"Evil Eye" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Ooh, What's the color of the next car?
(Yeah, RED, ya bastard)
Yeah, RED, ya bastard
I don't believe in god, but I believe in this shit
Not me
I like to bring them down
Not me
Some fool who dumb dumb do
But not, not, not me

Uh, some people get a freak out of me
Some people can see that I can see
Some people want to see what I see
Some people put an evil eye on me

I have the evil eye
I see your soul
You wear it on your face
It's worn in what you do

What's the color of the next car?
(Yeah, RED, ya bastard)
Yeah, RED, ya bastard
I don't believe in god, but I believe in this shit
Not me
I like to bring them down
Not me
Some fool who dumb dumb do
But not, not, not me

Uh, some people get a freak out of me

It looks so clean
But I can see
The crawling, crawling creatures
Suspended in solution
No, no there's no solution

Uh, some people get a freak out of me

    My InterpretationThis song is kinda self explanatory, the narrator can see things (probably shadowy creatures) normal people can't see, and it drives him insane. The way I see it, he finds different people react to him different ways
    some people get a freak out of him - people who think he's a weirdo (maybe know about what he can see?)
    some people can see what I can see - other people with his "gift," who he probably sees as allies
    some people wanna see what I see - people (maybe therapists) who are intrigued with him and want his gift
    some people put an evil eye on me - people who are either suspicious of him, or have pinned his gift with the name "evil eye" which is how he seems to refer to it ("I have the evil eye/I see into your soul...")

    Song MeaningUPDATE FROM THE SOURCE:
    Alex said on Twitter that this song could be loosely based off of The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
