Ayreon

The Awareness

Play

[a. the premonition]

a strange sensation comes over ayreon,
as if something mysterious is about to occur.

[b. dreamtime (words become a song)]

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 flight through time and pace
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
and words become a song
in the dreamtime

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

[c. the awakening]

abruptly the vision ends and ayreon recedes into his darkness
