"Mr. Pink Eyes" as written by Robert James Smith and Laurence Andrew Tolhurst....
You look so cool, oh, I don't think
Just fall over be like me
Mr. Pink eyes, Mr. Pink eyes

Your own mind is blank and mine's away
You can't see oh, you can't see
You can't smell, Mr. Pink eyes

It's got to be jazz, that's what she wants
You are so vile, Mr. Pink eyes

Oh give me a look, give me a look
Or sit on my head, or jump on my foot
Do something, oh

One, two, three

You look so cool, oh, I don't think
Oh, just fall over be like me
Mr. Pink eyes, [Incomprehensible]
Oh, you're lovely [Incomprehensible]

    General CommentYea, it's about Smith looking in the mirror, and realisng he's been hammering the drugs a bit too hard - hence his eyes are bloodshot.

    I think on a deeper level its a reflection on his lifestyle, and the dammage he was doing himself at the time.

    Its got that ambiguos, perky delivery that makes the dark content of the Cure's lyrics all the more resonant.

    General CommentI never noticed it before, but perhaps this is the one and only Cure gospel song. Just makes me think of those churches where everyone is up in the air and stomping their feet. The lyrics don't seem gospel-like, but does anyone else agree?
