Hometown is the ending theme song of Silent Hill 3, played during the credits after the ending (excluding the bonus UFO Ending) and is track 24 in the Silent Hill 3 soundtrack. The song was composed by Akira Yamaoka, with lyrics written and sung by Joe Romersa. It also plays in the Normal ending of Silent Hill: The Arcade.

Lyrics

He spoke of tortured souls
So outrageous the toll
You can lose all you have
He refused to give in to the town that takes all

Survive, you must have the will
This movie doesn't end the way we want all the time
Then he shouts at the moon
She's gone, and fear has overcome
He was walking the mile, he was walking alone

So outrageous the toll
You can lose all you have
He refused to give in to the town that takes all

Survive, you must have the will
This movie doesn't end the way we want all the time
Then he shouts at the moon
She's gone, and fear has overcome
He was walking the mile, he was walking alone

Four and twenty dead-birds, they bleed upon the nest
There was no time for reason, they had no sign of a threat
Now it's too late, too late for me
This town will eventually take me
Too late, too late for me
This town will win

Through this fog they came along
Dark creatures singing a terrible song
The rest of the bar laughed at him
Only I felt my hope grow dim
They found him dead the very next day
"No more stories from him," I heard them say
We blamed bad luck for his fate
Only I felt terror so great

She and he will know
That someday all things will end
That misty night
That dismal moon
The dead search for their kin
While angels sing, in endless dark
The dead seek out sin

Trivia

  • Another version of the song was featured in the trailer and start-menu sequence of Silent Hill: Origins.
  • The song is based on the theme of the original game, titled "Silent Hill."
  • Towards the end of the song (Verse 6 in lyrics) the lyrics are spoken, not sung as if "the story of Silent Hill is being told in a town somewhere far away."
  • Although the track is 6:04 minutes long, the song itself ends at about 5:03, with the rest of the time being complete silence.
