Ayreon - Deathcry Of A Race Lyrics




[The President:]
It's time to awaken, the journey's almost done
The quest is over, a new one's begun
And when we reach our destination, our lives won't be the same
We're on our own now and free of the 'Frame

[The Captain:]
We're closing in on Sirrah's halo
Behold the glow of our new sun
An arc of light, a cosmic rainbow

[The Captain and The Biologist:]
But far beyond, buried in space
I hear the death cry of a race

[The Opposition Leader:]
Alpha is shattered, their suffering is done
The trial is over and nobody's won
We've got a brand new world at our disposal
This time we'll do it right, we're starting over and no one will die!

[The Preacher:]
وقال يجب ألا يكون هناك ضوء وكان هناك ضوء

[The Counselor and The Biologist:]
Time halts as we yearn for the fallen, souls weep as we grieve for the dead
Hearts bleed as we cry our last goodbye, in our hearts they will never die

[The Preacher:]
Fa kaala falyakon nur fa kena nur

[The Counselor and The Biologist:]
Fire dies as we mourn for the perished, love drowns as we ache for the lost
Life stops as we cry our last goodbye, in our hearts they will never die

[The Biologist:] Oh, I can see our future star
[The Opposition Leader:] We're closing in on Sirrah's halo
[The Biologist:] I can feel the force within her heart
[The Opposition Leader:] Behold the glow of our new sun
[The Biologist:] I can feel her rays caress my skin
[The Opposition Leader:] An arc of light, a cosmic rainbow
[The Biologist:] I can feel her power draw me in

[The Opposition Leader and The Biologist:]
But far beyond, buried in space
I hear the death cry of a race

Ayreon Deathcry Of A Race Comments
  1. Io Io

    Lyrics in italiano:

    [Il Presidente:]
    È tempo di svegliarsi, il viaggio è quasi terminato
    La ricerca è finita e una nuova sta iniziando
    Quando raggiungeremo la nostra destinazione
    la nostra vita non sarà più la stessa
    Ora siamo soli e liberi dal 'Frame

    [Il Capitano:]
    Ci stiamo avvicinando all'alone di Sirrah
    Ammira il bagliore del nostro nuovo sole
    Un arco di luce, un arcobaleno cosmico

    [Il Capitano e il Biologo:]
    Ma molto lontano, sepolto nello spazio
    odo il grido di morte di una specie

    [Il Leader dell’Opposizione:]
    Alpha è distrutta, la loro sofferenza finita
    Il processo è finito e non ci sono vincitori
    Abbiamo un mondo nuovo di zecca
    a nostra disposizione
    Questa volta faremo bene, ricominciamo
    e nessuno morirà!

    [Il Predicatore, in arabo:]
    Sia fatta la luce e la luce fu

    [Il Consigliere e il Biologo:]
    Il tempo si ferma mentre
    attendiamo la discesa
    le anime lacrimano
    mentre piangiamo i caduti
    I cuori sanguinano mentre
    piangiamo il nostro ultimo addio
    nei nostri cuori loro non moriranno mai

    [Il Predicatore, in arabo:]
    Sia fatta la luce e la luce fu

    [Il Consigliere e il Biologo:]
    Il fuoco muore mentre piangiamo i morti,
    l’amore annega mentre soffriamo per chi si è perso
    La vita si ferma mentre diciamo un ultimo addio,
    nei nostri cuori loro non moriranno mai

    [Il Biologo:]
    Oh, posso vedere la nostra futura stella
    [Il Leader dell’Opposizione:]
    Ci stiamo avvicinando all’alone di luce di Sirrah
    [Il Biologo:]
    Posso sentire la forza dentro il suo cuore
    [Il Leader dell’Opposizione:]
    Ammira il bagliore del nostro nuovo sole
    [Il Biologo:]
    Avverto i suoi raggi accarezzarmi pelle
    [Il Leader dell’Opposizione:]
    Un arco di luce, un arcobaleno cosmico
    [Il Biologo:]
    Posso sentire il suo potere attirarmi

    [Il Leader dell’Opposizione e il Biologo:]
    Ma molto lontano, sepolto nello spazio
    odo il grido di morte di una specie

  2. PEDRITO PLAZA

    Y zaher de Myrath con su gran voz seguir así y mucha suerte

  3. PEDRITO PLAZA

    Como mola me encanta un gran grupo

  4. Ireneusz Kowalski

    The only bad song in whole Arjen's carrier.

