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...
