2 The Root of All Evil
3 Under a Glass Moon
4 Scene Seven: I. The Dance of Eternity

7 These Walls
8 Scene Two: II. Strange Deja Vu

Should say scene two: Overture 1928/Strange deja vu

9 Scene Three: II. Fatal Tragedy
10 Panic Attack

ELEVEN? What? Easily the best song off of Octavarium (besides maybe the title track) Should definitely be in the top 3 at a MINIMUM!

11 On the Backs of Angels
12 Wither

No song I have ever heard sounds like SDV. Truly unique and beautiful.

14 The Mirror

17 Behind the Veil
18 Take the Time
19 Another Day

Surely this needs a better rating than this...carries a lot more feeling than any other
