The voice over, and a fair bit of the lyrics, is from a book of poetry by an evolutionary biologist named Richard Dawkins, and he did the final voice over live for the Wembly show

The fact that this was your introduction to Nightwish, and that your reaction contained so much thought and openness is quite remarkable. Often times people jump into this song, or Poet and the Pendulum and are totally unable to grasp any meaning intended by Toumas. Of course he writes so that much of his feelings can apply to many situations, so that is not always a bad thing. But that said, I really enjoyed your reaction. Cheers!

I think you captured the spirit of both the song and the band very well here. As you said, even when you don't understand what's being sung, if you can "feel" it it's fine, and that's generally what you get with Nightwish, each and every time. By the way: hadn't you spoken a single word, the infectious smile you carried throughout would have given away your genuine appreciation for the whole experience anyway!

I saw that you tried to listen to the narrative at the end. If you want to hear it more clearly, watch and listen to it at the end of the concert at Wembley. There the author of the narrative, Richard Dawkins, comes on stage to recite the words himself. Richard Dawkins FRS FRSL is a British ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and author. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford, and was the University of Oxford's Professor for Public Understanding of Science from 1995 until 2008.

The song is about evolution. The voice over at the beginning and at the end is professor Richard Dawkins who wrote the book "The Greatest Show on Earth" which is evolution. He read qoutes from his own book and from "The Origin of Species" by Darwin.

Looks like you got most of it, but even with lyrics on screen this may be hard to understand without digging into what the words mean. At least for me. Going straight from Ghost Love Score to this one is usually not recommended. I recommend getting some more Nightwish under the belt before proceeding to Poet And The Pendulum, one that should not be attempted before doing some hefty bit of research into it. Read the letters, view the interviews, and understand the context and background of you'll just react to "some song" that may not make a whole lot of sense.

The part you missed at the end was Prof. Richard Dawkins (who was reading the other quotes in the song) reading from Charles Darwin's "On The Origin of Species": "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers having been originally breathed into a few forms, or into one; and that whilst this planet goes cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." This is the passage from which Prof. Dawkins took the title of his own book, "Endless Forms Most Beautiful". Tuomas mirrored that title for the album on which this piece appears. The entire album, with the exception of perhaps one instrumental piece, is recognition and homage to Prof. Dawkins' book. That exception is titled "The Eyes of Sharbat Gula", and is worth a listen on its own. Your first taste of Nightwish was their magnum opus. That's like a professional baseball player whose first big-league hit is a grand slam.

Welcome to the most intriguing rabbit hole in music Joseff. You started in the deep end though. Gabriel has given you a great blueprint for he Nightwish journey. As a fan of 25+ years I can tell you that: the degree of depth, feel, compositional breadth and creativity, execution cohesiveness, musicianship and artistic expression in Nightwish's art form (notice I did not use the word songs as it fails miserably to convey any meaning) is staggering. Every lyric, cord and key shift is meticulously planned and executed and supported by meaningful and worth-exploring lyrics. Nothing is done in vain. Everything has its place in the whole structure. Every single one of them is a world-class musician/vocalist but they all check their egos at the door and solely serve the music and its needs. We, the lucky ones who discovered them early on in the 90s, have been spoiled rotten to the point that it is almost impossible to listen to any other music without making the comparison and realizing that the pastures are always more lush and greener in Nightwish musical land.

Wow you didn't chosen the easiest way to fall in the NW rabbit hole wih this song, at all, but you managed it very well, glad you liked it. This is one of the 3 main NW masterpieces, the other 2 are "Ghost love score" and "The Poet and the Pendulum". GLS is the usual entry point for the NW universe, in the case you decide to continue in the discovery of the band, I strongly recommend this as your next song. TPETP indeed is a very dark song, who needed a pretty good knowledge of the band and their history to be fully understanded, so please keep it for the future after reacting to several songs, you will appreciate it much more. I see as usual Gabriel provided you a really good list of songs to react, following the list you can't go wrong, but NW is a band with 25 years of music, every song deserve to be listened and each one will give you different vibes, so feel free to explore, also the songs with the previous 2 singer, they are all of them amazing.

