Dream Theater – Endless Sacrifice lyrics

Cold Lying in my bed
Staring into darkness
Lost I hear footsteps overhead
And my thoughts return
Again Like a child who's run away
And won't be coming back
Time keeps passing by
As night turns into day

I'm so far away And so alone
I need to see your face
To keep me sane to make me whole

Try to stay alive
Until I hear your voice
I'm gonna lose my mind
Someone tell me why I chose this life
This superficial lie
Constant compromise
Endless sacrifice

Pain It saddens me to know
The helplessness you feel
Your light Shines on my soul
While a thousand candles Burn
Outside this barren room
The rain is pouring down
The emptiness inside Is growing deeper still

You're so far away
And so alone
You long for love's embrace
To keep you sane to make you whole

Try to stay alive
Until I hear your voice
I'm gonna lose my mind
Someone tell me why I chose this life
This superficial lie
Constant compromise
Endless sacrifice

Moments wasted
Isolated
Time escaping
Endless sacrifice

Moments wasted
Isolated
Time Escapting
Endless sacrifice

Over the distance
We try to make sense
Of surviving together
While living apart

Striving for balance
We rise to the challenge
Of staying connected
In spite of circumstance

All you've forsaken
And all that you've done
So that I could live out
This undying dream

Won't be forgotten
Or taken for granted
I'll always remember
Your endless sacrifice

Moments wasted
Isolated
Time escaping
Endless sacrifice Moments wasted Isolated
Time escaping Endless sacrifice

    The lyrics are by john petrucci, the guitarist, and I believe that they are his negative feelings about being on tour and being away from his wife and family. He is homesick and desperately misses his wife: "try to stay alive / until i hear your voice" "i'm so far away / and so alone / i need to see your face". He hates touring and expresses his regret about entering the music business: "someone tell me why i chose this life / this superficial lie". It is difficult for him to communicate with his wife: "we rise to the challenge / of staying connected / despite the circumstance". By the end of the song he is less angry with himself and he is grateful for his wife's sacrifices to his musical career: "all you've forsaken ... This undying dream"
