Closed doors brings open minds
(And I don't want to see you)

See you smile inside
(And I don't want to know you)

Faces and I've fallen
(And I don't want to hear you)

Wonder why I'm here now
In asylum don't you see?
In asylum don't you see?

Doors close and feelings flow
Through my mind I feel his

Pictures and I've fallen
Wonder why I'm here now

Curse your soul I don't wanna know you
(And I) curse your soul, I don't wanna know you
(And I) curse your soul, I don't wanna know you
(And I) curse your soul, I don't wanna know you

    completely wrong. the lyrics are actually

    closed doors brings open minds {and i don't want to see you}

    see you smile, inside {and i don't want to know you}

    faces, and i've fallen {and i don't want to hear you}

    wonder why i'm here now in asylum, don't you see? in asylum don't you see

    doors close and feelings flow {and i don't want to know you}

    through my mind i feel his... {and i don't want to hear you}

    pictures and i've fallen {and i don't wanna know you}

    wonder why im here now {i promise to be near you}

    curse your soul, i don't wanna know you and i, curse your soul i don't wanna know you...

    FUCKING AMAZING. i swear it is as if they lightly tossed a distorted guitar into a space time con·tin·u·um. or just in a spaceship built for you and your best friend.

    Uma pessoa que persegue seus sonhos e pensamentos e por mais que a sensação por ela seja agradável, não quer encontra-la

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.
