"Evil Eye" as written by and Christopher Mark/robinson Robinson....
There wasn't a thing to say
As we drove past to the desert way
Through silent seas of sand
Feel time running through my hands
And the sun is burning bright
And the air says life is tight
And my brain says that someone dies
When she shows me the endless lies

[Chorus:]
And if you're asking why
She said look into the evil eye again
And if you're asking why
She said look into the evil eye again

When are you coming down?
Yes the world you see
Is spinning round
Days are short and lost and found
And the night is long
At the burial ground

It's all the same
It's all for nothing?

It's all to blame
It's all for nothing

In my mind the day is dry
The car of chrome reflects the sky
When she flies all I know my insides hear me cry

Skulls can grin
Vultures spin
Engines whirl
Life begins
Snakes to skin
Blood to drink
And all I know is life begins

It's all the same
It's all for nothing

It's all to blame
It's all for nothing

It's all the same
It's all for nothing

It's all to blame
It's all for nothing

We stood on the ancient bones
With our sacrifice we atoned

For a world now lost in stone
Please come alive for us alone

There wasn't a thing to say
As we drove past to the desert way
Through silent seas of sand
Feel time running through my hands

    General CommentWhat? No comments on this song??? This song is so awesome! Here's my take on it.

    In the literal sense, he's going to a secret place with a wise woman to attend a "strange" ritual to ask the spirits for help with something.

    In the metaphorical sense, I think it's about how his music career was DEAD for almost two decades, and now, with the help of parties unnamed, he's reviving it. This song is on his Devil's Playground album, which, to his dedicated fans, was practically the second coming of Christ.

    General CommentThis song is fucking awesome.

    in my opinion its a song about experience, probably one on drugs.

    Hes describing a time, probably riding in a car, it was hot, he was with a girl, they wernt talking. the destination was the most important thing. Then they get there are have an amazing experience that connects them and makes them wonder at the grandeur of life.

    The evil eye is knowledge.
