    General CommentMy god are some of these comments fucking retarded.

    Metropolis pt. II is a concept album, which started out as a single-song sequel to (omg!) Metropolis pt. 1, a song on Images and Words. Because it is a concept album, it is meant to be listened to as a whole. It is not "all one song", but it is all one composition. And as for not having a time signature, that's the most ridiculous shit I've heard since the last ridiculous comment on this song. Every song has time signature. A time signature does not have to remain the same all the way through. As it so happens, The Dance of Eternity changes time signatures 128 times. And I swear to fucking god that I will track down, rape, slay, oven-bake, marinate and devour the next person who so ingeniously points out a connection between this song and Metropolis pt. 1.

    Seriously, some people need to learn how to fucking do research and get some idea of what you're talking about before actually talking.

    General CommentFuck!! this song is.... magical, hypnotizer, and stuff... my favorite instrumental song, seeing dream theater perform this song live was.... foock, one of the best moments in music history, the song is great, and John Myung's bass solo is SICK!!!, he seems all relaxed when playing it, but i think he must be burning & tired on the inside... oh, yeah, and the keyboard solo.... perfect!!, yes, i think people must comment on instrumental songs too and express what they think the song is all about... a song doesnt need to have lyrics to mean something..

    General CommentIn the song "metropolis pt 1" there is a lyric "Death is the first dance, eternal", so i think this instrumental might be about, death..yea.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing...if it's not my fav it's number 2. Everything about it is awesome...the heavy part in the middle, the bass solo, and the badass scale sweeps toward the end.

    I love how this song transitions into "One Last Time." It sends chills up my spine. It's like all the tension is immediately released.

    General Commentwhy? 'dance of eternity' describes how the music progresses. its upbeat like a dance al the way through, but the different section depict a timeline.
