    Morning comes too early
    And nighttime falls too late
    And sometimes all I want to do is wait
    The shadow I've been hiding in
    Has fled from me today

    I know it's easier
    To walk away than look it in the eye
    But I will raise a shelter to the sky
    And here beneath this star tonight I'll lie
    She will slowly yield the light
    As I awaken from the longest night

    Dreams are shaking
    Set sirens waking up tired eyes
    With the light the memories all rush into his head
    By a candle stands a mirror
    Of his heart and soul she dances
    She was dancing through the night above his bed
    And walking to the window
    He throws the shutters out against the wall
    And from an ivory tower hears her call
    "Let light surround you"

    It's been a long, long time
    He's had a while to think it over
    In the end he only sees the change
    Light to dark
    Dark to light
    Light to dark
    Dark to light

    Heaven must be more than this
    When angels waken with a kiss
    Sacred hearts won't take the pain
    But mine will never be the same
    He stands before the window
    His shadow slowly fading from the wall
    And from an ivory tower hears her call
    "Let the light surround you"

    Once lost but I was found
    When I heard the stained glass shatter all around me
    I sent the spirits tumbling down the hill
    But I will hold this one on high above me still
    She whispers words to clear my mind
    I once could see but now at last I'm blind

    I know it's easier
    To walk away than look it in the eye
    But I had given all than I could take
    And now I've only habits left to break
    Tonight I'll still be lying here
    Surrounded in all the light

      great keyboard playing again. very emotional, like most of Kevin Moore's playing. i guess Jordan Rudess can play the technical stuff (almost) as well, but he doesn't know how to play with feeling... too bad...

      good thing we still have the albums with Kevin Moore and Mike Portnoy!! this was their best line-up ever!!

      I think this song is about a priest or holy man who has been contemplating the difference between heaven and hell for many years. He comes to realize the only difference is between light and darkness. The song plays out his realization and, ultimately, his decesion.
