Dream Theater - Another Day Solo


The lyrics were written entirely by John Petrucci. Jay Beckenstein of Spyro Gyra, fill the saxophone part in this song.

There are several interpretations of the meaning of the lyrics :

John Petrucci have has this personal experience of his father who had cancer and died in 1996. Someone who is trying to provide hope, optimism, confidence for life, to the people especially the father of John Petrucci and in general all those who listen to this song.

Part two: 

"The Coldness of his words
The message in his silence
"Face the candle to the wind ..." and so on.

Would imply his readiness to leave the world, and explains that the child has to accept the reality. Someone who is trying to prevent another person to commit suicide. 

Verse :

"So die another day ... better to save the mystery."
"Ashes in your hands
Mercy in your eyes
If you're searching for a silent sky"
Mental illness and try to deal with it as individuals and families "they took pictures of our dreams ..."

I think the first is the most relevant interpretation of the lyrics of this song. FYI, the song Take Away My Pain from the album Falling into Infinity (East West, 1997) is a song written in memory of John Petrucci's father's death from cancer. Well you could say it looks like a sequel to the song.

Although that did not rule out other interpretations also implicitly contained therein. Like the legendary songs of the legendary British band: Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen who is still confusing cross the real intention behind the lyric. Good song has many interpretation. Ah maybe this adage does not apply to karbitan bands that often appear on our TV screens.

So.. here is Dream Theater - Another Day Solo tab just for you :) Enjoy!
