Scene Nine: Finally Free

Lyrics by: Mike Portnoy
Music by: Dream Theater
Notes: This song finally details the truth of Victoria's death. In the first part, Edward reveals that he killed both Victoria and Julian after finding them back together. He covers up the crime by making it look like Julian killed Victoria and then himself. In the second part, which happens earlier in the day, Victoria reveals that Edward's feelings for her are not mutual and that she has always loved only Julian, and she tells of her plans to meet him. The third part is the death scene, from Julian's perspective, and in the fourth part, Nicholas says goodbye to the memory of Victoria, and the Hypnotherpist wakes him up. Nicholas goes home, but is followed by the Hypnotherapist, who attacks and kills him, with one line revealing that he is reincarnated from Edward Baynes. The static at the end of this song (Nicholas' turntable) is used as the intro to The Glass Prison

[Hypnotherapist:]
" You are once again surrounded by a brilliant white light. Allow the light to
lead you away from your past and into this lifetime. As the light dissipates
you will slowly fade back into conciousness remembering all you have learned.
When I tell you to open your eyes you will return to the present, feeling
peaceful and refreshed. Open your eyes, Nicholas."

[Miracle:]
Friday evening
The blood still on my hands
To think that she would leave me now
For that greateful man

Sole survivor
No witness to the crime
I must act fast to over up
I think that there`s still time

He`d seem hopeless and lost with this note
They`ll buy into the words that I wrote

" This feeling inside me
Finally found my love, I`ve finally broke free
No longer torn in two
I`d take my own life before loosing you"

[Victoria:]
Feeling good this friday afternoon
I ran into Julian
Said we`d get together soon
He`s always had my heart
He needs to know
I`ll break free of the Miracle
It`s time for him to go

This feeling inside me
Finally found my love, I`ve finally broke free
No longer torn in two
He`d kill his brother if he only knew

Their love renewed
They`d rendezvous
In a pathway out of view
They thought no one knew
They came a shot out of the night

[Sleeper:]
One last time
We`ll lay down today
One last time
Until we fade away
One last time
We`ll lay down today
One last time
We slowly fade away

As their bodies lie still
And the ending draws near
Spirits rise through the air
All their fears disappear, it all becomes clear
A blinding light comes into view
An old soul exchanged for a new
A familiar voice comesshining through

[Nicholas:]
This feeling inside me
Finally found my love, I`m finally free
No longer torn in two
I learned about my lie by living through you

This feeling inside me
Finally found my love, I`ve finally broke free
No longer torn in two
Living my own life by learning from you

We`ll meet again my friend someday soon

[CNN report:]
" news in London, France, Russia and Italy have deleted their lead story, all
anticipating the outcome of the man considered to be a member of American
nobility. And as you can imagine, as the skies have grown darker here over
Washington, the mood has grown darker as well and people here are beginning to
resign themselves to the possibility that they are witnessing yet another
tragedy in a long string of misfortunes. Reaction from everywhere, from
Washington and certainly from around the world has guess..."

[Hypnotherapist:]
"Open your eyes, Nicholas"

[Nicholas:]
"AAAH!"
