woke up feeling like it puts the lotion in the basket
can you even recall the times?

before your pheremones took your common sense hostage
and left you in the rain to dry?

and if you've ever gotten everything that you wanted
well wouldn't that be some king shit?

but as the case would have it well you certainly haven't
you've been hand-to-mouthing every step of it

all the old-timers in the neighborhood swear that you're cursed
with a face people hate

but every single one of them's an endless variation of
popeye raised on lead paint

and all the woulda/coulda/shoulda didn't cause my buddy's over
get to it when this here is done

repeated time and time again it grows into a second skin
i can't believe there even could be


a secret life between your eyes that i don't seem to see
are you satisfied with waiting here for
heaven forever?

a secret life between your eyes that i don't seem to see
are you satisfied with waiting here for
heaven forever?


waiting for your schemes only weakens at the seams
all the scenes that you've spun in the dark

and who wants weak desires waitin' for em in the wings
after years of leathering your scars

and all the woulda/coulda/shoulda didn't cause my buddy's over
get to it when this here is done

repeated time and time again it grows into a second skin
i can't believe there even could be


a secret life between your eyes that i don't seem to see
are you satisfied with waiting here for
heaven forever?

a secret life between your eyes that i don't seem to see
are you satisfied with waiting here for
heaven forever?

a secret life between your eyes that i don't seem to see
are you satisfied with waiting here for
heaven forever?

a secret life between your eyes that i don't seem to see
are you satisfied with waiting here for
heaven forever?
heaven forever?
heaven forever?
heaven forever?
heaven forever?
heaven for never?

    Song MeaningHaunting melody feels half hearted. Sounds like a narrator talking about his wife. She's had a hard life and she'll be with him forever waiting for death to get to heaven. The guy always ignores her requests with the same excuses. She grows a second skin, cuts herself off from him. Shes emotionally scarred
