LYRICS: Andrew Bird

“Eyeoneye”

I think this is one of those tracks where the music and melody are at the forefront of the listening experience. They were for me at least. It took me dozens of listens to REALLY pay attention the the lyrics of this song and when I did, they really struck me…

“Go ahead and congratulate yourself
Give yourself a hand, the hand is yours
When the eye that eyes itself is your eye
And the ear that hears itself is too
And you’re getting too close
You’re getting too close
You’re getting too close to your source

You’ve done the impossible now
Took yourself apart
Made yourself invulnerable
No one can break your heart
So you break it yourself

Bringing your own, break it yourself…

Go ahead and re-ionize yourself
Give yourself a hand, the hand is yours
And you go ahead and wring it out
Go ahead and stretch it out
Go ahead and wear it inside out”

Andrew Bird
