Epic Rock Ballads-Episode 5:Queensryche-Silent Lucidity

Not just an epic ballad, but THE ballad. Well at least in my opinion, however, I am a bit bias when it comes to Queensryche, especially from the time when Geoff Tate was still the lead vocalist.

Lyrics
Hush now, don’t you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You’re lying safe in bed


It was all a bad dream spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you, leaving the game of life


So here it is, another chance
Wide awake you face the day, your dream is over
Or has it just begun?


There’s a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run to in the night
Relax child, you were there


Only didn’t realize, and you were scared
It’s a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the years


And ride the whims of your mind
Commanding in another world
Suddenly you’ll hear and see


This magic, new dimension
I will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through


I will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you
In silent lucidity


Visualize your dream (yes)
Record it in the present tense
Put it into a permanent form (yes)


If you persist in your efforts, you can achieve dream control (help me)
How are we feeling today, better?


Dream control (help me)
Dream control (help me)
Dream control (help me)
Dream control (help me)


If you open your mind for me
You won’t rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within


Come tumbling down and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You’re safe from pain in the dream domain


A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize


Your dream’s alive, you can be the guide but
I will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through


I will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you
