The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

NARRATOR
Far in the distant future, beyond the pages of our time
Cold-blooded wicked tyrants, threaten the freedom of mankind
Corruption, lust and greed, define the new nobility
Changing the course of history
Across the vast North Empire, most people struggle to survive
Living a meek existence, while their secluded leader thrives

ARHYS
We are living day to day, forced to bear the lion's share
People just don't have the time for music anymore and no one seems to care
My friends I've seen The Chosen One, our quest for freedom has begun
He will be the answer to our prayers
There walks a God among us, who's seen the writing on the wall
He is the revolution, He'll be the one to save us all
My brother Gabriel is all the hope we need, shining like a beacon in the night
Sheperd of Ravenskill, a reason to believe
Music is the gift he brings, the songbird stops to listen when he sings.


"The Answer"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL PARK - DAY

GABRIEL
I don't pretend to have the answer, never said I held the key
But somehow they see a light inside of me, am I not the man who I was meant to be
As the people gather round me, I never felt so all alone
Is this the chance to be someone? My moment in the sun
Why am I afraid of facing the unknown?
They are finding faith in me and they believe I'm the one to set them free


"A Better Life"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. RAVENSKILL REBEL COMMAND - NIGHT

ARHYS
As fearless leader of the Ravenskill Militia, the blood of warriors flows throughout my veins
My brother's gift remains my secret ammunition, it is our hope, our pride, a catalyst for change
Still the fires of revolution burn within my eyes
On this perilous road to freedom, he's our one and only guide
For many years I've seen our people starve and suffer
How many more will die before we stand and fight?
They ask me Arhys, "Could things be any tougher?" The answer's no surprise, "Yes, you bet your life!"
Now the fires of revolution won't burn forever more, I see liberty in our future and it's one we're fighting for
We all long for a better life, like a dream that can't be denied
This is the moment, now is the time, freedom if we live or if we die
I shall give him a better life, I swore this vow to my dying wife, sure she would not survive
Peacefully, she slipped away, the meaning in my life was born that day
And so I found the strength to carry on, with this crusade, it is my fate
Evangeline, you lived a life of misery and pain, Evangeline, I'll never let your memory die in vain
Evangeline, my heavy heart still bleeds, I dedicate my life to set him free
And I will carry on to plant the seeds, I promise in the name of our new son
This battle won't be over until it's won!


"Lord Nafaryus"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

NARRATOR
How the rumours are spreading like vines of a man who has been glorified
News finds its way to the Empire one day, where the envious ruler resides

NAFARYUS
Should I fall for the stories I hear? Is he really a threat I should fear?
Such a foolish young man, doesn't seem to understand, so let me be perfectly clear
He may have them inspired, eating out of his hands, but he'll never be ruler of this land
For myself I must see, what the hype is about, I admit I'm intrigued
I've heard the whispering of revolution, I know the aim of your plan
You think insurgency is your solution and put your faith in one man

NARRATOR
His decision is made, so his journey begins
Off to the edge of The Realm to meet the savior
In the coming days, they'll announce His Grace and he'll ask to be amazed
As a symbol of power and might, it will make for a breathtaking sight
In a massive display, with his family and guards by his side

NAFARYUS
Arabelle, who means the world to me, our loyal son, my heir, your future king
And Faythe, I treasure more than all the diamonds in my crown
It isn't hard to see, I couldn't be more proud
Into the far off reaches of the land, to witness this great spectacle first hand
Is Gabriel the god he claims to be? I guess we'll see. Yes we shall see.


"A Savior In The Square"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

NAFARYUS
We have come to hear him sing, to see this gift your savior brings

NARRATOR
Our crowd has grown and all mesmerized, but silence quickly falls as Lord Nafaryus arrives

NAFARYUS
Please don't stop on my account, show us what we heard so much about

ARHYS
In peace, we gather here today

DARYUS
Don't make him ask again, do as my father says

GABRIEL
Brother, worry not today, I will share my music, and they will soon be on their way
They only know the noise machines, so I'll treat them all to sonic ecstasy
Never in my dreams could I deserve to ever see a vision quite like her
Then unexpectedly, I'm taken by surprise, an angel just appeared before my eyes


