Ayreon - Day Sixteen: Loser Lyrics




[Father] Look at you, lying there, defenceless and alone
See I am no fool, I always knew you wouldn't make it on your own

Cos you're just like your mother, well, where is she now?
You'll end up like her soon, 6 feet under ground, loser!

I came here to watch you bleed, oh how I love to gloat
If you had any balls at all, you'd grab me by the throat
You don't even look like me, ha! Not even close!
You're an aberration, some freak...I suppose, loser!

I had my fun, I'm going back to the place I don't call home
There's no one there who waits for me, but you won't hear me moan
My ex-wives all sue me, and with half my kids in jail
I'll still come out laughing, cause me? I never fail, loser!

[Rage] NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER!
You're killing it from afar, go tell it in a bar
You're killing it from afar my father!

  1. ThePowerOf42

    Lyrics kinda reminds me of the abrigde version of the relationsship between Vegeta and Trunks

  2. Hugh Askew

    Only Arjen could take didgeridoo, violins and flute and create the ultimate child abuse theme.

  3. Kyle Weaver

    RIP Mike Baker

  4. Dackson Flux

    This is my favorite from this album 🤘

  10. Nebojsa Marinkov

    Arjen is brilliant composer and this song although not awful, is stupidest in whole Ayreon discography. Why it became so famous beside all the other incredible masterpieces by Ayreon ?
    Some of them from same album as this average creation

    Anthony Cortez

    Swagger. Attitude.

  11. Marcelo

    wow this its really amazing

  12. Killing spree

    Türkler?

  13. LittleDemon97

    if I were the villain of a musical this definitely would be my song!

  14. Hernán Rodríguez

    Fucking awesome.

  15. Mauricio Progressive

    Mike Baker !!!

  16. betweentheperiphery

    Devin Townsend really amplifies every track he is in on this album. He did a phenomenal job as Rage.

  17. Morei

    the instrument at 1:07?

    Jan T'Jaeckx

    Mostly violin.

  18. Jeferson Povoroznek

    master piece... I'm listening this and remembering how awesome ayreon is!!! Arjen is a genius and Devin is the most perfect eclectic singer ever, he can do anything with his voice! amazing work!

  19. Fizz Atomic

    Didgeridoos, Mike, Ken, perfection. 4 words to describe this song.

  20. QuinKilkziard

    Devin Townsend is so great in this album. Like, dang.

  21. Sei

    Fav piece in this album

    Sei

    also day eleven is great too xd

  22. chris parker

    Wowowowowowowowowowowowowow

  23. Immy

    I have to be dense, because I've listened to this song many times, yet just now I got unsure if this is his father literally coming to his bedside to mock him, or if it's just the mental construct in his mind.

    Josh Jenkins

    I've listened to this album as a whole a few times now and I've never imagined it where it was actually his father at his bedside; I always imagined it as being in his head

    Dylan Bowser

    I scrolled down to find an answer to this question

    kencabbit

    As a child of an abusive parent, it's easy for me to interpret this is a memory of his father mocking him for real, or at least an imagined instance of something that really did happen to him on a regular basis as a child. My mother had a habit of spending hours into the night drunk outside of my locked bedroom door yelling about how awful I was.

    Volcanic Bunnies

    In the stage show The Theater Equation, the father does show up at the hospital, but I also like the interpretation of him being part of the main character's imagination : )

    Сергей Чаплин

    Heh, the main question here is not about father being real or not, but about the main character himself being real or not.

  24. Klayett

    You're not a loser when you realise that it has been exactly 1 year since this video was uploaded!

  25. Fco. Mata

    Chingon me cae que si.....!!!!!

  26. Fairytail Princess

    Love this song!

  27. Klayett

    Singer sounds like Andi Deris from Helloween.

  28. Natalie Aleman

    What a blast from the past! Its been YEARS since I heard this song.

