Wallflower – Hungry Eyes Lyrics

Hungry Eyes By Wallflower

We said we’d drawn the last line, we made all our intentions clear.
What better time than now? What better place to die than here?

But I’m not giving this up.

Hungry eyes surround me, they’re starving.
They feed on your insides. No warning, it’s happening.

The sheep caught out in the landslide, they suffocate themselves in fear.
But when the wolves are thirsty, the herd serve them up their blood and tears.

But I’m not sipping from that cup.

Hungry eyes surround me, they’re starving.
They feed on your insides. No warning, it’s happening.
Feeding lies; they deceive from the tree.
The fruit’s been cast aside. They’re planting seeds in your mind.

The paradise they promised you has withered away.
The borders that set us back get stronger every day.

And if they lead our humanity astray, then I hope that I don’t have to live long enough to see their masochistic ways.
Lock me up and throw away the key.
Pack my bags I’m ready to leave