"When Your Time Has Come"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

GABRIEL
When your time has come and you're looking toward the light
All that really matters is what you leave behind
So let your heart be free, keep your spirit burning bright
Set down the stones you carry, take the weight off your mind
When you're facing the path that divides, know that I will be there by your side
Find your strength in the sound of my voice and you'll know which choice is right
In this fleeting life, we can sometimes lose our way
But night is always darkest just before the new day
When you're facing the path that divides, know that I will be there by your side
Find your strength in the sound of my voice and you'll know which choice is right

FAYTHE
This very moment was always meant to be, I never noticed, but all at once I see
On the worst of days when I felt most alone with no one to share the secret that I hide
I grew numb to all the emptiness inside, but now I've found my home


"Act of Faythe"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

FAYTHE
I never knew they spent their days in rags, while I enjoy the life they'll never have
Yet deep within their eyes, hope still survives, and they don't seem to think this world's so bad
Even as they gather in the square, they know a better life exists out there
With unity and pride, faith stays alive, how can I pretend that I don't care?
I have always felt alone, living like a stranger inside of my own home
Maybe now's the time to greet the winds of change, could my destiny be right in front of me?
As a child behind the palace walls, often times I'd search its secret halls
And hoping I would find, a treasure cast aside, I came upon the greatest gift of all
My music player, my private paradise, my music player, a refuge I must hide
Been lost at sea forever, adrift far away, now finally for the first time, I know I found my way


"Three Days"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

NAFARYUS
The admiration, the applause and the cheers, I am impressed, you've brought us all to tears
To think I didn't notice, the way you looked at her
Now step down from your throne and let me bring you back to earth
Need I remind you? I am the ruler here, don't overlook that fact
Swearing allegiance to anyone but me, no, I won't put up with that
Hide and protect him, send him away, I'll never play this game
Stand by your savior, one thing remains, I'll find him just the same

IMPERIAL GUARD
Brace yourself, bow down to Nafaryus, pray for help, kneel before Nafaryus

NAFARYUS
He'll surrender on his own, if not, there'll be hell to pay
I'll tear down the city stone by stone, you only have three days
Send home the rebels, call off the fight, in no uncertain terms
Should you refuse me, fear for your lives, Ravenskill shall burn

IMPERIAL GUARD
Brace yourself, bow down to Nafaryus, pray for help, kneel before Nafaryus

NARRATOR
With this frightening decree, Nafaryus departs
They're left to weigh the gravity of his threatening remarks
Judgement day will soon arrive, in only three days time
Will Gabriel get out of this alive? This remains the question on their minds

"Brother, Can You Hear Me?"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL REBEL COMMAND - DAY

ARHYS AND REBEL MILITIA
Brother can you hear me? Your life is in my hands
I will not surrender, never yield to his demands
If we stand together, we will never fall, brother, we're the answer to your call
Brother, can you hear me? You must not be afraid
I will march beside you, have no fear, be strong, be brave
We sing this song for freedom, our voices will resound
Brother we will never let you down

GABRIEL
On the road to revolution, we're bound to make mistakes
There's a price that we must pay, for every choice we make
Freedom is the reason to stand up or give in
But someone has to lose and someone has to win
Brother, can you hear me? I am not afraid
I will not forsake you, I'll be strong and I'll be brave
I sing the song for freedom, my courage knows no bounds
Brother, now I stand on solid ground, brother, I will never let you down
Never let you down


"A Life Left Behind"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

FAYTHE
I never knew someone was out there, a long way from nowhere, who could open my eyes
All this time while I'm sleeping, the world changed around me, now I've never felt more alive
I'm waking up from a life left behind to see what lies ahead, I'm waking up

ARABELLE
Fate found the way to bring them together, once and forever and won't let them go
Nothing I say can keep her from leaving, her life has new meaning, I lost her a long time ago

FAYTHE
I'm waking up from a life left behind to see what lies ahead, I'm waking up
I'm waking up now that yesterday's gone, won't close my eyes again, I'm waking up
I plan to return well disguised, make sure that I'm not recognized
Tomorrow a new sun will rise and somehow I'll find you
Nothing will stand in my way, soon I will see you again
I'm waking up from a life left behind to see what lies ahead, I'm waking up
I'm waking up now that yesterday's gone, I will never look back, I'm waking up

ARABELLE
You'll be her shadow as she moves my son, but she can never know you're there
She is alone and rebel guards are everywhere

DARYUS
I'll keep her safe from all danger, won't let her out of my sight
Did I fail to mention my honest intentions? This is the chance I deserve
Heed my words justice will be served


"Ravenskill"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


EXT. RAVENSKILL - DAY

NARRATOR
Morning breaks beyond the night and she's a world away
Through crowded streets, this quiet hooded stranger makes her way

FAYTHE
Please, excuse me sir can you help me? Where can I find this man?

