9. EXTRA JERKY

    I feel like the beginning samples a lot from Davy Jones's theme

  10. Isaac Peretz

    The pink hair tho... Does Petrucci secretly loves anime?

  11. Luiz

    Linda música!!!

  12. arpan das

    wherever you are and whatever mood you have, you can listen to this.

  13. Gpenk sniper

    😢😢😢😢😢 ea ngerti artine tapi sg jelas nyesek dengerny😢😢😢

    EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

    FAYTHE
    I never knew they spent their days in rags
    While I enjoy the life they'll never have
    Yet deep within their eyes
    Hope still survives
    And they don't seem to think this world's so bad

    Even as they gather in the square
    They know a better life exists out there
    With unity and pride
    Faith stays alive
    How can I pretend that I don't care?

    I have always felt alone
    Living like a stranger inside of my own home
    Maybe now's the time to greet the wings of change
    Could my destiny
    Be right in front of me?

    As a child behind the palace walls
    Often times I'd search its secret halls
    And hoping I would find
    A treasure cast aside
    I came upon the greatest gift of all

    My music player
    My private paradise
    My music player
    A refuge I must hide

    Been lost at sea forever
    Adrift and far away
    Now finally for the first time
    I know I found my way

  15. Tarby's Basement

    I believe I can flyyyyyyyyyyyy
    I believe I can touch the skyyyyyyyyyy

  16. Matheus Silva

    Parece com Elton John grande influência.

  17. Raini'n Tears

    james labrie's is the angel disguised as a metal band vocalist

    carl reynolds

    Sure seems like it. James' soft vocal so soothing

  18. Pizza Faythe

    WUT??? WHOA HOLY CRAP SOMETHING ELSE WITH FAITH SPELLED FAYTHE LIKE I SPELL IT!!!!

  19. Black Orchid

    😥😥😍👏👏👏 Thank you for your music and your voice, Jams !!!!!!! 💖

  20. Himel Syed

    I can smell a story through this song
    What a composition
    Salute and thanks DT for giving us this music scenario

  21. Percy William

    This song is SUPER CHEEEEESY, what a pity is listening to DT!!

  22. Filippo Stoppa

    Nice girl

  23. The Ravenskill Rebel Militia

    The Crapstonishing
    The Asstonishing
    The Appstonishing
    The Asspunishing
    The Moronishing
    The Boronishing
    The Aspbergershing

  24. Jane thor

    Mike portnoy is missing.Without him music sucks

    I Dunno

    Okay, maybe you shouldn't be biased

  25. RIFF DT

    ฟังเพลงนี้ทีไร ขนลุกทุกที

  26. WawwaEngxxa

    When I listened this songs I had to remember you AYAH 😢

  27. Adam Ibrahim

    who is the girl name ??

  28. Ivanyi Attila

    The last 800 view is me!

  29. John Miller

    Top  5 Best Rock Band ever.

    Doru Saur

    John Miller if you take them individualy,by one,then certainly nr.1.

  30. Jackson Teller

    Faythe looks like Amanda Seyfried

    Andrew Wilson

    She's way hotter than Amanda Seyfried. Amanda has bug eyes and is kind of ugly imo

  31. Thiago Rigatto

    That riff before; ' My music Player, my private paradise... ' is awesome! a scale with guitar and keyboard! perfect!!!

  32. Shafin Nahian

    Gosh,it literally sounds like the Meaning of Tears!

  33. bagas saputra

    may be they owe some melodies from @ananghermansyah and @krisdayanti

  34. Hendra Karunia

    wow, so much similarity with Kim Jang Woo~The Meaning Of Tears ( Ost Doctor Stranger, 2014).
    any idea?

    Poltak Arif

    "Tuhan bila masih ku diberi kesempatan
    Ijinkan aku untuk mencintanya.." by Glenn Fredly - Sekali Ini Saja

    Doru Saur

    Kim Jong-Un?

  35. BarronBrothersFilms

    I really love this song. I think whenever Labrie sings as Faythe he really shines. But does anyone else think the music player part is cringe worthy?

