On the backs of angels..


.. well, here it is.. fresh off the new album from Dream Theater with new drummer Mike Mangini.. i’ve been listening to the album for a few days now.. it sounds perfect, efficient, powerfull.. just like Dream Theater should.. but my personal oppinion is that they lost their touch, their feeling, the innovative spirit that was Mike Portnoy.. it doesn’t sound the same and maybe it wasn’t supposed to.. although it seems six of the tracks are just interpretations/orchestrations of older tracks off “Images and Words“.. this band is drifting away from me.. hope you like it.. rock on..

later..

Dream Theater – On the Backs of Angels

Standing on the backs of angels
Destined to create
Mounting the attack
While heroes carry your 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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/d/dream_theater/on_the_backs_of_angels.html ]
Blurring lines drawn in between
What is right and what is wrong
Victims on the radar string us along

We’re on to your agenda
The dead end road to 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
