* ''Scenes From a Memory'' is incredibly unsettling. It begins with a very calm hypnotist and then his patient relating information. All of the spoken word aspects are very monotone, but the singing sounds strangely upbeat and then the background noises start getting harder to ignore.

to:

* ''Scenes From "Caught in a Web" can ''really'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VCPdhom8V4 inspire this sort of thing.]]
* "Voices" really captures the horrors of schizophrenia. The Pink Floyd-ish chord progressions and the lyrics about the hallucinations suffered by schizophrenics make the song incredibly unsettling.
* A lot of ''Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from
a Memory'' is incredibly unsettling. It begins with a very calm hypnotist and then his patient relating information. All of the spoken word aspects are very monotone, but the singing sounds strangely upbeat and then the background noises start getting harder to ignore.



** Especially disturbing as the "Open your eyes" comes up earlier in the song: "[[spoiler: * BANG* * SCREAM* "Open your eyes, Victoria" * BANG* ]]". The whole murder scene is incredibly creepy simply because it's related with sound rather than lyrics.
** Made even worse when you remember that [[spoiler: several songs earlier Nicholas mentioned having a wife and son.]]

* ''All'' of "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" can be Nightmare Fuel to anyone who has one of the disorders the songs are based on.



* "In the Name of God", about the Branch Davidian religious cult and their siege in Waco, Texas in 1993. Especially the way James describes how innocent members of the cult dropped like flies during the standoff.



** There's also "Voices", which really captures the horrors of schizophrenia. The Pink Floyd-ish chord progressions combined with the disturbing lyrics about the hallucinations that schizophrenics suffer make the song incredibly unsettling.
** Similarly, ''all'' of ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence'' can be Nightmare Fuel to anyone who has one of the disorders the songs are based on. Dream Theater does a disturbingly good job conveying these sort of things in music.
** "The Enemy Inside" is already a disturbing enough song about PTSD, but the video actually shows a frighteningly realistic depiction of what PTSD is like, with a father always being unable to execute simple everyday tasks without worrying about being shot. It's very terrifying.
* "In the Presence of Enemies: Part 2" begins with the sound of wind followed by a very creepy bass and piano part. James [=LaBrie=]'s singing in this section also helps with making you feel uneasy.

* "The Dark Eternal Night". The lyrics are about a mummy coming back to life and summoning an undead army to take over the world. As if that wasn't bad enough, the music is extremely violent in its tempo changes and even has a very creepy honky-tonk piano section that always is enough to creep one out.
