Photographer's Note

Eye in the sky (1982)

DONT THINK SORRYS EASILY SAID
DONT TRY TURNING TABLES INSTEAD
YOUVE TAKEN LOTS OF CHANCES BEFORE
BUT IM NOT GONNA GIVE ANYMORE
DONT ASK ME
THATS HOW IT GOES
CAUSE PART OF ME KNOWS WHAT YOURE THINKIN.

DONT SAY WORDS YOURE GONNA REGRET
DONT LET THE FIRE RUSH TO YOUR HEAD
IVE HEARD THE ACCUSATION BEFORE
AND I AINT GONNA TAKE ANY MORE
BELIEVE ME
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES
MADE SOME OF THE LIES WORTH BELIEVING.

CHORUS:
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 DONT NEED TO SEE ANY MORE
TO KNOW THAT
I CAN READ YOUR MIND, I CAN READ YOUR MIND.

DONT LEAVE FALSE ILLUSIONS BEHIND
DONT CRY CAUSE I AINT CHANGING MY MIND
SO FIND ANOTHER FOOL LIKE BEFORE
CAUSE I AINT GONNA LIVE ANYMORE BELIEVING
SOME OF THE LIES WHILE ALL OF THE SIGNS ARE DECEIVING.

More info:
"Eye in the Sky" is a 1982 song by the Alan Parsons Project. Possibly the most successful song the group has ever had, it reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. However, it did not fare as well in the UK.

The song is in part a reference to George Orwell's classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, regarding a possible future in which individual privacy is virtually non-existent due to the ever-watching eye of Big Brother. In the novel, citizens are constantly monitored by satellites and hidden video recording equipment.

It has also been noted by Eric Woolfson, the songwriter and vocalist of this song, spent a lot of time in casinos and in commercial districts, fascinated by the hidden security cameras that monitor gamblers and shoppers, hence the theme of the song.

The 1:54 minute instrumental piece entitled Sirius immediately precedes Eye in the Sky on the original recording, which then seamlessly leads into Eye in the Sky as a second track. However, most radio stations choose to play Eye in the Sky alone, due to time constraints.
