Ayreon – The Decision Tree lyrics

Ahh, my friends! So light afoot, so swift! You have come thus far.
And now - here beneath the ancient, omniscient boughs
Of the Decision Tree, one of you must depart this world of flesh!
Only seven may continue. Hahahah! Only you can decide...

BARBARIAN:
Let it be known - I won't be the one to die!
Honour and glory are heaped upon my name!
Let it be clear - I'm not the one who cries here!
What about the tall one, the one who's lost to shame?

HIGHLANDER:
I've followed princes, I've raised their bloody banners!
I've killed and wounded on the side of right!
I've reaped the harvest, and scattered fields with ashes!
I've buried children, sowed the seeds of hate!

ALL: We're alive!
HIGHLANDER: I've followed princes!
ALL: We'll survive!
HIGHLANDER: I've followed kings!
ALL: We will strive for our freedom!
HIGHLANDER: I will take their lead no more!
ALL: We're alive
HIGHLANDER: I will not lie
ALL: We'll survive
HIGHLANDER: In shallow graves!
ALL: We'll arrive in our Eden

BARBARIAN:
Let it be known, by Thor, the god of Lightning
I have been chosen to do battle at his side!
Let it be clear I was born to go down fighting!
What about the craven, the one who's lost his pride?

HIGHLANDER
Don't speak to me, of honour, pride, and glory!
I've tasted blood, seen your type before!
You talk of battles but all you tell are stories!
You'd see me buried in a shallow grave

ALL: We're alive!
HIGHLANDER: I've followed princes!
ALL: We'll survive!
HIGHLANDER: I've followed kings!
ALL: We will strive for our freedom!
HIGHLANDER: I will take their lead no more!
ALL: We're alive
HIGHLANDER: I will not lie
ALL: We'll survive
HIGHLANDER: In shallow graves!
ALL: We'll arrive in our Eden

HIGHLANDER: I'm nobody's slave...
