Ayreon - Prologue Lyrics




[A. The time telepathy experiment]

THIS IS THE VOICE OF MERLIN. LISTEN WELL,
FOR IT CONCERNS YOU. THIS CHRONICLE COMMENCES IN THE YEAR 2084 A.D.
MANKIND HAS VIRTUALLY DESTROYED ITSELF.
IT'S SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON 'THE FINAL EXPERIMENT'.
SCIENTISTS FROM THE 21ST CENTURY HAVE DEVELOPED
A NEW COMPUTER PROGRAM CALLED 'TIME TELEPATHY'.
BY USING THIS TECHNIQUE THEY HAVE SENT VISIONS OF HUMANITIES'
DECLINE BACK IN TIME. THESE TRANSMISSIONS HAVE BEEN RECEIVED BY THE MIND
OF A BLIND MINSTREL WHO LIVES IN 6TH CENTURY GREAT BRITAIN. HIS NAME ....
IS 'AYREON'.

[B. Overture]

[C. Ayreon's quest]

IT SHALL BE AYREON'S QUEST TO SING OF THESE VISIONS AND THUS WARN THE WORLD
OF ITS IMPENDING DOWNFALL IN ORDER TO CHANGE ITS FUTURE IN A LONG
AND PROSPEROUS ONE. LET US GO BACK TO 'THE DARK AGES'.

    Lyrics in italiano:

    Questa è la voce di Merlino.
    Ascoltate attentamente, perchè tutto ciò vi riguarda.
    Questa storia comincia nell'anno 2084 dC
    L'umanità è sull'orlo dell'autodistruzione.
    La sua sopravvivenza dipende dall'Esperimento Finale.

    Gli scienziati del 21° Secolo hanno sviluppato
    un nuovo software chiamato 'Time Telepathy'.
    Usando questa strumento hanno trasmesso immagini
    del declino dell'umanità indietro nel tempo.
    Queste immagini sono state captate dalla mente di un
    menestrello cieco della Gran Bretagna del 6° Secolo

    Il suo nome è Ayreon

    [b. Overture] (solo strumentale)

    [c. Il compito di Ayreon]

    Sarà compito di Ayreon cantare delle sue visioni
    e avvertire così l'umanità della sua prossima caduta
    in modo da cambiare il suo futuro
    in uno migliore e più duraturo

    Torniamo ora indietro nei Secoli Bui

    Prólogo

    [A. o experimento de Telepatia Temporal]

    Esta é a voz de Merlin. ouça bem,
    pois isso lhe diz respeito. esta crônica começa no ano de 2084 d. C.
    a humanidade praticamente destruiu a si mesma.
    A sobrevivência depende do "Experimento Final".

    Cientistas do século 21 têm desenvolvido um novo programa de computador chamado "telepatia temporal".
    usando esta técnica que enviou visões do declínio da humanidade de volta no tempo. estas transmissões foram recebidas pela mente
    de um menestrel cego que mora no século VI, na Grã-Bretanha. o nome dele ....
    é 'Ayreon'.

    [B. Abertura]

    [C. A jornada de Ayreon]

    será a jornada de Ayreon cantar essas visões e, portanto, advertir o mundo
    de sua queda iminente, a fim de mudar o seu futuro e torná-lo longo e próspero.
    Vamos voltar a "Idade das Trevas".

    1. ,,Prolog":
    [A: ,,Eksperyment Telepatii Czasowej"]

    Oto głos Merlina. Słuchaj uważnie, gdyż dotyczy on ciebie.
    Ta kronika rozpoczyna się w roku 2084 naszej ery.
    Ludzkość praktycznie wyniszczyła się.
    Jej przetrwanie zależy od ,,Ostatecznego Eksperymentu".
    Naukowcy z XXI wieku wynaleźli nowy program komputerowy, zwany ,,Telepatią Czasową".
    Używając tej techniki, wysłali wizje upadku ludzkości daleko w przeszłość.
    Te transmisje zostały odebrane przez umysł ślepego minstrela,
    żyjącego w VI wieku, w Wielkiej Brytanii. Był on znany jako...
    ...Ayreon.
    [B: ,,Uwertura"]
    [C: ,,Misja Ayreona"]

    Będzie misją Ayreona śpiewać o tych wizjach, by ostrzec ludzkość o zbliżającej się zagładzie
    i przez to zmienić jej przyszłość w długą i dostatnią.
    Cofnijmy się zatem, do ,,Wieków Średnich''.
