Fatal Tragedy

Lyrics by: John Myung
Music by: Dream Theater
Notes: In this song, Nicholas finds out the house he's been dreaming of is real, and he goes there. He meets an old man who tells him that a young girl was murdered there, but won't give up any other information. Nicholas now knows that Victoria was a real person and is determined to find out what happened to her. They Hypnotherapist acknowledges that Nicholas was formerly Victoria, and they delve deeper to find out how she died. In the original version of this song, the first two verses were not part of this song, but they were part of Through My Words. Right before "I shut the door..." was a verse taken out saying "I sense the need....to try and clarify my memories....my quest begins today"


[Nicholas:]
Alone at night
I feel so strange
I need to find
All the answers to my dreams

When I sleep at night
I hear the cries
What does this mean?

I shut the door and traveled to another home
I met an older amn, he seemed to be alone
I felt that I could trust him
He talked to me that night;

"Lad did you know a girl was murdered here?"
"This fatal tragedy was talked about for years"
Victoria`s gone forever
Only memories remain
She passed away
She was so young

Without love
Without truth
There can be nothing back

Without faith
Without hope
There can be no peace of mind

As the night went on
I started to find my way
I learned about a tragedy
A mystery still today

I tried to get more answers
But he said, "You`re on your own"
Then he turned away and left me
As I stand there all alone
He said, "You`ll know the truth
As your future days unfold"

Without love
Without truth
There can be nothing back

Without faith
Without hope
There can be no peace of mind

[Hypnotherapist:]
"Now it`s time to see how you died. Remember that death is not the end but
only a transition."
