"Eyeless" as written by Mickael Gordon Thomson, Craig Alan Jones, Christopher Michael Fehn, Michael Shawn Crahan, Corey Todd Taylor, Nathan Jonas Jordison, Paul Dedrick Gray and Sidney George Wilson....
Insane am I the only motherfucker with a brain?
I'm hearing voices but all they do is complain
How many times have you wanted to kill
Everything and everyone
Say you'll do it but never will

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

I am my father's son
He's a phantom, a mystery and that leaves me nothing!
How many times have you wanted to die?
It's too late for me, all you have to do is get rid of me!

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

It's all in your head
It's all in my head
It's all in your head

I tried you lied to me for so long
Everywhere I go, there's a sense of it
Freak on my antics and give me a choice
Doesn't matter if I give a shit
It's shit that you gave me

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

It's all in your head
It's all in my head
It's all in your head

Do you want to feel pain? takin' my name in vain
Caring never felt so lame inside
Anybody else got pride? do you want to take my life?
Maybe I'll reverse my ride
Who the fuck are you? fuck you!
Better suck it up 'cause you bled through
Better get away from me
Stay the fuck away from me!

I feel safe
Seems your saved
I feel safe
It seems your saved

Look me in my brand new eye
Look me in my brand new eye
Look me in my brand new eye

Motherfucker!

Look me in my brand new eye
Look me in my brand new eye
Look me in my brand new eye

Look me in my brand new

    General CommentThis song has many themes. Mainly It's about Corey's Dad and how he never knew him becuse he died before he was born. "You can't see California without Marlon Brando's Eyes" was yelled by a homeless man in NYC. "It's all in your head" referres the best advice that a therapist or psychiatrist can give is that it's just all in your head and you have to fix it yourself.

    Song MeaningThe Song is Called Eyeless because YOU ARE EYELESS UNLESS YOU HEAR AND KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THE SONG IS A FUCKING BOUT FUCK SHITS

    Insane am I the only motherfucker with a brain?
    I'm hearing voices but all they do is complain

    xxLooking around everywhere, wanting to start a war because of shit that is going on, the shit that we have to take everydayxx

    How many times have you wanted to kill
    Everything and everyone
    Say you'll do it but never will
    xxThe anger that is inside because you have nothing, has thoughts of killings that would alleviate the mind, but you never do it because youre scaredxx

    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

    xxIm in California and it means that you cant see California if you dont see what Marlon Brando once saw, the luxurious shit thats here, also meaning that you dont see or experience California because you dont have shit.xx

    I am my Father's son
    He's a phantom, a mystery and that leaves me
    Nothing!
    xxThe dudes father left like mine did and yeah, it leaves me fucking nothingxxx
    How many times have you wanted to die?
    xxMany fucking times have I wanted to diexx
    It's too late for me. All you have to do is get rid of me!
    xx This means that you cant kill people like us because you dont know what its like, and its likely we will all take the things that everyone else has to alleviate the pain that no one else sees or tries to help because everyone's so fucking stupid and scared, which belongs also to the first line of the fucking song.xx

    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    xxDrilling you with the fact that if you fuck ugly chicks and living in a non-penthouse place and not being the boss is not seeing Califonia fucking retards, it also means to go GodFather on people from now onxxx

    It's all in your head
    It's all in my head
    It's all in your head
    XXHes Talking about the doubt thats what I felt when I heard this fucking songXX

    I tried you lied to me for so long
    Everywhere I go, there's a sense of it
    xxHes talking about everyone that told him to fucking stay peaceful that working your way up and listening to everyone is the only fucking shit stupid way to get to the fucking top but where is he now piece of shits? muthafuckers!


    Freak on my antics and give me a choice
    Doesn't matter if I give a shit
    It's shit that you gave me
    XXHes talking about his fucking songs and how he is able to play a prank on society and have people that dont know the angry feeling inside all the fucking time that its to the point that he doesnt give a fuck that people give him a choice to stop, because any shit that he gives, is shit that they gave himXX

    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
    xxIm about to get a fucking gun, and become Marlon Brando in real lifexx

    It's all in your head
    It's all in my head
    It's all in your head
    xxYou are hallucinating fuck shits, thats why youre so fucked in this society because society doesnt give a fuck about youxx

    Do you want to feel pain? Takin' my name in vain
    xxThe fucking anger that comes when someone that is a fucking idiot comes to you and tries to fucking rob you, and calls you by a different name by calling you something elsexx
    Caring never felt so lame inside
    xxThen you try to help this lame shit because everyone tells you to be fine with people that try to rob you, you learn his name his story then you realize he doesnt want to be an ally and he tries to scare you by saying he's going to take your lifexx
    Anybody else got pride? Do you want to take my life?
    xxNow that he has realized that no one really gives a fuck and doesnt want to be helped and they do stupid shit because they are fucking stupid, they have too much pride and rather rob people for their personal gain that they waste on drugs and shit that makes them even fucking killable, he is now talking to any other people that want to do the same thing, since now he has a knifexx
    Maybe I'll reverse my ride
    Who the fuck are you? Fuck you!
    xxHes talking about the fuck shits that give him shit but they see the anger in his eyes and become scared and want to get awayxx
    Better suck it up 'cause you bled through
    xxhaha just like it saysxx
    Better get away from me
    Stay the fuck away from me!
    xxHe's talking to the people that think of hurting him, because he is sick of trying to save peoplexx

    I feel safe
    Seems your saved
    I feel safe
    It seems your saved
    xxThe anger is gone, so he feels safe, it seems YOURE SAVED[because his anger is gone, get it? fuck!]


    Look me in my brand new eye
    Look me in my brand new eye
    Look me in my brand new eye
    xxIT MEANS THAT HE NOW HAS A NEW EYE THAT SEES THINGS MORE CLEARER, AND TO THOSE THAT WANT TO FUCK OVER THE COMPASSION WILL BE FUCKING KILLED, NO QUESTIONS FUCKING ASKEDxx
    Motherfucker!

    Look me in my brand new eye
    Look me in my brand new eye
    Look me in my brand new eye

    Look me in my brand new
    xxWHAT I WILL SAY WHEN FUCK SHITS TRY TO FUCK WITH MY COMPASSIONxx FUCK CHRIST AT THIS SHIT

    General CommentActually that isn't true, if you knew anything it was about a bum, on the street who kept on repeating it as they walked by.

    General CommentOH, well sorry there, slipknot expert but you can kiss my ass. you know that there is more to the song than just the chorus, which IS what i was talking about. also, if you could read between the lines, you would know that there are other meanings to the song than those that are most obvious.

    General CommentYes, the chorus is derived from a freak screaming it in the streets. The song is about how Corey's dad doesn't know him
