"Blue Eyes" as written by and William C Handy....
You terrify the land
You are pestle and mortar
Your first love's New Order
Mother Nature's Son
King of the Everglades
Population: one
I write poetry for myself
I write poetry for myself

(Oh, baby)
Ooh
Ooh

You're a permanent figure of jacked up sorrow
I want you to love me
You send me a coffin of roses
I guess that's the way that things go these days
Take pills, for instance
I heard they're no good for you
I won't and I never will
She said, "I won't and I never will"
"I won't and I never will"
"I won't and I never will"
"I won't and I never will"
Blue eyes
Ooh, blue eyes

Oh, baby, can't you see they had it in for me?
They had it in for me, they had it in for me
Oh, baby, can't you see ("I won't and I never will")
They had it in for me? They had it in for me
Blue eyes
Ooh, ooh baby, you got those blue eyes

I sent a message in a bottle to the press
It said, "don't be ashamed or disgusted with yourselves"
"Don't be ashamed or disgusted with yourselves"
"Don't be ashamed or disgusted with yourselves"
I thumb through the books on your shelves
I've thumbed through the books on your shelves
I've thumbed through the books on your shelves
I've thumbed through the books on your shelves

Blue eyes

    General CommentI think Pitchfork got this one completely wrong.
    This is layered song for sure but as far as the bottled message to the press is concerned I hear it as a sincere (if somewhat complicated) feeling of forgiveness, not a "funny put-down" << Pitchfork.
    P4k is so odd sometimes. Do they get this record or don't they? Do they really appreciate the "essential complexity" of Bejar's music or are they just being placating?
    OK I'm just pissed that somehow this is 1.2 points short of the PERFECTION achieved by Kanye.
    I know, fuck pitchfork. But ARRRGH this record is SOOOO GOOOOD
