Ayreon - The Sixth Extinction Lyrics




[1. Echoes On The Wind]

[Tom Englund:]
It's the calm before the storm
It's the quiet before the war
It's the time when all will be decided.
[Steve Lee:] All will be decided
[Tom Englund:] If nobody hears the echoes on the wind

[Tom Englund:] It's the end of the chain
[Steve Lee:] Destruction of the fittest
[Tom Englund:] It's the end of our reign
[Steve Lee:] We've seen it all before
[Tom Englund:] It's the end of man's evolution
[Steve Lee:] The end of evolution
[Tom Englund:] For nobody heeds the echoes on the wind

[2. Radioactive Grave]

[*]
[Hansi Kursch:] Do you hear the sirens?
[Daniel Gildenlöw:] Do you see them burst?
[Steve Lee:] Do you feel the fire?
[Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] All the world's a radioactive grave!
[Tom Englund:] I can hear them crying
[Bob Catley:] I can see the fear
[Jorn Lande:] I can see them dying
[Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] Washed away by deadly gamma waves!

[Hansi Kursch:] Do you hear them calling?
[Daniel Gildenlöw:] Do you see them hurt?
[Steve Lee:] Do you feel them falling?
[Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] All the world's a blazing funeral pyre!

[Tom Englund:] I can hear the wailing!
[Bob Catley:] I can see the wrath!
[Jorn Lande:] I can see them failing
[Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] Washed away by a scorching sea of fire!

[repeat *]

[3. 2085]

[Jonas Renske:] Silence's so loud, not a soul... left alive
Darkness's a shroud
2085
All our dreams have disappeared
They burned down... tree of life
Confirming all that we feared
2085

[Bob Catley:]
Don't give up, remember how we felt
Fire rushing through our veins
Now it's the time to rise up from our hell
Now it's the time to free our brains

[Steve Lee:]
The meaning of life is to give life meaning
Go too fast, move too slow.
Restore the balance between thinking and feeling
Open up and let it flow

[Jonas Renske:]
No side has won, struggle to... survive
Our quest here is done
2085
All our hopes have disappeared
Our race will... not thrive
Time will not recall the year
2085

[Daniel Gildenlöw:]
Don't give in, remember all we learned
The spark of life if did ignite
We regained the rage for which we yearned
We regained our will to fight

[Jorn Lande:]
We must resolve this human equation
We're already dead if we don't try
To welcome challenge, genetic variation
Stop the machines, prepare to die!

[4. To The Planet Of Red]

[Instrumental]

[5. Spirit Of The Wind]

[Tom Englund:] He's the last man alive
[Steve Lee:] Searching for the answer
[Tom Englund:] Knowing he won't survive
[Steve Lee:] To the mystery of live
[Tom Englund:] Relives the past, and dreams of the future
[Steve Lee:] Dreaming of the future
[Tom Englund:] And soon he'll set free
[Steve Lee:] And the sleeper will awake
[Tom Englund:] The spirit of the wind

[6. Complete The Circle]

Make us whole, migrator soul
Follow you home, complete the Circle
We must survive, restore our lives
The way I'll show, complete the circle [x2]

[Hansi Kursch:]
Send back visions
Into the past
Of war and decay

[Floor Jansen:]
Hear the final cries!
I can see the fear
In a world without walls

[Anneke van Giersbergen:] Through their eyes

[Tom Englund:]
I see them dying
We have to teach them
Migrator soul

[Daniel Gildenlöw:]
We will gain our will to fight
We're at the dawn
We found a way

[Steve Lee:]
I know we'll make it in the end
Listen to the one man

[Bob Catley:]
We gave them language
What did they say?
What did they learn?

[Jorn Lande:]
We have no choice
We are the future
We are the pain
Complete the Circle!

[Steve Lee:] AH!!!!

    Lyrics in italiano:

    [1. Echi nel vento]

    É la calma prima della tempesta
    É la pace prima della battaglia
    É l'ora in cui tutto viene deciso
    tutto sarà deciso
    se nessuno presta attenzione agli echi nel vento

    É la fine della catena
    Distruzione totale
    É la fine del nostro regno
    l'avevamo previsto
    É la fine dell'evoluzione umana
    La fine dell'evoluzione
    perchè nessuno presta attenzione agli echi nel vento

    [2. Tomba radioattiva]

    Puoi sentire le sirene?
    Puoi vedere la loro luce?
    Puoi sentire il fuoco?
    tutto il mondo è una tomba radioattiva!
    Posso sentirli piangere
    Posso sentire la paura
    Posso vederli morire
    spazzati via da mortali raggi gamma!

