"Elevate" as written by and Mike Portnoy Billy Sheehan....
Lost in the dark
I feel like a shadow of myself
I'm not what I was
I keep looking for another second chance
To get me? clean

Elevate me
Take me higher
I don't wanna be wasted
I've got nothing left to loose
It's a little known fact
I see everything black
And I don't wanna face it
Elevate me
Take me higher

The smoke and the dark
Has just taken me in
Over my head

No-one to trust
I'm feeling like I'm closely there
I was to the? end

Elevate me
Take me higher
I don't wanna be wasted
I've got nothing left to loose
It's a little known fact
I see everything black
And I don't wanna face it
Elevate me
Take me higher

I'm tired of taking the test
Don't test me
My troubled mind is a mess

You know I'm
I'm only trying my best
To be set free

Elevate me
Take me higher
I don't wanna be wasted
I've got nothing left to loose
It's a little known fact
I see everything black
And I don't wanna face it
Elevate me
Take me higher

    General CommentWow am I really the first post for this incredible song? This song is about a mere mortal human that that is striving for perfection. He wants to feel as if his potential is not wasted. It is almost like the subject is calling out to God for help. Towards the end I think the lyrics posted above are incorrect. "I'm done taking the test don't test me. My troubled mind is a mess. I'm only trying my best to be supreme!" Great song by a great band!
