"Minds Eye" as written by and John William Feldmann....
And if you could see me
The way that I am
Every time that I see you
I act like a different man

[Chorus]

I can see from my mind's eye
I make up scenarios in my head
I remember the things I did
I know I fucked up and I wish I was dead

What is it that scares me
What do I care what you think
Cause you only hurt me
And with your words I shrink

[Chorus]

If I could own you
You'd do what I'd say
You'd listen to me
You would
You'd do what I'd say
You'd fuckin' listen

And then when you call me
You act like nothing's wrong
Like I'm in a desert
What makes you so strong

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentTo me, this song represents that our knowledge of the world and everything in it is merely a function of our perceptions. The reality that each of has is independant and makes us all unique and can give us each confidence. Great song, great album.

    General CommentWow, I never did read that deep into it. I thought that this song just dwelled on the theme shown all throughout the self-titled album - severely damaged pride. I've always felt that "I remember the things I did. I know I fucked up, and I wish I was dead" was key information, coinciding real well with "If I'm sorry, does that mean I have to change?" and "I break down and call you 'cause I'm weak" and the whole deep regret of "Nothing to Prove". The perception thing never even occurred to me, in spite of the title Mind's Eye. Christ, I'm dumb sometimes.
