1. Echoes on the Wind

It's the calm before the storm
It's the quiet before the roar
It's the time when all will be decided.
(All will be decided)
But nobody hears
The Echoes on the Wind

It's the end of the chain
(Destruction of the feelings)
It's the end of our game
(We're seeing as before)
It's the end of man's evolution
(The end of the evolution)
But nobody hears
The echoes on the wind

2. Radioactive Grave

Do you hear the sirens?
Do you see them burst?
Do you feel the fire?
(Grunt)

I can hear them crying
I can see their fear
I can see them dying
(Grunt)

Do you hear them calling
Do you see them hurt?
Do you feel them falling?
(Grunt)

I can't think of waiting
I can see their hearts
I can see them fading
(Grunt)
Do you hear the sirens?
Do you see them burst?
Do you feel the fire?
(Grunt)

I can hear them crying
I can see their fear
I can see them dying
(Grunt)

3. 2085

Silence's so loud
Not a soul left alive
Darkness's a shroud
2085
All our dreams have disappeared
They burned down, tree of life
Confirming all that we feared
2085

Don't give up
Remember how we felt
Fire rushing through our veins

Now it's the time
To rise up from our hell
Now it's the time to free our brains

The meaning of life is to
Give life meaning
Don't you fast, move too slow.

Restore the balance
Between thinking and feeling
Open up and let it flow

No side has won
Struggled to survive
Our quest here is done
2085
All our hopes have disappeared
Our race will
Not describe
Time will not bring color here
2085

Don't give in
Remember all we learned
The spark of life if did ignite

We're again, The rest for which we earth
We're again, A wealthy fire

We must resolve this human equation
We're already dead if we don't try
To welcome challenge, genetic variation
Stop the machines, prepare to die

4. To the Planet of Red

[Instrumental]

5. Spirit of the Wind

He's the last man alive
(Searching for the answer)
Knowing he won't survive
(To the mystery of live)
He lives the past, and dreams of the future
(Dreaming of the future)
And soon he'll set free
(And the sleeper will awake)
The Spirit of The Wind

6. Complete the Circle

Make us whole
Migrator soul
Follow you home
Complete the Circle
We must survive
Restore our lives
Always be sure
Complete the Circle [x2]

Send back visions
Into the past
Of war and decay
Hear the final cries!

I see them dying
We have to teach them
Migrator soul

We're gain over to fly
We're already die
We found a way

I know we're knocking at the end
Listen to the One man

We gave them a language
What did they say
What did they learn

We have no chance
We are the future
We are the pain
Complete the Circle!

    General Comment"Returning to the Forevers, Tom's Forever that now all will be decided, Steve's Forever says that it's the end of man evolution. All Forevers see the suffering of mankind, the screams and wailing, the fear and failure, the death and hurt, the wrath, fires and sirens, all caused by nuclear weapons, by radiation, by gamma waves, by a "Scorching sea of fire". Jonas' Forever declares that all that they have feared is confirmed in the year 2085, their dreams and hopes disappeared (see The Dream Sequencer, track 3 for a complete story). But Bob's Forever yells to rise from hell, to free their brains, while Steve's Forever calls to restore the balance. Daniel's Forever claims that they have regained their will to fight and calls to remember all they have learned. Jørn's Forever recalls to resolve this Human Equation, to give it a try and now yelling: "Stop the machines, prepare to die". They see how the last man alive suffers on the Planet of Red (Mars, see The Dream Sequencer for a complete story), and, knowing he won't survive, they give him the Dream Sequencer. In the end, all Forevers make a summary of the things they have done, waiting to complete the circle, praying the Migrator Soul to restore their lives."

