What in the hell was the matter with me when I look around?
Do me a favor and lock all the doors in the house.
Because now (because now)
It's not right (it's not right)
And I'm noticing things (noticing things)
Show me the light or the lightswitch and try not to notice how
Color is cycling slowly and fading and now
It's all gone (It's all gone)
It went gray (It went gray)
And I'm noticing things (noticing things)
I'm noticing things.

Subtle oddities, completely lost upon your eyes.
Completely crossed and hypnotised.
Subtle oddities, they form a face in outer space.

Don't be afraid but the old chandelier in the living room
Fell from the ceiling and landed on top of itself.
And I know (and I know)
It's not real (It's not real)
And it never was there (never was there)
Dozens of chess pieces crawling around like a centipede,
Only appear when I look at the statues that bleed out their eyes (out their eyes)
It's not blood (it's not blood)
And it never was there (never was there)
It never was there.

Subtle oddities, completely lost upon your eyes.
Completely crossed and hypnotized.
Subtle oddities, they form a face in outer space.

I knew it all along.
That something here was wrong.
And now it's spread to you.
What am I to do?

Subtle oddities, completely lost upon your eyes.
Completely crossed, and hypnotized.
Subtle oddities, they form a face in outer space.

    General CommentThis song most likely represents a descent into madness.
    "Lost upon your eyes" could mean that they're alone in seeing these things, the mad person doesn't see the same terror they feel when they look into the other's eyes.
