  • Lyrics
  • Time, time and again I see you staring down at me
    Now, then and again I wonder what it is that you see
    With those angry eyes
    Well, I bet you wish you could cut me down
    With those angry eyes

    You want to believe that I am not the same as you
    And now I can't conceive, oh lord, of what it is you're trying to do
    With those angry eyes
    Well, I bet you wish you could cut me down
    With those angry eyes
    What a shot you could be if you could shoot at me
    With those angry eyes

    You and I must start to realize
    Blindness binds us in a false disguise
    Can you see me through those angry eyes?

    You try to defend that you are not the one to blame
    But I'm finding it hard, my friend, when I 'm in the deadly aim
    Of those angry eyes
    Well, I bet you wish you could cut me down
    With those angry eyes
    What a shot you could be if you could shoot at me
