Along For The Ride

Along For The Ride by Dream Theater

These beautiful lyrics are just one example of John Petrucci’s deep faith and belief in God.

This is one of many illustrative songs, about his walk as a Christian.

I feel a deep connection with John, I always have, and when he writes songs like this, my soul is touched, and ignited.

John is a father, husband, and lifelong man of God!

“Along For The Ride”

Lyrics by John Petrucci

At this moment words fail me
And my vision’s unclear
Blind to the truth
Like hands reaching out in the darkness

[Chorus:]
I can’t stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don’t believe that we’re in this alone
I believe we’re along for the ride
I believe we’re along for the ride

Through the gift of surrender
I’m embracing the fight
Breaking the code
There’s clarity on the horizon

[Chorus:]
I can’t stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don’t believe that we’re in this alone
I believe we’re along for the ride
I believe we’re along for the ride

I will not live under a shadow of fear
Never be crippled by chaos and doubt
Fall prey to your madness

I am not shattered
Out of the ashes I rise
Knowing that nothing is stronger than faith
Finding hope in our hopeless lives

[Chorus:]
I can’t stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don’t believe that we’re in this alone
I believe we’re along for the ride

I can’t stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don’t believe that we’re in this alone
I believe we’re along for the ride
I believe we’re along for the ride
I believe we’re along for the ride
