    Lyrics

    Since the new world order
    Played upon our fears
    Spreading accusations
    Of radical ideas

    The brotherhood of wisdom
    Strength and dignity
    Its rituals and secrets
    Remain a mystery

    Beneath an ever watchful eye
    The angels of the temple fly

    Turn the key
    Walk through the gate
    The great ascent
    To reach a higher state
    A rite of passage

    The final stage
    A sacred home
    Unlock the door
    And lay the cornerstone
    A rite of passage

    Men of wealth and power
    Influence and fame
    Philosophers and leaders
    Are members of the trade

    Bound by oath and honor
    Like the rose and cross
    An enigmatic union
    Of esoteric thought

    Beneath the ever watchful eye
    The angels of the temple fly

    Turn the key
    Walk through the gate
    The great ascent
    To reach a higher state
    A rite of passage

    The final stage
    A sacred home
    Unlock the door
    And lay the cornerstone
    A rite of passage

    Turn the key
    Walk through the gate
    The great ascent
    To reach a higher state
    A rite of passage

    The seven stars
    The rising sun
    A perfect world
    Where new life has begun
    A rite of passage

      such a kickass riff!! and great drumming by Portnoy. don't get me wrong, Mangini is a great drummer too, but with everything Mike Portnoy did, he was almost 60% of Dream Theater. with Portnoy they lost more than just a drummer. they also lost a great songwriter and lyricist. at least DT left a great legacy behind. i still can't get used to DT with Mangini. to me it sounds too much like a band that desparately tries to sounds like DT...

      My second favorite from this album. Oh how I'll miss Mike Portnoy in DT, though I am very curious what they're next album will sound like...
