lyrics

You were standin in the corner lookin straight ahead into space.
When somehow I felt your gaze fall flat on my pockmarked face.


“What if I told you there’s a balm, that could cure all that ails you, would you want to know where it lies?”
I said “No…Goddamn your bloodshot eyes!”


You were standin on the platform, with the New York Post in your hands.
And I was frownin into something that I couldn’t quite understand.


You said “The knowledge that you seek could all be easily yours, and there would be no one more learned or wise.”
I said “No…Goddamn your bloodshot eyes!”


You think to catch me looking, take me unaware.
But I can smell you from up 14 flights of stairs.
You think to catch me off my guard and by surprise,
But it ain’t hard to spot those goddamn bloodshot eyes.


I sat content on a bench while my loved ones played by my side.
And you sauntered up slow, you weren’t even trying to hide.


You said “What if I could secure it so you worry no more? What would you give me for your peace of mind?”
I said “Yes…Goddamn my bloodshot eyes.”
I said “Yes…Goddamn my bloodshot eyes, but yours as well, you slithering fiend!”
Goddamn your bloodshot eyes.
