"Welcome Home" is the third song on the 2005 album Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness.

This song was one of the band's biggest hits, and has been featured in a variety of different media. The song is used by a myriad of different sports teams, including the Atlanta Hawks and the Dallas Stars, as well as being featured in the game Madden NFL 06 and the 2007 music game Rock Band. The song was also used in the trailer for the movie 9.

This song is also the first single from the album. The music video opens with a red liquid resembling blood forming the band's symbol, the Keywork, during the opening acoustic guitar riff. As the other instruments kick in, the band is shown playing on a metallic silver stage, as pictures rise out of the ground around them. The pictures then begin to play scenes from The Amory Wars. The video alternates between the storyline and the band's performance throughout the rest of the video. It should be noted that the video is nearly two minutes shorter than the album version of the song, due to the shortening of the intro and the exclusion of part of the lyrics and most of the solo.

Lyrics Edit

You could’ve been all I wanted,
But you weren’t honest,
Now get in the ground
You choked off the surest of favors,
But if you really loved me,
You would’ve endured my world
Well if you’re just as I presumed,
A whore in sheep’s clothing,
Fucking up all I do
And if so here we stop,
Then never again,
Will you see this in your life

Hang on to the glory at my right hand
Here laid to rest, is our love ever longed
With truth on the shores of compassion,
You seem to take premise to all of these songs

You stormed off to scar the armada
Like Jesus played letter,
I’ll drill through your hands
The stone for the curse you have blamed me
With love and devotion,
I’ll die as you sleep
But if you could just write me out,
To neverless wonder,
Happy will I become
Be true that this is no option,
So with sin, I condemn you
Demon play, demon out

Hang on to the glory at my right hand
Here laid to rest, is our love ever longed
With truth on the shores of compassion,
You seem to take premise to all of these songs

One last kiss for you,
One more wish to you
Please make up your mind, girl,
I’d do anything for you
One last kiss for you,
One more wish to you
Please make up your mind, girl,
Before I hope you... die
