There's something acting on this body
Something goes in when nothing comes out
And someone's acting on this information
But nothing's registered from this location
From this site that I sense that I am, in asking
What is this burning in my eye?
What is this burning in my eye?
What is this burning in my eyes?
What is this burning in my eyes?

I wanted a language of my own
My lips were sucked empty and I mouthed the lines
Of this crowd that surrounds me
Punctured and parceled I fold my hand
To this site that I sense that I am, in asking
What is this burning in my eye?
What is this burning in my eye?
What is this burning in my eyes?
What is this burning in my eyes?

There's something acting but it doesn't complete
Don't you know what I mean?

There's something burning in my eye
There's something burning in my eye
There's something burning in my eyes
There's something burning in my eyes

    General Commenti know this sounds crazy but i think this might be about the secret drug experiments the cia conducted during the cold war on mostly black americans who totally lost their minds as a result, i definetly think it's about drugs, any ideas out there?

    General Commentyeah, definitely has to do with drugs. probably about experiencing the drug and realizing you don't know what you're doing and don't know what's happening to you

    General CommentI get the idea that it's another song about being a consumer/user and not having either a giving personality or any creative outlet and trying to fit in with a crowd and adopting their culture - the way they speak, dress, the things that anger them, etc without consciously knowing that you're doing it.
