Ayreon - My House On Mars Lyrics




"It is the end of the 21st Century. I have returned to my own childhood. I remember it
all as the Dream Sequencer images mix with my own recollections. This is the day my
sister and I realised that we would never see the planet Earth."

Daddy where are you now
Forgot about your vow?
You promised you'd return and take me to Earth

Did you have to fight that war
What was it all for?
The honor of one's name, what is it worth?

I'm all alone - we're all alone
My future's unknown - our future's unknown
I reach out to the stars out here in my house on Mars

Mother did you hear me cry?
You never told me why
You put me in this world of rock and dust

No friends for playing games
No foes who scorn my name
Computerized machines of steel and rust

Is this my home? - this is our home
This desolate dome - this desolate dome
I call out to the stars: I'm alone in my house on Mars

I'll never smell the ocean breeze
I'll never climb the highest trees
I'll never feel the burning sun
I'll never meet my chosen one... in my house

Daddy I forgive you now
You could not keep your vow
You will never return, I'll never see Earth

My time has come - our time has come
I'm emotionally numb - emotionally numb
I'm headed for the stars, I'm leaving my house on Mars
No friends in my house on Mars
No foes in my house on Mars
I was born in my house on Mars
I will die in my house on Mars

  1. pobesneli krastavac

    This is totally unreal music.
    I like to play this while driving .

  2. Yksi Kaksinen

    and again

  3. Yksi Kaksinen

    take me home again

  4. Io Io

    Lyrics in italiano:

    "Siamo sul finire del 21° Secolo. Sono tornato alla mia infanzia.
    Rivivo tutto non appena le immagini generate dal Dream Sequencer
    si mischiano con i miei ricordi.
    Questo è il giorno in cui mia sorella ed io capimmo
    che non avremmo mai visto il Pianeta Terra."

    Papà dove sei ora
    Hai dimenticato il tuo impegno?
    Ci avevi promesso che saresti tornato e mi avresti portato sulla Terra

    Hai dovuto combattere la guerra
    Ma per cosa poi?
    L'onore del nome di qualcuno, a cosa è serve?

    Sono tutto solo - siamo tutti soli
    Il mio futuro è incerto - il nostro futuro è incerto
    Raggiungo le stelle qui fuori nella mia casa su Marte

    Madre mia hai sentito piangere?
    Non mi hai mai detto perchè
    mi hai portato in questo mondo di roccia e polvere

    Nessun amico con cui giocare
    Nessun nemico che prenda in giro il mio nome
    Macchine computerizzate di acciaio e ruggine

    É questa la mia casa? - Questa è la nostra casa
    Questa palazzo desolato - questo palazzo desolato
    Lo grido alle stelle: sono solo nella mia casa su Marte

    Non respirerò la brezza dell'oceano
    Non mi arrampicherò sugli alberi più alti
    Non sentirò il calore del sole
    Non incontrerò mai il mio amore
    nella mia casa

    Papà ti perdono ora
    Non hai potuto mantenere la tua promessa
    Non ritornerai mai più, non vedrò mai la Terra

    La mia ora è giunta - la nostra ora è giunta
    Sono svuotato di ogni emozione - svuotato di ogni emozione
    Mi dirigo verso le stelle, sto lasciando la mia casa su Marte

    Nessun amico nella mia casa su Marte
    Nessun nemico nella mia casa su Marte
    Sono nato nella mia casa su Marte
    Morirò nella mia casa su Marte

  5. Janderson Dias

    Revyl Okesh

    Goodnight.

    fnglert

    o7 you magnificent bastard.

  19. Marc Moingeon

    One of my top favourite songs by AYREON. Dreamy and epic at the same time.. Johan Edlund's vocals are really excellent... the kind of song I'd love to sing myself...

  20. Light DRGN20

    Might I ask, if he is alone, why does he have vocals backing him up, has the computer been coded to sing when people nearby are singing? If so, why, who thought that would ever be nessisary?

  21. Мартин Костов

    Johan Edlund is greath singer

  22. Kristy Emanuel Fontes

    Hypnotic..

  23. TriHard7

    This is one of my favorites. The way you tell the story, makes me feel so immersed...

  24. VideoSuperMaster

    They really need to make movies out of these albums.

  25. Panic Station

    This is the kind of sadness few people really experience, but is a primal fear of everyone, weather we know it or not. Imagine for a moment you lived on mars, with the knowledge that you'll never get to see earth. Ever.

