“I’m all out of hope
One more bad dream could bring a fall?
When I’m far from home
Don’t call me on the phone
To tell me you’re alone
It’s easy to deceive
It’s easy to tease
But hard to get release
Eyes without a face (les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face, got no human grace your eyes without a face
I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you
Eyes without a face (les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face, got no human grace your eyes without a face
When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else’s pocket then make a slip
Steal a car and go to las vegas oh, the gigolo pool
Hanging out by the state line, turning holy water into wine
Drinkin’ it down
I’m on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin’ to stay hip
I’m thinkin’ of you you’re out there so
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don’t despise
Now all I can do
Love what was once
So alive and new
But it’s gone from your eyes
I’d better realize
Eyes without a face (les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face, got no human grace your eyes without a face
Such a human waste your eyes without a face
And now it’s getting worse”
