<pre>Live another day
 
Climb a little higher
 
Find another reason to stay
 
Ashes in your hands
 
Mercy in your eyes
 
If you're searching for a silent
 
sky...
 
 
You won't find it here
 
Look another way
 
You won't find it here
 
So die another day
 
 
The coldness of this words
 
The message in his silence,
 
"Face the candle to the
 
wind..."
 
This distance in my voice
 
Isn't leaving you a choice
 
So if you're looking for a time
 
to run away...
 
 
You won't find it here
 
Look another way
 
You won't find it here
 
So try another day
 
 
They took pictures of our
 
dreams
 
Ran to hide behind the stairs
 
And said maybe when it's right
 
for you, they'll fall
 
But if they don't come down
 
Resist the need to pull them in
 
And throw them away
 
Better to save the mystery
 
Than surrender to the secret
 
 
You won't find it here
 
Look another way
 
You won't find it here
 
So try another day</pre>

New Millennium is a song by Dream Theater. It is the first song on their fourth album, Falling into Infinity. It is their first full studio album featuring Derek Sherinian.

Personnel

Lyrics

Analysis

Petrucci wrote Another Day about his father, John Petrucci Sr. who was diagnosed with cancer. Petrucci Sr. would be the subject of another Dream Theater song, Take Away My Pain following his death. The video for Another Day follows the song's lyrics, with a father and son spending time together. MRI scans are visible in the background, tying in to the cancer theme.

Tone

Another Day is a mellodic ballad with pop sensabilities. The song was written to be accessible, and was presented with radio, single and video releases. Another Day does build up to a crescendo, though it never becomes heavy, instead going into a soprano sax solo by Beckenstein.

Notes

Though Another Day was written to be accessible and a possible hit, it was surpassed surprisingly by Pull Me Under which became the band's biggest hit. Despite a single and video, the song never caught on in the mainstream, the video not being used by MTV and the EP release being considered the rarest commercial release by Dream Theater, often fetching large prices on eBay.

The video features the young girl who was the model for the cover of Images and Words.

Another Day was remixed and included on Greatest Hit (...and 21 Other Pretty Cool Songs).

Live performances

Another Day is a very popular song live and has been played on many tours, especially in the band's early years. The song doesn't deviate very much from the album version, though the saxophone is usually synthesized by Moore (or Derek Sherinian, Jordan Rudess).
