"We have reached our first destination: the black hole in the Virgo cluster of galaxies.
But what will we find inside? Its power is immeasurable. Our hopes and fears intermingle
as we stand at the event horizon. Will its
doorway transport us to our faraway planet Earth, or will its fury mercilessly tear us

[Bruce Dickinson, Lana Lane]


A dark sphere surrounds us
In the centre of the galaxy
A hidden force has found us
At the boundary of eternity

Nothing escapes, not even light
Beyond the mystical horizon
We surrender to its might
Gazing into the eye of the universe

A deep roar is sounding
As if the universe were crying
My heart is pounding
My every nerve is dying


I hear screams of fallen souls, sad cries of agony
Within the void of this evil hole, deep inside the black

Could it be my imagination, the mirror of my fantasy?
A fear-induced hallucination
Or is there no way back from the halo of darkness?

Spirits - apparitions - misery - suffering
Horrid dreams and dire visions rising up from the black

Look away in disbelief, this cannot be happening
The end has come, I bow in grief
There is no way back from the halo of darkness


Now silence devours us
The calm before the storm
Gravity overpowers us
And leads us through the final door

Feed me light, I'm the halo of darkness
Feel my might, I'm the eye of the universe

    General CommentGood song but it rests on the same exact premise Cygnus X-1 by Rush does. Kind of a rip off if you ask me.

    General CommentYou should hear the live version with Stream of Passion.... And I think Arjen is paying tribute to Rush on this one

    Song MeaningThe whole concept of the Universal Migrator albums were about the last humans having moved to Mars to survive after the extinction of humans on Earth. In this album the last human travels through time to discover how the universe and "humans" came to be.

    This song focuses on the traveling aspect of this story, and the travel is done via black holes.
