It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I imagine the reactions however, "OMG DT turn satanic"  :lol

Yep, it'd be all over Blabbermouth in no time heh

Man while thinking about Black Clouds lyrics for this, I got an urge to listen to the album, especially when I haven't been listening to anything DT since The Astonishing came out but The Astonishing. So many great moments on Black Clouds, I skipped Best of Times but the rest of it is a lot of fun.
I remember how much fun we had here making fun of Tuscany's lyrics when the album was new :lol
One thing I don't miss is MP's vocals, damn they were annoying at times!

Yes, agreed. He seemed to sing more and more each album. His background harmonies on Home were great but I think it got to be too much with the last few albums.

Interesting thread. :)

Falling into infinity - Welcome To The Wasteland
Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Turn To The Light
Train of Thought - A Living Reflection
Octavarium - Razor's Edge
Systematic Chaos - Tunnel Vision
Black Clouds and Silver Linings - The World's What You Create
A Dramatic Turn of Events - Bridges In The Sky
Dream Theater - The Enemy Inside

The lesson here: I should never be allowed to name an album. :lol

Bumpetee bump to play also with Distance Over Time.

What would you be your alternate title for the album if you had to pick a line from the lyrics?

As predictable as it could be, my choice goes for Hidden by Design.

Hmmm...

FII - Nothing but Ashes
6DOIT - The Smell of Stale Sweat and Shit (I quite like "Illusive Mind" for this one)
8VM - Don't Let The Day Go By (Score should have been called Full Circle IMO)
TOT - The Crooked Step
SC - The God of a Rotting Creation
BC&SL - Helplessly Drifting in Beautiful Agony
ADTOE - Journey to Escape My Mind
DT12 - Stories of Resentment and Disdain (always felt this was the right title for this one)
TA - Remember Bug
d/t - God Creators (fits in well with the artwork too)


Yeah, kind of makes me appreciate the actual titles for these.

Maybe this was already pointed out, but "Octavarium" appears in the lyrics, so that album wouldn't need to be renamed.

As for the others (and other than what the OP wrote):

SDOIT:  Hopeless Surrender (TGP) or The Means to an End (Blind Faith) or Daydream of Illusion (Misunderstood) or Sonic Rage (TTTSTA).  Humorous:  Stale Sweat and Shit (TTTSTA).

TOT:  The View from the Outside (AIA) or Saint Gone Astray (ITNOG).

SC:  Hell and Misery or Veil of Madness (ITPOE1) or Lost Illusions (Constant Motion) or The Beckoning Light (TDEN).  Humorous:  A Sickening Monstrous Sight (TDEN).

BC&SL:  Beautiful Agony (ANTR) or The End Is Near (TCOT).  Humorous:  Such a Mess (ANTR) or Making Me Uptight (TCOT).

ADTOE:  Mounting the Attack (OTBOA) or Chaos and Unrest (Outcry) or Ghosts of Yesterday (LNF) or A Test of Faith (BAI).

DT12:  A Cut That Bleeds (TEI) or A Stranger in the Crowd (TLG) or Along for the Ride.

DOT:  Falling Into Darkness (UA) or The Chatter Disappears (S2N) or Stop Pretending (AWE).

Zing!

1989 - When Dream and Day Unite
1992 - Images and Words
1994 - Awake
1997 - The Pressure
1999 - Strange Deja-Vu
2002 - Fatal Descent
2003 - The Crooked Step

2005 - Octavarium
2007 - Drawn to the Beckoning Light
2009 - In the Blink of an Eye
2011 - Bridges in the Sky
2013 - Illuminate the Night
2016 - The Road to Revolution

I've gone very metal with a few of them! I had Train of Thought as "Black Holes" until I saw that someone else had called it "The Crooked Step," and actually that's a way better title.

I heard somewhere, years ago, that Falling Into Infinity was at one point going to be called Stream of Consciousness.

I've always believed that to be true, but is it?

If so, there's your lyrics referencing album title right there.
