Ayreon - Evil Devolution Lyrics




The future's doored ingress! What lies beyond? One of you - ah, survived so much! - are you man
enough to force this door upon its golden hinge? You craved the answer - but can you bear the
truth? The door --! The Future --!

[futureman]
our hope's dissolved
for man's evolved into another state of being
have we "progressed" beyond the need of feeling?

a cyber-brain
the last in the chain of man/machine allience
have we become the victims of our science?

evil devolution
is this an illusion
out here in space

human humiliation
this mutation
of our human race

is this the end
will we transcend the need for human pleasures?
will we abandon all our earthly treasures?

will mankind yield
on the battlefield of natural selection
to an inorganic digital perfection?

evil devolution
is this an illusion
out here in space

human humiliation
this mutation
of our human race

    Transmissão Maligna

    [Voz Misteriosa]
    A porta do futuro está logo a frente! O que jaz além? Um de vocês - ah, muitos sobreviveram! - Você é homem o suficiente para forçar esta porta até sua valvula dourada? Você implora pela resposta - mas pode você encarar a
    verdade? A porta --! O Futuro --!

    [Homem do Futuro]
    Nossa esperança foi dissolvida
    Pois o homem evoluiu para outro estado de existência
    Nós progredimos além da necessidade de sentimento?

    Um cérebro cibernético
    O ultimo na cadeia da aliança homem/máquina
    Nós nos tornamos vítimas da nossa ciência?

    Transmissão Maligna
    Será isso uma ilusão
    Aqui no espaço

    Humilhação humana
    Essa mutação
    Da nossa raça humana

    Será isso o fim
    Nós iremos transcender a necessidade de prazeres humanos?
    Nós iremos abandonar todos nossos tesouros terráqueos?

    A humanidade desistirá
    No campo de batalha da seleção natural
    Para uma inorgânica perfeição digital?

    Transmissão Maligna
    Será isso uma ilusão
    Aqui no espaço

    Humilhação humana
    Essa mutação
    Da nossa raça humana

    **
    *Przyszłość leży za wrotami! Cóż one kryją? Jeden z was - ach, przetrwałeś tak wiele! - czy jesteś dostatecznie silny by wyłamać te drzwi na złotych zawiasach? Pragnęliście odpowiedzi - ale czy zdołacie znieść prawdę? Drzwi...! Przyszłość...!*


    Nasza nadzieja zniknęła
    Gdyż człowiek wyewoluował do innego stanu egzystencji
    Czy ,,rozwinęliśmy się'' poza potrzebę czucia?

    Cybernetyczny mózg
    Ostatnie ogniwo w sojuszu człowiek - maszyna
    Czy staliśmy się ofiarami własnej nauki

    Złowroga degeneracja
    Czy to iluzja
    Tu w kosmosie

    Ludzkie upokorzenie
    Ta mutacja
    Naszej ludzkiej rasy

    Czy to koniec
    Czy przekroczymy potrzebę ludzkich przyjemności?
    Czy odrzucimy wszystkie nasze ziemskie skarby?

    Czy ludzkość wycofa się
    Z pola bitwy naturalnej selekcji
    Na rzecz nieorganicznej cyfrowej perfekcji?

    Złowroga degeneracja
    Czy to iluzja
    Tu w kosmosie

    Ludzkie upokorzenie
    Ta mutacja
    Naszej ludzkiej rasy

    Eerie and impressive. It's easy to feel the Futureman being weirded out.
