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 hidden video recording equipment.
It has also been noted that 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. See "Eye in the Sky."

You know,looking back into those bands,those songs and the lyrics,what were they really saying?
I don't know,was there a message there are not?
I guess it would be up to the listeners interpretation.
You turned me into an APP fan! I think it was you who got me listening to Eye in the Sky. Then I found it in a bargain bin one day. Now I have the entire collection (except for Freudiana.)
But who in the hell writes a song like that? Who in the hell writes lyrics like that and slips it into a sappy love song like some sort of song writing ninja and plants those seeds into an entire generation of young people's brains only to detonate at some later point in life like some sort of truth grenade?
