Shield Your Eyes
Bivouac LP/CD, Etc. 2xLP/CD, The World's in Shreds Volume Two compilation 7"

There was a sun once.
It lit the whole damn sky.
It kept everything,
everything alive.
And there was a man once.
He looked it straight in the eye.
He saw everything.
Everything. He went blind.

The truth burns bright.
There's too much there sometimes.
The sun it shows, the sun it blinds.
Best to keep your eyes.
Stare at the sidewalk lines.
Let lies lie, don't let them shine.

The blind man staggers.
And he grabs at his eyes.
He can't do anything.
Everything is a lie.
Now he sits around.
And he stares at the walls.
He can't do anything,
anything at all.

The truth burns bright.
There's too much there sometimes.
The sun it shows, the sun it blinds.
Best to keep your eyes.
Stare at the sidewalk lines.
Let lies lie, don't let them shine.

Shield your eyes from all this misery.
Come along. Come along.



Note: In pre-Bivouac versions, the band repeats the first verse after the instrumental section found on the LP version. Additionally, "Come along. Come along." is extended to "Come along. You can hide here with me."
