A Vision is a song by Dream Theater(Then known as Majesty). It was the third song on the original six-track Majesty Demos tape, and the twentieth on the 2003 CD version. The song was played twice live in 1986 with Chris Collins before being essentially shelved in its original arrangement.

The song was rearranged in 1988 and played twice live with Charlie Dominici in this form before being retired. A demo of this version was also recorded, and later released on the When Dream and Day Unite Demos.

Trivia Edit

  • The last show this song was played at was the show where the band announced their new name -- Glasser. They changed it to Dream Theater before their next show.
  • Both times this song was played live with Charlie Dominici, there was an instrumental jam with guitar and drum solos inserted.
  • This is the only song performed live in the Dominici era of which there are no live recordings available.
    • Although, technically two parts of the original arrangement of A Change Of Seasons(The Crimson Sunrise and The Darkest Of Winters) were played. Whether or not this counts is debatable, as the first live performance of the original version of A Change Of Seasons in 1993 has been officially released, and the only notable difference between the 1988 and 1993 versions of A Change Of Seasons is the addition of lyrics.

Lyrics Edit

Heaven
A place within your eyes
Forever I wear
This second-hand disguise
In time to find your world
This lifetime disappears
Yes we understand
In space but not in time
My guardian is here
I can't understand
Imagine wanting nothing more
The angel you've been sending for
Now don't turn away...

A dreamer
Reaching in and finding out
A Vision
I must capture it somehow
The first light
That cast a spell to later cry
Will always remain
This force of life
It's a power in a look of fire
Was calling your name
Don't you feel it?
Yes, believe it
It's time to set emotions straight
This space is wasting a dream
And it can't wait

Here I am
Cross this bridge and come my way
The answer to a prayer
A light for us to share
In all our glory
Someday
We will hold our lives as one
And I will carry you
Until our kingdom come
Can't you hear me?

Disbelief
Is why the spirit falls below
One to one
Is all the faith one needs to grow
This tension I feel
Is it really fair?
One of you will have to leave here
These words will break the line
That ties our worlds together
And I will never go
Remember having dreams to share?
We've been taught to hide our fear
But now you can't turn away...

Here I am
Cross this bridge and come my way
The answer to a prayer
A light for us to share
In all our glory
Someday
We will hold our lives as one
And I will carry you
Until our kingdom come
Can't you hear me?

Here I am
Cross this bridge and come my way
The answer to a prayer
A light for us to share
In all our glory
Someday
We will hold our lives as one
And I will carry you
Until our kingdom come
Can't you hear me?
