Dream Theater A Nightmare to Remember (excerpt)

from Black Clouds & Silver Linings
Cm
Lying on the table
        F
In this unfamiliar place,
      Cm
I'm greeted by a stranger,
   F
A man without a face.
           Cm
He said: "Son, do you remember?
       F
Do you even know your name?"
          Cm
Then he shined a light into my eye
            F
And said: "Take this for the pain".

Hopelessly drifting,
 Bb                  Cm    Csus2   Cm
Bathing in beautiful agony...
     G#
I am endlessly falling,
 Bb                     C    Csus2   C
Lost in this wonderful misery.
    G#                  Bb
In peaceful sedation I lay half awake,
    Gm                  G#
And all of the panic inside starts to fade.
Hopelessly drifting,
 Bb                  C#
Bathing in beautiful agony...

"Tell me, does this hurt you?"
 F
Said the faceless man.
          Cm
"Can you move all of your fingers?
           F
Then you try your best to stand".
  Cm
I asked about the others:
    F
"Is everyone okay?"
    Cm
He told me not to worry
       F
As he turned and looked away.
