Dream Theater: “The Answer Lies Within” (Video)

By Nathan Schmitt

This video is of one of my favorite songs, “The Answer Lies Within,” by one of my favorite bands, Dream Theater. This was recorded at New York City’s radio City Music Hall on April 1, 2006 with a full orchestra behind them.

Dream Theater: “The Answer Lies Within”

“Look around
Where do you belong
Don’t be afraid
You’re not the only one

Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within

Life is short
So learn from your mistakes
And stand behind
The choices that you make

Face each day
With both eyes open wide
And try to give
Don’t keep it all inside

Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within

You’ve got the future on your side
You’re gonna be fine now
I know whatever you decide
You’re gonna shine

Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
You’re ready to begin
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within.”

“Belief” by John Mayer: Live (Video)

By Nathan Schmitt

I like this recording a lot.

Also, this song has lyrics that are particularly important given the current state of the world.

John Mayer: “Belief”
“Is there anyone who
Ever remembers changing there mind from
The paint on a sign?
Is there anyone who really recalls
Ever breaking rank at all
For something someone yelled real loud one time

Everyone believes
In how they think it ought to be
Everyone believes
And they’re not going easily

Belief is a beautiful armor
But makes for the heaviest sword
Like punching under water
You never can hit who you’re trying for

Some need the exhibition
And some have to know they tried
It’s the chemical weapon
For the war that’s raging on inside

Everyone believes
From emptiness to everything
Everyone believes
And no ones going quietly

We’re never gonna win the world
We’re never gonna stop the war
We’re never gonna beat this
If belief is what we’re fighting for

What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand
Belief can
Belief can
What puts the folded flag inside his mother’s hand
Belief can
Belief can

Music: The Guitar Trio (Video)

As a musician, I can’t resist posting media relating to this passion from time to time. This is Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia, and John Mclaughlin playing Di Meola’s “Mediterranean Sundance.”Originally recorded as a guitar duet between Al Di Meola and Paco de Lucia. The music speaks for itself.