    Puoi sentirli chiamare?
    Li vedi soffrire?
    Li senti cadere?
    Tutto il mondo è una pira funebre accesa

    Posso sentire i pianti!
    Posso vedere l'ira!
    Posso sentirli fallire
    spazzati via da un bruciante mare di fuoco!

    Puoi sentire le sirene?
    Puoi vedere la loro luce?
    Puoi sentire il fuoco?
    tutto il mondo è una tomba radioattiva!
    Posso sentirli piangere
    Posso sentire la paura
    Posso vederli morire
    spazzati via da mortali raggi gamma!

    Puoi sentirli chiamare?
    Li vedi soffrire?
    Li senti cadere?
    Tutto il mondo è una pira funebre accesa

    Posso sentire i pianti!
    Posso vedere l'ira!
    Posso sentirli fallire
    spazzati via da un bruciante mare di fuoco!

    [3. 2085]

    Il silenzio è così rumoroso, non un'anima si è salvata
    L'oscurità è un sudario
    2085
    Tutti i nostri sogni si sono infranti
    sono bruiati... albero di vita
    I nostri timori sono confermati
    2085

    Non arrenderti, ricorda come ci sentivamo
    il fuoco scorre nelle nostre vene
    ora è il momento di risorgere dall'inferno
    ora è il momento di liberare le nostre menti

    Il senso della vita è are un senso alla vita
    vai troppo forte, muoviti troppo piano
    riporta l'equilibrio tra ragione e sentimento
    apriti e fai che fluisca

    Non ci sono vincitori, battaglia per la sopravvivenza
    il nostro compito è terminato
    2085
    tutte le nostre speranze si sono dissolte
    la nostra razza non sopravviverà
    il tempo non ricorderà l'anno
    2085

    Non arrenderti, ricorda tutto quello che abbiamo imparato
    la scintilla di vita se accesa
    abbiamo riguadagnato la rabbia che desideravamo
    abbiamo riguadagnato la nostra voglia di combattere

    Dobbiamo risolvere quest'equazione umana
    siamo morti se non ci proviamo
    accettare la sfida, variazioni genetiche
    fermate le macchine, preparatevi a morire!

    [4. Sul pianeta rosso]

    (solo strumentale)

    [5. Spirito del Vento]

    É l'ultimo uomo in vita
    in cerca della risposta
    sapendo che non sopravviverà
    al mistero della vita
    rivivendo il passato e sogni del futuro
    sognando il futuro
    e presto sarà liberato
    e l'addormentato si sveglierà
    lo spirito del vento

    [6. Completa il cerchio]

    Rendici un tutt'uno, anima del Migrator
    Ti seguiamo a casa, completa il cerchio
    dobbiamo sopravvivere, ricominciare le nostre vite
    Mostrerò la via, completa il cerchio
    Mostrerò la via, completa il cerchio

    Invia visioni
    nel passato
    di guerra e decadenza

    Ascolta le grida finali!
    posso vedere la paura
    in un mondo senza mura

    Attraverso i loro occhi

    Li vedo morire
    dobbiamo insegnargli
    Anima del Migrator

    Conquisteremo la nostra voglia di lottare
    siamo all'inizio
    abbiamo trovato una via

    So che ce la faremo alla fine
    ascolta l'unico uomo

    Abbiamo dato loro il Linguaggio
    cos'hanno detto?
    Cos'hanno imparato?

    Non abbiamo scelta
    siamo il futuro
    siamo il dolore
    completa il cerchio!

    Ahhhh!

    Seems the title of this song isn’t quite dissimilar to our eventual reality. I’m going to be listening to this song on The Day that the World Breaks Down

  6. Umbra Mortis

    If Yosemite Sam could listen to this song, he would say the outro is the most goosebumpinest, cold-sweatinest, boner erectinest, drip-inducinest riff he's ever heard.

  7. Chuck Fair

    Bravo Arjen

  8. Roberta Spadaccino

    The wonderful song ......magnifica!!!!!!!🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝

  9. Wilson Stanley Ferman

    Still listening!!! 2019 Best song ever!!!

