Billy Corgan – Thecameraeye lyrics

(Billy Corgan)

Listen, listen...
This is mark I cannot place
This is the wish I dare not leave
Time uncovers what is keeping still
I unaware move against my will

Simon says, "pass on by"
Passions wane, stragglers weep
Hungers fight for the camera eye

Hold me so
I'll never let you go
Stay with me for a while
(while I sleep)

Momma squeeze
Grace my spine
Walk on thru the camera eye

Listen, listen...
This is the name I cannot speak
This is the flame I dare not douse
Here, things are
We'll never get that far
Close enough to die a time or two or three

Stretch my skin
Restless gods
Maybe turn my heart of hearts
Deposit change in the camera eye

Who needs pain to survive?
I need pain to change my life
In gentle myths and turning leaves we all come to bury truth

Honey choose my wet dream
A naked soul just has to grieve
If I bleed, the camera cries
No one doubts the camera eye

Move fast forward thru the camera eye
Move fast forward thru the camera eye
The camera eye
