[Best Friend] See his mouth, he tries to speak
He cannot move, his voice is weak
[Me] My dear friend, can you hear me now?
I’ll try to tell you how I feel
[Best Friend] I feel the pain inside of you
Tell me please, what can I do?
[Me] Listen well to what I have to say
I have to tell you of my betrayal

[Me] I revealed the facts, it was clear
They spelled the end of your career
[Best Friend] Yes, I always felt that it was you
I repressed the thought although I knew the truth
[Me] The truth is out, I feel relieved
You hate me now, you’ve been deceived?
[Best Friend] Oh no, in a way we are even now
Come back to us somehow

[Wife & Love CHORUS] Cross that bridge to the other side
Follow your heart, you can’t go wrong
Come with me, I will be your guide
and lead you back where you belong

[Agony] Welcome to reality, be ready for the pain
Welcome to reality, will it be in vain?
Welcome to reality, nothing much has changed since you were gone

[Passion] Rise up and show the world you can be a better man
Rise up and show the world you care, yes you can
Rise up and show the world you're taking your chance
Rise up and show the world!
[Agony] Welcome back!

[Reason] Welcome to reality, wake up and rejoice
Welcome to reality, you’ve made the right choice
Welcome to reality and let them hear your voice, shout it out!

[Pride] Rise up and show the world your battle is won
Rise up and show the world the old you is gone
Rise up and show the world your new life has begun
Rise up and show the world!
[Reason and Agony] Welcome back!

[Fear] Here inside the question burns
Are you sure of your return?
[Me] I am sure I deserve this chance
Now I understand it all
[Fear] It all seems so unreal to you
Can you decide what to do?
[Me] Yes I can, oh I will survive
Look at me…I’m alive
[Wife & Love CHORUS x2]
[Best Friend] There is so much to see, there is so much to live for
[Wife] Come to me, my love
[Reason] You feel her warmth glowing on your skin
[Love] You’re never alone, I knew we could make it
[Fear] Aaaaaaaaarrrrgh!
[Passion] Can’t you feel that fire? Can’t you feel it burn?
[Agony] Be ready for the pain! Ready for the pain!
[Pride] Well rise up, your battle has been won, your new life has begun
[Me] I’m alive, I won’t look back, aaaaah!

[Computer] The Human Equation program aborted.
Have a nice day.
Dream Sequencer system offline.

[Forever] Emotions…I remember…

    General CommentAwesome grand finale to The Human Equation. Mikael's growl and James' scream in the end of the song bring me on an Amazing Flight (heh).