  10. w7class

    I like this 1000000 times more than anything dream theater has produced from 2002 onwards...

  11. Danton Culte

    To be true I gotta say I love Ayreon since I'm a child, when my father purchased The Final Experiment and we listened it all along.
    At the time I couldn't understand the lyrics .
    But I loved it. When I could I looked upon the Internet and that was a Blast, I listened to every albums over and over and growing up I understood what this was all about.
    I was shocked and I cried to some songs from every albums, not only cried ofc those songs are so inspirational and helped me achieved a great deal in my life for now.
    The Source was epic when it was released but,
    But my top 3 from Ayreon would always be Into The Electric Castle, The Human Equation, and 01011001. Too much feels on those 3, but the Universal Migrator also holds a special place.
    If Arjen and Ayreon ever tours in Paris I'm gonna bring my dad and cry of joy.
    "Stop the Machine! Prepare to Die"

  12. TYPE-7

    Perfection .

  13. Uberkamper

    A masterpiece Arjen

  14. Vicente Gutierrez

    One of the best songs ever

  15. cony virguez

    😍🎼🎼

  16. DIABLOVT12

    Summer 2010, a good friend of mine from Germany sent me this song... Ever since, I'm a die hard fan!

  17. Esther Klören

    This is the type of song that's so awesome I can literally write a five-page essay about how awesome it is.

  18. AsTheSeasonsGray

    Outro = goosebumps and cold shivers. Every. Single. Time.

  19. Serenity'sEdge

    I heard Y around the time of release, but only now it dawns on me I rather can't live without it, and instead of downloading of course I'll buy it to pay homage to the right of the hard working artists, the pleasures it gave & will give. What a service to humanity Ayreon is! Takk/thanks from Norway for releasing it freely [come over on a camp trip in summertime and behold the peaceful fjords :]

  20. Christian Sousa Queiroz

    The best!

  21. Lucien Immink

    Humanity: we need more ayreon!

  22. Lucien Immink

    Parents: we tried ... and failed

  23. Lucien Immink

    Children: we listened to this

    I thought Jonas Renske couldn't growl anymore
    I was wrong

    Portuguese Lyrics ;-)

    A Sexta Extinção

    [Os Eternos observam com horror como cada último humano na Terra perece em um apocalipse nuclear.]

    [Ato I - Ecos do vento]

    [Tom Englund:]
    É a calma antes da tempestade
    É o silêncio antes da guerra
    É a hora em que tudo será decidido.
    [Steve Lee:] Tudo será decidido
    [Tom Englund:] Se ninguém ouve os ecos do vento

    [Tom Englund:] É o fim da cadeia
    [Steve Lee:] Destruição do mais apto
    [Tom Englund:] É o fim do nosso reinado
    [Steve Lee:] Já vimos isso tudo antes
    [Tom Englund:] É o fim da evolução do homem
    [Steve Lee:] O fim da evolução
    [Tom Englund:] Pois ninguém presta atenção aos ecos do vento

    [Ato II - Sepultura Radioativa]

    [Hansi Kursch:] Você ouve as sirenes?
    [Daniel Gildenlöw:] Você os vê explodir?
    [Steve Lee:] Você sente o fogo?
    [Jonas Renske e Floor Jansen:] Todo o mundo é uma sepultura radioativa!
    [Tom Englund:] Eu posso ouvi-los chorando
    [Bob Catley:] Eu posso ver o medo
    [Jorn Lande:] Eu posso vê-los morrendo
    [Jonas Renske e Floor Jansen:] Eliminados por raios gama mortais!

    [Hansi Kursch:] Você os ouve chamando?
    [Daniel Gildenlöw:] Você os vê feridos?
    [Steve Lee:] Você os sente caindo?
    [Jonas Renske e Floor Jansen:] Todo o mundo é uma pira funerária em chamas!

    [Tom Englund:] Eu posso ouvir o lamento!
    [Bob Catley:] Eu posso ver a ira!
    [Jorn Lande:] Eu posso vê-los falhando
    [Jonas Renske e Floor Jansen:] Eliminados por um mar escaldante de fogo!

    [Ato III - 2084]

    [A guerra acabou, mas a humanidade também. No entanto, um lampejo de esperança ainda permanece, pois esta experiência ensinou aos Eternos algo importante.]

