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?

Yes:  http://www.mikeportnoy.com/aboutmike/faq/answers/31.aspx#342

"How did the album title for Falling Into Infinity come about?
MP: Having sat with "Stream of Consciousness" (the original title) for a whole year, it gave everyone a chance to second guess themselves.  John Petrucci and myself still wanted to call it Stream of Consciousness, but the other guys were starting to think it was too pompous.  So we had to rethink an album title, and we did the usual method of going through all the lyrics, but nothing really knocked us out.  This was the first time that an album title didn't stem from any of the lyrics.  We actually toyed with the idea of just calling it "Dream Theater" because of the many changes and different approach, but we figured that was a cop-out.  Actually John P brought in the idea "Falling Into Infinity" and we all liked it."

For 8V, how about "Fight or Flight".   based on a lyric in the album. Octavarium is hard to top though..