  5. InfinityDz

    I think there's no better track to sum up what Ayreon is all about. It used to be Realization, but no more.

  6. Shrike

    The vocals of the Scorpions with a style that is half Nightwish and half Jethro Tull. I'll take two please.

  7. venom hell

    Tobias Samet ruins the songs

  8. vitor Vieira

    Uma canção melhor que a outra, Simone Simons incrível nessa faixa.

  9. vitor Vieira

    Cancões bem variadas que dão o tom de álbum muito bem trabalhado e a produção ficou nota dez.

  10. Niklas Karlen

    Must say: The best track on the album

  11. Amy Sofia

    Amo este álbum el mejor de todooooos los que he escuchado en mi vidaaaa !!

    [President]
    It’s time to awaken, the journey’s almost done
    The quest is over, a new one’s begun
    And when we reach our destination, our lives won’t be the same
    We’re on our own now and free of the ‘Frame

    [Captain]
    We’re closing in on Sirrah’s halo
    Behold the glow of our new sun

  14. Yza

    2:29 Absolutely love the guitar in that part, such a haunting sound

  15. Fowo

    Stll my fav from the album <3

  16. Arjen Bet

    Been listening to Ayreon pretty much since the beginning. Hearing this Arabic stuff just was too much, that's what I hear in my neighborhood all day long. Thanks but no thanks. Soon enough, that'll be the only thing we'll hear in Europe. So what you're calling it : practice for the future?

  17. Iza Bella

    Beautiful song, but I would have liked to hear him sing more to Zaher, it would have been great if they exploited all the potential of Zaher.

  18. DIABLOVT12

    Ayreon is fucking amazing!

  19. iau

    2:28 for Zaher Zorgati's (Myrath) parts. I'm in love with this man and his band. Please more of him in the next album!

  20. Alaa Entabi

    only Arjen can put operatic vocals and eastern vocals together and make them actually work <3

  21. Paola De Andrade

    They need to record this live! Our lives depend on it! (/ °-°)/

  22. An Anshar

    Zaher is faboulous ! I want to hear him more in a following album ahaha

  23. Cveta Georgieva

    People talking about Floor-Simone operatic vocals, while all I'm able to notice besides Zaher is the shattering duet between Tommy and Floor. So many emotions, damn!
    Rally - Tommy, Floor and of course Hansi steal the show in this album.

  24. Sacrimony

    Floor, Tommy and Zaher are incredible ♥

  25. #kiki cat #mimi cat

    Geweldig nummer

  26. L Bergamini

    who started the operatic part? Floor or Simone? I'm confused. Lol

    Silas Newman

    Simone is first, then Floor; then they switch

  27. Jones

    This song is pure art 😍😍

  28. Jones

    My God, Zaher is really awesome, and Tommy too. 😍

  29. InfinityDz

    best song on the album. It feels so good to hear Allen sing in his normal, mid soft voice, (as compared to what he's doing on symphony x)

  30. Christopher Santana

    Jethro Tull meets metal?

    MetalForTheMasses

    Finally deserved that grammy win haha!

  31. Brad Isaac

    Just popping in to say out of nowhere, this came up on my playlist. Now, Metal isn't my thing, so when I heard the metal part, I almost switched away. So glad I didn't. You all are so immensely talented. I can hear 100% commitment to perfection from everyone. It's so rare in musicians these days to be so committed to crafting a song, truly singing, and taking risks with what they do.

    After this song, I played the rest of the album. Incredible.

    William D'Andrea

    Try opeth you might feel the same way

  32. Cleiton Tavares

    This song should not be legal... It just gave me an orgasm while I was in the bus. Be careful !!!

  33. Pâmella

    Maravilhosa! ❤️

  35. Dave Mason

    This album is just filled with amazing vocal performances, but I don't think enough credit has been given to the musicians. All the musicians gave beautiful performances that really laid the foundation for such epic vocals.

  36. livialara

    Arjen you are the man! This album is great!

