The Lyrics

I must use a sure ploy
Knew my eyes were omen cold
I must give up my persistence to a posit full of mumbles
They are nemesis.
All lies and jest
Irony - yes, they hear what they want and laugh at all the rest.
Hmmm....

Lest I 'pear I don't give a damn, you see,
'Twas no chore to use a ploy.
Midst the company of dangers,
In the riots I have known here, gave a shunning glare.
Give a show...
Speak your answers somewhat shorter,
And you laugh a little mo'.
Lookin' at the faces,
Seein' if they know.

Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie
Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie - la la la they lie

Masking all my unplanned edges
I am looking at that slob.
But some wit was offered
Just a play on words and the leaven so continues.
I am aware
There were crimes to which I might succumb.
I look and I still I dare.
La la la...

Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie
Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie - la la la they lie

Then I'm going where I'm told to go
So willing I would fawn.
It's some home!
Where "due-to-me-pity" winners,
Aren't leading me
Needing me! I do roam.

He does sneering, I'm the mocker
And a fighter I've been made.
And I bury all the blinders
Of ev'ry shove that got her down,
And cuffed her till she hid out.
In her anger placed that blame,
I am grieving, yes I'm grieving.
But this fighter still remains.
Hm..

Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie
Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie - la la la they lie

Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie
Eyes they lie - eyes la la la la they lie - la la la they lie

Why do you resist the exquisite call of your more unrefined, sea-going inner-self, Sir Robinson? It is only when I suffer from these attacks of graceful linguistic lucidity, such as that which I am experiencing at this very moment, that my own inner pirate fails to-----aaaaaaaAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!

(SOTM) Confused and disoriented 5's. They may get lost in the shuffle, but they will find their way if you are patient.
Arwen - May 01, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM--I'm with Tim...a bit confused...but that may be because it's way past my bed time and I am compelled to read all of these before my time runs out! I can't fully say that I know what or who this song is about...but, I'm a Mocker myself...so, I have to at least give you credit for a great title...; )

Red Ant - September 07, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC05) I finally know TOS well now. 555 here, though the version I have has roughly 5 choruses of "Lie lie lie..." at the end. Does everyone shorten that or do I have some extended version of the song (it's the Greatest Hits vinyl I believe)?
Adagio - September 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, Red Ant! I got my copy off internet lyrics. Sometimes those even vary, according to how well they know the individual songs. Sometimes I use both the actual songs and then check it with lyrics I find on the net, because that's the version people will expect. The actual song is very helpful in deciding how individual words are sung....where they put the emphasis.
