In the Eye of the Beholder

                       how was i supposed to see that?
            you didn't give me my 3D glasses so I couldn't see it
        it was my single vision that led me to believe I wasn't blind
   my single vision had me thinking I wasn't missing things when blinking
               but I could smell this stinking, rotten stench
                       and it wouldn't let me sleep

     it made the pit of my stomach ache and shook my nerves like a quake
                       and when I looked into the sky
                          acid rain filled my eyes
                            and scalded my vision
            and caffene highs still didn't give me the energy to
                                 see clearly

                        now the rain is gone.......
             and the sirens are warning me about hurricane pain
                         and damn, it's a category 4
         does that mean some catastrophic shit is about to go down?

                 do you think if I close my eyes real tight
           and brace myself, the eye of the storm will pass me by?
                         maybe if I cross my fingers
                   and whisper repeatedly rapid chants of
                                "let it pass"
                            do you think it will?

                  I gave you an altar and called you my God
                         I worshipped your footsteps
                              gave you my love
                              gave you my soul
                              gave you my heart
                                 gave you me
                                 gave you me

                       and now I'm losing my religion

                        all this time I couldn't see
                        but now all I can do is watch
                         while you crucify my dreams
                       steaks pounded through my heart
              sink in deeper as each lie bitch-slaps the truth
                           and hits me like stones
           and i'm lookin at you watching me from your glass house
               yellin' out my flaws loud enough for me to hear
                but low enough so that echos won't cause that
                    avalanche over your see through crib
                            to come tumbling down

            but if I can build up enough strength to do anything
              I will make sure that my pain echoes in your head
                      exploding loudly inside your mind
                          causing migrane thoughts
                    making you chant repeatedly, rapidly
                           "make this shit stop!!"
           scream that shit loud, so that the avalanche will crush
                            those walls that lie
                   then I'll watch your bloodstained tears
                              blurr your vision
         and toss you a towel so you can wipe away enough of my love
                             to see me walk away
