Ayreon - The Truth Is In Here Lyrics




[Arjen Lucassen:]
Last night I had that dream again
My world was black as night
Plagued by visions of a future world
[Liselotte Hegt:] Mr L, did you take your meds?

[Arjen Lucassen:]
I sang about these dreams
Warning man of his demise
Wasted words that no one heard
[Liselotte Hegt:] Won't you please relax? I'll make your bed

[Arjen Lucassen:]
Today I had that dream again
I roamed among the stars
On the wings of an amazing flight
[Liselotte Hegt:] Mr L, do you feel OK?

[Arjen Lucassen:]
To a place beyond our time
Where the sunlight doesn't warm
And colour bleeds into the night
[Liselotte Hegt:] We may have to increase your dose today

[Arjen Lucassen:]
I know the truth is out there
Didn't you want to see?
I know the truth is in here
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we believe you?
[Arjen Lucassen:] If you want to feel

[Arjen Lucassen:]
Now I have that dream again
I live beneath the waves
In a realm of grace and majesty
[Liselotte Hegt:] Mr L, can I ease your mind?

[Arjen Lucassen:]
In the distant shadows loom
Cold machines rise from the deep
In a world once proud and free
[Liselotte Hegt:] Would you free your thoughts, let it all abide

[Arjen Lucassen:]
I hate to have that dream again
They live inside my head
Feeling everything I feel inside
[Liselotte Hegt:] Mr L can you please be still?

[Arjen Lucassen:]
They speak to me in dreams
They can see all I can see
They have always been my guide
[Liselotte Hegt:] Gotta hush now, please have another pill!

[Arjen Lucassen:] I know the truth is out there
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we believe you?
[Arjen Lucassen:]
If you want to see
I know the truth is here
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we deceive you?
[Arjen Lucassen:] If you want to feel?

[Liselotte Hegt:]
We are all alone
There's no one there
You don't have to be afraid

[x2]
[Arjen Lucassen:] Can't you see through this masquerade?
[Liselotte Hegt:] We are all alone
[Arjen Lucassen:] We are all clones
[Liselotte Hegt:] There's no one there
[Arjen Lucassen:] I am so scared
[Liselotte Hegt:] You don't have to be afraid

[Arjen Lucassen:]
Last night I had that dream again
My world was black as night
Plagued by visions of a future world
[Liselotte Hegt:] Mr L, would you take your rest?

[Arjen Lucassen:]
They speak to me in dreams
They could see all I can see
They have always been my guide
[Liselotte Hegt:] Won't you please relax? I'll make your bed

[Arjen Lucassen:] I know the truth is out there
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we believe you?
[Arjen Lucassen:] If you want to see
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we deceive you?
[Arjen Lucassen:] I know the truth is in here
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we believe you?
[Arjen Lucassen:] If you want to feel?

Ayreon The Truth Is In Here Comments
  1. Mauricio Osuna

    Easily one of the best Ayreon songs :D

  2. Jair Araújo de Lima

    Amazing!

  3. Henrique Schwingel

    I know the truth is out there (Platos)
    I know the truth is in here (Aristotle)

  4. Alexander Ringler

    "We are all clones" at this part arjen is cloning the voices

  5. Io Io

    Lyrics in italiano:

    L'altra notte ho fatto ancora quel sogno
    il mio mondo era nero come la notte
    infestato dalle visioni di un mondo futuro
    Signor L, ha preso le sue medicine?

    Ho cantato di questi sogni
    avvertendo l'uomo della sua morte
    parole inutili, nessuno ha ascoltato
    Cerchi di rilassarsi? Sto facendo su il suo letto

    L'altra notte ho fatto ancora quel sogno
    vagavo tra le stelle
    sulle ali di un incredibile volo
    Signor L, si sente bene?

