Dream Theater- Octavarium
arranged for piano
by Niallakokovich Templinski

1.      Someone Like Him

Fade in
When I play the intro I use: Fm C#m Fm Bbm Fm C#m Fm

Then when the guitar comes in: Fmajor DbM7 Dm7 Db (twice)

Flute solo:  | = bar line

Fm | Fm | Fm | Fm | Cm | Bbm | Fm | Eb/G | Ab | C/E | Fm  Fm/Eb |
Dm7b5 | Fdim | C/E | C/E

Then:

Fm | C#m | Fm | C#m |

Fm       C#m           Fm                Abm       Eb
   I never wanted to become someone like him, so secure
   Ab                Cm                D
content to live each day just like the last
      Bm7b5
I was sure I knew that
A        C#m     D9
This was not for me
      A       C#m         C
And I wanted so much more
         Em             Bb  Dm
Far beyond what I could see
     C#
So I swore that I'd
Bb       Dm           F#m     F#m
Never be someone like him


Fm        C#m
  So many years have passed
Fm         Abm
Since I proclaimed
       Eb
My independance
   Abm
My mission
   Eb
My aim
       Abm
And my vision
      Eb
So secure
   Abm               Eb/G             D/F#
Content to live each day like it's my last
     Bm7          A
It's wonderful to know
      C#m    D9
That I could be
A                   C#m    C
Something more than what I dreamed
    Em                  Bb   Dm
Far beyond what I could see
        C#              Bb
Still I swear that I'm
        C#
Missing out this time


   E/B            A/B
As far as I could tell
        E/B            B
There's nothing more I need
    E/B         A/B
But still I ask myself
      Em/B           B
Could this be everything
     B
Then all I swore
     Bb      Bb/F  D/A
That I would never be was now
   F#m/C#
So suddenly
    Am/E
The only thing
  Em
I wanted
   D
To become
      Dm/F                 A
To be someone just like him


the timing might not be perfect but the chords are definately correct
to see my version of someone like (starting from flute solo) him go to:

2.      Mediate (awakening)

Bass solo then: A | Dm/F | A |Dm/F

A                           Dm/F
   A doctor sitting next to me
                  A
He asked me how I feel
                Dm/F
Not sure I understand his questioning
A                           Dm/F
   He says I've been away a while
                        F#m
But thinks he has cured me
                F
From a state of catatonic sleep


D         F
   For 30 years
             A
Where have I been
D/F#
   Eyes open
    F                      A
But not getting through to me


A
Medicate me
Am/F
Infiltrate me
A/F#           Am/F
Side effects appear
                       A
As my conscience slips away
A
Medicate me
Am/F
Science failing
A/F#              Am/F
Conscience fading fast
                            A  | Dm/F | A | Dm/F(stop and sustain-1 bar)
Can't you stop what's happening


A                         Dm/F
   A higher dosage he prescribes
                     A
But there's no guarantee
                   Dm/F
I feel it starting to take over me
A                         Dm/F
   I tell him not to be ashamed
                        F#m
There's no one who's to blame
                 F
A second shot, A brief awakening


D           F
   I feel the relapse
            A
Can't break free
D/F#
   Eyes open
       F                   A
But not getting through to me


A
Medicate me
Am/F
Infiltrate me
A/F#            Am/F
Side effects appear
                        A
As my conscience slips away
A
Medicate me
Am/F
Science failing
A/F#              Am/F
Conscience fading fast
                            A
Can't you stop what's happening


The chords definitely sound right when you play it but I don’t think
they’re exactly the same as the Dream Theater version. My version of
everything on this page is at:

Very close, I think the chorus for Medicate might be a bit off, but it's usable. Very nice work.
