Ayreon - The Day That the World Breaks Down

Song Rating: 9.67/10

Song lyrics:

The Historian:
A silence so deafening
As the stillness surrounds us
A rush of fear is surging through our veins

A shadows so menacing
Darkens our horizon
What have we done
Is this the end
When d**h descends

The Opposition Leader:
Dont say I didnt warn you
Youll recall my words
The day that the world breaks down

Dont claim you didnt see it
Are you prepared to die
The day that the world breaks down

The Chemist:
I cant believe were in danger
I cant believe that weve let it come this far

The Counselor:
We must prepare for the changes
We must prepare for
The day that the world breaks down

The Opposition Leader:
Dont expect we will survive this
There will be no way back
The day that the world breaks down

Dont a**ume its all a nightmare
Wont stand a chance
The day that the world breaks down

The Chemist:
I cant believe this is happening
I cant believe we are headed
For a fall

The Counselor:
We must prepare for the blackening
We must prepare for
The day that the world breaks down

The Prophet:
I can feel it in my heart
I can see it in the stars
Behold: Its all been foretold
The future unfolds
The day that the world breaks down

The Captain:
I always knew this would happen
Not many believed in my cause
Im sure they will all turn to me now
Im sure Im the only one
Who can save us

TH-1:
(StarBlade)

The Captain:
From this fate

The Captain:
I always knew they would need me
Not many showed faith in my plans
Im sure they will listen to me now
Im sure that Im the only one
Who can save us

TH-1:
(StarBlade)

The Captain:
From this fate

The Astronomer:


Yes I believe you are the answer
Yes I agree you are the key
Your future lies in the heavens
Our future lies beyond (the stars)

TH-1:
(The StarBlade)

The Astronomer:
We will save them

The President:
I mustve been blind
I mean it shouldve been obvious
Straight out of my mind
To rely on a cold machine

The signs were strong
I know I was wrong
I know they will hate me now
But I will come clean
And destroy this cold machine

The Diplomat:
This is not over
Not as long as were alive
If we join our forces
We will make it

This is not over
As a race we must survive
And in the end we will
Cross this bridge... together

The President:
Were losing this fight
And yes - we got ourselves to blame
I guess it seems right
In the mind of the cold machine

Ill fix every flaw
Ill break every law
Ill tear up the rulebook
If thats what it takes
You will see
I will crush this cold machine

The Diplomat:
This is not over
I am sure we will find a way
Out of this desperate situation

This is not over
Even if it all seems hopeless
For in the end well cross this bridge
Together

The Biologist:
I can feel it in the air
The signs are everywhere
Communications ground to a halt
Traffic has stopped
The grid starts to fail
Planes crashing down
Were getting closer to
The day the world breaks down
