Black Eyes

  • Lyrics
  • Gallows vocalist Frank Carter explained this song to Kerrang! April 18, 2009: "I had this weird idea about politicians and liars, and how when they told conscious lies, their eyes would bleed black. It would make the world a much safer place. It amazes me that a man like Tony Blair could take our country to war, and not be afraid of the fact that every single person in the country knew where he lived."