  37. John Drawing

    This must be the song with the most highlights; ofc the part with Zaher supports the track.
    I would also give credits to the classic instruments in the intro, the flute and cello.
    And in the end ......Oohhh i can see a final with Floor and Karevik. There are no Words to describe that ... only tears.
    TY MR. Lucassen!

    Dave Mason

    I'm one of those who still misses Roy Khan, but Tommy absolutely blew me away on this album.

  38. Roy Allan Thomassen

    thank you Arjen for sharing yet another master piece.

  39. Dave Mason

    This is such a kickass tune. I tip my hat to you sir. Well done.

  40. Kaylia1991

    This is really the best song on this epic record. I am actually thinking about recommending this to my boss (a professor) who is very much into transhumanist and posthumanist literary works and very active in the field of ecocriticism.

  41. gpersefone

    Daaamn son!!! XDD This song!
    I love the transition between Zaher and Simone and Floor. Everyone sings incredible but that part for me is just out of this world :)

  42. Urías Peña

    I am obsessed with this song!

  43. SilverWing

    The best of the song as Tommy karevik 🤘🏻

  44. Tijn Ansems

    one of my favourite tracks of the new album!

  45. IceQueen625

    By far one of my favorite tracks on this album. I adore the perfect use of Floor and Simone's incredible voices. So powerful. I also LOVE LOVE the Arabic and the Middle Eastern influence in this song. Please have more of that in the future. There is so much beautiful music in the Middle East.

  46. lewkster

    The Zogarti part is so fucking brutal, I was hoping for a MORE chant-like song!

  47. Jabrane

    ckeck out the band myrath . the vocalist from myrath is in this song .. you will not be disappointed .TRUST ME

  48. Barnarios 017

    Who can dislike this?

  49. kani niaz

    Zaaaaaher! ❤️❤️❤️ he should've had more time in this album!

  50. Esmeralda Nemhain

    we want more Zaher in the next album! <3

  51. Metaltom68

    Yes Yes Yes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. von Hindenburg

    Only a few days and I will have the record :)

  53. Loïc Savidan

    Hi Ayreonauts !When I saw on Facebook : A new Ayreon Album, I cried !When I saw the singers and the musicians guest (specially Mark Kelly : Marillion !) on this album, I said : This album will be greater than "Into the electric castle" !When I watch the video "The Day That The World Breaks Down", I cried for the 2nd time and for "Everybody Dies" and "Star Of Sirrah" too !!!When I receive the cd signed with the poster and the t-shirt one week before the release of the album, I cried !After listening 13-14 times, I learnt to play the whole album on drums ! (it's hard !)And yesterday, when I wanted to hear some great music on this channel, I saw the WHOLE album uploaded !But Arjen, what are you doing ? How can you get benefit of your album if you put it on youtube for free !If someone doesn't understand why he uploaded his album like me, please answer !Thanks, Loïc, a 14 years old fan.

    Branislav Popov

    Loïc Savidan Wait, wait, wait! You are 14 and you learned to play THIS album on drums? You are a geniuos. 👍

  54. Miguel Valverde Nieto

    Mi favourite song in the album, for sure

  55. Angélica Andrade

    masterpiece song!!

  56. Saruvaward

    Can we talk about how perfect everyone is in this song? You can actually hear hope trying to overcome the sorrow in the voice of the president. You can feel the opposition leader holding back tears of rage, dissappointment and mourn. You hear the holy present in the rite of blessing the new world and the new chance in the prayer of the preacher (Zaher nailed it, it's simple but so full of sentiment) and at the same time the lacrimosa mourning presented by the counselour (Simone) and the biologist (Floor). Each of them crushed their parts!

    Dave Mason

    This whole album is just full of stunning vocal performances. Not only does Arjen get amazing talent to do his music, but he seems to get performances out of them that I suspect even surprise some of the vocalist.

    SilverWing look this

  58. Daniel Howard

    Current favorite track from The Source! So many different genres in one piece. Great to see an official one online so soon too. Keep an eye out for all the pirate versions appearing on YouTube, Arjen!

  59. Greg The Eagle

    Hi Arjen... Thanks...
    You're so kind releasing all of the songs in this awesome album 'The Source' for free in youtube... Thank you...

  60. apri997

    Tobi what a voice!!!
    Amazing song....
    Unbelievable album!!!

