I never wanted to become someone like him so secure
Content to live each day just like the last

This song needs to be on Guitar Hero. Just imagine it.
Beyond This Life Epic
So many years have passed since its release and it's 2013 and still AMAZING! Definitely one of DT's best songs and one of my personal favorites. Just goes to show you how really great music survives the test of time. Carpe Diem dudes! \m/

@maplejet yes it does actually. It plays like any other song you want to hear, maybe not always, but if the station is like it, it will play.
Question? Does this song get played on pandora station? I mean, it's almost half-an-hour :)

Say it anit so JOHFL ?
Very Sad hearing Mike Portnoy is leaving Dream Theater... :--(
What a great ending. Sends shivers down my spine every time. A truly epic piece of music.
Truly a masterpiece, rivals Tarkus, it's fitting that Rudess did a rendition of Tarkus himself, which BTW is epic.

So Pinkesh Floyd in the begenning But the song Builds as it goes along every time I hear it I like it more I hear it.... Yes could be the best song ever played
GREATEST.... . . . S O N G . . . . . . . E V E R
all right if u have not done this already, go to walmart.mp3. c o m or rhapsody and buy the version of this, you can get it without buying the whole album and its some how better than the original, THE GREATEST SONG OF ALL TIME THAT IS OVER 10 MINUTES LONG AND ONE OF THE GREATEST SONGS OF ALL TIME
The live version off the X SCORE X CD is breathtaking .
Probably my second favorite song of all time. Second, of course, only to A Change of Seasons.
Perfect... the final guitar solo is also amazing.
Epic. and truly stunning. wonderful.
Holy s**t. That was absolutely incredible.

Incredible song. One of my all-time favorites.
The best song I've ever heard.

Long and dramatic but intense enough to keep you interested. Solos are beautifully done and placed (flute, strings, synthesizer, etc.)

Definitely an experience to listen to closely, and thoughtfully .
Really freaking epic, favorite DT song
