Ayreon – The Fifth Extinction (Glimmer Of Hope - World Of Tomorrow Dreams - Collision Course - From The Ashes lyrics

A] Glimmer of Hope

Anneke van Giersbergen: Through their eyes we will see
Bob Catley: With their hands we will create
Anneke van Giersbergen: In their world we will be free
Bob Catley: With our minds we'll shape their fate

Steve Lee:
Now the die is cast, the first step taken
A glimmer of hope lights up our lives
Visions of the past, dreams forsaken
Forming right before our eyes
We're alive

Anneke van Giersbergen: Through their pain we'll learn to live
Bob Catley: Remember all life has to give

Jorn Lande:
Now the die is cast, the first step taken
A glimmer of hope lights up our lives
Visions of the past, dreams forsaken
Re-ignite the sparkle in our eyes
We're alive! So alive!

B] World of Tomorrow Dreams

Tom Englund: I see a planet, perfect for our needs
Behold our target, a world to plant our seeds
Steve Lee: There must be life, first remove any trace of doubt!
They may all die, don't you think we should check it out?
Daniel Gildenlow: We have no choice, we waited far too long
This is our planet, this is where they belong
Jorn Lande: We may regret this, is this the way it's supposed to be?
A cold execution, a mindless act of cruelty!

Bob Catley:
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

Hansi Kursch:
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

Tom Englund: I see mainly reptiles, a lower form of intelligence
Mere brainless creatures with no demonstrable sentience
Jorn Lande: What makes us superior, we did not do so great ourselves!
A dying race, imprisoned in restricted shells

Bob Catley:
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

Hansi Kursch:
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

Derek Sherinian: Synth solo

C] Collision Course

D] From the Ashes

Tom Englund: And as the smoke slowly rises
Jonas Renkse: Our planet's bare and cold
Tom Englund: But as the black sky brightens
Jonas Renkse: A wondrous world unfolds

Daniel Gildenlow: We're at the dawn of a new age
Bob Catley: As we hear the final cries
Daniel Gildenlow: Ready to enter the next stage
Bob Catley: From the ashes we will rise

Steve Lee: And as the smoke slowly rises
Hansi Kursch: Our planet's bare and cold
Steve Lee: But as the black sky brightens
Hansi Kursch: A wondrous world unfolds

Floor Jansen: We're at the dawn of a new age
Jorn Lande: As we hear the final cries
Floor Jansen: Ready to enter the next stage
Jorn Lande: From the ashes we will rise!

E] Glimmer of Hope Reprise

Daniel Gildenlow:
Now the die is cast, the first step taken
A glimmer of hope lights up our lives
Visions of the past, dreams forsaken
Re-ignite the sparkle in our eyes
We are??¦ alive