  61. Danno Aranda

    This is the best !!!! 2:29

  62. Ramba Cat

    Absolutely in love with this album, it is magnificent. <3

  63. Krzysztof Środa

    Yeah!! I like whole album, but this is my favorite song. Incredible track! :)

  64. Rocky Petty

    I LOVE IT

  65. Dudok22

    Listening to this while playing Stellaris! so good :)

  66. Heriberto Solano Bonilla

    WOWWW GREAT ROLE!!!

  67. Koroshiya

    woa, the high-low-high on "die" 1:55

  68. Mário rosa Fatestheater

    Floor operatic vocals again, finally!!!

    Dave Mason

    Oh, I do believe Arjen is telling the truth. Where do you want the screen capture or is he lying too? Also convey means to communicate which I did. So what is your native language anyway? You fake English well, but obviously don't understand it.

    Mário rosa Fatestheater

    Dave Mason I only liked to knew that Floor used her classical voice again, unfortunely the comments demonstrate comparissions between amazing singers with respective positions if Simone is better or not than Floor and questions like that is personal and I guess that respect must prevail, it's no necessary to hate nobody here,after all the most important is the great music that all of us really like to hear.

    Dave Mason

    +Mário rosa Fatestheater I agree with you. As my previous comment said ,once Arjen clarified the matter, I was very surprised by both of their performances. I don't follow Epica much because I don't like death growls on their own (same reason I was not a big fan of After Forever), but Simone has improved a ton since I first heard them and I've always loved the timbre of her voice. Floor too surprised me as her classical is fuller than I've ever heard it.

    Dave Mason

    +DingoDango I'm getting the impression you feel aggression towards those who won't sink to your level of communication. Tell you what. I'll type slower for your benefit and throw in some profanity if it will make you more comfortable ;) (there's your smiley, does it help?)

    Silas Newman

    Simone is horrible live, if you dont see that then you are deaf

  69. necroplastful

    For next ayreon Arjen please take Zaher as a full on develloped character! Hes incredibly talented not only in his language. Myrath are beautiful. Oh and Karevik is incredible here!

    kani niaz

    necroplastful agreed! I love Myrath.

    caergian

    Ugh, please. I love Myrath and Zaher so much.

    O. Kay

    Yes! Please!!

    TYPE-7

    More Zaher please !

    José Manzano

    That would be great, he's fantastic! Sadly, Arjen explained why his character wasn't fleshed out: he behaved unprofessionally, being unresponsive and ignoring deadlines. So I don't think it's likely that he will consider Zaher anymore for Ayreon.

  70. Monserrat Fallas Madrigal

    One of my faves already!!

  71. Yorghan

    My favourite song of the album! Just incredible crazy and awesome!

    Pedro Ordonez

    Yeah, mine too, this album is incredible

  72. mai grunger

    im in love with this new album ♥ arjen you rock !!!!

  73. Cecil

    For everyone Wondering about the Arabic Part (The Genesis verse). it is a reference to "The origin" if you follow the album story, remember that Forever of the stars left their planet to find another one (Planet Y) in the alpha pegasi, that planet is the dawn of the new era the "Genesis" of it, hence that reference.

    Not to mention that it may be a "Wink wink" to the Prog Band "Genesis".

    this is just my theory.

  74. Khaled Adel

    What an awesome touch to include some Arabic lyrics by the amazing Zorgati in the album

  75. Omar chouikha

    The Arabic part "و قال فليكن نور، فكان نور" is taken from "Genesis 1:3"
    and it means "he said let there be light, and there was light"

    InfinityDz

    @EightLegz "Your" dumbass religion lol. It's from Genesis not the Quran haha!

    Juan F. Giménez Silva

    Thanks! I was wondering what it said.

