There's got to be some way out of here.
There's got to be some way out of here.
Like an ocean snake,
I slithered in twine
and played in your tears
like they were brine

They said, "Just take some more of this
and you'll feel better, love."

Oh, what a pair of eyes!
Sadder than blue.
Richer than blood.
Deeper than truth.
I cursed.
I prayed.
I prayed, and then I cursed some more.

But I can't deal with anything
if you make me cry.

Oh, just to be an ice cube in your glass!
Oh, just to be an ice cube in your glass!
My sinews, they burn
for your touch;
To be drank into your gut.

They said, "Just take some more of this
and you'll feel better, love."

Oh, what a pair of eyes!
Sadder than blue.
Richer than blood.
Deeper than truth.
I cursed.
I prayed.
I prayed, and then I cursed some more.

But I can't deal with anything
if you make me cry.

Take some more of this
and you'll feel better, love.

Oh, what a pair of eyes!
Sadder than blue.
Richer than blood.
Deeper than truth.
I cursed.
I prayed.
I prayed, and then I cursed some more.

But I can't deal with anything
if you make me cry.

    General CommentRecently I found out that Thomas Hardy wrote a novel called A Pair of Blue Eyes. Think there's any connection? (You know, since Eustacia Vye is a Hardy character and stuff....)
