Would anyone happen to have some sort of idea of the lyrics to Blindinoneeye, from Foggy Notions #96, Morr music compilation? I've only been able to pick up bits and pieces, but Ben always has had such wonderful lyrics I want to know what they are.

Hopefully this isn't too old of a post for you, but here's what I've got for the lyrics: Blind in one eye, we learned about love from the movies The seeds were sown by the first one to fall Who we dribbled on our way to gather scraps from all the dinner tables Everything they have ever wanted lives inside their heads But their mouths are broken records, we've gotten sick of listening Living, loving, dying everyone will save their own But sadly no one took the fall, the seeds were never sown So it's onward and upward on the glittering wings of hope The rest of them are looking up and wishing that we'd choke And the other side is negligent, 'cause there will always be us and them The firing line is moving with time, so check your head for target signs In the cycle of things we're just avoiding the wheels So they lined us up like porches who have something to steal from And now we know the score because it's painted on our eyelids, and we lost So we're packing our bags and waving 'bye' from our cabs And it's widely thought of as healing, but we're picking at the scabs If I screw it up and the foundation crumbles they'll probably jot it down as luck Page turns and we look like kids With curses in our mouths and our middle finger's sticking up And everything is simple 'til we place our bids And learn about the other side and end up with our tongues in knots And then the page turns and we look like them With pencils in our pockets and our name tag's nice and shiny And our faces are in place and our lines are rehearsed But who are we to point the finger just because we fell off first? A handful of bones and you're a connoisseur of handshakes With wandering eyes, and dollar-signs for pupils Such a lovely machine, she has such elegant hands She'll reach inside and pluck your spinal cord until you do her bidding And they equate it to a flower blooming A rose inside your chest, only the petals are razors And the saddest part is knowing it'll happen to me too The ticket no one wants to hold is stapled to my palm [unknown whispered verse] Your hands are dirty but your conscience is clean I've learned to fear the ones with strong heads and broken hearts I've seen the future, I don't know what it means And it won't solve things, but revenge is a good start Take what you will, I promise not to intervene Just please stop whispering, it's hurting my head I don't need sympathy, just somewhere to lean And an excuse to put a roof over my head The smarter the hen The better the hunt The quicker they fall The sooner we jump The harder we leave The faster they choke The stronger we pull The quicker they grope The harder we laugh The sooner they grin The quicker they trust The faster we win The more they complain The less we forgive And so on Page turns and we look like kids With curses in our mouths and our middle finger's sticking up And everything is simple 'til we place our bids And learn about the other side and end up with our tongues in knots And then the page turns and we look like them With pencils in our pockets and our name tag's nice and shiny And our faces are in place and our lines are rehearsed But who are we to point the finger just because we fell off first?
