Gives Me the Chills! (but In a Good Way...)

Queensryche... Silent Lucidity?  My brother (who is also one of my best friends on earth... I mean, c'mon?  Who ELSE knows what we went thru together as kids?  Who'd believe it if we told 'em?) turned me on to it.  We had just lost our Dad... a dude we both loved but, you know... had mixed feelings about cuz of our bizarrre childhood.  Of course, he LAUGHED when I CRIED about it... but that's just cuz he knows he's always been my mentor when it comes to "controlling emotions"... even if I know full well he's fakin' it.  Oh, and maybe because... well, certain "indulgences", shall we say, that we (& a couple of friends who were with us)  shared just before listening to it... This is for you, Bro.... Love you.... (though he'll never see this) 

"Silent Lucidity" by Queensryche 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 through in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize it 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 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

If you open your mind for me
You wont rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You7re 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 dreams 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... in silent lucidity

  (Love u 2, Dad.....Mom... sisters.... friends.... so many who have made the journey already)

Wow. Thanks for the lyrics. I love this song but hadn't heard it in so long. <br />
<br />
I never realized how this song would have help me face my mother's untimely death so early in my life.

I love these lyrics: "......and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make......" <br />
<br />
and<br />
<br />
"to live a love, you got to give a love, <br />
to give a love, you gotta be part of,<br />
when will I see you again?"

Yes! I think I'm gonna put it in my will that they should play that at my funeral.
