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.
[Sleeper:] Shine Lake of fire Lines Take me higher My mind Drips desire Confined and Overtired Living this charade Is getting me nowhere I can't shake this charade The city's cold blood calls me home 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 [Miracle:] 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 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 [Nicholas:] 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
The intro to this song seems to be inspired heavily by the song "Forty Six & 2" by Tool, which was released two years earlier.
