Scene Six: Home is the eighth track on the album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory, and is the first track of Act 2 of the same album. It is the longest track on the album, stopping at just under 13 minutes. It is also the heaviest track on the album, being played in Drop D tuning and focusing heavily on repetitive patterns and chugging riffs reminiscent to some songs on Train of Thought and other metal songs.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Lake of fire
Take me higher
My mind 
Drips desire
Confined and 

Living this charade
Is getting me nowhere
I can't shake this charade
The city's cold blood calls me home
It`s what I long for
Back home where I belong

The city - it calls to me
Decadent scenes from a memory
Sorrow, eternity
My demons are coming to drown me

Help - I'm falling, I'm crawling
I can't keep away from its clutch
Can't have it, this habit
It's calling me back to my home

I remember the first time she came to me
She poured out her soul all night and cried
I remember I was told there's a new love that's born
For each one that has died

I never thought that I
Could carry on with this life
But I can't resist myself
No matter how hard I try

Living their other life
Is getting them nowhere
I'll make her my wife
Her sweet temptations calls me home
It`s what I long for
My home where she belongs

Her ecstasy - means so much to me
Even deceiving my own blood
Victoria watches and thoughtfully smiles
She's taking me to my home

Help - he's my brother, but I love her
I can`t keep away from her touch
Deception, dishonor
It's calling me back to my home

Her story - it holds the key
Unlocking dreams from my memory
Solving this mystery
Is everything that is a part of me

Help - regression, obsession
I can't keep away from her touch
Leave no doubt, to find out
It's calling me back to my home

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The intro to this song seems to be inspired heavily by the song "Forty Six & 2" by Tool, which was released two years earlier.
