"Your Eyes" as written by Marcell Russell and Gerald Antoine Richardson....
Align your eyes with mine
Align your eyes with mine

A ghost in storefront glass
Reflecting neon pasts
A buzz inside your headphones
And in your head

Always align your eyes with mine
Align your eyes with mine

I look with the magnifying glass
As you empty your past
I know what you've been through
I know you

You've got no where to go
You've got nothing to be but alone
Throw your weapon to the floor
You're not a target anymore
You won't need it anymore

Align your eyes with mine
Align your eyes with mine

As the magnet lifts
Another to its lips
You won't see beyond me
You won't see

Always align your eyes with mine
Align your eyes with mine

Tonight your own best friend
Makes off with your plans
Your secrets have been driven
Faster than cars

They've got no where to go
They've got nothing to do but to go
Take your troubles to the door
There's no secrets anymore
You won't need them anymore

Align your eyes with mine
Align your eyes with mine

A ghost in storefront glass
Reflecting neon pasts
A buzz inside your headphones
And in your head

Always align your eyes with mine
Align your eyes with mine

The hope of days to come
Still wet, still young
The lights from the parking lot bend
In a dizzying spiral ball

I've got nothing to do
I've got nothing to be but at home
Throw your papers to the floor
And hide them somewhere where no one knows
Tell me something when we're alone
Tell me something when we're alone
Show me somewhere where no one goes
Show me somewhere where no one knows
You don't need anything else

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me a NY Times article on an experiment about falling in love. After you and your possible lover both answer 36 questions about you and your past, you have to look at each other eyes for 4 minutes non-stop. Nerve wracking.

    "Align your eyes with mine, A ghost in storefront glass, Reflecting neon pasts"

    When you look into their eyes it's like you're seeing their past and their future.