    Olivia Leto

    kinda killed the vibe

    AncientAndMysterious

    Now that I'm more familiar with the story, I can see how it makes sense, and it doesn't really bother me too much to listen to it. I try to empathize with what her life would be like in a world like DT has envisioned, and I can see how amazing a music player would be. Even so, as someone living in the here and now, I can't quite overcome how silly it sounds. The way they wrote that part makes it sound childish. There's an art to writing lyrics, and normally DT is pretty good, but those lines just don't work very well.

    Olivia Leto

    ^rt i just learned about the actual song and it makes sense now but it kinda seems thrown together

    Matias Sagredo Miranda

    AncientAndMysterious it would have worked much better if the name of the device were lost in time and replaced with something more solemn

    Christopher Parks

    Yeah, kind of falls into that, "Three hours of music, gotta make this part work" kinda vein. Notwithstanding, an "astonishing" piece of work DT. You go guys.

  36. Leonardo C

    mmmm .. she looks like amanda seyfried...

  37. Guilherme Lunardi

    Maravilhosa musica.

  38. uul kamal

    kerenn..

  39. eka rahmat

    gratis..

  40. alexandre Ribeiro Silveira

    I love this amazing masterpiece

  41. Renan Castelar

    This is a real masterpiece

  42. ひかり

    I love this song

  43. Red Cap

    they should have posted a small description of the story for each song, this thing should be a movie or a game, oh shit!, it actually is :v

  44. bompf

    A horribly cheesy song on an almost entirely forgettable album.

  45. Matt W

    Hmm...the part from 0:54 to 1:05 REALLY reminds me of part of the melody from Martin Luther's "A Mighty Fortress is our God". Anybody else hear it?

  46. José Sepúlveda

    4:13
    The random Strange Dejavu part

  47. Anders Lund Covers

    I hope they will release an instrumental version of this song. I would really like to make a vocal cover :)

    I drifted far away

    Now finally for the first time I know
    I've found my way
    Found my way

  49. Niko Peñailillo

    First time i listen this song i think "it's kinda cheesy" and not so much armonic complex and technical...but know i think this is one of the most beautiful songs i ever heard.

    ThankYou Dream Theater.

  50. Marconi Broadcast

    Endo Foury Lovenda

  55. Carlos Pereda

    4:28 till the end is just... aaahhh...

  56. Deltazar Manci

    And what is this?? Keane? Dream theater pop band

  57. Las Desventuras de Virus

    I find Faythe portrait a bit disturbing.

    hquwhjher

    +Las Desventuras de Virus Not your fault, she stares at your soul if you stare at her for a while. Like a quote from Nietzsche.

  58. Teruki Chan

    Lyrics:

    And hope that I would find
    A treasure cast aside
    I came upon the greatest gift of all

    A whole new world
    A new fantastic point of view
    No one to tell us no or where to go
    Or say we're only dreaming

  59. Jimbo Diamantis

    Kinda FFXIII-2 music!!! reminds me of it a lot!! and Faythe reminds me of lightning a bit!! am i the only one?

  60. たにを

    ハンパない! メロディーにしても、ラブリエの歌声にしても美しすぎる!
    このアルバムで1番好きです。

  61. Hellscr333m

    Wow... a first. A DT record that I really dislike through and through... and I really find myself missing Mike Portney. Thanks for trying guys. Maybe next time.

  62. Daniel Verberne

    I love DT's metal side and love a good head-banging like anyone, but I love the softer side of DT, with beautiful melodies, atmospheric, almost cinematic themes.... This is a great track. I also love the evocative choral ending ... Rudess really shines on this album. I mean, all the band do ... but Rudess....

  63. Mas Wied

    The astonishing is masterpiece album

  64. Stacey cross

    I cherish this album

  65. Otacilio Amato

    my muuuusic playeeeer!! *___________*

  66. Bebe Rachmat

    what a song 😭😭😭

  67. Flebus Margera

    the worst track of act 1...

  68. Logan Ali

    why the pink hair tho...did petrucci secretly likes hentai?

    Candra Abdurrahman

    +Sodiq Ali wkwkwkwk

    The Pho Eater

    Another thing he wanks

    SEiMEi

    No he likes normal Anime I guess

  69. Imam Syauqani

    I love the intro :)

  70. Zhang JiaJun

    This song is sick !

