"Painted Eyelids" lyrics - BECK

"Painted Eyelids"

I wake up and look
Upon your painted eyelids
The world is your oyster
And the trashbags are your kids

The ceiling is invisible
And there's a bird sinkin' through the sky
And every hour that passes
Is teaching me how to cry

'Cause it's lonely here
In the ugly part of town
The buildings are all vacant
And the telephones are down

There's a police siren singin'
Like a tiger with no skin
The sewer drain is glowing
And I don't know what state I'm in

The river is on fire
There's chemicals and debris
And all the roads are blocked off
'Cause it's just too hard to see

So cancel my appointments
And set up a whole new show
'Cause I'm in need of a good hot meal
And a life to call my own

So give me a plate of money
And get me a blanket and a chair
Your limitations are limitless
They're floating through the air

'Cause it's real and it's true
The things I see in you
And there's nothing I wouldn't talk about
You're the clearest dream that ever drifted by
