Ayreon - The Truth Is In Here (01011001) Lyric Video

This song describes the life of Mr. L, who is visited by Forever in his dreams with visions from various past and future happenings. Due to this, he is internalized in what appears to be a psychiatric department, where they mostly dismiss his visions as the ravings of a lunatic, try to keep him quiet and calm, and treat him with medication.

The first part refers to the events of The Final Experiment, of blind minstrel Ayreon and his warnings that no one heeded.

The second part refers to the Amazing Flight from Into the Electric Castle.

The third part describes Planet Y, once a free planet, but now overshadowed by machines.

Finally, Mr. L's dreams repeat, and he is again troubled by Ayreon's story.

Characters/singers Edit

Arjen Lucassen is Mr. L, the man haunted by Forever dreams

Liselotte Hegt: The nurse treating Mr. L. She is rather annoyed with his behavior, and urges him to see the madness in his ramblings, and that there is nothing to be afraid of.

Lyrics Edit

(Arjen Lucassen:)
Last night I had that dream again
My world was black as night
Plagued by visions of a future world

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Mr. L, did you take your meds?

(Arjen Lucassen:)
I sang about these dreams
Warning man of his demise
Wasted words that no one heard

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Won't you please relax? I'll make your bed

(Arjen Lucassen:)
Today I had that dream again
I roamed among the stars
On the wings of an amazing flight

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Mr. L, do we feel ok?

(Arjen Lucassen:)
To a place beyond our time
Where the sunlight doesn't warm
And colour bleeds into the night

(Liselotte Hegt:)
We may have to increase your dose today

(Arjen Lucassen:)
I know the truth is out there
If you want to see
I know the truth is in here

(Liselotte Hegt:) Why should we believe you?
(Arjen Lucassen:) If you want to feel

(Arjen Lucassen:)
Now I have that dream again
I live beneath the waves
In a realm of grace and majesty

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Mr. L, can I ease your mind?

(Arjen Lucassen:)
In the distant shadows loom
Cold machines rise from the deep
In a world once proud and free

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Won't you free your thoughts, let it all unwind

(Arjen Lucassen:)
I hate to have that dream again
They live inside my head
Feeling everything I feel inside

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Mr. L, can you please be still?

(Arjen Lucassen:)
They speak to me in dreams
They can see all I can see
They have always been my guide

(Liselotte Hegt:)
You gotta hush now please, have another pill!

(Arjen Lucassen:) I know the truth is out there
(Liselotte Hegt:) Why should we believe you?

(Arjen Lucassen:)
If you want to see
I know the truth is in here

(Liselotte Hegt:) Why should we deceive you?
(Arjen Lucassen:) If you want to feel

(Liselotte Hegt:)
We are alone
There's no one there
You don't have to be afraid

(Arjen Lucassen:) Can't you see through this masquerade?
(Liselotte Hegt:) We are alone
(Arjen Lucassen:) We are all clones
(Liselotte Hegt:) There's no one there
(Arjen Lucassen:) I am so scared
(Liselotte Hegt:) You don't have to be afraid

(Arjen Lucassen:)
Last night I had that dream again
My world was black as night
Plagued by visions of a future world

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Mr. L, did you take your meds?

(Arjen Lucassen:)
They speak to me in dreams
They can see all I can see
They have always been my guide

(Liselotte Hegt:)
Won't you please relax? I'll make your bed

(Arjen Lucassen:) I know the truth is out there
(Liselotte Hegt:) Why should we believe you?
(Arjen Lucassen:) If you want to see
(Liselotte Hegt:) Why should we deceive you?
(Arjen Lucassen:) I know the truth is in here
(Liselotte Hegt:) Why should we believe you?
(Arjen Lucassen:) If you want to feel
