Lyrics

Stained Glass Eye © 2020 Brian Kaplan

You’re never there whenever you are here
It’s a magic trick
Some sort of illusionary game
Where the joker throws his cards
Though a better hand
And I’m seeing things in a different light
I’m looking through a lampshade of hues
I’ve never known before
So I study them with my one good
stained glass eye.
I’m begging you things have got to change,
Things have go to change
You can’t tell me that you’ve got
No rhythm, boy
No rhythm, boy

Stop me please if you’ve heard this before
It’s an old joke’s punch line of focus
I’ve never had before
It’s easier to see the stars from the
Corners of your eyes.
Spaceship in the middle of my field
Please abduct me
Or leave me alone.

I’m begging you things have got to change
Things have got to change
You can’t tell me that you’ve got
No rhythm, boy
No rhythm, boy
You will awake some day
To find we’ve all gone
You will awake some day,
nothing but a shadow of your former self
You will awake some day,
Singing the same tired songs
And when you awake that day...

I’m moving on because the vendor of the Zen says,
“It’s not the end
But what you see along the way,”
It’s a wonder all the wonder’s
I still have not seen.
So stand up, take a hold of yourself and
Please release me
Although I know we’ll meet again.
I’m begging you things have got to change
Got to change
You can’t tell me that we’ve got
No rhythm, boy
No rhythm, boy

You will awake some day
To find we’ve all gone
You will awake some day
Nothing but a shadow of your former self
You will awake some day,
Singing the same tired songs
And when you awake that day...

You will awake some day
You will awake some day
You will awake some day
Singing the same tired songs
And when you awake that day
Nothing but a shadow of your former self.
