The song is from the perspective of Ayreon after the events of The Final Experiment. His spirit roaming free, he witnesses that he was unable to prevent the horrific future that his prophecies predicted and looks on with sadness at the state of humanity on Mars, hoping for a better future.
"It is the 6th century. This is where it all began. My tired body has passed away, but my once-tortured spirit is finally free now. My name is... Ayreon."
I've crossed the edge where time disappears
My life has been taken by the charm of the seer
My conscience is clear, I committed no sin
My spirit roams free now, carried by the wind
My mission has failed, the spell has been cast
I wasn't the first one and I won't be the last
This can't be the end, so let it begin
My message will reach you, carried by the wind
Out here on Mars I now realise
Mankind has vanished, tears fill my eyes
There must be a world I can live in
My spirit will find it, carried by the wind
"Temple of the Cat"