Joseff - 20 minutes - I can guarantee you when it is over you will want more. Also your pre-concieved ideas will not work, you will understand more after you have listened to this song. This isn't probably the best Nightwish song for a new listener. It is very involved and generally needs some knowledge of Nightwish. You really need a lyric sheet and listen to this song many times. Probably a little late to tell you, this is the history of the universe.

Normally people start out with Ghost Love Score, Wacken 2013. With Nightwish, if possible go for live performances and also if possible go for Wacken 2013. There are exceptions, but a good rule of thumb. Also Nightwish have a great version of The Phantom of the Opera. If you want to hear it the best version of the phantom of the opera ever go out listening to the live version of this, with their first lead singer Tarja.

The song title comes directly from Richard Dawkins book of the same name. I have taken the liberty of attempting to describe some of the lyrics as the terms used can be confusing unless you are familiar with some of the texts. Tuomas of course being an avid follower of science. Like the music this post is a little longer than normal and is in two parts! "Archaean horizon, The first sunrise" Earth's history is divided into four principal Eons: the Hadean, the Archean, Proterozoic, and the Phanerozoic. The Hadean is the Eon during which the Earth and Moon formed; in the Archaean, primordial life appeared. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Earth) "On a pristine gaea" Gaia is the primordial Greek goddess of the Earth. More recently, the Gaia hypothesis is a recognition of the living and nonliving Earth systems which form an interdependent whole. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia) "Opus perfectum, Somewhere there, us sleeping" Pristine perfection (of silence, of a blank page, of the very point from which the big bang itself sprung) implies a rich creative potential. Here Earth is painted in the same powerful way. Diversity awaits; unborn beings are sleeping the same sleep to which they will return at death. This interpretation is thematically linked with the album's opening track, "Shudder before the Beautiful," which includes the lyrics, "The music of this awe, Deep silence between the notes, Deafens me with endless love." Or as the furious hobbit screamed at the novice trumpeter, "An artist respects the silence, it serves as the foundation of creativity." [Part 2: Life] "The cosmic law of gravity Pulled the newborns around a fire, A careless cold infinity in every vast direction. Lonely farer in the Goldilocks zone" Gravity pulls the Earth and its inhabitants around the energizing Sun in an otherwise inhospitable universe. Earth is the only planet in our solar system's circumstellar habitable zone, orbiting at the "just right, not too hot, not too cold" distance from the Sun. "She has a tale to tell, From the stellar nursery into a carbon feast, Enter LUCA" In astronomy, stellar nurseries are the birthplaces of stars: they nurse stars (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_formation#Stellar_nurseries). Poetically, our solar system is another "stellar nursery," in which a star is the nurse, caring for and warming a planet of 'newborns,' early carbon-based life. "Feast" evokes the incorporation of plentiful chemical building blocks into rudimentary life forms. "LUCA" stands for "Last universal common ancestor," the one single organism from which all other presently existing life on Earth descended. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_universal_ancestor) "The tapestry of chemistry is a writing in the garden, Leading us to the mother of all" The periodic table of elements does look like a sort of patchwork tapestry, but this can go further. The historical function of tapestries was as "nomadic murals," pictographical histories which moving people could pack up and revisit wherever they went. The "writing in the garden," in nature, is not only the stone murals left by dead animals in the form of fossils, but is also this chemical writing that encodes the relatively nomadic DNA molecule with the instructions for life. The scientific investigation of this information leads us back to LUCA, and further. "We are one, We are a universe," This is the natural conclusion to draw from the fact that life shares common origin, that all life is built with the same blocks, and that all life on Earth is interdependent (gaia hypothesis). The multiplicity of beings on Earth are one, just as the cells in a body are one. "Forebears of what will be Scions of the Devonian sea." The Devonian geologic time period marked the first significant, rapid diversification of life (and the more well-known Cambrian explosion is another of these 'adaptive radiation' events). It was during the Devonian that the 'higher plants' appeared and blanketed the continents with forests. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devonian). The word "scion" refers to a shoot of a plant cut for grafting and is also used to denote a descendent of a notable family. Both meanings apply. "Aeons pass, Writing the tale of us all. A day-to-day new opening For the greatest show on Earth" Evolutionary adaptation is written in the DNA and as fossils in the rocks, and is ongoing. Species die, diversifiy and delineate. Every day is different, every day something changes. "Ion channels welcoming the outside world To the stuff of stars" Ion channels are found in the membranes of all cells, controlling the flow of energy through the cells. The stuff of stars is all the physical matter we're made of. So it's the ion channels, guiding enery, which allow living bodies to interact with the rest of the world by exchanging energy with it. "Stuff of stars" is surely a Sagan reference: "The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff." Enter life" The bed of a tree is the nutrient-rich soil from which it grows, a soil made of dead things. The "tree of a biological holy" is probably the tree of life (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree_of_life). This line refers to the "holy" legendary tree of everlasting life but also means the conceptual, branching family tree of all life, whose bed consists of all deceased beings (in a more literal sense), or all extinct ancestral species (in a more abstract sense). This is thematically linked with the song "Alpenglow." "We are here to care for the garden, The wonder of birth Of every form most beautiful" "We" could be human beings tasked with acting as nature's stewards, garden of eden style, but that's not chronological -- human beings haven't quite appeared in the song yet. "We" could instead be all of life itself, in a gaia-philosophy sense, which posits that life creates environments ever more hospitable to more life. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia_philosophy) Or maybe it's a combination of these two thoughts: life eventually creates an environment suitable for the development of consiously acting, thinking human stewards.

