"Black-Eyed" as written by Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal and Steven Hewitt....
I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Borderline and skitzo
And guaranteed to cause a fuss

I was never loyal
Except to my own pleasure zone
I'm forever black-eyed
A product of a broken home

I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Borderline by polar
Forever biting your nuts

I was never grateful
That's why I spent my days alone
I'm forever black-eyed
A product of a broken home
Broken home

Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed

I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Borderline and skitzo
And guaranteed to cause a fuss

I was never loyal
Except to my own pleasure zone
I'm forever black-eyed
A product of a broken home
Broken home

Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Broken home
Black-eyed
Broken home
Black-eyed
Broken home
Black-eyed
Broken home
Black-eyed

    General CommentI read that Brian Molko said this song means something along the lines of the fact that everybody was going to think it was about him, but actually it was him mocking people who blamed all their problems on their parents and/or unhappy childhood (product of a broken home). He thought people should aslo take responsibility for their lives instead of blaming failures etc on other people. Hope that helps..

    General CommentThe lyrics are right and the song is obviously about having bordeline personality disorder.

    Borderline symptoms are really similar to bipolar and schizofrenic ones.
    They're not really reliable or faithful to a relationship and are extremely aggressive. They don't care if other people are hurt by their actions, but nobody has the right to hurt them back or abandon them. They hate being alone, but always end up that way. And the most common cause for this disorder is a childhood trauma a.k.a having a broke home.

    General Commenti guess this is how everybody feels about themselves sometimes. Even the most sucessful and clever people do. when you do stupid things, the person you have to work hardest for forgiveness from is yourself, and i think this is what the song shows. this song also shows the acceptance of the stupidity in this world.

    General CommentI am finding it very interesting to read all of these comments because I saw the song so differently. To me being blackeyed represents taking drugs. Like, when you have a pill and the pupils of your eyes go very large, nearly covering the coloured part of your eye. Although I know not all drugs do that to you, that is what it reminds me of. I have always thought that this song is about a troubled person who has encountered a rough life, and deals with it by taking a lot of drugs.

    General CommentI'm not too clear on what i feel that this song is about, because i have many views on what the lyrics mean to me, however i think that "blackeyed" doesn't mean having a blackeye as a result from a fight, i think that it's more to do with crying, because when you cry ur makeup runs around your eyes, i'm probably completely wrong, just what i think tho :) XxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx

    General Commentmaybe it makes a scene; a bisexual kid who is ridiculed and placed under those stereotypes and therefore blames his sexuality on his upbringing or his parents or anything. I think heideroosie really has this down, and must've put time into this or looked it up. I trust that interpretation.

    General CommentIt's exactly what palefaced said it's about. The title itself gives it away as "teenage angst" has always had the connotation of being frivolous angst. And with regaurds to the "Borderline bipolar" and "Borderlining schizo" bits- that's the blow at all the kids who running around thinking they have some mental illness and wearing their hypochondriac induced mental illnesses like a badge and changing it every other week. One can't say "Oh, I'm schitzophrenic and bipolar" because they're two *completley* different diseases, lol.
