"Eye" as written by Gavin Richard Harrison and Ricardo A. Byer....
I lie I wait I stop I hesitate I am.
I see I melt I think of me.
Is it any wonder I can't sleep.
All I have is all you gave to me.
IS it any wonder I found peace.
Through you.

Turn to the gates of heaven turn myself around(around).
Turn away from I.
Its not enough.
Just a touch. It's not enough.
I taste.

I Love I can I bleed I love
I hate I'm now I was I want too much
Is it any wonder I can't sleep, all
Have is all yo gave to me is it any wonder I found peace.

Through you. Turn to the gates of heaven to myself be damned turn away from I.
It's not enough. Just a touch. It's not enough.

Just a touch. Its not enough. Just a touch.
It's not enough. Just a touch. Its not enough. Just a touch. Its not enough.
Just a touch...

    General CommentI like the ideas people are throwing around but I don't think its about a girl. I think it's about god (im an atheist so dont worry about me getting all religiousy about it ha). But the line "Just a touch, it's not enough" and "Is it any wonder I found peace though you?" immediately draw my mind to the subject of god. The just a touch part makes me picture the famous painting of god touching whoevers firgers and Billy kinda saying its not enough, I know it's way out there but it seems like Billys kinda saying god doesn't do enough for humanity or whatever.

    General Commentyer this is from the film lost highway, excellent film-another David Lynch masterpiece. great sound track also.
    to rockstar001:_ I think this song is about more than just someone wanting more than sex, its saying im empty cos i live through you and everything you do is who iam. Its saying your my life and i need every part of you to fill my desire and even then it wont be enough.
    this is so from a guys point of view i would say, foreverYoung is actually right, girls use guys, +Alot more than guys use girls, except for early teens mayb.
    girls are so fickle, generally speaking that is;
    im holding my breath till I find out im wrong.

    General CommentI wonder because the songs name is eye maybe it was suppose to be thought of as "eye lie, eye wait, eye stop...... and so on and so on. representing people and how selfish they are and the materialistic lifestyles that people live.im proabaly wrong, but it sounded cool when i replaced eye every time I came up.Im open for other ideas.

    General CommentI've always wondered: was this song written for a soundtrack to a movie? And if so, which? Because I really have no clue unless they just decided to release it on its own instead of putting it on Adore.

    General CommentPunkie, in reference to the naming of Corgan's songs...

    "Say you write a song about a chandelier, and the chandelier gives off light. And the light is the color red and red reminds you of the color your not supposed to wear around a bull. So you name the song 'Cow.' " - Billy Corgan

    as you see, he doesn't usually just take a word from the song and put it in the name's place. Sorry.

    General CommentI think that explains some of the names to Pumpkins' songs. Thanks for posting it, where did you get it?
