[quote=weezul]I think its a perfect ender and a beautiful tune. They were right to end with it imo. Poignant. [/quote]
I think you've got it confused with "Beneath the Surface". This Is The Life is the 4th track on the CD. Either that or you meant to post in the Beneath The Surface topic. :P
I'm Lachlan, I live in Canada (but it says that in my side post thing). I'm 16 at the moment, and only been a DT fan for about a year and a half, maybe two years now. My first album was Octavarium, and I heard while at the beach on a beautiful day. Thus why Octavarium remains my favourite song and album.
Aside from DT stuff, I enjoy many other things. Among my other favourite music is more prog stuff like Rush and Genesis, and metal stuff Like Megadeth, Metallica, Death Angel, etc. My five favourite bands are DT, Megadeth, Metallica, Coheed and Cambria, and Breaking Benjamin (doesn't quite fit in, but I love them).
I play guitar, love to build things, be it Lego, model kits, furniture, whatever. Nice to meet you all. =)

I'm almost 17, and only been a fan for a year and a half, but I think they'll be my favourite band 'till the day I die. Once you hear something like DT everything else pales in comparison.
I think this is one of Dream Theater's most beautiful songs, and the perfect way to close the album. It almost made me cry the first few times I heard it. But in a good way. :p It made me love this album just that much more.
I have Images and Words, Scenes From A Memory, Six Degrees, Train Of Thought, Octavarium and Black Clouds. So 6, soon to be 7 with the addition of Dramatic Turn.
