An amazing progressive rock song from the band Dream Theater off of their 6th studio album Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence. The third song on the first disk at 9 min long (rather short for them), delivers experimental chord progressions with a wide range of pedal effects and a soft intro followed up with a distorted chorus and solo with a layered minor 3rds effect. The lyrical meaning matches the theme of the album with psychological disorders describing from the inside a figure who is surrounded by so many in their life (fans, followers), yet are misunderstood and are not actually superhuman as their followers believe. These popular figures (possilby describing John Petrucci himself) feel abandoned in their lives "knowing so many, never really knowing anyone". The time signatures are not as progressive as many of Dream Theater's songs, but do include a 5/4 measure in each chorus lengthening the phrase along with an solo/outro, containing a 3/4 measure shortening the phrase. Dream Theater is one of the greatest bands of all time and surely anyone who is not yet a fan should learn some quick music theory, then listen to their music and absorb the complexity and perfection written into their songs.

this website is mis understood. not quite as much as the word "urban" dictionary. dispite popular belief urban is not the freakin "hood" were nothing but gangsters, crackheads, and hookers live. look out your window. do you see a buch of richies homes. if not you live in the hood. and even if you do see richies homes and cars outside your window you still aint got nothin stoppin you from talkin like you frum tha other side of the tracks. urban is slang. where you put deffinitions of slang wordsnot found otherwise in websters or another proper dictionary. and guess what you buch of tight asses. racism exists in the hood. so unless they are getting on here saying stuff like i am kkk and ima black panther then quit gettin your feelings hurt. so what somebodee says nigga, or peckerwood, or taco bender, or jap. are they sayin that shit to you or your homie die-rectkly?
me i am misunderstood if this deffinition gets erased. and if it does the people who did it aint got no biznass on this site.

When something a person says or something they do in a certain way is naively taken out of context to make it seem like they meant it in a different way.
Person 1: "Michael Jackson was a strange paedophile"
Person 2: No, he was just misunderstood"
