A New Beginning is the nineteenth track from Dream Theater's thirteenth studio album, The Astonishing.
Faythe begs her father to consider Gabriel's offer for peace, and it is revealed that Faythe's music player once belonged to Nafaryus.
[FAYTHE:] Father, I implore you Don't believe a word He is not the enemy That is just absurd You may see his talent As some kind of threat But I knew we were meant to be From the day we met Give us both a chance For a new beginning Nothing would mean more to me He is just a man Can't you show him mercy? Sympathy and strength go hand in hand [NAFARYUS:] This man's a fraud and a hoax He'll only shatter your hopes Saddest of all is to watch how you fall For this person who you hardly know [FAYTHE:] Ignorant and stubborn You have no respect Not just for your flesh and blood But all who you protect Listen without judgment Keep an open mind If you can not see the truth You're the one who's blind We don't stand a chance That is his opinion Mother, can you talk to him? [ARABELLE:] Try to understand How they must be feeling Misery's to know what might have been [NAFARYUS:] Why would I ever concede To listen to this fool? How can you be so naive? You must be living in a world of make believe Do you really think this charlatan is who he claims to be? [ARABELLE:] Not long ago, there was time and place You, too, possessed the same desires as Faythe You knew how it felt to feel invisible Music claimed your soul just like a drug Remember Bug? [FAYTHE:] Father, is it true Bug was always you? Finally, I can reveal How music makes me feel! Now you understand Why I was hiding This changes everything [NAFARYUS:] I will grant the chance For a new beginning In the end, the final word rests with me
