"Communist Eyes" as written by and P. Smear D. Crash....
I'm looking through
Communist eyes
I'm seeing planes in bloodshot skies
I see the flag of a working people
Who conceal the lies in the stars
and sickle
It's a double edge

Communist eyes-c'mon inside
I can't ever find the way out
Communist eyes-lost inside
I never get a day out

I'm looking through Communist eyes
All I see is an old man's alibi
There's a world outside
but I'm unaware
I open my books but the pages stare
It's a double edge

Communist eyes-all so blind
I can't even play the game now

I'm living through Communist times
I wave my flag and hold me head high
I can feel the glory of my
comrades in masses
But I'm waiting for the day
when this madness passes
It's a double edge...

    General Commentits about darbys feelings on communism... how its a double edged sword. how its intended to help the working class but merely allows a corrupt government to surpress education

    General CommentDarby was a social anarchist like joe strummer from the clash, johnny rotten from the sex pistols and a bunch of other early punks. the reality of the failure of the soviet union was apparent to everyone, but american capitalism trapples on human rights too, so they all felt alienated. they wanted socialism without a government, where people are free to actually live in equality with no one above anyone else.

    General CommentWhile I can see where Darby is coming from (in all of its uneducated punkrock glory), I do have to say that I, for the most part, completely disagree with the message in this song. Having gotten that said, though, I still find this to be one of my favorites from the Germs. Just too poppy and catchy.
