Billy Idol – Eyes Without A Face lyrics

I'm all out of hope
One more bad dream could bring a fall
When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive
It's easy to tease
But hard to get release

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip.
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas oh, the gigolo pool.
Hanging out behind the State Line.
Turning' Holy Water into Wine.
Bringing' it down, Ooo... Ow!
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip.
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.
Oh. Ow! Ow! Ow!

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Is love what was once
So alive and new
But it's gone from your eyes
I'd better realise

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.
Such a human waste your eyes without a face
And now it's getting worse.

    I agree. I can't believe how little people are seeing the heroin imagery. To me Eyes Without A Face could also be a play on track marks on the arms (eyes). The whole clip screams of drug fuelled debauchery and even withdrawal nightmares. It's a thinker. Or I'm just dead wrong haha.

    It's actually not that difficult to figure out the meaning of the song. It's about a relationship with a woman who is hooked on heroin and cheating, and he's expressing his outrage. In the video, it even shows a tourniquet being applied to someone's arm. Notice also that he doesn't blink once.

    The first verse shows that he's at his wit's end. The bad dreams are a result of either her highs or withdrawal. She calls and says she's alone, but he knows better.

    The second verse tells us that she had hidden her addiction from him for quite a while. He tries to make it work after finding out, but he can't.

    The bridge kinda speaks for itself again. She steals to get her fix. But, he's had all he can take, and is reading up on how to kill her.

    The last verse, she's dead. It's possible she isn't physically dead, but the bridge suggests otherwise. Either way, he expresses his sense of loss of the relationship they once had.

    Overall, he's trying to show how much he detests her for what she's done. If he did indeed kill her, he's blaming her death on her as well.
