Exactly, if they can put forward a good mix of mid- to uptempo material with their heavy material; and do so that works together as a whole package, then DT should have a good second half of their career.

As to their weakness re: lyrics maybe the introduction of a new member will be the catalyst needed. Petrucci and Portnoy wrote most of the lyrics of recent albums, LaBrie does, maybe one song per, and Myung hasn't written a lyric since Metropolis Pt. 2

I'll check out the new album and then we'll chat.
