"Dice Behind Your Shades" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Dice behind your shades
Roll the dice behind your shades
Everybody`s trying to make you feel stupid
And you know they`re lyin`
`Cause their lips are moving
Bet this one is twice your age

Come on
Roll the dice behind your shades
Roll the dice behind your shades

Safer way to be strange
Roll the dice behind your shades

The avant garde unlock the door
You`re takin` notes and nothing more
A guy snaps your picture on roller blades

Come on roll the dice behind your shades
Roll the dice behind your shades

Safest way to be strange
Roll the dice behind your shades

Take it to a higher place
Where this world ain`t in your face
You and me, Carson McCullers
Take it to a higher plane
Take me where the action ain`t
Open windows
Open shutters

Bet this one is twice your age
Ohh...
The avante gardes unlock your cage
And you`re sick to death of the latest rage
Afraid of love it always fades.

Come on
Roll the dice behind your shades

    Song MeaningRoll the Dice behind the shades means Roll your eyes at all this crap you are seeing. Possibly written for a girl who the singer sees someone 'twice her age' hitting on.

    Everyone around her is trying to talk down to her/ to make her feel stupid. When all they are doing is lying and making up stuff. She has gotten stuck in a pseudo intellectual crowd when she really needs to take it to a higher place/ where the fake action ain't/ ... open windows/ open shutters (of the mind?). Looking at all around her.
