Ayreon - Eyes Of Time


[A. Eyes of time]



IT SLOWLY DAWNS ON AYREON THAT THESE VISIONS HE IS EXPERIENCING

ARE VISIONS OF THE FUTURE BUT HE DOES NOT FULLY COMPREHEND

THEIR IMPORTANCE YET.



[AYREON:]

I cannot see with these eyes

my world is dark

like a cold eternal night



I could not tell you no lies

my words are lost

in a shroud of mysery



[VILLAGERS:]

tell me what you see

[AYREON:]

I cannot tell you now

I see the world through the eyes of time

[VILLAGERS:]

tell me what you feel

[AYREON:]

I wouldn’t know how

I cannot free my mind

from the eyes of time



I do not know where I am

I’m lost in time

drifting in eternity



I cannot tell if it’s real

or fantasy

or a view of things to come



I’m still trying to understand

why do I see the things I see

could it be a future world

that’s warning us through me

I’m still trying to understand

why do I know the things I know

doe it mean I’m a god

will nobody tell me so?



[B. Brainwaves]



IT ALL GETS TOO CONFUSING FOR AYREON AND THE THIN LINE BETWEEN

ILLUSION AND REALITY FADES.