    In un posto oltre il tempo
    dove la luce solare non arriva
    e i colori sanguinano nella notte
    credo sia meglio aumentare la sua dose oggi

    So che la verità è la fuori
    non vorreste vederla?
    so che la verità è qui
    Perchè dovremmo crederle? Se vuole sentire

    Ora sto facendo ancora quel sogno
    Vivo tra le onde
    in una terra di grazie e splendore
    Signor L, posso darle un calmante?

    Nel telaio di ombre lontane
    fredde macchine cresciute dalle profondità
    in un mondo una volta fiero e libero
    Provate a non pensare, provate a darmi retta

    Odio fare ancora quel sogno
    vivono dentro la mia testa
    sentono tutto quello che provo
    Signor L, può stare fermo per favore?

    Mi parlano nei sogni
    possono vedere tutto quello che io vedo
    sono sempre stati le mie guide
    faccia silenzio ora, ecco, prenda un'altra pillola!

    So che la verità è la fuori
    Perchè dovremmo crederle?
    Se vuole vedere

    So che la verità è qui
    Perchè dovremmo ingannarla? Se vuole sentire?

    Siamo soli
    non c'è nessuno qui
    non deve aver paura
    non potete vedere attraverso questa finzione?
    Siamo tutti soli siamo tutti cloni
    non cè nessuno qui ho così paura
    non deve aver paura
    non potete vedere attraverso questa finzione?

    Siamo tutti soli siamo tutti cloni
    non cè nessuno qui ho così paura
    non deve aver paura
    non potete vedere attraverso questa finzione?

    Siamo tutti soli siamo tutti cloni
    non cè nessuno qui ho così paura

    L'altra notte ho fatto ancora quel sogno
    il mio mondo era nero come la notte
    infestato dalle visioni di un mondo futuro
    Signor L, cerchi di riposare

    Mi parlano nei sogni
    possono vedere tutto quello che io vedo
    sono sempre stati le mie guide
    Cerchi di rilassarsi? Sto facendo su il suo letto

    So che la verità è qui
    Perchè dovermmo crederle? Se volete vedere
    Perchè dovremmo ingannarla? So che la verità è qui
    Perchè dovermmo crederle? Se volete sentire

  6. Liam C

    Mr L. Hey i know that guy!

  7. allypezz

    Can't help but imagine an intro of a pirate show when i hear this song. One of the cheesy one where you see the actors as their names come up on screen.

  8. Moon Microbe

    Truth is in the eye of the beholder... It's all a question of perspective.
    Does this mean that there are many truths or that there is one universal truth with many facets?

    Jæh 24jerde

    good question

  9. THE MIRRORING THAT BINDS INTO FREEDOM

    late nites, frens, terraforming mars

  10. Crawlin Burt

    This whole album is just perfect. Few musical works in my life had given me so much replayability and enjoyment. Layers of famous metal artists, well-mastered, multiple hooks in each song, hypnotic harmonization combined with phasing, and even though it's all prog metal, it's also a musical, you just can't get better than this. Such high effort from people so dedicated to the craft.

    Steven DiBernardo

    Colin Burke So Well Said! I agree that you have nailed it!

  11. Phu Luong

    The truth is in here. We all know it but chose to ignore it

    Steven DiBernardo

    +Phu Luong Only if we choose willful ignorance. The door is open, so few walk through it.

  12. Giuseppe Gavazza

    Can't you see through this masquerade??

    Sergei Polusmiak

    Unfortunately yes.

  13. Paulo Henrique Menezes

    Mictmr. The truth is not here 😂

  14. Henry Saulnier

    This song gives me goosebumps every time.

  15. Leiana Emília

    Portuguese Lyrics ;-)

    A Verdade Está Aqui

    [Em uma tentativa de entender melhor a emoção humana e avisá-los de sua morte, os Eternos enviaram visões a certos indivíduos na Terra. Um desses indivíduos, o Sr. L, passa agora por tratamento psiquiátrico.]

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Ontem à noite eu tive esse sonho novamente
    Meu mundo era negro como a noite
    Atormentado por visões de um mundo futuro
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Sr. L, você tomou seus remédios?