  29. Canal IceAngelSimon

    Portuguese lyrics

    Dia 16 - Fracassado

    [Pai]
    Olhe para você, deitado aí, indefeso e sozinho
    Veja eu não sou tolo, eu sempre soube que não conseguiria sozinho
    Porque você é como sua mãe, bem, onde ela está agora?
    Você logo vai acabar como ela, a 7 palmos do chão, fracassado

    Eu vim aqui para vê-lo sangrar, ah como adoro ver
    Se você tivesse coragem, me pegaria pela garganta
    Você nem se parece comigo, ha! Nem perto
    Você é uma aberração, algum esquisito, eu suponho, fracassado

    Já tive minha diversão, agora vou voltar para onde não chamo de lar
    Não há ninguém lá me esperando, mas você não vai me ver choramingar
    Minhas ex-esposas me processam, e com metade de meus filhos presos
    Eu ainda saio dando risada, por que? Eu nunca falho, fracassado!

    [Ira]
    Nunca! Nunca! nunca! nunca! nunca! nunca! nunca! nunca
    Você está matando de longe, vá contar num bar
    Você está matando de longe meu pai

  30. Fairytail Princess

    So epic!

  31. Feo

    Mr. Arjen Antony Lucassen pls come to Ukraine! (dreams -_-)

  32. LukeFancyFilms

    LOSER!!!

  33. Cody Beinert

    The villain song for the movie that never existed. AWESOME!

  34. Boy

    This song is where I found Ayreon, good shit

    Fizz Atomic

    As expected from a guy with the profile picture of the Italian crimson king. Ayreon's music always works!

  35. Skinny T

    2004?!?

  36. daniel cruz

    Shidori

  37. Aaron Behling

    A song that evokes such raw emotion and the lyrics, while simple, invoke such a narrative that many of us have felt at times. Ayreon just has a way of doing things just enough to make things come across so raw and beautiful.

    R1ddic

    Devin is also a great pick for "Rage". The sheer direct brutality doesn't leave any doubt what it's about.

  38. Simon Wilkins

    Just a couple more comments after this one for them to equal the track number, unless you’re looking at Theater Equation.

  39. Demian159

    Lyrics!

  40. Lokiskade

    How did i even miss this album ? Always knew Ayreon, had the Universal Migrator for ages, been a fan of Devin Townsend for ages and i discover this album and this gem of a song only now ?

    What is wrong with me ? Oo

    Oskar Hansen

    wtf is wrong with you actually

    FreeDom

    just be glad for discovering this and BANG YOUR HEAD

    gre8

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are extremely unlucky. :)

    Andreas Nilsen

    If you’re a true fan, you don’t miss an artist’s release. 😜😉

  41. Vitaliy

    Middle part of the song somehow reminds of Alice Cooper. Just plain awesome.

    Stefanos Xaritos

    In the behind the scenes for this album, Arjen mentioned how he and Mike Baker, where really big fans of Alice Cooper, and they tried to have that vibe in this song ;)

    AgentCat

    That's okay. Alice Cooper played Freddy Krueger's father in Freddy's Dead!

  42. Land Shut

    I miss baker :(

    Cotramjoxxx

    Baker had better voice for creepy-comic parts than Mike Mills nowadays.

  43. Aaron Walton

    That Hammond solo has to be my favorite solo on any Ayreon album; so good.

    Arjen Anthony Lucassen

    Agreed Aaron, Ken Hensley rules! Check out Uriah Heep (Gypsy - live), you won't regret it :-)

    Aaron Walton

    I will, thanks!

    Sergey Sedlovsky

    You can't agree about songs from your own music that you like some part of your music... well... technically you can... but that's not the point

    O. Kay

    Sergey Sedlovsky You can't tell Arjen Lucassen what to do
    ...he is freaking Arjen Lucassen ;)

    Kiko C

    That's the main reason I listen to this song @Arjen @Aaron Walton

  44. ravonne

    This song has the perfect emotional build up on so many levels. Another gem on this perfect album. :)

  45. Jean-Paul Romonesco

    Just complete awesomeness in 1 song. <3
