"Telescope Eyes (LP version)" as written by and Chauntelle/dupree Dupree....
Oh, you humor me today
Calling me out to play
With your telescope eyes, metal teeth
I can't be seen with you, you freak

Go cry, go run away
Let your short legs carry you away
With your big dress and your dirty hair
Your pen's waiting for you
Just get far, far away from me
I don't want your disease

[Chorus]
Please don't make me cry
Please don't make me cry
I'm just like you
I know you know
I'm just like you
So leave me alone

Dear Matthew why can't you see
You're just not near enough like me
With your telescope eyes, metal teeth
I can't be seen with you

[Chorus: x4]

Oh, you humor me today

    General CommentTo me, this version song means lameness. I don't see how it was necessary to totally castrate the lyrics of the song just because they changed the speed and arrangement. I don't know if it was their choice or not, but the result of cutting "you freak," and the second verse is that the (IMO great) meaning of the song is totally obscured.

    General CommentI heard that Warner Bros. asked the band to re-write the song into this... Why would they do that, and cut out the word "freak"?

    General Commentthis song is about the "monsters in your closet" type of a thing.

    the music video definitely shows that. :)
