Eye In The Sky Lyrics

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turnin' tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I ain't 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...

    All-seeing eye of Horus. Not sure where people get the interpretation that is about a relationship. Read the lyrics carefully, the message is clear, not hidden. Look at the cover of the album.

    This really gives me a vibe of paranoid schizophrenic, or zelotypia (morbid jealousy). The person tells his partner that he won't believe her lies anymore, and he makes her believe that he really has the power to read her mind, out of fear of being cheated on or lied to, which is typical in these patients. He says don't say words you're gonna regret, it could mean he actually physically abuses her.

    This is about a guy who has tried so hard and for so long to maintain his relationship with his girlfriend that he has finally come to his wits end over her.
    She deceives him, she belittles him, she looks on him with squinty eyes like he is below her in some way, the sun in her eyes. All the time, she has had near complete power over him because of his love for her. He has finally been able to achieve the resolve that is needed for him to break away from her. He feels exaltation from this. Exaltation mixed with sadness, not joy, is this an oxymoron? Regardless, now he is able to see her for what she really is, he now knows who and what she really is. Because of this, he feels like he has the god like power of being the eye in the sky and with this song, he is telling her, with a bit of sadness, that it is over between them.

    It's like a form of greater power that knows the truth of your actions and intentions. You can lie and try to deceive others, but this force watching you knows the truth. You've said you would change and attempt to be convincing, however, the force watching over you isn't buying it anymore.

    I respect the interpretation of many. However, here is some real information about the "All-Seeing Eye" also know as the Eye of Horus. Many people have heard about the allegations of satanic rituals and followers around the music industry. Well, many proven videos of the same singers of almost all genre accepting that have sold their soul to the devil for fortune and fame have circulated the internet. But for some reason, the viewers and followers of musicians seem to don't care about this. Many songs with double meanings and also played in reverse with hidden satanic revelations have been discovered. And yet, we loved to sing them... This son and the album logo have a correlation to those allegations. But again, many can keep thinking that is about love. And about God. but in reality is about the Satan. Just look for the truth and the truth will find you. here is some socking info for those who want to look for the truth. https://youtu.be/UVt1ESfcR68

    He is letting her go, because she has been disloyal and dishonest. He will not change his mind.

    It is God's advice to forgive and not to take revenge. He knows if your heart is true because he watches and knows all.

    Always got the fealing it was as if God's words to humanity were being relayed to us in music by a man of the cloth, in this case someone known as a parson.

    He's singing about the "Eye of Horus" which is also the picture on the album cover itself.

    This is obviously about a romantic relationship and how the woman cheated and/or lied and convinced the man that her lies were true. He fell for the lies for so long, but found out she was being false later on and gave her another chance, but she only lied again. It's obvious how much the man loved the woman, which is why he became so gullible. this is a very deep and powerful song that expresses the emotions attached to being lied to in a relationship beautifully.

    Can't on quick search find this but must be out there. They've read the 1957 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick, "I am the eye in the sky, looking at you, I can read your mind." Read the novel, and it will all make sense.