    Rachel Schol

    Hi! do you speak Arabic? If yes, can you help me: google wrote two different lyrics for this line : this one : وقال يجب ألا يكون هناك ضوء وكان هناك ضوء
    and the one you said (Fa kaala falyakon nur fa kena nur). I translated the first one with google but it was written: "He said there should be no light and there was light" which does not correspond to what you say and to the second line. But when the preacher first sings, I hear the same both times he sings... Can you help me please ?^^ I don't know if the lyrics posted by Google are actually accurate

    Willem Nagtglas

    @EightLegz From the point of view of earth it may have been Delta Pegasi. But the lyrics are translated from the Alphan language. From the point of view from the planet Alpha the star of Sirrah is in a different constellation. The translator saw it fit calling it ALPHA Pegasi. The star of Sirrah is a binary system with two stars. That is why everything had probably two shadows in the "Age of Shadows".

    giganova

    @gpersefone "We folded space to a distant sun, inside the heart of M31. On a steady course to the Planet Y, circling 'round a star in Sirrah's Eye."

  76. jonatan fredes

    I love the Dynamic voice of Floor Jansen, not just in this song but in every song of this album, Think her Tommy and Mike Really break this album

  77. orellevi3009

    i will do anyting just to know what the fuck that
    وقال يجب ألا يكون هناك ضوء وكان هناك ضوء
    or
    Fa kaala falyakon nur fa kena nur means

    "i know nur means light and i think just think that it means:"he said that it should be no light but it was light

    and wow arjen upload all his new songs? thats suprise thanks

    Omar chouikha

    I already translated it :
    The Arabic part "و قال فليكن نور، فكان نور" is taken from "Genesis 1:3"
    and it means "he said let there be light, and there was light"

    orellevi3009

    Oh ops right hhh ye got that thanks

    Cecil

    orellevi3009 It is a reference to the Dawn of planet Y the "Genesis" as in the "Origin" of it.

    orellevi3009

    wait like going to new one and asking if theres sun or dawn in planet y? damn now i see why arjen called as mastermind!

  78. Sabri Akıncı

    Arjen, firstly, thanks for this great album.. Became one of my favourite already.
    One quick question:
    "But far beyond, buried in space
    I hear the deathcry of a race
    [Arabic singing]"
    What have you done? Left Arabs back at earth? :P

    TheBoundFenrir

    Well, couple of things:
    1) At this point in time, we're listening to The Ten, on their way to 01011001 (Planet Y) so this is before there are humans on Earth to leave. The race who's deathcry this song is about is the Alphans (who call themselves humanity, but are probably pretty different culturally speaking).

    B) Given that singing is by The Preacher, his "arabic singing" is in fact the only religion/religion-like culture to survive the apocalypse of Alpha (excluding whatever The Prophet believes, which also seems to be Abrahamic in nature, due to his reference in *Run! Apocalypse! Run!* About the breaking of the seven seals, and the devil.)

  79. Jason England

    literally in love with this album

  80. Issela Santina

    Did Zaher write his own lyrics here or were the lines translated to Arabic? :)

    orellevi3009

    Perhaps arjen is the god of all this things and zaher gives quotes from Arjen's bible of planet y that says this arabic

    just my stupid imagination

    Issela Santina

    It's the Ayreoniverse after all…its own Fermi paradoxes and life/death juxtapositions swirling around in the lyrics :)

    orellevi3009

    one thing we all agree that arjen make the world more interesting world with death dreams living in black world

    a guy with creation like that no one can match him must be overated but i like him as underated

    i said enough...

    btw I keep comparing the earlier parts of the album to the _Terminator_ films, especially the sequels—I assume he's watched any? ^_^

    Arjen actually specifically asked Zaher to sing something from the Bible in Arabic, since his character is a preacher. The use of the Middle Eastern mode definitely fits the apocalyptic tone. But I'm not sure why that specific passage.

    Using Genesis, though, alludes to the development of a new Eden on Planet Y.

    The verses are so great. The main riff RULES. And the chorus is once again pure Disney-Tobias, and it fits perfectly. "We're closing in on Sirrahs Haaaaloooooooooh" :D
    And thank you for utilizing Simones operatic vocals in this way, it's a great addition to an already awesome track. Props to Tommy Karevik for THAT performance on the last chorus!

    Omar chouikha

    And Zaher Zorgati (from Myrath a progressive metal band from Tunisia) did a great job too (the arabic parts)

    Zestful Zeitgeist

    They've should've used more of Simone's vocals here, those operatic vocals :3

    Finally! This is so epic. Listened to the whole album on my way work and at the end I just wanted to go back home and listen to it again and again. Took me to another world.