  26. Fabio Sousa

    I become pensive whenever I hear this song. I feel lonely.

  27. Bruno Sampaio

    Sad, but amazing song!

  28. Romi J

    esta cancon me vuelve loco!

  29. Panic Station

    God this song is so sad....

  30. Marco Antonio Eguino

    Beautiful!

    Portuguese Lyrics ;-)

    Minha Casa em Marte

    "É o fim do século 21. Voltei para a minha própria infância. Eu me lembro de tudo a medida que as imagens do Sequenciador de Sonhos se misturam com minhas próprias lembranças. Este é o dia minha irmã e eu percebemos que nunca veríamos o planeta Terra."

    [Johan Edlund]

    Papai, onde você está agora
    Esqueceu sobre sua promessa?
    Você prometeu que voltaria e me levaria para a Terra

    Você tinha que lutar essa guerra?
    Pelo que foi tudo aquilo?
    A honra de um nome, o que vale isso?

    [Johan Edlund] Eu estou sozinho
    [Floor Jansen] Nós estamos sozinhos
    [Johan Edlund] Meu futuro é desconhecido
    [Floor Jansen] O nosso futuro é desconhecido
    [Johan Edlund] Eu estendo a mão para as estrelas
    [Johan Edlund, Floor Jansen] daqui em minha casa em Marte

    [Johan Edlund]
    Mãe, você me ouviu chorar?
    Você nunca me disse por que
    Você me colocou neste mundo de pedra e poeira

    Nenhum amigo para jogar jogos
    Nenhum inimigo que despreza meu nome
    Máquinas computadorizadas de aço e ferrugem

    [Johan Edlund] Esta é a minha casa?
    [Floor Jansen] Esta é a nossa casa
    [Johan Edlund] Esta cúpula desolada
    [Floor Jansen] Esta cúpula desolada
    [Johan Edlund] Eu grito para as estrelas:
    [Johan Edlund, Floor Jansen] Eu estou sozinho na minha casa em Marte

    [Johan Edlund]
    Eu nunca vou sentir o cheiro da brisa do oceano
    Eu nunca vou subir nas árvores mais altas
    Eu nunca vou sentir o sol ardente
    Eu nunca encontrarei o meu escolhido ... na minha casa

    Papai eu te perdoo agora
    Você não pode manter sua promessa
    Você nunca irá voltar, eu nunca vou ver a Terra

    [Johan Edlund] Minha hora chegou
    [Floor Jansen] Nossa hora chegou
    [Johan Edlund] Estou emocionalmente entorpecido
    [Floor Jansen] Emocionalmente entorpecido
    [Johan Edlund] Eu estou indo para as estrelas

    [Johan Edlund, Floor Jansen]
    Estou saindo da minha casa em Marte
    Nenhum amigo na minha casa em Marte
    Nenhum inimigo na minha casa em Marte
    Eu nasci na minha casa em Marte
    Eu vou morrer na minha casa em Marte

  36. Anonymous

    looks like final fantasy 6 art

  37. AD Nauseum

    Elon Musks favorite song

  38. BleakVision

    The rest of the album could never live up to this

    Lunarsight

    Dunno - I like the Neal Morse ending. It creates a nice counterpoint to this.

  39. Ac1dG0d Custom DOOM wad mapper

    Looks like a scene from the movie Fantastic Planet or something...

  40. MoonlapseVertigo

    *deep voice* In my house.

  43. Brian Asciak

    Still one of my favorites songs, i will listen weekly

  44. rose_mary2501

    Been listening to it for a month now, I just cannot stop, it is so good! Love Ayreon!

  45. Behemoth782

    "I'll never smell the ocean breeze"
    Snare: BAT! BATBAT!

  46. Ricardo Minniti R. Pereira

    I am moved by this song every single time I hear it. The raw emotions are conveyed in every melody and line superbly. Thank you for this wonderful song.

  47. Behemoth782

    I fucking love the Final Countdown synths.

  48. Maxim Klimov

    Lovely song!

  49. Giga Baidoshvili

    Get your shit together Elon and take your child back from Mars, wtf man!

  50. Bruno Colafranceschi

    Qué temazo, Arjen

  51. Tony MP

    Feels like the epic music from the gameboy game ''Golden Sun'', I close my eyes and travel to another dimension while listening to this. Thanks Arjen..

