​Beyond the Last Horizon

This song is by Ayreon and appears on the album Actual Fantasy (1996) and on the compilation album Ayreonauts Only (2000).

Robert soeterboek:
Ready for the enemy
Hungry for the battle
Fighting hard for victory
In the army of the king

Armed with shield and sword
We mounted our horses
Leaving on a sacred quest
On our way to fight the holy war

They attacked from different sides
Hard pressed with numbers
We could not even run nor hide
We had to stand and fight
Then I felt a blade of steel
Penetrate my armour
I did not dream the pain was real
As I went down I knew my time had come...

Edward reekers:
And then he rode into the night
Towards that eerie distant light that seemed to charm him

EDWARD REEKERS: Until he came to a road that disappeared
OKKIE HUYSDENS: Beyond the last horizon

Edward reekers:
He knew there'd be no way back
Once he had vanished in the blackness of infinity

EDWARD REEKERS: And so he gathered all his strength not to descend
OKKIE HUYSDENS: Into the valley of death...
ROBERT SOETERBOEK: Into the valley of death...

Robert soeterboek:
I opened up my weary eyes
The haze slowly lifted
The mighty roar of battlecries
Stopped ringing in my ears

I gazed upon a friendly face
He carried me to safety
I told him of this frightening place
And of my journey back from the other side

Edward reekers:
And then he rode into the night
Towards that eerie distant light that seemed to charm him

EDWARD REEKERS: Until he came to a road that disappeared
OKKIE HUYSDENS: Beyond the last horizon

Edward reekers:
He knew there'd be no way back
Once he had vanished in the blackness of infinity

EDWARD REEKERS: And so he gathered all his strength not to descend
OKKIE HUYSDENS: Into the valley of death...
ROBERT SOETERBOEK: Into the valley of death...

------------

Edward reekers:
And then he rode into the night
Towards that eerie distant light that seemed to charm him

Robert soeterboek:
A force so seductive
And yet so destructive and cruel

EDWARD REEKERS: Until he came to a road that disappeared
OKKIE HUYSDENS: Beyond the last horizon

Robert soeterboek:
I followed that road to the edge of eternity

Edward reekers:
He knew there'd be no way back
Once he had vanished in the blackness of infinity

Robert soeterboek:
I fought for my life
For I had to survive the ordeal

EDWARD REEKERS: And so he gathered all his strength not to descend
OKKIE HUYSDENS: Into the valley of death...
ROBERT SOETERBOEK: Into the valley of death...
