Ayreon – Liquid Eternity lyrics

Once a world, endless and free
Horizons unbroken
Now a world of bounded frontiers
The elders have spoken (our home)

Once a world, eternal and blue
Floating, escaping
Now a world that's blinding my view
Shadows shaping (our home)

[Chorus:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield

Once a world of fear and dismay
Of fleeing and hiding
Now a world that's peaceful and safe
So caring and providing, our home...

[Chorus]

Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead
Would you prefer to live the life we've learned to dread
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead (our home)

I'm losing my reason to live
The essence of life

But the system's got so much to give
Or would you rather die...

I'm losing my pride and my joy
My will to believe

Why would you come back and destroy
What we have achieved

[Chorus]

Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead
Would you prefer to live the life we've loved to play
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead

[Chorus]

Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead
Would you prefer to live the life we've loved to play
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead (our home)
