"Eye In The Sky" as written by Eric Woolfson, Alan Parsons, Wanderley Bertazzo Pinto Leley Bertazzo and Luiz Antonio Batista Montagna Luiz Batista....
Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of Chances before
But I'm not gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'

Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your Eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry cause I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

    General CommentIt's about how two people were in a relationship, and one of them lied. He was saying sorry's not always enough, and that the lier can't try to turn it around and blame him either. He gave many "second chances", but just couldn't take it anymore. He knows the person will try to lie their way back.
    (Don't think sorry's easily said
    Don't try turning tables instead
    You've taken lots of Chances before
    But I'm not gonna give anymore
    Don't ask me
    That's how it goes
    Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin' )

    Also, about how when the person being lied to cut off the relationship the lier got angry and would say things they didn't entirely mean.
    (Don't say words you're gonna regret
    Don't let the fire rush to your head)

    He's saying some of the lies were worth believing because being with the person was that important.
    (The sun in your Eyes
    Made some of the lies worth believing)

    The chorus is about how he's capable of seeing through the person's lies and know what they're going to try to pull next.


    In the last verse he's saying not to act like all of the deceptions were true. Not to cry or whine for pity to get him to take them back after it all. To just find another fool to believe them like he had, and that he was giving up on anything he had believed because all the signs told him the statements or situations were false.
    (Don't leave false illusions behind
    Don't Cry cause I ain't changing my mind
    So find another fool like before
    Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
    Some of the lies while all of the Signs are deceiving )

    General CommentThis whole album, not just this paticular song, was heavily influenced by the book 1984 by George Orwell. But that's just what Parsons himself said. What the hell does he know? Don't post comments if you don't know what you're talking about.

    General CommentAs a well repected musician, you expect the lyrics could be inspired by one thing (a literal or figure eye in the sky such as either those in casions or those written by Orwell) and about another thing (relationships). I've heard that Parsons indicated on an XM Radio show (Artist Confidential) that these lyrics were indeed inspired after a visit to a casino in Vegas. The back album cover art apparently contains pictures of these security cameras.

    General CommentThe entire concept of the album is that of a Big Brother type influence, and this is no exception.

    General Commenti think this song is about spy satellites, the ones used by the former USSR or the US, especially those that are used for tracking specific individuals... APP expected a police state during their time... about the song - well it's just too damn good

    General CommentThe star system Sirius is traditionally through EVERY ancient religion in the world, the birthplace of the gods. In ancient Central American times, the gods where to have taught the people not to be savage or cannabalistic anymore and that they're worshipping of the sun was for the wrong reasons. They taught the people through hymns and songs how to live but never forced the people to change, only showing them this new way of life as an option. This is just one example. If your really interested read about the Dogon religion of Mali in the Sirius Mystery by Robert Temple. These spear carrying tribesmen knew more about astronomy than we just are learning in the past 30 or so years. Also check out Robert Duvaul , Graham Hancock and many others....and decide for yourself what this song could mean. If our thoughts produce a sound, which they do through ultra low frequencies, could anyone pick up the frequencies and how far would the sound waves travel. Gives a whole new meaning to prayer or meditation. The Eye is well known to be the symbol for Atum-RA, Isis the wife of Osiris, is represented by the star system Sirius. Please in the search for the truth, it led you here didn't it. All of the history of man from the beginning has brought you here to this site and reading this post.