    MegaZeroX7

    Golden Sun's soundtrack is fantastic! Motoi Sakuraba is a genius for figuring out how to get such complex music on such a simple machine!

    ᅚᅚ ᅚᅚᅚᅚ

    I had the same thought all these years. Nice to see someone else having the same association

  52. Anders Midnatt

    Oh... this is beyond any words, only the charm of impressions...

  53. Lucho Marra

    Es lo mas hermoso que he escuchado siempre,
    siempre lloro con este tema.

  54. Manmeet Singh

    Johan Edlund you beauty.

  55. Miguel Ángel Socías

    I need a wallpaper from this artwork in good resolution! :(
    Somebody knows where can I find it?

    fishyfish1094

    Google images? just look go to advanced settings and look for high resolution

    Miguel Ángel Socías

    Oh yeah, I looked it there, but only square resolutions. There are some widescreen resolutions but are the same picture of this video with the name of a song and sponsors itunes, spotify, etc.

  56. S Bird

    This is just an amazing song. I don't know how to describe it properly - you knew what story you wanted to tell and you did it perfectly. How can a song about the death of emotion be so emotional? Because it really is! I love it.

  57. Behemoth the Cat

    I will leave my house on "mars", i'll reach the stars

  59. Fred Sussekind

    Espetacular, vale cada nota musical!

    Renato

    Indescritível a sensação de ouvir essa canção tão profunda, triste e maravilhosa. Resume bem o que entendo por "desolação".

  60. Xarfax321

    You know, listening to this makes me want to work on my sci-fi novel. :)

    _NIESTETY OPIS ZOSTAŁ ZABLOKOWANY PRZEZ CENZURĘ_

    Tato, gdzie teraz jesteś
    Zapomniałeś o swoim przyrzeczeniu?
    Obiecałeś, że wrócisz
    I zabierzesz mnie na Ziemię

    Czy musiałeś walczyć w tej wojnie
    Na co to wszystko było?
    Honor czyjegoś imienia, ile to warte?

    Jestem sam - Jesteśmy sami
    Moja przyszłość nieznana - Nasza przyszłość nieznana
    Sięgam ku gwiazdom
    Tu, w moim domu na Marsie

    Mamo, czy słyszałaś mój płacz?
    Nigdy nie powiedziałaś mi dlaczego
    Wydałaś mnie na ten świat skał i pyłu

    Bez przyjaciół do gier i zabaw
    Bez wrogów którzy gardzili by mym imieniem
    Tylko skomputeryzowane maszyny, ze stali i rdzy

    Czy to mój dom? - To jest nasz dom
    Ta wyludniona kopuła - Ta wyludniona kopuła
    Wołam ku gwiazdom:
    Jestem sam w moim domu na Marsie

    Nigdy nie powącham morskiej bryzy
    Nigdy nie wespnę się na wysokie drzewa
    Nigdy nie poczuję palącego słońca
    Nigdy nie spotkam swojej wybranki

    W moim domu

    Tato, wybaczam ci
    Nie mogłeś dotrzymać swojego przyrzeczenia
    Ty nigdy nie wrócisz, ja nigdy nie zobaczę Ziemi

    Mój czas nadszedł - Nasz czas nadszedł
    Jestem emocjonalnie drętwy - Emocjonalnie drętwy
    Skierowany ku gwiazdom
    Opuszczam swój dom na Marsie
    Bez przyjaciół w moim domu na Marsie
    Bez wrogów w moim domu na Marsie
    Narodziłem się w moim domu na Marsie
    I umrę w moim domu na Marsie

  62. LaserMan

    Never realized this song featured an 18 year old Floor Jansen! Wow.

    Anders Midnatt

    But there she is, as young as Idunn, though wiser than Mimir.

    Puny Poppy

    Never knew that she was THAT young at the time..

    Revyl Okesh

    Yeap, that (double-)album was when I first heard her, back when they were first released.

  63. kociol21

    I'm pretty sure that this got released in 2000, not 2004 ;)

    DoomchildXXL

    The double album re-release is from 2004.

  64. TrancePort21

    Johan Edlunds voice fits this song perfectly. <3

  65. Augusto Rudzinski

    Your best song.

  66. Dudok22

    Best song on part 1! Universal Migrator is probably my favourite Ayreon album (Well there is not an album from Ayreon that I don't like)

  67. Francois Roulet

    Yes, the best Ayreon!

  68. Brandon G

    Amazing album.
