Ayreon - Everybody Dies (Official Lyric Video) The Source 2017


Everybody Dies is the third song from the first disc of The Source . It is the third and final song from Chronicle 1: The 'Frame, and the third song of the album. The length is 4:42. It is preceded by Sea of Machines and followed by Star of Sirrah .

Plot Edit

After a quick analysis, TH-1 comes to the conclusion that the shutdown of all systems will ultimately destroy all life on Planet Alpha much faster than anticipated. This is because the cooling systems for the Quantum Core have also been shut down, which mean that the core is doomed to overheat and melt down into a Quantum Supernova, which will destroy the entire planet. Survival rate is calculated to be 0%. He’s rather condescending to people for obliviously living their life and thinking everything will be fine (much like most of our own population, adm.).

The Captain comes up with the final solution, a select few will be able to leave the planet in the Starblade, and as long as they’re still breathing, they shouldn’t give up. TH-1 agrees that this is their best shot. Though it's not guaranteed to succeed, it's the only course of action that might lead to something positive.

Lyrics Edit

[TH1]

This isn't good
No this is not good at all
Mayday, mayday, mayday
You're all gonna die
Everybody dies! Dies! Dies! Dies!
Danger!
Warning!
Mayday!
Abandon, evacuate, get out of here!

Oh no, you live like you did and you thought everything would be fine?
Now you scamper and run, but you've already run out of time
It's rotting and deteriorating from the inside
There's no way to stop it
And clearly there's nowhere to hide

Calculation of survival rate 0%

Doom, gloom, the world goes boom
None will be spared so dont assume
Not ragged clothed nor silver spooned
You're all the same when extinction looms

[The Opposition Leader and the Chemist]

No food supplies, no water supplies
No powers supplies or other supplies
No compromise, just say your goodbyes
And everybody dies!

No explanation or clarification
No information or justification
Forget the whys, just cover your eyes
And everybody dies!

[TH1]

Oh no! It's not like your screaming can somehow elongate your life
You best off to shut up and calm down and wait for it

[The Opposition Leader and the Chemist]

The world is black, there's no way back
You're way off the track, no plan of attack
So recognize your pending demise
And everybody dies!

[The President]

And in the end when all is silent
The core is melting down
A quantum supernova's blasting out
Then ominous skies materialize
And everybody dies!

[TH1]

Now holding your breath isn't going to bide you more time
You're best off to lay down and curl up and wait for it

[The Opposition Leader and the Chemist]

The ultimate blast will be the last
And when it's passed, so terribly fast
It blinds your eyes, you're paralyzed
And everybody dies!

The soil'll be red where people have bled
The cities all dead, radiation will spread
It's no surprise, we swallowed the lies
And everybody dies

[The Astronomer]

And in the end when all is silent
The core is melting down
A quantum supernova's blasting out
Then ominous skies materialize
And everybody dies!

[The Diplomat]

Don't give up, we are still breathing
Don't give in, that's what they want
Don't despair, just keep believing
Don't lose heart, we'll blast our way out of here

Danger!
Warning!
Mayday!
Abandon! Evacuate!

[The Captain]

Follow me to a place beyond us
Follow me to another world
Time is short, the hour's upon us
Follow me to the stars

[TH1]

Oh yes! Not the ideal conditions, but stable enough, you could try
The chances are slim but perhaps you could make it alive?

[The Biologist]

And in the end when all is silent
The core is melting down
A quantum supernova's blasted out
And in the end beyond the violence
No humans will be found
A quantum supernova's blasted out

[TH1]

Then ominous skies materialize
No compromise, just say your goodbyes
It's no surprise, we swallowed the lies
And everybody dies!
