"Watcher In The Sky" as written by and Kai/sielck Hansen....
I'm watching the mountains I'm watching the sea
Observing the creatures I am lost, set me free
Across the heavens I made my way
I've seen empires rise and blown away

I have arrived at my destiny but after all there's just emptiness in me
Dot in the darkness, I am going mad
Where are the others, there's silence in my head

Cause I'm watcher in the sky
I've seen universes die
Out in the cold my systems overload
I am lost in time
Watcher in the sky

I'm trapped in this nightmare
Endless tortures and pain, millenniums have gone by
Uh, it drives me insane

Who am I now?
I'm not man, I'm not machine
I gave my life away for the Iron Savior dream

Cause I'm watcher in the sky

Hooked to the circuits of a lifeless, cold machine
Lost in a world of artificial means
Ripped out of my body
I'll stand the rest of time
Am I perpetual? Am I divine?

I'm a watcher in the sky
My soul has drowned in the tears I cannot cry
I'm the watcher the chosen one but I am lost in time
I'm a watcher in the sky I've seen the years go by
I am the chosen one
Out in the cold my systems overload and I am lost in time
Watcher in the sky
Watching the mountains, watching the sea, watching the creatures
You'll never be free
Watcher in the sky

    General CommentA slightly different version was also featured in the Iron Savior album - a side project founded by Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray), Thomen Stauch (Blind Guardian) & Piet Sielck.

    I love that part. One of their best songs...

    General CommentI don't understand this song. Why is the singer trapped? He has free will. He has choice. Every action has a reaction. Very confused. Overall good lyrics, though.
