  • This is my good eye
    Do you hear a cow?
    A rooster says
    Here is a pig
    The devil says

    Painted blue across my eyes
    And tied the linen on
    And I'm on my way
    Looking for the paradigm
    So I can pass it off
    Is it on my side, on my side

    Is to the sky, is to the sky, is to the sky now
    Searching for the ground with my good eye closed

    If I took you for a ride, would you take it wrong?
    Or would you make it right, make it right?
    Looking for a pedestal that I can put you on
    And be on my way, on my way

    Is to the sky, is to the sky, is to the sky now
    Searching for a ground with my good eye closed

    With my good eye closed

    Stop you're trying to bruise my mind
    I can do it on my own
    Stop you're trying to kill my time
    It's been my death since I was born
    I don't remember half the time if I'm hiding or I'm lost
    But I'm on my way, on my way

    (Is it to the sky?)
    (I'm on my way) to the sky
    (I'm on my way) to the sky
    (I'm on my way) to the sky
    (I'm on my way) to the sky
    I'm on my way (to the sky)
    To the sky
    To the sky
    On my way
    On my way
    Is it to the sky?
    Is it to the sky Writer/s: CHRIS CORNELL