  71. Holger Hetschko

    Uauaua - that cheesy Rudess violins. Enough! Enough!
    Love you guys though ...

    Risto Salonen

    +H. Hetschko Prague philharmonic orchestra, actually

    Holger Hetschko

    +Risto Salonen Hi Risto. Technically yes, hower, the composition (and the cheese) is from Jordan Rudess, isn't it?

    Risto Salonen

    Orchestral arrangements are credited to David Campbell. But yeah, Rudess probably wrote the base.

  72. Niccolò M.

    I hope this album is just a warm up for Metropolis part 3...

    Otacilio Amato

    +Niccolò Mineo you didn't like it? :O
    i'm a fan since the frist album, and i loved this album very much.

    Loadry

    +Niccolò Mineo This album IS Metropolis Pt. 3 ;)

  77. MrThat0neperson

    Oh look it's the girl from Delain's "We Are the Others" album cover.

  78. śï×ÕfŇîņē

    Brilliant.. wow!!

  79. Metal Militia

    She looks like Amanda Seyfried...

    Jolo Rubia

    +Metal Militia yea i agree with you, i noticed it also. Its best if Amanda Seyfried will Embody her Character when this album becomes a movie.

  80. umkalzum

    who writes these same sounding boring tunes???? rudess leave the band for petes sake

  81. Nat Julian Belza

    That piano intro phrasing reminds me of "Anna Lee" from the album Falling into Infinity.

  82. Tony Ridgway

    Holy Shit this intro is incredible. shit about brought tears to my eyes lol

  83. MANSINI

    One word for this whole album...MATURITY.

  84. Khorshad Shazib

    they always saves the day, dream is destiny

  85. Nico Oli

  86. kyo cyruz

    Alejandro Bedoya

  87. betobareto1

    COISA LINDA..!!! ( child smile)

  88. Cristopher Giagoupian

    Del 1 al 10, ¿qué tan cursi es el hecho de que las melodías de esta canción sean una de mis preferidas de todo el disco? Cuando cierro el video tengo que ir corriendo a poner death metal para sentirme hombre nuevamente...

    betobareto1

    +Neo Z nada..ser hombre tambien es ser sensible por una bella mujer

  89. Marcos Strapazon

    Another great work! these guys must be never forgotten. They've done an impressive contribution to the musical scenario.

  90. Pyramidaz P.

    mv please!!! make it like hollow years

  91. Sam Duggan

    I miss Portnoy :(

    Ricardo Gadelha

    I don't.

    betobareto1

    +Sam Duggan noooooooo

    Bagus Wicaksono

  93. Ishika Nura

    so this the most peacefully DT song ever! \m/

  94. Tetsu Shatarii

    I love how different all of these have sounded from each other. You guys just don't know how to dissapoint do you?

    fajar adi Pradana

    Maybe ...
    Just maybe ...
    34 song on an album. Somebody maybe thinks it's too much. Why not 10 of 15-25 minutes song instead. Maybe tho ...

  95. lukalukaluka7000

    am I the only one who think that intro is pretty much similar to platoon soundtrack .. fabulous..

  96. Metal Dude

    Doesn't 2:53 - 3:00 sound like the laughing in pink Floyd's brain damage but childish. Anyway this is a very beautiful album and this song is one of my favorites. Good job dream theater you never made music that was awful. All your songs is beautiful, heavy, and amazing. That's why your my favorite band. I wonder if y'all are going to make a movie for your tour like live at Luna park ( a dramatic turn of events) and breaking the fourth wall ( self titled album) if you do im gonna get it.

    Mattia Caravella

    +Metal Dude heavy? This album?? What did you listen to? Or am I just misunderstanding you?

    Metal Dude

    @Mattia Caravella I didn't mean all their songs

    John Dyda

    +Metal Dude with you all the way mate! Beautiful stuff! It's not all about heaviness! Love the mix!!!!

  97. Artfull Malang

    very deep.

  98. Aozora

    I chuckled when I finally realized the earbuds.
