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.



A single star behind me A red sky burns ahead A lonely light below me Awake among the dead An overwhelming feeling Leaves me numband strange A sense of new beginning I sense a wind of change

Out with the old useless People so cold ruthless welcome In a new millennium How many times must I Live out this nightmare I Can't wait until a new millennium

I've got this feeling The tide is turning now baby Funny feeling everything's gonna be alright now

Living out a constant deja vu Keep your head up Please be patient we will get to you Keep your head up Just have some faith and you can see it Through Keep your head up But faith don't pay the rent that's overdue Keep your head up All that's glittering is turning blue Keep your head up What they want from me ain't gotta clue Keep your head up Swallow pride before it swallows you Keep your head up Don't dare bite the hand that's starving you Keep your head up

How can you keep your head And not go insane when the only light at the end Of the tunnel is another train

The lies ten feet tall Have broken my fall Welcome you all new millennium

It's well overdue and I can't wait to Welcome in a new millennium I've got this feeling The tide is turning now baby Funny feeling Everything's gonna be alright now


This song was one of the three songs written by Mike Portnoy and this was geared towards the record label and expressed Portnoy's frustration with the record company.


New Millennium is an extremely progressive song
