"Black Eye" as written by and Paul Durham....
Jane can't keep herself home tonight
Keep herself believing she'll be all right
Keep herself awake to a body that's close
To the hands and the feet that nobody else knows

All the way from London she looks away
Laughing at herself and her black eyeshade
Boy can't keep his pain under the glass
Laughing at the world as it just slides past

I know this black eye wastes these days
Wastes this light
I know this black eye wastes these days
Wastes this sunlight

Maybe permission ain't good enough
Maybe you need someone who can stand your love
Maybe there's somebody who's cool to the touch
Keep yourself for hurting yourself so much

I know this black eye wastes these days Wastes this light
I know this black eye wastes these days
Wastes this sunlight

Let me crucify you
Let me sacrifice our love
Let me resurrect you
Be my resurrection now
Let me celebrate you
Let me hold your head up high
Let me hang you from the sky

I know this black eye wastes
It wastes
I know this black eye wastes
It wastes
I know this black eye wastes these days
Wastes this sunlight
This sunlight
This sunlight
Sunlight
