"Something In My Eye" as written by and Oliver Howard Knights Stephan Gale Paridjanian....
From the chaos of the game,
Life spat you out
You dont need a name,
I remember you somehow
Those tiny little hands,
Hold up my world
I put you in my plans,
My black hole little girl

There's no doubt about us,
Time is running out around us
I can't cry,
It's just something in my eye.

From the deepness of the sea,
To the shallows of the city
I travel down the phone line,
Bodyless and free,
Those tiny little hands,
Those tiny little plans,
Are turning into towers,
Crushed against the sun.

There's no doubt about us,
Time is running out around us
Something In My Eye Lyrics on
I can't cry,
It's just something in my eye.

Something passed right through me,
Someone came and threw me,
No one ever knew me,
People shadows to me.

There's no doubt about us,
Time is running out around us
I can't cry,
It's just something in my eye.

    General CommentI love this song! I think it's very clever, though I'm not sure exactly what it's about.

    General CommentI think the references to 'tiny little hands' and 'my black hole little girl' suggest he is talking about a child and the effect of this new life on existing life plans. Then the 'something in my eye' seems like the reaction to having a kid and not knowing what the future holds; he can't cry but he is reacting to the change. Also he seems more aware of time passing, and running out, and 'tiny little plans' quickly turn into towers.

    It's my first listen of this album, and seems like an interesting choice for a single.
