I've got my hands out in front of my face
But I can hardly see
I've bathed myself in holy water
But it doesn't bother me

Under my skin, upon my head
Inside the walls, beneath my bed
My black and whites are turning red

Cover my eyes and tell me
Am I really blind
Cover my eyes and tell me
Have I lost my mind

I've got my fingers to the blade
But I can't feel a thing
Open my eyes in salty water
But it doesn't even sting

Under my skin, upon my head
Stuck in my throat, beneath my breath
My black and whites are turning red

Cover my eyes and tell me
Am I really blind
Cover my eyes and tell me
Have I lost my mind
Have I lost my mind
Have I lost my mind

Under my skin, upon my head
The lunatic is playing dead
My black and whites are turning red

Cover my eyes and tell me
Am I really blind
Cover my eyes and tell me
Have I lost my mind

Cover my eyes and tell me
Am I really blind
Cover my eyes and tell me
Have I lost my
Have I lost my mind
Have I lost my mind
Have I lost my mind

    General CommentDefinitely an awesome song. This was during the phase of Dream Theater where they were being pressured to write a few "radio songs" (see "You Not Me" and "Burning My Soul"). I wonder if this was some sort of response to that...or maybe it's just a cool song with no real meaning. I don't know.
