Keep Your Eyes Peeled

(music/lyrics: Joshua Homme /  Queens of the Stone Age)

Don't look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, traipsing my mind's field
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know you will never believe
I play this as though I'm alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up 

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone 

And I know you will never believe
I play this as though I'm alright
If life is but a dream
Wake me 

Underwater is another life
Disregarding every myth we write
Rag dolls churning
Over and over, gasping in horror
So breathless you surface
Just as the next wave is

 Big smile, really a show of teeth
Without a care in a world of fear
Lonely, you don't know how I feel
Praise God, nothing is as it seems
