Corrosion of Conformity

“Mine Are The Eyes of God” by Corrosion of Conformity.

Words by Agell/Keenan and music by Corrosion of Conformity. © 1991 Corrosive Music/BMI.
Thanks to J. Lewis for the song suggestion.

Taught to believe from the onset, of heaven and hell and between
The institution’s retribution–damnation from on high
Living and dying together never did nothing at all
Except for the few who got rich off of you
And the rest, they were herded like sheep

(chorus)
Mine are the eyes of god
And what they see is not what was meant to be
Mine are the eyes of god mine are the eyes
Mine are the eyes of god

Down the road to betrayal of values they held to be true
An aberration, deviation to get to the spirit of life
The whole goddamn world is riding on words for thousands of years
It’s just like the west to think it knows best
When answers are subject to change

(chorus)

They took what could have been
And turned it upside down
They twisted all things seen
What’s lost must now be found
I got to see it
Got to believe it
I got to be there

Given the power of reason, yet throwing it all to the wind
No solution in evolution–only the blood-stained glass
A soul full of lies in contention, begs sacred, yet worships profane
Lose sight of the fact that you’re where it’s at
Not the stars, not the cross, nor the moon

(chorus)
