Dream Theater - Ravenskill Lyrics




[Narrator:]
Morning breaks beyond the night
And she's a world away
Through crowded streets
This quiet, hooded stranger makes her way

[Faythe:]
Please, excuse me
Sir, can you help me?
Where can I find this man?

[Townsperson:]
Sorry, can't speak
Someone is waiting

[Faythe:]
Yes, I understand

[Narrator:]
As her will
Starts to fade
And all but disappears

Like a ghost
Suddenly a boy is standing there
And all is clear

[Faythe:]
I'm your friend
Trust me, don't be scared
I am looking for your father and I promise
I can help
Now take my hand
We haven't time to spare

[Narrator:]
Hopeful and innocent
Sensing no danger
He sees humanity
Behind the stranger's eyes

Her true identity
Will be revealed when she sheds her disguise

[Faythe:]
My intentions are faithful
There's a chance we can still end this game
I'd be forever grateful
To see him once again

[Arhys:]
You dare to stand
Before my eyes
You're one of them
Why would I trust you?

[Faythe:]
It's not like that
I can't go back
Hope fades away
With each passing second

Lost in this moment
Is where I want to stay
This can't be broken
We need to find a way
Gabriel

I would wait a lifetime
Just to see your face
But all we have is one more day

[Gabriel:]
I remember your father was moved by my song
I know when he's sees we're united that he'll understand
We will walk this road together
We will face this hand in hand

With music and love on our side, we can't lose this fight
Tomorrow, our dreams come alive

  3. André F

    So good to read all these compliments to James!

  4. Jan-Ove Pedersen

    We have operas, musicals, rock operas and then we have The Astonishing a true Progressive Metal Opera. This is what the classic great ones would sound like if they lived today.

  5. frank alfar

    Wow this tune is 🔥 of the mind . A GIGANTIC SONG!!! grand and powerful and the ending part with all the accents in the Myung w Mangini are some masterful arranging. Btw this whole album is begging to be a production of either the big screen or on Broadway. Wow just WOW 😮.

  6. Glasgow Kiss

    4:55 - 6:02 . This is absolutely beautiful :(

  7. Vmf Doank

    Stunning sing of labrie...

  9. Tommy Danzi

    Anybody else getting Careless Whisper vibes at 2:45? Incredible song though!

  10. John

    The beginning of this song really reminds me of Spirited Away

  11. Fábio Christóforo

    PHENOMENAL song! Gosh!

  12. Johnny S4J

    4:55 - 5:43 ABBA´s "The winner takes it all" moment...! :\

  20. Kevin Maurer

    "for this one we need to re-write Fatal Tragedy, but without all the things that make Fatal Tragedy awesome"

    Kevin Maurer

    "also there aren't enough ballads on this album.. we need at least twenty. put one at the end."

  21. Joachim Ruud

    So good!

    Gave me goosebumps multiple times :)

    Joachim Ruud

    After listening to this song a couple of times I must say this is Dream Theater's best song so far!

    Masterpiece!!!

  22. Dave Millet

    There are some good songs on this album, this one included, but as a whole the album's....well, boring. It all sounds the same to me.

  23. Manuel

    I see why people dont like this... but myself enjoyed it a lot, this is beautiful! Jordan your piano always makes me happy and LaBrie, your voice always calms me!

  24. Ayman Hazim

    wow... what an astonishing dt

  25. Bookie

    gives me 3 vibes :
    - Kingdom Hearts
    - FF
    - Octavarium

    Rubem Evangelista

    Six Degrees and Scenes too

  26. Gilang Iwanoski

    john guitar sounds like Chocolate cake

    João Mauricio

    Gilang Iwanoski chocolate in my ears sounds quite messy.

    01 11

    The best kind of chocolate cake

  27. Vito Indarto

    This song reminds me of one of dream theaters old song,"Surrounded"

  28. Deathwindow Production

  29. JThrashYT

    4:37 far from heaven

  30. Kristof Szobacsi

    The moment where DT's masterpieces become cleary driven by that PIANO! The whole band moves like a gigantic piano, it's SO BEAUTIFUL!!! LOVE DT!! :D

  31. Júlio Tocheto

    4:12 to 4:55 Words cannot describe.

