Dream Theater – Shattered Fortress lyrics

Freedom - Calls my name
Serenity – Keeps me sane
Happiness – It does the pain
Honor - To see my prays
Open - To run away
Willingness - To understand
Justice - What do you judge?
Courtesy
Kindness – It's not that hard
Self-restraint (Suffer-strain?) – Recalling me
Inventory – My daily friend
Analysis - And then your god you're gone

Look in the mirror
What do you see?
The Shattered Fortress
That once burned me

Faithful ascent
Through darkest fires
I've found the path
To take me higher

You're smart enough
For me to trust
To live your life now
Just keep these steps
In your life
And you'll know how

If you're not sure
Ask yourself
Have I done to them
As I would have them
Do to me

Look in the mirror
What's that you see?
The Shattered Fortress
Fly now, be free!

Faithful ascent
Through darkest fires
I've found the path
To take me higher

I once thought it better
To be right
But now I have finally seen the light
Sometimes you've got to be wrong
And learn from mistakes
I live with serenity now
Not self-righteous hate

Now that you can see all you have done
It's time to take that step into the kingdom
All your sins will help to make you strong
And help you break right through the prison wall

Keep all of me
The desires that once burned me deep inside
Help me live today
And help to give me grace
To carry out your ways

I am ready
Help me be all I can be
I am ready
Help guide me
And keep me straight

I am responsible
When anyone, anywhere
Reaches out for help
I want my hand to be there
I am responsible
When anyone, anywhere
Reaches out for help
I want my hand to be there
