Eyes Of Time

This song is by Ayreon and appears on the album The Final Experiment (1995) and on the compilation album Ayreonauts Only (2000).

Ayreon (lenny wolf):
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,
A fantasy,
Or a view of things to come.

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'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?

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!

Villagers:
Tell me what you see!

Ayreon:
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... Free my mind... free my mind...
Free my mind... Free my mind...