  32. Nathan Lewis

    Astonishing album! i do admit, however, that this is the first song i tell ppl about to introduce them to this band. 6 minutes of many elements and shows the band from several angles

  33. SoaD

    Their new album is nice!

  34. ひかり

    One of the best part of the album

  35. Valerio B

    one of best part of album : 3:03 - 3:14

  36. Guilherme Lunardi

    🤘🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼🤘🏼

  37. Rebecca Ashley Peiffer

    "I'm your friend, trust me don't be scared...now take my hand, we haven't time to speak." Faythe, why do you go out of your way to sound like a child abductor in this song? XD

    Rebecca Ashley Peiffer

    That does make it slightly less creepy. Misheard Dream Theater lyrics ftw!

  38. Tom Little

    This is by far the worst fucking album DT has ever produced. Fuck me. I cringe at every second.

  39. Cardinal Copia drinks coffee near Eiffel Tower

    Astonishing indeed. DT never fails to impress. Got the album haha \m/

  40. kstarheel5150

    A rock Les Mis... love it. such a talented band. theatrical, powerful.

    Lyrics:

    Morning breaks beyond the night,
    And she's worlds away.
    Through crowded streets,
    This quiet hooded stranger makes her way.

  45. Koopa Prince

    One of my favs

  46. Robert Goolsby

    one up for the DREAM

  47. 4hundred life

    You dare to stand before my eyes, you're one of them why would i trust you? Dedicated to all haters of the world (and no, my reaction would'nt be the same in that case)

  48. DT FAN MATT

    The times changes in song are astonishing!

  49. Ryan Slater

    I'm in love with this album

  50. Kruza CZ

    2:10 This is best moment in this song!!!

  51. Michael Duckworth

    Probably my most favorite song thus far

  52. Fabrizio CARENA

    Piano totally throws me back to Heroes of Might and Magic 2...

  53. Soniferous

    5:08 sounds like "I know when he sees we're an item..." It would make sense.

  54. Sam De Paepe

    My personal favourite of the album :).

  55. Daniel Verberne

    I LOVE the mix on this track. So atmospheric and such creative effects, very haunting.

  56. Metal Dude

    TWO WORDS
    DREAM THEATER!!!!!

  57. Glenn Matthews

    Best song of The Astonishing in my opinion

  58. Ratanon

    1:37 The Carpenter's Close to you?

  59. Raphael Brandão

    4:03 omg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  60. Mimix2048

    One of the best on the album...

  61. Brian Skinner

    "I remember your Father was MOOOOVED by my song"

  62. Logan Ali

    all of this debacle wouldnt happen if nafaryus give the ravenskill universal healthcare...
    evangeline would survive and they will happily ever after
    for heaven sakes..learn from bernie sanders man

    João Mauricio

    They need to build a wall. An Mexico will pay for it.

    Logan Ali

    +João Mauricio lol. nice

    Daniel Verberne

    +Sodiq Ali Hilarious!

    POUIUIHUGGF

    Yes cause everything just magically costs nothing like no one will be paying for it

  63. Daniel Rodrigues

    Influência de Claude Debussy... Dream Theater = Perfeito!!!!!

  64. progvincent

    4:01 - James soft voice with Jordans melancholic piano, this must be what heaven sounds like <3

  65. Daniel Verberne

    James LaBrie, you are a stunning singer.

    HypoCr1tikal

    +Daniel Verberne at the concert in arizona he couldnt sing the higher pitches so he just screamed. I felt bad for him. Age maked it harder for him to sing higher notes

    The Ravenskill Rebel Militia

    With pitch correction and many different takes comped together. Live tells the real story.

    Andrea Kisser

    and you only a lol comentator

    Otisnemes

    Look! the Official Dream Theater hater!!!

    Cuzjudd

    I heart James so much

  66. Dana Weintraub

  67. DRW1107

    6:00 - insert About to Crash...

  68. John Dyda

    Beautiful - no other band could make an album like this!

    Denice Bautista

    Avantasia makes albums along these lines but not really progressive like DT

  69. Stacey cross

    I love this album so much

  70. Fernando V

    1:22 most beautiful part

  71. Péter Gábor

    Love this song! 2:10 that transition sounds amazing from soft nice melody to epic!

