01. Wither

Music & lyrics by John Petrucci
Let it out, let it out
Feel the empty space
So insecure, find the words and let it out
Staring down, staring down
Nothing comes to mind
Find the place, turn the water into wine

But I feel I'm getting nowhere
And I'll never see the end

So I wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear
I break down and let the story guide me

Turn it on, turn it on
Let the feelings flow
Close your eyes and see the ones you used to know
Open up, open up
Don't struggle to relate
Lure it out, help the memory escape

Still this barrenness consumes me
And I feel like giving up

So I wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear
I break down and let the story guide me
I wither and give myself away

Like reflections on the page
The worlds which you create

I drown in hesitation, my words come crashing down
And all my best creations, burn into the ground
The thought of starting over, leaves me paralyzed
Tear it out again, another one that got away

Wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear

I wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear
I break down and let the story guide me
I wither and give myself away

Like reflections on the page
The worlds which you create

Let it out, let it out

Lyrics by John Petrucci
Let it out, let it out
Feel the empty space
So insecure, find the words and let it out
Staring down, staring down
Nothing comes to mind
Find the place, turn the water into wine

But I feel I'm getting nowhere
And I'll never see the end

So I wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear
I break down and let the story guide me

Turn it on, turn it on
Let the feelings flow
Close your eyes and see the ones you used to know
Open up, open up
Don't struggle to relate
Lure it out, help the memory escape

Still this barrenness consumes me
And I feel like giving up

So I wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear
I break down and let the story guide me
I wither and give myself away

Like reflections on the page
The worlds which you create

I drown in hesitation, my words come crashing down
And all my best creations, burn into the ground
The thought of starting over, leaves me paralyzed
Tear it out again, another one that got away

Wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear

I wither and render myself helpless
I give in and everything is clear
I break down and let the story guide me
I wither and give myself away

Like reflections on the page
The worlds which you create

Let it out, let it out
