Ayreon – Tunnel Of Light lyrics

Be joyful, my friends! You will now enter the Tunnel of Light. Let brilliance suffuse your
Souls! Make your choice. Your path is incandescend.

Don't offer me the light, when I only know the darkness
That's where I want to hide
There's a chill in my bones, that I recognise from another life
That's why I'm heading home

[egyptian] ra - heliopolis, ka - anenti
[roman] into Elysium!
[knight] the isle of Avalon!
[egyptian] in the tunnel of light

Don't tempt my heart with hope, in the shadows of broken promises
I guard my dreams
In the bend of a swollen river, in the roots of weeping willows I choose to lie

[egyptian] ra - heliopolis, ka - anenti
[roman] into Elysium!
[knight] the isle of Avalon!
[indian] the legend has begun!
[futureman] our one and only sun!
[egyptian] in the tunnel of light

[egyptian] ra - heliopolis
[highlander] I rest my broken heart, where the willows weep
[egyptian] ka - anenti
[roman] into Elysium
[knight] the isle of Avalon!
[indian] the legend has begun
[egyptian] in the tunnel of light

I will lay me down
I will rest my head
I will close my eyes
