I can't afford to be silent
I can't afford to lose my style
What matters is to be in view
I'm seen, therefore I am
I can satisfy my hunger
I can satisfy my thirst
What about of feeling unimportant?
Now I've got my chance

This is just what I need to be in everyone’s eyes
To be hard-wired to all brains and control their minds

In the center of attention
TV glass and magazines
My private life is public
I sell everything
Days are getting shorter
They'll forget about me soon
So I jump on their bandwagon
with no taboos

This is just what I need to be in everyone’s eyes
To be hard-wired to all brains and control their minds

What if we start to talk, not only say out loud?
What if we split the battle from what really counts?
What if we disappear, go deeply underground?
What if we hide away from being stupefied?

You and I - Thousand eyes
(In need of love in the middle of the night, in the middle of the day)
(x2)

This is just what I need to be in everyone’s eyes
To be hard-wired to all brains and control their minds
(To be hard-wired to all brains and control their minds
And control their minds - x2)
Shut up!

What if we start to talk, not only say out loud?
What if we split the battle from what really counts?
What if we disappear, go deeply underground?
What if we hide away from being stupefied?

You and I - Thousand eyes
(In need of love in the middle of the night, in the middle of the day)
(x2)

    General CommentAmazing lyrics, like the rest of the album.
    Continues with the pattern of criticizing contemporary life and the consumerist mindset.

    Basically there are two voices speaking:

    One, obsessed with captivating the public eye; being a "celebrity" at all costs, showing its life to everyone. But on top of that, with a hint of "controlling their minds".
    "To be hard-wired to all brains and control their minds".

    Then, a second voice appears:
    It reflects upon stopping with all this needless media exposure, and to go back to a reclusive, isolated, deep-in-thought state.
    It's interesting that this voice suggests that "the battle" (I read madness of life and the media) must be separated from the things that really count in life.
    Even further, it wants to hide away from the stupefaction and stupidization caused by the desires of the first voice.

    "You and I - Thousand eyes
    (In need of love in the middle of the night, in the middle of the day)"

    This last part confirms the feeling of being watched constantly, even within a man - woman relationship. Basically, nothing is sacred to this "celebrity" mentality.
