It's actually 5/4 during the verses
A rather forgettable effort from Kamelot.
This band is amazing
incredible song--chorus is as memorable as anything i have heard.
The features also missed "use of odd meter". That's 7/8 during the verses.
drachedeeis
incredible lyrics, amazing story, well titled
For some reason the opening sounds a lot like the "All your base" song.
@redfox and JT: Not to be contrary, but I find more music with good lyrics (whether or not I agree with them) in this genre than in most mainstream genres. The songcraft is part of the draw.
@redfox
Have you even listened to Dream Theater? They've got great lyrics, and I've actually found a lot more bands that have quality lyrics.

...but to be honest, people don't listen to this type of music for the lyrics. They listen to it for the music, which this song is shining example of that.

Lyrics aside this is still an awesome song.
In a genre that doesn't always have great lyrics--this song has really freaking great lyrics.

8.9/10

love this song!

Seem not only Virtuoso musicians, masters of melodic harmonys, but very High Spiritual Messingers. I can't say how much I love this Magnanimous band. Kamelot always makes my day !
'all you do in life comes back to you'
i always get goosebumps when I listen to that line
I agree- This is the best Kamelot song.
I love this song. Kamelot has lots of good music, though this is my favorite, followed up closely by When the Lights are Down.
No kidding! I just decided to go to youtube and watch 'Ghost Opera,' which was awesome, and then for good measure, I saw 'The Haunting,' which I liked even better! WOW!!!!!
Amazing. 'Nuff said.