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Eu cantei sobre esses sonhos
    Avisando os homens da sua morte
    Desperdiçando palavras que ninguém ouvia
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Você não vai, por favor, relaxar? Vou fazer sua cama

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Hoje eu tive esse sonho novamente
    Eu andei entre as estrelas
    Nas asas de um voo incrível
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Sr. L, você se sente bem?

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Para um lugar além do nosso tempo
    Onde a luz do sol não aquece
    E a cor sangra na noite
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Podemos ter que aumentar sua dose hoje

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Eu sei que a verdade está lá fora
    Você não quer ver?
    Eu sei que a verdade está aqui
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Por que deveríamos acreditar em você?
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Se você quiser sentir

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Agora eu tenho esse sonho novamente
    Eu moro sob as ondas
    Em um reino de graça e grandiosidade
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Sr. L, posso aliviar sua mente?

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    As sombras distantes se elevam
    Máquinas frias ascendem das profundezas
    Em um mundo outrora orgulhoso e livre
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Você libertaria seus pensamentos, deixaria tudo de lado?

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Eu odeio ter esse sonho novamente
    Eles vivem dentro da minha cabeça
    Sentindo tudo o que sinto por dentro
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Sr. L, por favor, você pode ficar quieto?

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Eles falam comigo em sonhos
    Eles podem ver tudo que eu posso ver
    Eles sempre foram meu guia
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Preciso me acalmar agora, por favor, tome outra pílula!

    [Arjen Lucassen:] Eu sei que a verdade está lá fora
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Por que deveríamos acreditar em você?
    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Se você quiser ver
    Eu sei que a verdade está aqui
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Por que deveríamos enganar você?
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Se você quer sentir?

    [Liselotte Hegt:]
    Estamos todos sozinhos
    Não tem ninguém lá
    Você não precisa ter medo
    [x2]
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Você não consegue ver através dessas máscaras?
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Estamos sozinhos
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Nós somos todos clones
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Não há ninguém lá
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Estou com tanto medo
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Você não precisa ter medo

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Ontem à noite eu tive esse sonho novamente
    Meu mundo era negro como a noite
    Atormentado por visões de um mundo futuro
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Sr. L, você poderia descansar?

    [Arjen Lucassen:]
    Eles falam comigo em sonhos
    Eles podiam ver tudo que eu posso ver
    Eles sempre foram meu guia
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Você não vai, por favor, relaxar? Vou fazer sua cama

    [Arjen Lucassen:] Eu sei que a verdade está lá fora
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Por que deveríamos acreditar em você?
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Se você quiser ver
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Por que deveríamos enganar você?
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Eu sei que a verdade está aqui
    [Liselotte Hegt:] Por que deveríamos acreditar em você?
    [Arjen Lucassen:] Se você quer sentir?

  16. dihedralprime

    Arjen's songwriting is simply out of this world.

    Ignacio Remiro

    I believe he comes from the future xD

  17. Arch Lich

    To mah birthday bro

  18. Jorma Teräs

    AWESOME!!!

  19. God Machine

    I know this is the same Mr. L that's in Lost in the New Real, but wouldn't it be cool if it was also the person whose memories the Forever was experiencing in the Dream Sequencer at the end of The Human Equation? Sure, the Forever were around long before him, but remember it's only after Mars is destroyed that one of them uses it and remembers emotion.

    Of course, Arjen played the Best Friend and not "Me" so that kinda ruins this but I still think it would have been great. Not to mention Mr. L having suffered mental trauma and experiencing his emotions becoming sentient and talking to him after his accident could have made him more susceptible to recieving visions from time telepathy, which of course causes him to end up in a hospital/asylum.

    Pedro Terán

    Super Kick I've always thought the L stood for Lucassen himself, read the lyrics from that perspective

    F B

    Actually, Lost in the New Real is totally seperate from this

    Derk Meister

    Mr L is confirmed by Arjen to be 'The Hippie' from 'Into the Electric Castle'
    As Fabian said, Lost in the New Real is not a part of this. Arjen even labeled it under a different band.

