Dream Theater Wither

from Black Clouds & Silver Linings
(capo at 1st fret)


Am      F          Am
Let it out, let it out,
F                Am
Feel the empty space
        F              C               G
So insecure, find the words and let it out.
Am       F             Am
Staring down, staring down
 F                Am
Nothing comes to mind.
           F              C          G
Find the place, turn the water into wine.
F                       Am
But I feel I'm getting nowhere
F                      Em    G
And I'll never see the end.



      C   G
So I wither
     Am            F
And render myself helpless,
   C   G
I give in 
    Am              F
And everything is clear,
    C    G
I break down
     Am             F
And let the story guide me.




Am      F           Am
Turn it on, turn it on
F                  Am
Let the feelings flow.
           F             C                  G
Close your eyes, see the ones you used to know.
Am   F        Am
Open up, open up,
         F           Am
Don't struggle to relate,
        F              C        G
Lure it out, help the memory escape.
F                         Am
Still transparentness consumes me,
F                      Em   G
And I feel like giving up.




      C   G
So I wither
     Am            F
And render myself helpless,
   C   G
I give in
    Am              F
And everything is clear,
    C    G
I break down
     Am             F
And let the story guide me,
   C   G
I wither
     Am           F
And give myself away.
Dm                       F
Like reflections on the page
     G                  F  G  Am   F  G  Am
The world's what you create.



    F           G
I drown in hesitation,
    Am
My words come crashing down,
    F              C/E
And all my best creations
 Am
Burn into the ground.
      F                 G
The thought of starting over
 C             Am
Leaves me paralysed.
        F
Tear it out again,
  C/E             G
Another one that got away.




   C   G
I wither
     Am            F
And render myself helpless,
   C   G
I give in 
    Am              F     C  G  Am  F  C  G  Am  F
And everything is clear...



   C   G
I wither
     Am            F
And render myself helpless,
   C   G
I give in 
    Am              F
And everything is clear,
    C    G
I break down
     Am             F
And let the story guide me,
   C   G
I wither
     Am           F
And give myself away.
Dm                       F
Like reflections on the page,
     G                  Am   F  Am
The world's what you create,
     F                  Am   F  Am
The world's what you create.
         F           Am
Let it out, let it out.
