Lost Not Forgotten is the third track on Dream Theater's eleventh album, A Dramatic Turn of Events, and the first of many songs on the album to eclipse the ten minute mark. Sprawlingly technical, Lost Not Forgotten is a relatively dark metal song by the standards of its album, and its intro features an extended unison that fans have nicknamed the "tickle section."
The lyrics are about an ancient Persian army.
To record this song, John Petrucci used a 6-string guitar tuned to D standard (one whole step down).
