"Becoming The Dragon" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Swim in the river ascending
Free of fear filled with purpose
Nishikigoi fights through oceans adversity
Against the current to obtain the highest goal

Swim through our sins of suffering
Climb to the falls of dragons gate become
Transform from koi into a beast, dragon

A living symbol of courage
No wave will shatter these scales (shatter the scales)
Dreams of free from pours
Pours of the dying
Water falls up ahead
What they left to do

Swim through our sins of suffering
Climb to the falls of dragons gate become
Transform from koi into a beast, dragon

To have a shot
To becoming a
This dragon will rise and be king

I'm a witness to a burning form
Evolution is complete
A breath that turns into clouds producing rain of fire
Watch the world move according to each desire

Swim through our sins of suffering
Swim through our sins of suffering
Climb to the falls of dragons' gate become
Transform from koi into a beast, dragon

    General CommentMatt learned how to sing, and liked not damaging his vocal chords, the end.

    Seriously though, this album just kinda grew on me after a while, I wasn't feeling it at first... then it clicked. It's actually a pretty solid album if you just give it a chance.

    General CommentI've come to a conclusion.

    You're retarded.

    The End.
    ---

    And with that out of the way, I like the new sound. I wish they would sprinkle some screaming in here and there, but even without it I still love the new album.

    General CommentThis was starting to annoy me so here are the correct lyrics

    Swimming the river ascending
    Free of Fear, filled with purpose
    Nishikigoi fights through oceans of adversity
    Against the current to obtain the highest goal

    Swim through oceans of suffering
    Climb to the falls of Dragon Gate
    Become
    Transform from a Koi into a beast
    Dragon

    A living symbol of courage
    No wave will shatter these scales (Shatter these scales)
    Dreams of three eagle claws and the paws of a tiger,
    Waterfall's up ahead, one thing left to do

    Swim through the sins of suffering
    Climb to the falls of Dragon Gate
    Become
    Transform from Koi into a beast
    Dragon

    You'll never stop the becoming, yeah
    This dragon will rise and be king

    All bear witness to a great form
    Evolution is complete
    A breath that turns into clouds producing rain or fire
    Watch the world move according to each desire

    Swim through oceans of suffering
    Climb to the falls of Dragon Gate
    Become
    Transform from Koi into a beast
    Dragon

    Song MeaningThe meaning i take out of this song other than the litteral one about a koi becoming a dragon is that weak things may become strong through adversity "Nishikigoi fights through oceans of adversity
    Against the current to obtain the highest goal" Pluse its just a kick ass song one of my faorites.

    General CommentThis song is an old chinese legend in which the koi fish must swim up a river and if it reaches the top of the waterfall it will turn into a dragon

    General CommentSome of the lyrics are wrong, not by much but they are. I'd post the right thing but I don't wanna have a long post showing the entire song. Update?

    General CommentThey matured and began writing music that was more meaningful to them and sounded better to them. I personally like the new Trivium better.
