"One Last Time" as written by and John/portnoy Petrucci....
It doesn't make any sense
This tragic ending
In spite of the evidence
There's something still missing

Heard some of the rumors told
A taste of one's wealth
Did Victoria wound his soul?
Did she bid him farewell?

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

Here I am inside his home
It holds the many clues
To my suspicions
And as I'm standing here right now
I'm finally shown what I have always known

Coincidence I can't belive
As my childhood dreams alowly come true

Are these her memories
Awakened through my eyes
This house has brought back to life

An open door
I walk on through
Into his bedroom

Feeling as cold as outside
The walls disappear
To some woman who's screaming
A man pleads forgiveness
His words I cannot hear

    General CommentThis one is all about linking the other parts of the story together, setting up for the final conclusions of the last two songs. The part I find strongest is Victoria repeating the last words of The Sleeper, which I think ties into the idea of it being the last step of Nicks journey. The last time he enters the past and has the truth revealed.

    General CommentThe way this song starts right after the Dance of Eternity is just amazing. The tension of that song followed by the piano intro of this song gives me chills.

    This song has one of the strongest, most emotional melodies on the whole album and is repeated in Finally Free as Julian and Victoria are dying.

    The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory...at the beginning, Nicholas has been shown this whole story and parts of it seem false to him, which they are. He still doesn't quite understand. The end is about to be revealed.