  73. roolee2k

    hate the part "Please, excuse me
    Sir, can you help me?"

  74. AliothSenator

    "Please, excuse me
    Sir, can you help me?
    Where can I find this man?
    Sorry, can’t speak, someone is waiting
    Yes, I understand"
    The epitome of poetry right here.

  75. MyChannel

    Breathtaking.

  76. Dedi Andrianto Kurniawan

    Now this is a song!

  77. MOONFLOW

    Joe Hisaishi vibes

  78. Leyrann

    Nobody's can imagine D.T.without you my friend!!Keep your sword high,and may the Lords of Light will be always with you!!!

  80. Olivia Littlefield

    Very Dream like, everything that defines this band musically is right here on this track in my opinion :)

  81. Sean Ashe

    One of my favorites from the new album. The eerie piano at the beginning is so nice

  82. 명순홍

    Dream Theater.... After having some hits, they are so good at presenting nothing but just extracting their filler tracks in their
    even-in-itself-fruitless discography.

    +명순홍 oh, you are still here? stupidos

    명순홍

    @Rosen Grigorov What a choice of words... fits your identity as a pathetic beggar perfectly... If you wanna get my additional give alms keep begging here.

    +명순홍 What the hell are you expecting? Please enlighten us.

    Music will do...

  83. Niko Peñailillo

    Lost in this moment
    Is where i want to stay.....

    MattySOP

    +Niko Peñailillo Love that part

    Freezing Moon

    +Niko Peñailillo The music is so perfect I can see Faythe and Gabriel gazing at each other. It's a feeling only Dream Theater music can ever make me experience. I can't get enough of this album..

    Rubem Evangelista

    That part is what makes me love When Your Time Has Come so much. Glad I can hear it here too.

    Hugorrr

    shivers

  84. Ivan Kuvaldin

    Best song for me. amazing wokr of JL. Thanks!

  85. Nico Oli

    This album is so Final Fantasy..and I fucking love it! Hope to see u guys some day in a show in Argentina..

  86. brazwen

    James Labrie is the most improved musician on this album.

    brazwen

    @Ryan Slater Did I say he was bad? No, I didn't say he was bad. Improved as he has gotten better than his previous works which was already great. You people jumping to conclusions are pathetic. 

    Luke P

    +Ryan Slater "on a studio album". Try listening to some of those live performances after the food poisoning incident. Not his fault but his voice definitely took a long while to heal.

    What the Fuck Did you Say ?

    Well I don't give a fuck what anybody says, critical or not, labrie is a legend

    Jordan Kelso

    Just sayin I saw them on the Astonishing tour, and I can personally tell you that LaBrie can't nail the notes that well live and when he does the words aren't very enunciated. Don't get me wrong I still loved every second of it, but it was a bit rough at times.

    Barry Dompor

    7 characters or he beat 7 vocalists?

  87. Gabriel Cavalcante

    Only me or you can see Muse's influence on this song too?

    Pretty cool!

    MrBluesboy21

    +Gabriel Cavalcante Only you.

    Gabriel Cavalcante

    @MrBluesboy21 They have alot of Muse inffluence on his carrer. I don't know if they have here.

    MrBluesboy21

    +Gabriel Cavalcante You´re right but only because Portnoy liked Muse, In my opinion Muse is far, very far behind D.T. in any aspect. It´s only because I don´t like that band at all.

  88. Cristopher Giagoupian

    One of the best songs of the album in my opinion. Fucking amazing. Here are the lyrics, to enjoy it even more. Can't wait to see you guys in Argentina again.

  89. Adriano Ribeiro

    My favorite so far, so beautiful! Tons of good taste in this record.

  90. AceofMetal

    Is that a computer doing a great job in recreating LaBrie's voice?

    oldGnRrocks1

    +AceofMetal labrie just messes around live. takes it more serious in studio.

    João Mauricio

    Takes more auto tune you mean.

  91. Vilma Parenicova

    definitely one of my favourite from TA ! L-O-V-E I-T !!!

  92. SCHNICK SCHNACK

    I am 13 and I really love this music
