Bright eyes please calm down
They've got you where they want
Bright eyes, what do you see?
The pictures on the screen
Strangers on the airwaves control you from the sky
Taken by the slipstream they lead you to the fire
Goodbye, they've got you now
Bright eyes, where have you been?
The lights that hypnotize
Bright eyes what do you see?
The pictures on the screen
All but a moment has passed you by

    General CommentThis song is amazing...thanks for uploading the lyrics.

    First heard this on a Grey's Anatomy episode (I think).

    The band might now be called "Other Lives"...I'm still not sure why they haven't yet gained popularity, they are such an incredibly talented band. They sure are more deserving then a lot of other bands these days, like that hillbilly foursome Kings of Leon, for example.

    General CommentImagine being someone who seeks depth and has a different level of knowledge in their lives. Basically, someone with a degree of enlightenment and a healthy distrust of the frivolous and numbing aspects of pop-culture.

    You meet someone who seems capable of keeping up with you on this, only to see them slip into in-authenticity and a "Party-girl" Life-style that is anathema to your way of life.

    Trying to bring her back to the insights she once had proves futile, her eyes are still bright but she rejects her own spark, those who would dull it have her now. Seeing it hurts too much and you're trying too hard, which just hurts the relationship. Leaving you realizing that you have to say Goodbye.