TOWNSPERSON
Sorry, can't speak, someone is waiting

FAYTHE
Yes, I understand

NARRATOR
As her will starts to fade and all but disappears
Like a ghost, suddenly a boy standing there and all is clear

FAYTHE
I'm your friend, trust me, don't be scared
I am looking for your father and I promise I can help
Now take my hand, we haven't time to spare

NARRATOR
Hopeful and innocent, sensing no danger
He sees humanity behind the stranger's eyes
Her true identity will be revealed when she sheds her disguise

EXT. REBEL TRAINING CAMP - DAY

FAYTHE
My intentions are faithful, there's a chance we can still end this game
I'd be forever grateful to see him once again

ARHYS
You dare to stand before my eyes, you're one of them, why would I trust you?

FAYTHE
It's not like that, I can't go back, hope fades away with each passing second
Lost in this moment is where I want to stay, this can't be broken, we need to find a way
Gabriel, I would wait a lifetime, just to see your face, but all we have is one more day

GABRIEL
I remember your father was moved by my song
I know when he sees we're united that he'll understand
We will walk this road together, we will face this hand in hand
With music and love on our side, we can't lose this fight
Tomorrow our dream comes alive


"Chosen"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. GABRIEL'S HIDEOUT

GABRIEL
Her words ring true, her message clear
How can he hear through all the noise and dissonance?
I've seen a sign that he can change if given just a chance
Against all hope we found a way and it is all because she trusts in me
Why have a gift, you can't embrace, when all you need is faith
And there's a reason now I see, the reason I've been chosen
She sees the light inside of me, a reason to believe
But I can't climb this mountain without you, no I can't face this on my own
With you by my side we will open his eyes and the truth will deliver us home
And there's a reason now I see, the path that he has chosen
He fears the light inside of me
In the absence of song, He's forgotten right from wrong
Our voices will release him, he's refused to listen for too long
I'm convinced beyond a doubt there can be no other way
He just has to hear me out, there's so much I need to say
But I can't climb this mountain without you, no I can't face this on my own
With you by my side we will open his eyes and the truth will deliver us home


"A Tempting Offer"

DARYUS
Trustful boy, unaware who's watching, open the door, I am right behind you

INT. HOME OF ARHYS AND X - NIGHT

DARYUS
Don't resist me child, there's no use in fighting
We'll be here a while, do you recognize me?
Look into my eyes, I'm the face of freedom
When Daddy does arrive, he's in for a surprise

ARHYS
How dare you step inside my home!

DARYUS
His life is in my hands

ARHYS
You monster leave my son alone

DARYUS
You do know who I am? Your love will keep me strong

ARHYS
He's just a boy, he's done no wrong
This fight's not his to lose, I have everything you want

DARYUS
Your next decision will decide his fate, so listen to the words I have to say
Give up the Chosen One and you will guarantee your son, lives the life you never had
Wealth and prosperity, beyond what you have ever seen
And best of all Xander will be free
He'll never want again, it's such an easy choice, just think about your son
And I won't have to stand
In Faythe's dark shadow anymore, I am through with being pushed aside
Tired of fighting for my father's pride, take the evening to decide

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. HOME OF ARHYS AND X - NIGHT

ARHYS
Betrayed my blood to save my son, a hopeless choice to make
But who am I if not the one, who's meant to keep him safe?
Is trust and loyalty still justified, if I deny him of a better life?
Gabriel has always been the strength I call upon
But nothing breaks a father's will to do what must be done
Should I turn my back on him? Abandon all our plans for revolution?
Where hope and freedom die by morning light?
Evangeline, I swore to you to love and guide our son
Destiny has shown its face and now the time has come
Desperation blinds me and through these blood-stained eyes I see the light
A better life is worth this sacrifice


"A New Beginning"
m. John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess
l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. EMPEROR'S PALACE

FAYTHE
Father, I implore you don't believe a word
He is not the enemy, that is just absurd
You may see his talent as some kind of threat
But I knew we were meant to be from the day we met
Give us both a chance for a new beginning, nothing would mean more to me
He is just a man, can't you show him mercy?
Sympathy and strength go hand in hand

NAFARYUS
This man's a fraud and hoax, he'll only shatter your hopes
Saddest of all is to watch how you fall for this person who you hardly know

FAYTHE
Ignorant and stubborn, you have no respect
Not just for her flesh and blood that I knew you'd protect
Listen without judgement, keep an open mind
If you can not see the truth, you're the one who's blind
We don't stand a chance that is his opinion, Mother can you talk to him?

