Jesus Eyes

by Tommy Von



Single from the album "Ancient Cosmic Cult"


I live in a dream
It's so cold in the wasteland
And I'm far from my home
And I'm living on bone, I could practically die
Come and crouch by my fire
You young hip roaming stranger
I could give you advice on these maggots and lice
And the streets they call home
There's no danger, there's no danger
When you're living a lie
You can up and change your mind
Call the sky cherry pie and you're living a lie with me
So let me tell you a little story
About criminals in the city
They have Jesus eyes and flaming hair
And they never get away
Don't misplace her, don't misplace her
She could help you a lot
When you're in a fix like this
Get her score when she screams and you're living the teen dream
So let me tell you a little story
About a boy and a girl in the city
They had Jesus eyes and flaming hair
And they never got away
No you can't get away
It's not enough that you're trying
This shit's quicker than sand
And it welds to your hands in a permanent sense
Who will weep for your passing?
All ya did was use air
We're all born in a home but we all die alone
So who needs a goodbye?
Jesus eyes and flaming hair
They had Jesus eyes
And flaming hair
