"Black Widow's Eyes" as written by and Pete Townshend....
You jumped out of an alley
With surprise in your black widow's eyes
I was prepared to be unprepared
Been preparing for lights

I fell right in love with you
Into a thousand parts I blew
I fell right in love with you

I was caught in a corner
He recoiled from a broken romance
Taking breath after once undead
I had a firm grip on my pants

I fell right in love with you
Through a hundred hearts you flew
I fell right in love with you

Strange that when infatuation calls
We think that we've got real love in our life
It pumps like the pressure in a station hall
As the express train thunders on by

I fell right in love with you
As the blood came blowing through
I fell right in love with you

Across the room
I saw your eyes
Black window looking back at me
You held a gun
As children cried
You touched some wires
They shattered me

I was blown into a blue
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you

I rose up to the station
Smelt your scent by the door
You stood waiting so patient
Just one wait, then no more

I fell right in love with you
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you

Across the room
I saw your eyes
Black window looking back at me
You held a gun
As children cried
You touched some wires
They shattered me

    General Commentthis song is about the hostage crisis in Russia (i think it was Beslam) a couple years ago. Basically, a victim saw his capture right before she blew herself up and said she had the most beautiful eyes he had ever seen. the child he was holding died from the explosion.


    basically, its about stockholme syndrome.