    [Jonas Renske:] O silêncio é tão alto, nenhuma alma ... saiu viva
    A escuridão é uma mortalha
    2084
    Todos os nossos sonhos desapareceram
    Eles queimaram ... árvore da vida
    Confirmando tudo o que temíamos
    2084

    [Bob Catley:]
    Não desista, lembre-se de como nos sentimos
    Fogo correndo em nossas veias
    Agora é a hora de se levantar do nosso inferno
    Agora é a hora de libertar nossos cérebros

    [Steve Lee:]
    O significado da vida é dar à vida significado
    Vai tão rápido, se move tão devagar.
    Restaure o equilíbrio entre o pensar e sentir
    Abra e deixe fluir

    [Jonas Renske:]
    Nenhum lado ganhou, luta para ... sobreviver
    Nossa missão aqui é feita
    2084
    Todas as nossas esperanças desapareceram
    Nossa raça ... não irá prosperar
    O tempo não lembrará o ano
    2084

    [Daniel Gildenlöw:]
    Não desista, lembre-se de tudo que aprendemos
    A faísca da vida se inflamar
    Nós recuperamos a raiva pela qual nós ansiamos
    Nós recuperamos nossa vontade de lutar

    [Jorn Lande:]
    Nós devemos resolver esta equação humana
    Nós já estamos mortos se não tentarmos
    Para receber o desafio, a variação genética
    Pare as máquinas, prepare-se para morrer!

    [Ato IV - Para o planeta Vermelho]

    [Instrumental]

    [Ato V - Espírito do vento]

    [Sem mais nada para eles na Terra, os Eternos concentram sua atenção no último sobrevivente de Marte, enquanto aguardam a chegada do Novo Migrador Universal para leva-los para fora da Era das Sombras.]

    [Tom Englund:] Ele é o último homem vivo
    [Steve Lee:] Procurando pela resposta
    [Tom Englund:] Sabendo que ele não vai sobreviver
    [Steve Lee:] Para o mistério da vida
    [Tom Englund:] Revive o passado e sonha com o futuro
    [Steve Lee:] Sonhando com o futuro
    [Tom Englund:] E logo ele vai libertar
    [Steve Lee:] E o dorminhoco vai acordar
    [Tom Englund:] O espírito do vento

    [Ato VI - Complete o Ciclo]

    Nos torne completos, Alma do Migrador
    Siga para sua casa, complete o ciclo
    Nós devemos sobreviver, restaurar nossas vidas
    A maneira que eu mostrarei, complete o ciclo [x2]

    [Hansi Kursch:]
    Envie visões de volta
    Para o passado
    De guerra e decadência

    [Floor Jansen:]
    Ouça os gritos finais!
    Eu posso ver o medo
    Em um mundo sem paredes

    [Anneke van Giersbergen:] Através dos seus olhos eu....

    [Tom Englund:]
    Eu os vejo morrendo
    Nós temos que ensiná-los
    Alma do Migrador

    [Daniel Gildenlöw:]
    Nós vamos ganhar a nossa vontade de lutar
    Estamos no alvorecer
    Nós encontramos um caminho

    [Steve Lee:]
    Eu sei que vamos fazer isso no final
    Ouça o aviso

    [Bob Catley:]
    Nós lhes demos a língua
    O que eles disseram?
    O que eles aprenderam?

    [Jorn Lande:]
    Nós não temos escolha
    Nós somos o futuro
    Nós somos a dor
    Complete o Ciclo!

    [Steve Lee:] AH !!!!

    [1. Echoes On The Wind]

    [Tom Englund:]
    It's the calm before the storm

    It's the time when all will be decided.
    [Steve Lee:] All will be decided
    [Tom Englund:] If nobody hears the echoes on the wind

  27. tundermesemondo

    Steve's voice, though.

  28. Gloria R. Giménez G.

    Amazing end! Holly smokes!

  29. Julio Fourcade

    So nostalgic end !!! I want more of them !!! Don’t give up and go on !!!

  30. Gina de Hond

    The meaning of life is to give life meaning. That line is my favorite😶

    wladyalx2

    Mine too.

    Simon Wilkins

    Also the staff in the last school I went to.

