"20 Eyes" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
They're all the same, they're all the same

20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
They're all the same, they're all the same

When you're seeing 20 things at a time
You just can't slow things down, baby
When you're seeing 20 things in your mind
Just can't slow things down

Then all those eyes
They're just crowding up your human face
Then all those eyes
Take an overload

20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
They're all the same, they're all the same

When you're seeing 20 things at a time
You just can't slow things down, baby
When you're seeing 20 things in your mind
Just can't slow things down

Then all those eyes
They're just crowding up your human face
Then all those eyes
Take an overload

20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
20 Eyes in my head
They're all the same

20 Eyes in my head
They're all the same
20 eyes in my head
They're all the same
20 eyes in my head
They're all the same

    General CommentI belive this song is refering to the original "The Fly" Movie.
    Which any one that has seen the original knows that is one of the best films ever created.

    General CommentIt's possible that the idea behind this song came from the 1965 horror movie "The Eye Creature." A newer theory suggests that the song was influenced by a certain scene in the 1957 horror movie, "The Fly."

    General CommentHa i like the ADD thing since my attention spa's so..... uhm. what was i saying?

    And i know the original post is a year and a half old but technically it would be 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20 vision. The number refers only to what the viewers eye sees based on a standard of 20 feet when you se 20/20 it's refering to the viewers right/left eyes respectively without the standard of 20
    so say you can see at 45 feet what others see at 20 with your right eye but can only see the standard chart set at 20 feet away when you're 8 feet away with your left (i used that example cuse that's how my eyes see) your vision would be expressed as 8/45

    not that anyone cares

    General CommentAnd also, i'm sure The Fly and The Eye Monster are appropriate sources of inspiration for the song i have always felt that the song itself is about paranois, about being so overwhelmed with mistrust and a sense of impending doom or treachery that it interferes with having a normal life

    just my 2 cents