ARABELLE
Try to understand how they must be feeling, Misery's to know what might have been

NAFARYUS
Why would I ever concede to listen to this fool, how can you be so naive?
You must be living in a world of make believe
Do you really think this charlatan is who he claims to be?

ARABELLE
Not long ago there was a time and place, you two possess the same desires as Faythe
You knew how it felt to feel invisible, music calmed your soul just like a drug, Remember Bug?

FAYTHE
Father is it true Bug was always you? Finally I can reveal how music makes me feel
Now you understand why I was hiding, this changes everything

NAFARYUS
I would like a chance for a new beginning, in the end the final word rests with me

FAYTHE
He only sees what he desires to see, it took a while but finally he agreed
Though everything did not turn out as planned
If life's a risk, it's worth a chance

GABRIEL
I know where there is faith there's always hope
They'll meet beneath the stars at Heaven's Cove
Where ghosts of yesterday once filled the lighted stage
Taking our first step down a new road

EXT. RAVENSKILL - DAY

DARYUS
Arhys' time is running out, what will your decision be?
If you still have any doubt, think about Evangeline

INT. HOME OF ARHYS AND X - DAY

ARHYS
On the road to revolution, our salvation's never free
There's a price for liberation when you stand for your beliefs
When the man in the mirror takes a long hard look at me
Will the person staring back be the man I want to be?

INT. EMPEROR'S PALACE - DAY

Change my mind? A waste of time for soon he will be mine

Brace yourself my brother I have breaking news
The Noise Machines lie still tonight, there's no time to lose
No more threats of bloodshed, no more pain and fear
Ravenskill will brave the storm, our victory is near
You are acting very strange, nervous and on edge
I will be a voice for change, brother give me strength

ARHYS
Burning rose, secrets sold, moment of betrayal
Kiss of death, blood revenge, moment of betrayal
I have sworn to live and die by the warrior's code
Never leave a man behind, may God redeem my soul
I will give you what you need, my brother for my son
Guilt and shame will burden me until my days are done
Meet me tonight where the stars touch the sky
He'll be alone there with nowhere to hide
Burning rose, secrets sold, moment of betrayal
Kiss of death, blood revenge, moment of betrayal
He will be defenseless, I'll look on, say I put up a fight
There will be no witness, they will call you a hero tonight
Burning rose, secrets sold, moment of betrayal
Kiss of death, blood revenge, moment of betrayal
Threats and lies, changing sides, moment of betrayal
Risking all, savior's fall, moment of betrayal

EXT. HEAVEN'S COVE AMPHITHEATER - NIGHT

NARRATOR
Under the glow of the midnight moon where the stars touch the sky
Stand the long forgotten names of a time gone by
Heaven's Cove was a wondrous site
Once a beautiful place, now an empty shell, like a memory that time erased
As the pivotal moment draws closer, every shadow and whisper at night
Music will rise like a phoenix from the ashes on this night


"Begin Again"

l. John Petrucci

The Astonishing (2016)


INT. EMPEROR'S PALACE - DAY

FAYTHE
I gave up hope, was dead inside, stayed lost within a world I chose to hide
Then I found my faith in him and now I can begin again
I once believed our fate was sealed, but now at last the truth has been revealed
In an instant life could change and now and then begin again
I know that I am meant for something more
That life beyond these walls has greater things in store
When I heard his voice I realized I'd never be the same
Instantly I knew my life had changed
I dream of peace above all else to share a world where we could be ourselves
We must learn to rise above the past before we can at last begin again

EXT. HEAVEN'S COVE AMPHITHEATER - NIGHT

NARRATOR
The evening stars shine brightly over Heaven's Cove
As night descends in silence the faded scene unfolds
Consumed with trepidation Arhys hears his brother's voice

GABRIEL'S VOICE
As you're facing the path that divides I will always be here by your side