  31. LooKerHood

    best final ever

  32. MisticulX

    the opening to this song is amazing

    Mare or stallion, There's far more inside

    Tom tum tom tum tom tum tom tum tom tum tom tum

    MisticulX

    i mean after that part :| when the other instruments join

  33. Mauricio Osuna

    The "Migrator Soul" part is just... Just... <3

    Arch Lich

    It usually moves me to tears. (Migrator Soul = My Greater Soul)

  34. Thiago Dantas

    Now, a question is echoing inside my head. TH-1 turned into the new frame (or turned to be the old one, idk) what happened but what after it? The migrator came again, but still TH-1 around? And Jorn says "stop the machines", what make me think that they are in control, so, there's no Frame around. But, what about TH-1? Was "he" the Eletric Castle from the old album and a different Eletric Castle from Alpha Frame(a.k.a. Eletric Castle)? Ahhh so many questions....

    Francisco Matas

    I think that the answer to your questions depend on the answer that forevers gave to the questions on The Human Compulsion.

    Do we belong here, do we hide behind our dreams?
    Can we live without machines?

    Can we resist our compulsion to explore?
    Or will we always hunt for more?

    Liquid Eternity perpetuates our lives
    But will it paralyze our minds?

    Without the danger, can we still evolve?
    Will our passions all dissolve?

    Remember Alpha, the source of human life
    Will our history be revived?

    Who knows what they did between The source and 01011001. Listening to the Age of Shadows It seems that The Source happened looong time ago...

    jpvanoudheusden

    The song "March of the macines" from The Source has the same melody as "Forever of the stars" from Into The Electric Castle. Makes you think eh... *tum tum tuuuum*

    The Warlocke

    I also feel there is a connection between TH-1 and Forever of the Stars. After all, FotS is noted to be 'different' from the other Forevers.

    The Warlocke

    also ommggg Play those two at the same time, synched up at the beginning if you really want a freaky experience

    KGWay

    Forever of the Stars is the literal "echo on the wind" that only the blind minstrel in Final Experiment can hear. It's an embodiment of a living forever converted in a way that can physically pass through time, and while it calls out to humans and even tries to shape them to "complete the circle" by means of the Electric Castle that also exists outside of time, it realizes that it can't affect anybody permanently. I think. I don't know, it's all so convoluted and amazing.

  35. Francisco Pérez Hofmann

    The best song to close on of the best Albums ever! You can't compare this with nothing!

  36. Manuel La Mendola

    6:57-7:36

  37. Madelin Aov

    Just love it ! \m/

  38. Lucas Lima

    Goosebumps every time on Anneke's final part.

    GenMVeers

    She's the greatest. Personally, goosebumps every time, ever since 2008, from 8:24 onwards.

    Guillaume

    Lucas Lima Same. And i feel the same with Marcela's voice in the final of The Human Equation

    Magdalena J. Niemczura

    Floor's and Anneke's final lines are epic. I always get back to this part multiple times <3

    MR. Sentai

    It gave me chills everytime I hear this part

  39. Sonikku94

    Probably my favorite song of all time.

  40. Blaze Tutors

    Is there an album better than this one? I think it isn't. Sounds better than anything

    TheBoundFenrir

    Julio: As true as that may be, I can't get enough of Nils in The Source...

    Jameeeesh

    Is it lame to mention The Human Equation?

    Ah, screw it.

    I like The Human Equation...

    The Human Equation is better balanced and a better album in my opinion. This album have bad things like the weak "Web of Lies" or the random "Connect the Dots". "THE" is almost perfect.

    Agreed with all of you, but my personal best album from Arjen Is Universal Migrator part 1 and 2 :)

    My personal favorite is the Human Equation, mainly because it is the first album I heard from Ayreon secondly because how it ties into the larger story at the very end.

    Victoria Lacroix You could say that it's "nuclear".

    So true. Over 30 years of metal and 9 years of this masterpiece, and it still stands unsurpassed. Google "sixth extinction biological annihilation" right now, and you'll see it's actual current news... 2085? If we're lucky.

    I tear up at the end, too... every single time I listen to this song. "We give them language, What did the say? What did they learn?"... What a powerfull reflection in the times we are living. Impossible not to break up.

    @GenMVeers Yeah, holocene extinction event.

    We are what the meteor was for the cretaceous-paleogene extinction event, we just continue to rape this planet with our existence.
