Dead red eyes flickering half bright went on for ride (?)
In slick silk. They were on to my circumstantial slide,
Blow by blow chipped off shell and bone. Tripped and talked around
It could not fall through the crowd of careful lies busting open wide.
Sensible fact of favor, watch dust fall from your favor. (?)
Since you knew too much about it dressed in wax you lit the town in
Candlelight, flickering half bright. Well I held it in my hands and now it's
Gone gone gone.
Saw it with my own two eyes, just pass me by.

Took a walk through a town of half stoned _(found?)_______
Bound and gagging. Joke by joke they spot erase you,
Heard their news but it did not faze you one little bit,
Not one little bit. So I meet you by the light of main street
Stranded ghosts where I've been waiting. Kill it 50 times or more,
Before I'm through I'll kill it 50 times more, just to bring it back to life,
And bust it open wide again. Well I held it in my hands and now it's
Gone gone gone.
Blinded by the neon in your dead red eyes.

    General CommentDead, red eyes - flickering half bright
    Went on for a ride in slick silk
    They were onto my circumstantial slide
    Blow by blow, chip off shell and bone
    Trip and talked around it
    Could not fall through a crowd of
    Careful lies busting open wide
    Sensible, fact or fable
    Watched us fall from your favor
    Since you knew too much about it
    Dressed in wax, you lit the town in
    Candle light, flickering half bright
    Well, I held it in my hands
    And now it's gone, gone, gone
    Saw it with my own two eyes, just pass me by

    Took a walk, through a town of half-stoned
    Cold, bound and gagging
    Joke, by joke, they spot erase you
    Heard their news, but it did not phase you
    One little bit, not one little bit
    So I meet you by the light of main street
    Stranded ghosts where I've been waiting
    Kill it fifty times or more
    Before I'm through, I'll kill it fifty times more
    Just to bring it back to life
    And bust it open wide again
    Well, I held it in my hands
    And nwo it's gone, gone, gone
    Blinded by the neon in your dead, red eyes