    General CommentThought I'd repost the lyrics with the lyrics to the 'grunts' as well as letting everyone know which singer is responsible for which lines. Enjoy:

    [1. Echoes On The Wind]

    [Tom Englund:]
    It's the calm before the storm
    It's the quiet before the war
    It's the time when all will be decided.
    [Steve Lee:] All will be decided
    [Tom Englund:] If nobody hears the echoes on the wind

    [Tom Englund:] It's the end of the chain
    [Steve Lee:] Destruction of the fittest
    [Tom Englund:] It's the end of our reign
    [Steve Lee:] We've seen it all before
    [Tom Englund:] It's the end of man's evolution
    [Steve Lee:] The end of evolution
    [Tom Englund:] For nobody heeds the echoes on the wind

    [2. Radioactive Grave]

    [*]
    [Hansi Kursch:] Do you hear the sirens?
    [Daniel Gildenlow:] Do you see them burst?
    [Steve Lee:] Do you feel the fire?
    [Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] All the world's a radioactive grave!
    [Tom Englund:] I can hear them crying
    [Bob Catley:] I can see the fear
    [Jorn Lande:] I can see them dying
    [Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] Washed away by deadly gamma waves!

    [Hansi Kursch:] Do you hear them calling?
    [Daniel Gildenlow:] Do you see them hurt?
    [Steve Lee:] Do you feel them falling?
    [Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] All the world's a blazing funeral pyre!

    [Tom Englund:] I can hear the wailing!
    [Bob Catley:] I can see the wrath!
    [Jorn Lande:] I can see them failing
    [Jonas Renske and Floor Jansen:] Washed away by a scorching sea of fire!

    [repeat *]

    [3. 2085]

    [Jonas Renske:] Silence's so loud, not a soul... left alive
    Darkness's a shroud
    2085
    All our dreams have disappeared
    They burned down... tree of life
    Confirming all that we feared
    2085

    [Bob Catley:]
    Don't give up, remember how we felt
    Fire rushing through our veins
    Now it's the time to rise up from our hell
    Now it's the time to free our brains

    [Steve Lee:]
    The meaning of life is to give life meaning
    Go too fast, move too slow.
    Restore the balance between thinking and feeling
    Open up and let it flow

    [Jonas Renske:]
    No side has won, struggle to... survive
    Our quest here is done
    2085
    All our hopes have disappeared
    Our race will... not thrive
    Time will not recall the year
    2085

    [Daniel Gildenlow:]
    Don't give in, remember all we learned
    The spark of life if did ignite
    We regained the rage for which we yearned
    We regained our will to fight

    [Jorn Lande:]
    We must resolve this human equation
    We're already dead if we don't try
    To welcome challenge, genetic variation
    Stop the machines, prepare to die!

    [4. To The Planet Of Red]

    [Instrumental]

    [5. Spirit Of The Wind]

    [Tom Englund:] He's the last man alive
    [Steve Lee:] Searching for the answer
    [Tom Englund:] Knowing he won't survive
    [Steve Lee:] To the mystery of live
    [Tom Englund:] Relives the past, and dreams of the future
    [Steve Lee:] Dreaming of the future
    [Tom Englund:] And soon he'll set free
    [Steve Lee:] And the sleeper will awake
    [Tom Englund:] The spirit of the wind

    [6. Complete The Circle]

    Make us whole, migrator soul
    Follow you home, complete the Circle
    We must survive, restore our lives
    The way I'll show, complete the circle [x2]

    [Hansi Kursch:]
    Send back visions
    Into the past
    Of war and decay

    [Floor Jansen:]
    Hear the final cries!
    I can see the fear
    In a world without walls

    [Anneke van Giersbergen:] Through their eyes

    [Tom Englund:]
    I see them dying
    We have to teach them
    Migrator soul

    [Daniel Gildenlow:]
    We will gain our will to fight
    We're at the dawn
    We found a way

    [Steve Lee:]
    I know we'll make it in the end
    Listen to the one man

    [Bob Catley:]
    We gave them language
    What did they say?
    What did they learn?

    [Jorn Lande:]
    We have no choice
    We are the future
    We are the pain
    Complete the Circle!

    [Steve Lee:] AH!!!!
