    off on on on off off on off
    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 yes yes yes no no yes yes
    no yes yes no yes yes yes yes
    no yes yes yes no no yes yes

    This portion always perplexed me. You can distinctly hear the female vocalists layering the binary and ons and offs and yes and no's but I always assumed she was saying the same thing in different was. However, if you convert the no and off to 0 and yes and on to 1 you'll get more binary. When you run that through a converter you get the full message Ayreon is sending:

    H
    E
    L
    P

    F
    O
    R
    E
    V
    E
    R

    S
    O
    S

    Quite possibly my favorite song ever and with this new depth gives me chills up my spine. Ayreon RULES!

    General CommentHoly crap I just bought this CD on a whim because I heard the Ayreon song with Bruce Dickinson and decided to check it out, and this is effing awesome!

    "The story begins with the Forever lamenting for their Planet Y. One of the Forevers (Tom Englund) tells that "We never saw this coming", while others (Steve Lee and Daniel Gildenlöw) say that they depended on machines to evolve, machines that now "Blot out the sun". Another two Forevers (Hansi Kürsch and Floor Jansen) point out that due to the machines, they don't have feelings. Another two Forevers have no hope (Jonas Renkse and Anneke Van Giersbergen) saying that they are prisoners, that they wait for no one. Soon after, a new Forever (Jørn Lande) joins the Steve's and Daniel's Forevers."

    General CommentFor anyone else who was interested, thanks to my computer nerdiness, the section:

    01101000
    01100101
    01101100
    01110000

    evaluates to the 4 letters "H-E-L-P."

    I thought this was very interesting.
