Ayreon - Day Eighteen: Realization Lyrics




[Reason] Now you know the truth, what will you do?
[Me] I still can't believe it's true...
[Passion] You better believe it, and make them pay!
[Me] There has to be another way...

[Pride] You cannot take this lying down!
[Me] I gotta stand up, can you show me how?
[Love] You must forgive them and open your heart
[Me] It's all my fault, it tears me apart!

[Agony] It would have been better if you would have just died!
[Me] No, I've got to win this fight!
[Fear] But can you face them after all you did?
[Me] I gotta reveal the feelings I hid

[Best Friend] See him fight, he's all on his own...
[Me] I need your help, can't do it alone!
[Wife] Listen to me, can you hear me shout?
[Me] Let me out!

Ayreon Day Eighteen: Realization Comments
  1. J Lee Grey

    Every song sounds so distinct

  2. Gwyn Witt

    I love how this huge variety of instruments used in the album all get their chance to shine in this song. Just following eachother up in a marathon of solos.

    Dia 18 - Realização

    [Razão] Agora que você sabe a verdade, o que fará?
    [Eu] Eu ainda não posso acreditar que é verdade...
    [Paixão] É melhor acreditar e fazê-los pagar!
    [Eu] Deve haver um outro jeito...

    [Orgulho] Não pode levar isso deitado!
    [Eu] Não posso me levantar, pode me mostrar como?
    [Amor] Você tem de perdoá-los e abrir seu coração
    [Eu] É tudo minha culpa, isso acaba comigo!

    [Agonia] Teria sido melhor se você apenas estivesse morto!
    [Eu] Não, eu tenho que vencer essa luta!
    [Medo] Você pode encará-los depois de tudo que fez?
    [Eu] Tenho de revelar os segredos que escondi

    [Melhor amigo] Veja-o lutando, ele está sozinho...
    [Eu] Preciso de sua ajuda, não consigo sozinho!
    [Esposa] Escute-me, você pode me ouvir gritando?
    [Eu] Deixe-me sair!

    18-20 день - это вершина мастерства Арьена. Жаль, что следующие альбомы не были такими насыщенными, но ведь мы все понимаем, что можно выпустить лишь один идеальный альбом. Арьен его выпустил в 2004-м. Спасибо.

  5. DIABLOVT12

    This song is one of my favourites from this album. It certainly inspires me musically. Merry Christmas Arjen!

    @MrNecryptic No the end is "Day Twenty: Confrontation".
