One Eye Open

by Headless Relatives

/

about

A track wherein the narrator is the inner voices that sometimes try to help, but often end up doing more harm than good.

lyrics

Be ever vigilant
Be ever alert
Lest a stray remark
Cause somebody hurt

Try always
To think before you speak
Lest something toxic
Accidentally leak

Sleep with one eye open
Never really rest
Try to play your emotions
Close to your chest

Remember things you said
When you were a child
The guilt still surges
Running wild

Anything kind or good
That you've ever done
Is always outweighed
In the final sums

Sleep with one eye open
Never really rest
Try to play your emotions
Close to your chest

Nothing beautiful
Will ever stay
You always do something
To drive it away

Seek companionship
But know the effort is doomed
Cause of death apparent
When relationships are exhumed

Sleep with one eye open
Never really rest
Try to play your emotions
Close to your chest
Sleep with one eye open
A useless scout
The enemy's inside already
Looking out
