Dream Theater – A New Beginning Lyrics

[Faythe]
Father, I implore you
Don’t believe a word
He is not the enemy
That is just absurd

You may see his talent
As some kind of threat
But I know we were meant to be
From the day we met

Give us both a chance
For a new beginning
Nothing would mean more to me

He is just a man
Can’t you show him mercy
Sympathy and strength go hand in hand

[Emperor Nefaryus]
This man’s a fraud and a hoax
He’ll only shatter your hopes
Saddest of all is to watch how you fall
For this person who you hardly know

[Faythe]
Ignorant, stubborn
You have no respect
Not just for her flesh and blood
That I knew you’d protect

Listen without judgement
Keep an open mind
If you cannot see the truth
You’re the one who’s blind

We don’t stand a chance
That is his opinion
Mother, can you talk to him?

Try to understand
How they must be feeling
Misery’s to know what might have been

[Emperor Nefaryus]
Why would I ever concede
To listen to this fool?
How can you be so naive?
You must be living in a world of make-believe
Do you really think this charlatan is who he claims to be?

[Empress Arabelle]
Not long ago there was a time and place
You too possessed the same desires as Faythe
You knew how it felt to feel invisible
Music calmed your soul, just like a drug
Remember, Bug?

[Faythe]
Father is it true
Bug was always you?
Finally I can reveal
How music makes me feel

Now you understand
Why I was hiding
This changes everything

I would like a chance
For a new beginning
In the end the final word is with me

[Instrumental]
