[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.

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

Tell me what you see
I cannot tell you now
I see the world through the eyes of time
Tell me what you feel
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.
