Ayreon – Age Of Shadows lyrics
We never saw this coming
Pride comes before our fall
We never heeded the warning
Buried deep within us all

The age of shadows has begun
(Giant machines blot out the sun)
Frozen lands becoming known
(The age of shadows has begun)

The age of Shadows has begun
(I won't accept what we've become)
We stand to lose more than we've won
(The age of Shadows has begun)

Our quenchless thirst for knowledge
Our urge to change and grow
Our need to expand the nation / extermination
Made us rise from the depths below

The age of shadows has begun
(Giant machines blot out the sun)
Frozen lands becoming known
(The age of shadows has begun)

The age of Shadows has begun
(I won't accept what we've become)
We stand to lose more than we've won
(The age of Shadows has begun)

No more aggression
(No more initiative)
No more suppression
(no more emotions)
No more resection
(no more of all the feelings that shaped our hearts and made us who we are)
No more possessions
(No more suspicious)
No more obsessions
(No more sensations)
No more depression
(no more of all the passions that shaped our hearts and made us who we are)

Time (time, time)
But a passageway (a passageway, a passageway)
The beginning of the end (of the end)
An end that never was (was, was, was)
Time (time, time)
But a curve in space (curve in space, curve in)

We are forever (we are forever, we are forever))
Eternal prisoners in time (in time, in time)
We are forever (we are forever)
Caught in our cold inertia
Longing, hoping, waiting, for no...

Forever we are, forever we learn
Forever we live a lie, forever sleeping by
And forever we flee, (forever we flee)
Forever we be, Forever is but our dreams
Forever is but a scream and forever we try
Forever we die, the spell of life for all
Possessed for life, not enough
Longing, hoping, waiting, for no one
Never enough

Zero (one) one (zero) one (zero) zero (zero)
Zero (one) one (zero) zero (one) zero (one)
Zero (one) one (zero) one (one) zero (zero)
Zero (one) one (one) zero (zero) zero (zero)

Zero (one) one (zero) one (zero) zero (zero)
Zero (one) one (zero) zero (one) zero (one)
Zero (one) one (zero) one (one) zero (zero)
Zero (one) one (one) zero (zero) zero (zero)

Off (on) on (off) off (on) on (off)
Off (on) on (off) on (on) on (on)
Off (on) on (on) off (off) on (on)
Off (on) on (off) off (on) off (on)
Off (on) on (on) off (on) on (off)
Off (on) on (off) off (on) off (on)
Off (on) on (on) off (off) on (off)

No (yeah) yeah (yeah) no (no) yeah (yeah)
No (yeah) yeah (no) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
No (yeah) yeah (yeah) no (no) yeah (yeah)

No (yeah) yeah (yeah) no (no) yeah (yeah)
No (yeah) yeah (no) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
No (yeah) yeah (yeah) no (no) yeah (yeah)

Forever we try, forever we die, forever, forever
Forever we try, forever we die, forever, forever
Forever we tie, forever we die, forever, forever
Longing, hoping, waiting, for no one

No more aggression
(No more initiative)
No more suppression
(no more emotions)
No more resection
(no more of all the feelings that shaped our hearts and made us who we are)
No more possessions
(No more suspicious)
No more obsessions

No more depression
(no more of all the passions that shaped our hearts and made us who we are

The age of shadows has begun
(Giant machines blot out the sun)
Frozen lands becoming known
(The age of shadows has begun)

The age of Shadows has begun
(I won't accept what we've become)
We stand to lose more than we've won
(The age of Shadows has begun)

The age of shadows has begun
(Giant machines blot out the sun)
Frozen lands becoming known
(The age of shadows has begun)

The age of Shadows has begun
(I won't accept what we've become)
We stand to lose more than we've won
(The age of Shadows has begun)

We never heeded the warning
Buried deep within us all
