Lying eyes

video
say you wanna help as your clothes fall to the floor
holding out your hand, twenty dollar bills to settle the score
standing on the corner, hoping no one comes your way
cars flying by every one of them call your name

lying eyes, only wanna take what you cant lose
lying eyes only wanna take what you don't have

Jesus don't you know, all the sin you send my way
whats a matter Christ cant you part those waves today
my cup is broken , it doesn't runnith over no more
 my feet are bleeding, got nothing to do with a holey war

lying eyes, only wanna take what you cant lose
lying eyes only wanna take what you don't have

needle in my vein, lord i feel like I'm already gone
hey my good sir got any food in the trash today
down on my knees, gonna be a dreary dreary day
searching in the dark, gotta find a place for my head to lay

lying eyes, only wanna take what you cant lose
lying eyes only wanna take what you don't have
