Dream Theater – The Test That Stumped Them All (Live)


Not as good without Mike but still amazing…

Artist: Dream Theater
Album: Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
Year: 2002

Lyrics:
Standing in the darkness
Waiting for the light
The smell of pure adrenaline
Burning in the night
Random blinding flashes
Aiming at the stage
Intro tape begins to roll
Igniting sonic rage
Still they keep me between these hollow walls
Hoping to find in me
The answers to the test that stumped them all
The boy is simply crazy
Suffering from delusions
We honestly think that maybe
He might need an institution
He lives in a world of fiction
And really could use some help
We have just the place to fix him
To save him from himself
Curled up in the darkness
Searching for the light
The smell of stale sweat and shit
Streaming through the night
Random urine testing
Pills red, pink and blue
Counseling and therapy
Providing not a clue
Still they keep me between these hollow walls
Hoping to find in me
The answers to the test that stumped them all
We can’t seem to find the answers
He seemed such a clear cut case
We cannot just let him leave here
And put all this work to waste
Why don’t we try shock treatment
It really might do some help
We have just the tools to fix him
To save him from himself
