Ayreon is a progressive metal project started by Dutch composer and musician Arjen Anthony Lucassen in 1995. Based in Hilversum, Netherlands, Ayreon's musical style derives mostly from heavy metal and progressive rock, but combines them with genres like folk, classical and electronica. The majority of Ayreon's albums are dubbed a "rock opera" with an ongoing science fiction storyline featuring a host of characters, usually with each one being represented by a unique vocalist.

- Lyrics[Anneke van Giersbergen]:
No need to feel the pain
No need to feel betrayed
No need to feel inane
I am pain
I am real, I'm not a dream
I'm the chain around your neck as you scream
- Lyrics[Me] I can't move, I can't feel my body
I don't remember anything
What place is this...how did I get here?
I don't understand, what's happening... Am I alone?
[Fear] You've been deserted, everyone has left you
- LyricsOnce a world, endless and free
Now a world of bounded frontiers
The elders have spoken (our home)
Once a world, eternal and blue
- Lyrics[Father] Look at you, lying there, defenceless and alone
See I am no fool, I always knew you wouldn't make it on your own
Cos you're just like your mother, well, where is she now?
You'll end up like her soon, 6 feet under ground, loser!
I came here to watch you bleed, oh how I love to gloat
