  • Don't look, just keep your eyes peeled
    Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
    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 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'll never believe
    I play 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

    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 Writer/s: Dean Anthony Fertita, Josh Homme, Joshua Michael Homme, Michael Jay Shuman, Troy Dean Van Leeuwen
