"Red Eye" as written by Chauncey A. Hollis, Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, Alana Mychal Haim, Danielle Sari Haim and Este Arielle Haim....
Hey!
Love, hate, play this game of give and take
Won't stay, we all make mistakes
I'll say, what a wonderful escape
I erase
Hey, hey, hey

Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
I don't know what to do
I'm going insane and I really don't know why
There's only one thing to do
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)

Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
I don't know what to do
I'm going insane and I really don't know why
There's only one thing to do
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)

I can't understand, I don't understand it
The visions in my head
I just can't make sense of it
I can't understand, I don't understand it
The visions in my head
I just can't make sense of it

'Cause I can never run
I can never run, I can never run
There's no use for it baby
I can never run
I can never run, I can never run
I’m so used to you baby
I can never run, I can never run
I can never run
There’s no use for it baby
I can never run
I can never run, I can never run
I’m so used to you baby

Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
I don't know what to do
I'm going insane and I really don't know why
There's only one thing to do
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)

Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
I don't know what to do
I'm going insane and I really don't know why
There's only one thing to do
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)

Ooh! Ooh!
Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
Baby oh oh
Ooh! Ooh!
Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
Baby oh oh
Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
I don't know what to do
I'm going insane and I really don't know why
There's only one thing to do
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)

Things get crazy and I feel I'm losing my mind
I don't know what to do
I'm going insane and I really don't know why
There's only one thing to do
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)
I'm floating through the night on a red eye, red eye
(Through the night on a red eye, red eye)

    My InterpretationI feel like it can be interpreted in 2 ways. One being of course escaping your troubles and catching a red eye flight. The other being escaping your troubles courtesy of cannabis when you smoke you get high like a plane and unless you use eye drops will make your eyes red. Red eye flight life.

    My InterpretationI think its about falling asleep to escape from your troubles while intoxicated, or insomnia and going insane from lack of sleep due to troubles racing through your mind. Reminds me of Day N Nite.

    My Interpretation<3 I think this song is describing someone man or woman who knows that they need to get away from his/her woman/man because they know they shouldnt be together for whatever reason. But cant help it because they're in love. Its a love hate type of relationship and they dont know what to do so they escape feeling upset through the night by using cannabis.

    General CommentThis is clearly about smoking pot b/c he's a troubled mind. He can't sleep so he smokes cannabis, hence the red eyes. This is a common theme in his songs. I don't really think there's much to say about this song, it's pretty straight forward.

    General CommentFor me, this song talks about depression and staying up all night thinking about everything.
