"Cyclops" as written by Bruce Dickinson and Roger J. Ramirez....
Cyclops woman got one eye in her head
Mascara clotted vision she is fed
Cyclops woman can't see nothing at all
She got a pin prick spiral hole
She can't see nothing nothing at all
She can't see nothing nothing at all
Cyclops woman dying in her shell
Guilt got her trapped in her nailed well
Cyclops woman is the eye of the world
Who's reflection's in the retina?
She can't see nothing nothing at all
She can't see nothing, nothing at all
Dilate, Dial-ate

    General CommentI think that the song itself is cool to listen but the text is just crap. There are much better songs on portrait of an american family

    General CommentOh, and there are some whispered words in the beginning, and I think they are "God is in... his holy temple... God is in... his holy temple", but I could be wrong.

    General Commenti think Glorge is right with teh whole media comment i think it is about how peopel are blinded by the media and the 'one eye in her head' is just saying u have one judgement and one opinion given to you by teh media.

    General CommentThe one eye i think represents the one vision you're allotted by society. You're democrat or republican, gentile or jew, punk or prep, man or woman, pro-life or pro choice. That mascara is her femenimity (sp?) blinding her. Her expectations as a woman that she has to live up to, without a concern for who she is or what she thinks. And the song asks who she sees in the world, but then says she can't see nothing, nothing at all. So she wants to see the world, but is essentially blind to it.

    General Commenta thought: the cyclops woman who can't see anything, having only one eye... lack of depth perception, or rather, the inability to see both sides of something. thus, she's unable to see the way things really are.

    General Commenti think its about a woman who has an abusive bf or husband but she doesnt want to leave because she is blind

    General CommentI think this could be a general statement on women in our culture. 'mascara-clotted vision she is fed' The mascara could represent the media, which blinds her of what she should be and feeds her what they want her to be.
