"Before My Very Eyes" as written by and Wayne Watson....
I haven't seen it all but I've seen enough
Got some memories--Some I pray, one day, I'll forget
You wipe the vision clear and here it comes again
Try to hide your eyes 'cause you realize...it's sin

[Chorus]
Charmers from the left and right
They fight for my attention
"Hey-Hey, mister...look over here"
I've declared my stand...no

[Chorus 2]
I will set no evil thing before my eyes
Only good, only truth--Blind to all the lies
I know I could waiver, Lord
Sometimes I regress
So keep the light of holiness
Before my very eyes
Before my very eyes

On the city street--Writing on the walls
From the TV screen screamin' thoughts obscene
... It's everywhere

But I can rise above and not be overcome
Not by this foolishness
I can win this race I run

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2]

My ears are, pretty much, involuntary machines.
Within a give environment, my control of what goes in is limited
(unless I vacate the premises...probably not a bad idea sometimes).
But the eyes take in or ignore at my command.
I haven't seen it all... but I've seen enough!
