LyricsEdit

Eyes of TimeEdit

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 mystery

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
Does it mean I'm a god
Will nobody tell me so?

BrainwavesEdit

It all gets too confusing for Ayreon and the thin line between illusion and reality fades.
