Ayreon - Amazing Flight (Into The Electric Castle) Lyric Video

Amazing Flight is the third song on the first CD of Into the Electric Castle, and the third song of the entire album. Its length is 10:15. It is preceded by Isis and Osiris, and followed by Time Beyond Time.


The Barbarian wonders where they are, and emphasises he is no coward - he is very willing to fight. The Hippie thinks the Barbarian needs to calm down, and is in general very excited to be here (he loves being in space).



There is danger ahead. But do not be afraid. For I am with you - like breath itself. Darkness will lead to light - colour will bleed into the night. Beautiful colours, the like of which you have never seen. Let the dream of confusion lead you into the virgin light! Be gone! Be all-seeing, be brave... Be gone!

Amazing flight in spaceEdit

I'm looking 'round bewildered
Is this some dark and evil jest?
What brought me to this cursed keep
Perchance some crazy quest

Gods forbid I am no coward!
Pitted against monster, man or ghost,
I'd wield my blade with crimson gusto
For I'm the proud barbarian host!

Hey dude, you're so uncool
But hey, that's all right
Like there's no need to get uptight
My eyes reflect the stars
And a smile lights up my face
We're on an amazing flight in space

I shook city walls and towers
Wreaking havoc in the streets
Burned palaces of cowrd'ly kings
Not a one stood up to me

Bear bloody banners in blazing skies
Brandish battle-axe and broadsword!
Let drums of glory sound like thunder!
Hail!! Barbaric warlord!!
