"Stuntman" as written by Sergio Pizzorno and Christopher Karloff....
No map looking for the one I love
Cause the one I love is here

No map looking for the one who stands
Cause he's arming me from fear

We got tuned in by the other side
Lives spent digging holes for the ones that hide

See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes

More cuts taken for the one in silence
Now he sits between my ears

His moves in madness how I love the rush
Could you wipe away these tears

We got taken by
A rush of blood

My trains leaving now
How I wish I could

See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes

See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes

See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes
I'm a stunt man
See the white of my eyes

    General CommentThere seems to be several mistakes, unless I hear it completely wrong.

    "He has tuned into the other side" or "We got tuned into the other side"

    "Lives spent digging holes to the ones you hide" also sounds more correct than "For the ones that hide". To me at least.

    As for the "See the white of my/your eyes" lyric, this seems to be the most difficult one to figure out. Having the same issues on Kasabians forum! I think it sounds either like "Your" or even perhaps "See the widened eyes" which could also make sense here.

    Song Meaning"I wish I could/See the white of your eyes." Did you ever hear that old saying, "Don't shoot until you can see the whites of their eyes"? On this whole album ("Empire"), shooting is used as a metaphor for love/sex ("Shoot the Runner," or in "Me Plus One" - "Should've shot myself on the run.") So I'm reading it that the "stuntman" can't "shoot" the person whose eyes he can't see. Makes about as much sense as anything...

    General CommentI might have to change my mind about the "My / Your" eyes part. On my CD Cover sleeve, it has some handwritten text that says "See the whites of my eyes".

    General CommentI agree with dleggett, I've been listening to the song trying to get the lyrics. but about the my/your bit, it definately sounds like 'your' in the song at least, in some parts it sounds like he's saying "I see the whites of your eyes and I'm a stuntman" so that makes me think that's what it is.. also someplace I read "cause he's on his knees in fear' instead of he's arming me for fear.. which I think sounds better but I have no idea which is right hahah.
    very awesome song anyway, I love it. really intense & dancy..

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite tracks off of Empire. I always thought he was saying "See the watering eyes". It makes partial sense. But now I'm listening to it more closely, and I'm not quite sure...
