"Eyes Without A Face" as written by Steve Stevens and Billy Idol....
I'm all out of hope
One more bad dream could bring a fall
When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive
It's easy to tease
But hard to get release

Eyes without a face
Eyes without a face
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

Eyes without a face
Eyes without a face
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip.
Steal a car and go to las vegas oh, the gigolo pool.
Hanging out by the state line,
Turning holy water into wine
Drinkin' it down
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip.
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Is love what was once
So alive and new
But it's gone from your eyes
I'd better realize

Eyes without a face
Eyes without a face
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

Such a human waste your eyes without a face
And now it's getting worse.

    General Commentmaybe he has a girl in his life who he loved once and still loves, but she has become someone else, a deceiver, and it's hard for him to love her because he knows she lies and she is not the person who he fell for anymore, and he senses it but hasn't come around to it yet, so he doesn't know how to deal with it really

    General CommentThe song is sort of an indirect narrative of a French horror film called "Les Yeux Sans Visage," which of course means "Eyes Without A Face." In this film, a young girl's face is left horribly scarred by a car accident and her father, a surgeon, abducts other young girls and attempts to graft their skin onto his daughter's face. She wears a mask that reveals only her eyes (hence the title) and her father gradually goes insane. For a better summary of the parallels between the film and the song, see imdb.com/title/tt0053459/board/nest/…

    General CommentI think this song is about billy falling for a girl. But, she is a very sad girl hense, "eyes without a face". She used to have a soul but its almost gone now she's not mean she just fake and always sad. For example he's out of hope to tell her. But than she "calls him on the phone to tell him she's alone" and even though he doesnt want to go he goes anyways. At the end he says its such a, "human waste" I think he means she couldve been special but since so many things happened like billy said, "its just getting worse". So there's no way for this girl to get her feelings back shes just an empty soul. Anyways that's how i view the song please tell me if you have another opinion im very open.

    General CommentSuch a Beautiful Song....

    I personally feel that the song is about the dood falling in love with someone who he believes cares about him. But Sadly, in reality she doesn't give a fock about him. Soon enough she starts going off like a tramp while he's still crazy over her. He finally realizes that she has changed.. But still wants to believe there is a connection somewhere. AND now finally when its over after he tried so hard to maintain his relationship does he realize what an atrocity she truely was. An insane wh0re with no personality who only looked for what could benift her.

    Such a human waste....

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who has come to the realisation that his relationship is a lie and the woman is not the person he thought she was. She has no depth and once she decides the fun is over she moves on to the next thing/person and he sees her for who she really is. He's mourning a love that apparently never was anything more than superficial.

    General CommentGosh, no one has commented on this song? This is about how he feels about a an ex-girlfriend of his, and he doesn't think much of her. I guess she's a liar and a cheat. But to be honest, I don't know what he means by accusing of her of having "eyes without a face." My guess is that ... oh geez it could be many things. She senses the world but doesn't truly express or feel anything. In other words, she is shallow. Anyone?

    General CommentI think it means she's all eyes (looks and appearances), but really just a faceless liar and cheat.
    Why are there so many Idol songs with no comments? The bloke's a f***in' hero! We must buy Devil's Playground and support the King of snarlin' adrenaline-rock!

    General CommentThere are missing lyrics in the bride.

    "Hangin' out by the State Line, turning Holy Water into Wine,
    Drinking it down..."

    Insert in-between "...The Gigolo Pool..." and "..I'm on a Bus...