ARHYS
I feel my pulse begin to raise, beads of sweat drop down my face
I have made a grave mistake, what have I done? My blood for my son?
It's not too late, I won't betray him

DARYUS
I knew the day had come and you could be tempted
To give up the Chosen One and finally end this
Do anything for your son, a terminal weakness, but now you're as good as done

ARHYS
I didn't have a choice and I was defenseless
I didn't believe his voice, the fighting was senseless
But now I can see the truth, I've got to my senses, I shouldn't have trusted you

NARRATOR
Arhys was never aware his son had followed them there
Confused and deathly afraid, X watched his hero be brave

ARHYS
On the path that divides you were there by my side
There will be no betrayal tonight
I've found courage and strength in the words you once sang
Tore the truth from the lies on the path that divides

DARYUS
You dare defy the prince? Well you just threw your life away
Along with Xander's dreams you chose the wrong man to betray

NARRATOR
Two hungry warriors clash in the shadows of the night, but there's a cost with every fight
And Arhys' fight for hope cost him his very life

ARHYS
Don't hold your breath the night's still young
Confront your death like father, like son
Who's this I see? Approaching me, The Chosen One

NARRATOR
Drawing closer, pace by pace, the walking shadow hides its face
Never aware of a looming attack, like stepping right into a trap
As his weapon finds its victim, mortified, he's shocked to find the shadow is Faythe

Angels above have you deceived my eyes?
Be still my love I won't leave your side
All my life I have walked alone
Now I found my home in you, only I'm too late
Have I wandered into someone's nightmare?
This is more than any heart can bear
You stole my brother's life, how many more have to die
Before you will open your eyes?
Don't leave me now, hold on for one more breath
Stay strong somehow, this can't be the end
All your life you have walked alone
Now I am your hope, so take my hand and don't let go
Crushing pain, crippling grief, nothing like I've ever felt
God above, souls beneath, hear my last farewell

And now you beg for one last breath and I'm the one to blame
There's a reason now I see, the reason you have chosen
To find the light inside of me, if only I believed

ARABELLE
Here I am, don't be afraid, I will never let you slip away
Look my way, you must be brave, find the strength to live for one more day
I will keep from losing Faythe, I will ask for grace, and hope we find a way

NARRATOR
Like a candles dying flame with forgiving eyes she starts to drift away

NAFARYUS
Gabriel my son, I see the tide is turning, can The Chosen One keep her fire burning?
I would trade my life just for one last moment, use your gift I beg, may life begin again, may life begin again

GABRIEL
If I still had something left, I'd surely use my gift
To give her one more breath, to see her smile again
And yet my gift is gone, along with all her dreams
It vanished with a scream, my fragile voice has all but disappeared
I've nothing left to give, the words I wished I'd said
Just whispers on the wind and now all hope is dead

NARRATOR
Out of the shadows one by one they came
To shed their light upon his moment of doubt and pain
A thousand voices ring out through the night
A symphony of mercy for their savior too tired to fight
And as the chorus grew a thousand hearts beat true
Then like a glowing beacon in the dark, hope came shining through
Shining through, shining through
Amazingly the savior found his voice and all together they rejoiced...

GABRIEL AND TOWNSPEOPLE
Glorious sound guide her tonight out of the darkness into the light
Merciful song set her soul free, unbind the chains of endless sleep
Choirs on high, grant her new life
Make me a vessel of thy boundless grace
Music has shown her the way, she lives today!

FAYTHE
I know you're scared and alone, but we will face this together
Through the innocence in your eyes they will live on forever
In their memory we'll build a new world, a better world, our new world

GABRIEL, FAYTHE, AND X

And now that I see the reason to believe
I can be the man who I am meant to be

FAYTHE
Because of you I live again, now I can be a voice for change
And help to build a world that's fair and true
So they can live the life they never knew

NAFARYUS
On the road to revolution there are lessons to be learned
All the things you thought that mattered are lost at every turn
When the light of my existence was slipping through my hands
Pride and ignorance receded to reveal the humbled man

ARABELLE
My prince, my son, you got lost along the way
In light of this new burden that you face, you are forgiven at this day

ENSEMBLE
People, can you hear us? Peace has been restored
The silence has been broken, music reigns forever more
We sing the song of freedom, together we are bound
People, we shall never hold you down
We will build a world on common ground and we'll live once more
Eternally in harmony, our lives will be astonishing again
