Scene Three: I. Through My Words is the fourth track from Dream Theater's fifth studio album, Metropolis, Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory. It continues immediately from the previous track, Strange Déjà Vu.



All your eyes have ever seen
All you've ever heard
Is etched upon my memory
Is spoken through my words

All that I take with me
Is all you've left behind
We're sharing one eternity
Living in two minds
Linked by an endless thread
Impossible to break


At this point in the album's narrative, Nicholas is beginning to come to terms with the strange link between his life and Victoria's. He realizes that everything that he experiences is an echo of Victoria's life, and that their lives are linked by 'an endless thread'.


This song is very sombre, calm and sad. It features only piano and James' singing, and features mainly as a transition into the next song, Fatal Tragedy.
