Ayreon - 2084 Lyrics




"It is the 21st century. The Final Experiment has failed. The final devastating war that
was foretold by the blind minstrel Ayreon has indeed come to pass. The war has destroyed
all life on Earth, making it completely uninhabitable. I hover above my own dead body..."

Silence fills the air
Echoes fade away
Of sadness and despair
On that cruel and fateful day

My body lies motionless
Upon the kitchen floor
The Earth has died, the world's at rest
2084

Many centuries ago
In a dark enchanted land
Our fate had been foretold
By a poor misguided man

We carried on down the road we chose
The path of nevermore
The journey ends, the book is closed
2084

And now I have to leave, my work on earth is done
I'm heading for the planet known as Mars
To the last of its race, the final newborn son
Before I start my voyage to the stars

    Lyrics in italiano:

    "Siamo nel 21° Secolo. L'Esperimento Finale è fallito.
    L'ultima devastante guerra che era stata predetta
    dal menestrello cieco Ayreon è infine scoppiata.
    La guerra ha distrutto ogni forma di vita sulla Terra,
    rendendola completamente inabitabile.
    Indugio sul mio stesso corpo morto..."

    Il silenzio riempie l'aria
    Gli echi svaniscono
    di tristezza e disperazione
    di quel giorno crudele e fatale

    Il mio corpo giace immobile
    sul pavimento della cucina
    La Terra è morta, il mondo vive ora in pace
    2084

    Molti secoli fa
    in un'oscura terra incantata
    il nostro destino era stato predetto
    da un povero uomo mal consigliato

    Abbiamo continuato sulla strada che avevamo scelto
    il sentiero per il nulla
    il viaggio finisce, il libro è chiuso
    2084

    E ora devo partire, il mio lavoro sulla Terra è fatto
    Mi dirigo sul pianeta conosciuto col nome di Marte
    Verso l'ultimo della sua razza, il nuovo figlio appena nato
    Prima di cominciare il mio viaggio tra le stelle

    E ora devo partire, il mio lavoro sulla Terra è fatto
    Mi dirigo sul pianeta conosciuto col nome di Marte
    Verso l'ultimo della sua razza, il figlio appena nato
    Prima di cominciare il mio viaggio tra le stelle

    Il mio corpo giace immobile
    sul pavimento della cucina
    La Terra è morta, il mondo vive ora in pace
    2084

    2084

    "É o século 21. O Experimento Final falhou. A devastadora guerra final que foi prevista pelo menestrel cego Ayreon realmente veio a acontecer. A guerra destruiu toda a vida na Terra, tornando-a completamente inabitável. Eu pairo acima do meu próprio corpo ... "

    [Lana Lane]

    O silêncio enche o ar
    Ecos desaparecem
    Tristeza e desespero
    Naquele cruel e fatídico dia

    Meu corpo permanece imóvel
    Sobre o chão da cozinha
    A terra morreu, o mundo está em repouso
    2084

    Muitos séculos atrás
    Em uma terra encantada escura
    Nosso destino foi previsto
    Por um pobre homem mal orientado

    Nós seguimos pela estrada que escolhemos
    O caminho de nunca mais
    A jornada termina, o livro está fechado
    2084

    E agora eu tenho que ir, meu trabalho na terra acabou
    Estou indo para o planeta conhecido como Marte
    Para o último de sua raça, o último filho recém-nascido
    Antes de começar minha viagem para as estrelas

    E agora eu tenho que ir, meu trabalho na terra acabou
    Estou indo para o planeta conhecido como Marte
    Para o último de sua raça, o último filho recém-nascido
    Antes de começar minha viagem para as estrelas

    Meu corpo permanece imóvel
    Sobre o chão da cozinha
    A terra morreu, o mundo está em repouso
    2084

    _Wiek XXI. Ostateczny Eksperyment nie powiódł się._
    _Nadeszła ostatnia wojna, zapowiedziana przez ślepego minstrela Ayreona. Starcie zniszczyło całe życie na Ziemi, zmieniając ją w miejsce niezdatne do zamieszkania._
    _Dryfuję ponad moim martwym ciałem..._

    Cisza wypełnia powietrze
    W oddali gasną echa
    Smutku i rozpaczy
    Tego okrutnego dnia

    Moje ciało leży w bezruchu
    Na kuchennej podłodze
    Ziemia umarła, świat odpoczywa
    2084

    Wiele stuleci temu
    W mrocznej, zaczarowanej krainie
    Nasze przeznaczenie zapowiedział
    Biedny, zagubiony człowiek

    Maszerowaliśmy własną drogą
    Ścieżką ku nicości
    Podróż skończona, księga zamknięta
    2084

    Muszę odejść
    Moja praca na ziemi skończona
    Zmierzam na planetę znaną jako Mars
    Do ostatniego ze swej rasy
    Ostatniego, nowo narodzonego syna
    Zanim rozpocznę swoją podróż do gwiazd

    Moje ciało leży w bezruchu
    Na kuchennej podłodze
    Ziemia umarła, świat odpoczywa

    The culmination of the folly of the Forevers. They failed on planet Alpha, they failed on planet Y and they failed Humanity.

    ThyFacelessOne

    Listen to: Epilogue - The Memory Remains. ;-)
    The New Migrator
    The Sixth Extinction
    Mankind' s brief existence served a purpose, after all. ;-)

    mightyRanadin

    May I say I dislike the existence of Alpha in the story? A HUUUGE deal was made about Planet Y, the passage of the Migrator, an entire album named after it. Turns out it was just a transictory planet.

    Alex McGaw

    I didn't really like Alpha either. I was happy believing that the Forever evolved on Planet Y and became (functionally) immortal there. I didn't like how "human" they were on Alpha (they had TV, radio, and phones), either. I great thing about Ayreon up to including 01011001 is that the entire story almost feels like it was planned out from the beginning. The Source felt tacked on.

    @Alex McGaw I thought the twist was that the earth WAS planet X!