  20. Manuel La Mendola

    Arjen, you are an autentic genius!

  21. Jaroslav Svobodný

    I love this song

  22. King Alex

    Are the dreams coming from Merlin (The Final Experiment), The Electric Castle or both?

    Andrea L.

    This song refers to the hippie character from "Into the Electric Castle": visions come from Forever's world. Those of Ayreon (the minstrel) in "The Final Experiment" are instead made by human scientists who send a message from the future (2084) to try to save humanity from its self-destruction process (in vain?)

    MisticulX

    :/ i thought it was the visions sent back by humanity from e=mc26

    Gina de Hond

    I think this song is pointing to what can happen when people see/feel the truth and are telling other people about this..
    previeus song was Waking Dreams..
    - We will fuel your minds, color your thoughts, come to you in waking dreams.. 'We' are us in the future having a way to send us warnings about our future.

    Than in this song he - sang about this dreams, warning man of his demise, wasted words that no one heard...
    People think he is crazy and put him away and stuff him with pills to make him stop telling the truth.

    In my opinion, I think Arjen here tries to wake us all up.
    In fact, this hole album is about humanity and the truth about us.
    How we started and how we distroy our beautyful planet now.
    -We are all clones; Our 'gods' made us in thier image..
    -I am so scared; Because the truth can kill him when he exposes it, because there are some powerful people on earth that do not want sheeple to become people...
    And the future is not a very good one...
    -can't you see true this mascarade? Everything you learned are lies. Try to see and feel true them.

    Vicente Gutierrez

    Gina de Hond were you high bud?

    Matt D

    Mr L. is/was the hippie and has vauge memories of the event. Merlin sends Ayreons story, which Mr L. receives, and Ayreons visions were the ones sent back in E=MC2. His dreams of Forever and Human Equation are just an Easter egg. Mr L. is also an incarnation of The Colonist, Ayreon, first man on Earth, etc.

    aka "Can you get all the references?": The song

    Mauricio Osuna

    Mandatory Prog Rocker's Self-Referential Track.

    Sistematic Kamaleon

    @Mauricio Osuna Mandatory all times masterpiece.

    Mario Macpui

    I roamed among the stars
    On the wings of an amazing flight - References "Amazing Flight" from Into the Electric Castle

    To a place beyond our time
    Where the sunlight doesn't warm
    And colour bleeds into the night- Also a referrece to ""Amazing Flight"


    Now I have that dream again
    I live beneath the waves
    In a realm of grace and majesty - Reference to "Beneath the Waves" from 01011001 (same album)


    In the distant shadows loom
    Cold machines rise from the deep
    In a world once proud and free - References "The age of Shadows" from 01011001 (same album)


    They live inside my head
    Feeling everything I feel inside- References Forever of the Stars from Into the Electric Castle


    They can see all I can see
    They have always been my guide- References the role of guide the unnamed Forever plays in Into the Electric Castle

    RunicWolves

    @Mario Macpui "I sang about these dreams, warning man of his demise, wasted words that no one heard." that's also a reference to the minstrel from The Final Experiment.

  24. RKW 22

    Arjen's singing is so lovable!

    Crawlin Burt

    I heard he doesn't like his voice. It sounds great.

    Alex Borman

    He's always been really modest and self-critical. Hopefully after the live shows he can see that we love him and his voice <3

    Mauricio Osuna

    @Alex Borman It may be because he surrounds himself with the BEST vocalists there are, so he may or may not be a little shy that his voice can't match theirs, but the thing is, we love his voice for what it is! It may not hit all the notes and ranges, but it's the best to sing his own songs, it conveys the exact feelings he wants to express.

  25. David Romero

    I LOVE this song. It is one of my Arjen favorites ever. Thank you Arjen for this.

  26. SicknessDDOEU

    This is one of my favourite songs of all time.
