This is most of "Lines in the Sand."  It's not perfect, and it's not
all the way complete, but it's here, and it's okay.

Side note that no one will care about, but I feel I must tell the 
most people I can, I actually got to meet Mr. Petrucci, along with
Mr. LaBrie, Mr. Sherinian, and Mr. Portnoy at the recent (5/20/98) 
concert in Tempe, Arizona.  What a treat.  They were probably the 
most engaging bunch of rock stars I'll ever hope to meet, which is 
just fine because they could just about be the be all end all of 
progressive metal, in my book.

Can't wait for the new album, guys, if you happen to read this.

(w/vocals)

	Sometimes, for a moment of bliss, 

	And the passion we're craving, 

	There's a message we miss.



	Sometimes when, the spirit's left alone,

	We must believe in something.

	To find it we've grown.

	And the fantasies you're seeking

	Are the crosses you bear.

(w/vocals)

	We fabricate our demons, invite them into our homes.

	Have supper with the aliens, and fight the war alone.

	We conjure up our skeletons, enlist the den of theives.

	Frightened from our closets then sewn upon our sleeves.

(w/vocals and random arpeggiation)

	Living comes much easier once we admit we're dying.
