Part 1 - Look Us In The Eye

It's a foolish man that tampers with a rifle,
And points the barrel straight at his own head.
There's a line of fools, who sign up, like dumb cattle,
And follow their own leaders to their deaths.

There's a heart that's waiting lone on some horizon.
It's the kind of thing you hear of everyday.
There's a swelling feeling part of every ocean.
We live with it, it guides us everyday.

Look us all in the eye,
Try telling the truth and the reason why
Look us all in the eye,
You might be surprised, look us in the eye...

On a cold December night a child is crying,
In a cardboard box on some abandon lot.
On a barren stretch of land a child is waiting,
Holding out his hand for what he hasn't got.

While a hundred men sit idle 'round a table,
Talking nonsense to the ones they represent.
They give credence to all suicidal doctrine.
No one ever knows exactly what they meant.

Look us all in the eye,
Try telling the truth and the reason why
Look us all in the eye,
You might be surprised, look us in the eye...

Part 2 - Blind - Instrumental

Part 3 - Through The Eye

You hear it on the news,
And you see it on the streets.
Everywhere you look it lingers,
Down as far as you can see.

It's a never-ending battle,
This one's right when this one's wrong.
You can hold yourself closely,
But you'll lose it before too long.
Daddy when you comin' home?
You know I'll never walk alone.

When I try to look away,
I'm pulled in by vibrant darkness.
Their cold, sheltered gaze surrounds me,
In the still of the town

And it should be right here by my side,
I'll find it one way or the next.
When I do it won't confine me,
Though I'll lose it like the rest.

You know I'll never walk alone,
And Daddy, when you comin' home?
