Ayreon - Bay Of Dreams Lyrics




[Chronicle 4: The Rebirth]

[The Historian:]
We've arrived at our new home we call the Bay of Dreams
Our abode beneath the flow of endless silver streams

[The Chemist:]
Will I ever be free from the ghosts of my past
Will I ever succeed to find peace... at last

[The Historian:]
Overhead, a savage sky, beyond our placid bay
Deadly rays from Sirrah's eye, upon the seas they blaze

[The Chemist:]
Will I ever adapt to this alien life
Will I ever feel trapped, merely trying to survive

[TH1:]
Will you still be needing me?
Will you still be feeding me?
Will you still be heeding me?
Will you still let me serve when you mutate into the species roaming these oceans
Or will I be disengaged?

[The Diplomat:]
My life is winding down, as if time has ceased
My world grinds to a halt and nature is at peace
My fears are fading in the wastelands of the deep
My doubts all wash away by the freely twisting streams
[TH1:] in the Bay of Dreams

[The Prophet:]
Far beyond in the Aftertime, a new world to come
In a far-off galaxy, underneath a distant sun
I see our children, they look like you and me
They await their destiny, I can almost hear their screams
[TH1:] in the Bay of Dreams

  1. Io Io

    Lyrics in italiano:

    [Lo Storico:]
    Siamo giunti nella nostra nuova casa
    che chiamiamo la Baia dei Sogni
    La nostra dimora sotto il flusso
    di infinite correnti argentate

    [Il Chimico:]
    Potrò mai liberarmi dai fantasmi del passato?
    Potrò mai trovare la pace… alla fine?

    [Lo Storico:]
    Sopra di noi, un cielo selvaggio,
    oltre la nostra baia placida
    I raggi mortali dall’Occhio di Sirrah,
    bruciano sui mari

    [Il Chimico:]
    Mi adatterò mai a questa vita aliena?
    Mi sentirò eternamente in trappola,
    con il solo desiderio di sopravvivere

    [TH1:]
    Avrete ancora bisogno di me?
    Continuerete ad alimentarmi?
    Vi curerete di me?
    Lascerete ancora che vi serva quando
    vi trasmuterete nelle specie
    vaganti di questi oceani
    o verrò disattivato?

    [Il Diplomatico:]
    La mia vita sta finendo,
    come se il tempo fosse finito
    Il mio mondo si ferma
    e la natura è in pace
    Le mie paure svaniscono
    nella desolazione della profondità
    I miei dubbi spazzati via
    dalle libere e contorte correnti

    [TH1:]
    Nella Baia dei Sogni

    [Il Profeta:]
    Molto oltre il futuro
    un nuovo mondo arriverà
    In una galassia lontana,
    sotto un sole lontano
    Vedo i nostri figli
    che ci assomiglieranno
    Loro aspettano il destino
    posso quasi udire le loro grida

    [TH1:]
    Nella Baia dei Sogni

  2. Gor Don

    I'm getting strong early Genesis vibes here and I love it!

  3. Anders Midnatt

    Live long, Arjen, your talent has to be distinguished by the Order of the Netherlands' Lion!

  4. cecilia .diaz avila

    Worst song in the album (is good, but not as good as the others)

    Kaylin VW

    Found the TH-1 guysss

    Jiří Pešta

    so go and make your own song

    Herbert José da Fonseca Silva

    cecilia .diaz avila You wrong.

  5. nosgoth kain

    Viva ayreon!! Saludos desde México!

  6. Golden eternity

    The prophet was amazing here

  7. Dreac

    One of the songs I love the most, it's a short one but I really love the evolution of the music and how each singer has been able to be that perfect !

  8. Jonathan Melton

    did TH1 change here, or was it always as it is in the end?

    Jonathan Melton

    i also think that liquid eternity is nanotech and he controls their emotions through the wireless linked nanotech. just a theory.

    Jeko Ddragon

    after Bay of Dreams TH1 had only a minor role before The March of The Machines. He could've been hiding in the deep all the time. Also Liquid Eternity was stated to be a drug, although they could have nanotech/nanorobots drugs. Dunno if they changed their DNA because they sent their DNA to Earth which created normal humans which were more like Alphans than Forever because they weren't an aquatic race

    Jonathan Melton

    exactly. thats why it makes me think it was nanotech all along. as the biologic dna was human (alphan) still when it got to earth.

    Matt DePuy

    If LE did change their DNA, then it's possible that they were able to, upon extracting their own new DNA, reverse-engineer it. This would allow them to encapsulate the original DNA and send it to our Earth via the Comet.

    Kat Licks

    I feel like he became existentially fearful here. He was afraid of losing not only purpose, but companionship, and finally, his own life. He probably looked over how the crew was reliant on Liquid Eternity and made the decision he would maintain his purpose, and survival, by making them completely reliant on him, just as they did the Frame, making him the new Frame.

  10. Stormbending

    Stunningly beautiful acoustic guitar work on this one.

  11. TrancePort21

    Once I received my preordered copy about a week ago, I listend to the whole album carefully for several times, so each song could leave a great impact on me. It rarely happens that I love an album from the first listen, so it almost scared me how easily it was to be amazed by 'The Source'. The next day, I had this song playing on loop for several hours. It's so beautiful.

  12. MetalForTheMasses

    Since you upload it all by yourself, I can write directly to you Arjen.

    THIS track blew my mind more than any other. I love how dark it is with LaBries parts especially. The synths behind the guitars make the soundscape so ominous!

    Then the change at 2:40 came out of nowhere and really caught my interest. From that point on, you picked the PERFECT notes for the singers. As I listened to it I thought "please do this" and then you did. 3:17 onwards is just pure musical utopia. Thank you for making catchy yet super entertaining music, even in 2017, Arjen (although you probably recorded it all in 2016)!

    Damaellak

    I understand how you feel, i feel like that for almost ALL arjen songs, feels like he understand and view music similar the way i do, it's magical really.
