Blue Oyster Cult - X-Ray Eyes Lyrics



Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
In the '50s Ray Milland pierced the skies

Do not envy who sees and plucks out his eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes

You think you want
You want to see
Through all the lies
You think you'd like
To see past death
With x-ray eyes x-ray eyes
X-ray eyes x-ray eyes
X-ray eyes x-ray eyes

Do not envy who sees beyond the pale
Don't look there, pluck not at nature's veil
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes

You think you want
To see the truth
But if you knew
You can't undo
You'd look away
With x-ray eyes x-ray eyes
X-ray eyes x-ray eyes
X-ray eyes x-ray eyes

Do not lift the veil of the skies
Do not lift the veil of the skies
Do not lift the veil of the skies
Do not lift the veil of the skies

Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes

With x-ray eyes x-ray eyes
With x-ray eyes x-ray eyes
X-ray eyes

Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes
Do not envy the man with the x-ray eyes

    The message being, don't wish you were someone you aren't, it could be bad, In the movie the man plucks out his eyes.

  3. The Mothman

    Maybe it's just me but it kinda reminds me of a Foo Fighters song.

  4. Del Shoemaker

    You think you'd wan't to see?

  14. Rob W

    Ray Milland would be proud of this tune. Buck is amazing in every respect.

  15. FatBike BMX

    This is such a great song. Heaven Forbid is one of their top 5 records IMO. Right up there with Spectres and Secret Treaties!

  16. Evan Elkins

    I can still see!

  17. Sam Noneofyourbisnus

    Do not envy the man with the X-ray pies

    Kellen Rist

    Steven Wilkinson

    Stacks of talent in this band but Buck is the Ace in the pack ...

  19. Del Shoemaker

    another song passed up so we can hear hip hop on the radio along with caned studio music!

    Techiyew

    here it is reggetonshit day in and day out and as loud as possible

  20. hoibsh

    X-ray eyes have seen too much, indeed.

  21. elf man

    Real catchy tune, Would have made a great single.
    Buck Dharma rocks.

    Kenneth Morrison 1

    Buck ( Donald Roeser) Dharma is Epic! Such Talent!!! \m/ \m/ BOC Forever!

  22. jfarrar19

    And LSD.

  23. gretzinabluehat

    I hear ya. There is defintely something of the BOC of yore here. When Buck Dharma starts lifting the veil of the skies with that voice and axe I got that BOC near death experience thing going too. Horsemen Arrive did it too when the Dharma backing vocals and licks kick in.....

  24. Krafty Karl

    While I'm using an x-ray texture pack in minecraft

  25. Kaine123

    When I'm using a wall-hack in any multiplayer shooter.

  26. emdeth

    I just picked this up a couple days ago, and was very pleased . I liked this movie when i was a kid.and what he (the x-ray man) does at the end still creeps me out .

    elf man

    It is a bizarre movie

  27. sinshamsh11

    The whole movie is on youtube now. Just fyi.... Somebody should make a BOC movie involving UFOs, bikers, vampires and maybe the Canadian Mounted Police...

    moparbee

    Don't forget GODZILLA!

    elf man

    There goes To kee o

    Chad Dickhaut

    You know what would make a great BOC movie? Aging Hell's Angels that make a death pact and perform a ritual combat in the desert, becoming a horde of spectral bikers prowling the desert highways. Yes, I'm talking about Golden Age of Leather, the Motion Picture. 😎

  28. Magnum

    ANOTHER CLASS SONG FROM THE MASTERS...

  29. Mality

    @dafyd201 Pay no attention to those who diss the movie. I guarantee you'll never forget it.

  30. David Phillips

    @a1zzzz Oh, I know that all too well... but I love crappy movies. I've seen the movie a few times before this song came out... but had to track down the DVD version for my collection!

  31. Saul Dagenham

    Lyrics by novelist John Shirley.

  32. michael6mac

    Don't fear the Weeper!

  33. richieq212

    amazing song

  34. Ricardo Ketter

    Meat Puppets anyone?

  35. David Phillips

    Great tune, but now I have to try and track down the movie that it's written around... X - The Man With the X-Ray Eyes. Roger Corman at his peak!

  36. Adam Feathers

    Awesome tune.
