Keep Your Eyes Peeled - Queens of the Stone Age

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

And I know you'll 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
I daydream until all the blue is gone

And I know you'll 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 doll churning
Eagerly alive
(Over & 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
