about

The Glass Eyes Chicago, Illinois

Anti-love. Immodest. Not carefree. A bit of an elitist. Has an alienating sense of humor. Generally anxious. Tough to understand sometimes. Hard to read. Sporadic bouts of kindness separated by long droughts. Suffers from this seemingly sourceless sense of shame. But hey! This music's really good! Those dudes can play! That song sounded like Neil Young! ... more

Track Name: The Sea
How bout a nice theme
For this friendly tune
Nothin about me
Sick of talking about you

Dude's watching the trees
Sun roofing in June
Getting closer to the sea
Hey there's a canyon too

Yeah it feels pretty cool
Got Bell & Alex on
Nobody's coming around
So feel the love everywhere
Track Name: Call It What It Is
Hey I want to
Hey I want to
Hey I want to
Hey

I'm ok
Hey I'm ok
Hey I'm ok
Hey I want to
Hey don't leave me
Hey I want to

Why can't you just call it what it is
Why don't you just call it what it is
Would you just call it what it is
Track Name: Something
There's something on the subway
There's something that couldn't be
I'm old enough to know now
I'm young enough to walk away
There's something on the subway
There' something that couldn't be
Track Name: Bike Tour
Bike tour meeting in the lobby and the first confirmed thought I had about her besides liking the way her body looked was um well she didn't really speak like she was French, and there was some confusion I had via my eavesdropping like she lives in Switzerland or is from Switzerland and lives in France or. But her hair was slightly darkened blonde and she was really pretty all over. I guess there's like a French woman archetype, she fell into that. It was about enough to knock me over or kill me or whatever. When I got a chance to look closer at her face from an angle that was kind of behind her I was relieved to see a slightly odd angle to her nose, maybe, or some part of it. I feel ashamed for using the word nerdy but there it is. Completely gorgeous but imperfect, perhaps imperfect enough to like someone like me.

We're riding and some time goes by, and eventually we get pretty near again, I'm asking her some standard kind of questions, and she's in environmental engineering and yada yada. And there's some kind of tone in her voice which I'm enjoying and we're riding close and pretty slow and in synch, and I can get really near to her, to hear her better, and it feels good. And it's around that time I feel like I should tell her I that I think she's really pretty and I like her and then we could go frolick in the grass and make out or something but I don't.

And some time goes by and everything in my head starts sounding really mathy. Like I'm trying to solve an equation or something except it's a person who I like and it doesn't feel right. And it's turning and I'm feeling down. And I realize I'm exactly the same over here as I am back there.
Track Name: Another Word
You know I love you's just another word for whatever
You know I love you's just another word for whatever
You know I love you's just another word
Well I don't ever want another word
You know I love you's just another word for whatever

You know your world is just another world oh whatever
You know your world is just another world oh whatever
You know your world is just another world
Hey girl the world is just another world
Well I don't ever want another world oh whatever

Hey girl your clothes are just another word oh whatever
Hey girl your clothes are just another word oh whatever
Hey girl your clothes are just another word
Well I don't ever want another word
You know your clothing's just another word oh whatever
Track Name: Wounded Like I Was
You're wounded like I was
You're looking for a feeling a reason you shouldn't be lying alone
Nah they can't love you
They could if you were a little bit more like you've always wanted to be
I shrugged whatever
Ain't like it keeps happening over over over over again

Your conversations
They're all gone forever like everyone you've ever wanted before
But what could we do
But get hurt from trying over over over over again
I shrug whatever
Each time when it happens over over over over again
Track Name: I Don't Want You To Die
In the field benign
I walked around got high

I feel alright inside
But I'm sick of all this time

I don't want you
I don't want you to die
