Artist's Description

Similar concept in this to what is in The Answer Lies Within

This one is more to do with a search for understanding internal versus external validation. It relates mostly to ‘strength’ and how it relates to being a ‘man’ in today’s society whereas the other image is more about the search for internal faith.
I was listening to another Dream Theater song and while the song has nothing to do with my sentiment, it seems relate really well…

There was no time for pain
No energy for anger
The sightlessness of hatred slips away
Walking through winter streets alone
He stops and takes a breath
With confidence and self-control

I look at the world and see no understanding.
I’m waiting to find some sense of strength.
I’m begging you from the bottom of my heart
to show me understanding.
I need to live life like some people never will.
So find me kindness, find me beauty, find me truth.
When temptation brings me to my knees and I lay here drained of strength.
Show me kindness , show me beauty, show me truth.

The way your heart sounds makes all the difference.
It’s what decides if you’ll endure the pain that we all feel.
The way your heart beats makes all the difference in learning to live.
Here before me is my soul, I’m learning to live.
I won’t give up till I’ve no more to give… no more to give.
