Ayreon - 2084 (Universal Migrator Part 1&2) 2000

For the year 2084, see the Timeline.

2084 is the third song of Universal Migrator Part 1: The Dream Sequencer. Its length is 7:42. It is preceded by My House on Mars and followed by One Small Step.


PlotEdit

Using the Dream Machine, the Colonist experiences the perspective of one of his ancestors who was forced to flee the Earth due to World War 3 destroying all life on the planet. The events of The Final Experiment are also referenced, as evidently Ayreon's warnings about the fate of humanity went unheeded.

LyricsEdit

Silence fills the air;
Echoes fade away
Sadness and despair
On that cruel and fateful day

My body lies motionless
Upon the kitchen floor
The Earth has died, the world's at rest:
2084

Many centuries ago
In a dark, enchanted land
Our fate had been foretold
By a poor, misguided man

We carried on down the road we chose-
The path of Nevermore
The journey ends, the book is closed
2084

And now I have to leave, my work on Earth is done
I'm heading for the planet known as Mars
To the last of its race, the final newborn son
Before I start my voyage to the stars

And now I have to leave, my work on Earth is done
I'm heading for the planet known as Mars
To the last of its race, the final newborn son
Before I start my voyage to the stars

My body lies motionless
Upon the kitchen floor
The Earth has died, the world's at rest
2084...