[Part 3: The Toolmaker] "After a billion years, The show is still here. Not a single one of your fathers died young." Every single one of a given person's ancestors, male and female, lived past puberty at least. But "fathers" evokes "forefathers," which has a nicer storytelling ring to it than "parents." "The handy travelers Out of Africa Little Lucy of the Afar" Handymen are good with tools; travelers posessing hands rather than forefeet walk upright. Hominids originated in Africa and spread to the rest of the world from there. Lucy is a particular specimen of the Australopithecus, one of many "missing links" between modern humans and nonhuman ancestors. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_(Australopithecus)) "Gave birth to fantasy, To idolatry, To self-destructive weaponry. Enter the God of gaps Deep within the past. Atavistic dread of the hunted!" The brain grows, consciousness and creativity along with it. Atavism is the tendency to revert to ancestral type, an evolutionary throwback. Fight-or-flight instincts that helped human ancestors survive have now been creatively projected onto the world to both explain it (origins, meaning, suffering) and gain security in it (bargaining through sacrifice). These are the roots of theism. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atavism) "Enter Ionia, the cradle of thought, The architecture of understanding. The human lust to feel so exceptional, To rule the Earth" Nomadic people develop agriculture and settle down into civilizations. The word "architecture" is at once both literal and figurative. The efficiency of civilization graces people with free time to do more than just feed themselves. They develop rich cultural traditions, arts and philosophies, much of which are deeply influenced by how different humans now are from all the rest of life. "Hunger for shiny rocks, For giant mushroom clouds, The will to do as you'd be done by." Shiny rocks are wealth: gold, precious stones, jewels, and later uranium which leads to the nuclear arms race. The golden rule -- "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" -- is a coin with a dark side: "an eye for an eye," revenge. This ensures the "MAD"ness of mutually assured destruction. "Enter history, the grand finale. Enter ratkind." "Ratkind" comes from Richard Dawkins' book "The Ancestor's Tale." Dawkins imagines a post-apocalyptic world in which rodents feast on the remnants of humanity (and humanity's garbage). The rat population explodes, and then as they exhaust these resources they turn on one another for food. As a consequence of natural selection, the rats diverge into new carnivorous and herbivorous species, and perhaps, eventually, a specices of rodent whose intelligence rivals that of humans. This is "ratkind." (iberianature.com/wildworld/tag/ratkind/) "Man, he took his time in the sun, Had a dream to understand A single grain of sand." From William Blake: "To see a World in a Grain of Sand, And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour." ...And the story of the planet in 24 minutes. Not bad. "He gave birth to poetry, But one day'll cease to be. Greet the last light of the library" A bittersweet redundancy: poetry with library, the last light with ceasing to be. Reminiscent of Elan: "Be the first to greet the morn [...] Travel with great élan, dance a jig at the funeral." "We were here!"

Hehe you really went into the deep end at your first Nightwish encounter 😁 Subscribed, not because of Nightwish (although they are my favourite band in the world) but you’re a good egg, thanks for this video!
