eye for an eye

lyrics and music by Nathan Davis

Don't tell me to smile;
You say I'm ugly when I frown.
That's why I'm ugly everytime I come back to this town.
My thoughts were fading out
When my bottle hit the ground;
I'm sober now, but I was happier when I was falling down.
Don't tell me to be nice,
Because I'm bleeding from my eyes.
I'm seeing red, but I've only cried blood once or twice.

They say an eye for an eye leaves both eyes blind.
We run into each other in the darkness of our selfish minds;
And I just sit here waiting for the moon to give me back my sight
On her side of the bed tonight.

I don't think I know sleep;
I haven't talked to him in days.
He doesn't come around much anymore,
And when he does I make him go away.
Don't underestimate the power of the human mind;
It's funny when the thing you've lost is this damn hard to find.
Don't tell me to calm down;
Don't tell me to count to ten.
I'm doing better sitting by myself in pieces,
Than I was when I was dressed in sin.

They say an eye for an eye leaves both eyes blind.
We run into each other in the darkness of our selfish minds;
And I keep reaching for her, but there's no one there to hold me tight
On her side of the bed tonight.

Don't tell me I'm fine, I can hear the curtain call.
My favorite cliché: Into every life a little rain must fall.
And don't just walk away because that's what I did one day,
And now it's got me smoking sorrow
on her side of the bed where I lay.
It's just an eye for an eye...

How about a little regret...one of those days where you wake up and everything is wrong, everybody sucks, every limb hurts, and you just want to jump off of something tall.
