It's all in the eyes of a dreamer
It's all in the eyes of a man
All the things we've done in life
And all the things we've planned
Is the world as sad as it seems?
Where are men's hopes?
Where are men's dreams?
In the eyes of a dreamer
In the eyes of a man
All the songs have been sung
All the saints have been hung
The wars and cries have been wailed
All the people have been jailed
In the eyes of a dreamer
In the eyes of a man
And you are the man

    General CommentThe message of this song is nihilistic. A thing is just a thing, the dreamer creates his own truths in life but it's ultimately meaningless. There ain't no reason or rhyme to it.

    General CommentGotta be his best! this proves that not all people are bad even if they have done bad things and in a sense this song reflects Charles Manson's dreams.....

    General CommentThis has been and will always be my favorite song of Charles Manson. Everything starts out from a dream, which exploits internally what we believe in, and how we see the world as it is. There are different points of views ranging from one person to another; never exactly the same or hardly. The line, "Is the world as sad as it seems?" pretty much speaks the true. We deem what is sad to us: some may find death to be a horrible sad event, while to others (who are often times, due to world taboo) see is as an enjoyable state of mind. We all have our own prejudices, beliefs, dreams, and make us who we are. If you can see the world in its purest state: there is no line between good and evil. For my own personal opinion, like others I do not condone what he did, but his music I love with a passion.

    General CommentI wish WanderingHypocrite had been Sharon Tate's fetus. Then we wouldn't have to read his shit about every single Manson song.
