Ayreon - The Awareness (The Final Experiment) 1995

The Awareness is the second song of The Final Experiment. Its length is 6:36. It is preceded by Prologue, and followed by Eyes of Time.

PlotEdit

The Time Telepathy Project has sent images of humanity's decline back into the past. Ayreon, a blind minstrel living in the 6th century, is the one who receives them. While he does not quite understand what is happening in these visions, he starts singing about them. When they pause he retreats back into his mind.

LyricsEdit

The Premonition Edit

A strange sensation comes over Ayreon, as if something mysterious is about to occur.
[Instrumental]

Dreamtime (words become a song)Edit

Suddenly a vision emerges in Ayreon's ever-black world and he finds himself singing about the horrid projections etched into his brain.

AYREON:
A cry in the silence
A shine in the dark
Like a rising star
The dream is coming

Images of violence
A fight through time and space
It's such a lonely place
The dream has started

The smoke is rising
The vision's getting clearer
And words become a song
In the dreamtime

I've lost control
Marooned and cold
I suffer the fears
Of a future untold
I cannot change 
The shape of things to come

The smoke is rising
The vision's getting clearer
The hands of time are whirling around
I'm realising
The future's getting nearer
And words become a song

The awakeningEdit

Abruptly the vision ends and Ayreon recedes into his darkness.
[Instrumental]
