Across The Rainbow Bridge

This song is by Ayreon and appears on the album Into The Electric Castle (1998).

Forever of the Stars:
And now, this Rainbow Bridge. An iridescent span of tears.
So fragile, and yet, so strong. Will it support your mortal shells?
Or will you fall into the fiery... brine... below?

KNIGHT:
I hark back to olden days
To her and her magic ways
Two souls in harmony
In an endless sea
The cruel wings of destiny
Carried you away from me
And left a heart unstilled
That never will be filled

ROMAN:
Beyond these Stygian skies
Our fortress lies!

ALL: Across the rainbow bridge!

ROMAN:
We'll span the sea of tears
And conquer all our fears... inside

KNIGHT:
I'd sacrifice my very life
To have you at my side
Like a dream, I see your face
Through the misty haze
We were one amid the stars
And time never healed my scars
Deep inside, the sadness burns
I must return!

ALL:
Beyond these Stygian skies
Our fortress lies!
Across the rainbow bridge!
We'll span the sea of tears
And conquer all our fears!
Forsake this mourning field
And drop your shield!
Across the rainbow bridge!
Run to the other side
Where all our dreams abide!

HIPPIE:
Scarlet, Crimson, Rosy red
I must be dead
Or stoned out of my head

INDIAN: Hoooooooooh!

HIPPIE:
Orange, Yellow, Tangerine
The acid queen
In a psychedelic scene

INDIAN: Hoooooooooh!

HIPPIE:
Ochre, Chestnut, Chocolate brown
I'm upside down
On a cosmic eiderdown

INDIAN: Hoooooooooh!

HIPPIE:
Ivory, Milky, Chalky white
The stars ignite
I vanish in the light... that burns so bright!

Forever of the Stars:
Step forward, step forward! Beyond lies your goal: The Electric Castle!
The past is gone! Do you wish to lapse in limbo forever? No no no!
Be resolute! There are trials ahead. And rewards for those who strive.
Hah! The surreal search endures....

ROMAN & KNIGHT:
Run, run! The past is gone, it cannot be undone!
Run run! The future is here, our fate is drawing near!
Run run! Run run! Run run!
The past is gone, it cannot be undone!
Run run! Run run! Run run!
The future is here, our fate is drawing near!
Run run! Run run!

ALL:
Beyond these Stygian skies
Our fortress lies!
Across the rainbow bridge!
We'll span the sea of tears
And conquer all our fears!
Forsake this mourning field
And drop your shield!
Across the rainbow bridge!
Run to the other side
Where all our dreams
(abide)
EGYPTIAN: Aaaaaayyyyyyeh!
