Pink Floyd - Paranoid Eyes Lyrics




button your lip don't let the shield slip
take a fresh grip on your bullet proof mask
and if they try to break down your disguise with their questions
you can hide hide hide
behind paranoid eyes
you put on your brave face and slip over the road for a jar
fixing your grin as you casually lean on the bar
laughing too loud at the rest of the world
with the boys in the crowd
you hide hide hide
behind petrified eyes
you believed in their stories of fame fortune and glory
now you're lost in a haze of alchohol soft middle age
the pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high
and you hide hide hide
behind brown and mild eyes

    Button your lip and don't let the shield slip
    Seek a fresh grip on your bullet proof mask
    And if they try to break down your disguise with their questions
    You can hide hide hide
    Behind paranoid eyes
    You put on your brave face and slip over the road for a jar
    Fixing your grin as you casually lean on the bar
    Laughing too loud at the rest of the world
    With the boys in the crowd
    You can hide hide hide
    Behind petrified eyes
    You believed in their stories of fame fortune and glory
    Now you're lost in a haze of alcohol soft middle age
    The pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high
    And you hide hide hide
    Behind brown and mild eyes

    Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to kill me - OK..?!

  3. Gilbert Bloemendal

    I need to pee, anyone?... nice song btw.

  4. Dante Arellano

    Never tired listening pink Floyd sounds...... from cotabato Philippines.

  5. Gilbert Pilz

    This is not a song for young people.

    ShanManTV

    As a young person i am legally not allowed to enjoy this song. Got it

    Gilbert Pilz

    @ShanManTV - you can enjoy it all you want but, seriously, how do the lyrics resonate with your experience of life so far?

    Luiz A LR

    Gilbert Pilz bro, tu não bate bem, sua pergunta contém os pontos em defesa das pueris mentes,, cercear nossos pequerruchos ouvintes de não terem a experiência de bom ou ruim é muito cabrero. Deixe as crianças em paz.

  6. John Doe

    The lyrics sound like they’re about PTSD

    Gilbert Pilz

    That and just getting old.

    David W Warren

    @Gilbert Pilz The Post War dreams and disappointments, and yes the horrors they saw and lived thru

  7. Gilbert Bloemendal

    This song.. man...love it.

  8. Degree7

    Poignant.

  9. Al K

    Faisal Alkaabi (May 5, 1933 - January 1, 2019). May Lord have mercy on my Father's soul. I love you Papa.

  10. brnt allyn

    One of the best

  11. Mark Stockford

    The pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high.

  12. Neo

    The Pros and the Cons of Hitchhiking album is really similar

    John Doe

    Shahriar Niloy The Final Cut is vastly superior both musically and lyrically. But similar production and sound effects. There was at least some Gilmour quality control on TFC. Pros and Cons is what happens when Waters ego fully takes over.

  13. Adam Cooke

    This is Roger's. Not Pink's.

    sahara

    Nah its pink's last album

    MrExplodey

    Okay no, that's wrong too. There were 3 more pink floyd albums after this one.

    sahara

    @MrExplodey but they were without roger
    No roger = no pinkfloyd

    MrExplodey

    Dumbass, Roger isn't the only member of pink floyd, David gilmour, rick wright and Nick mason were still making music as pink floyd for almost a decade after roger left

    Gilbert Pilz

    Totally agree. This is a Roger Waters album that features some famous side musicians.

  14. king piece

    My favorite

  15. Pink Mane

    This album is amazing. I always give it a listen ^~^

  16. 864gel8

    best album by Roger and boys in the crowd,,,,,,,,,,

  17. El Maestro

    Underrated album

  18. Robert Kelly

    i'm not paranoid

  19. Jason Murphy

    my favorite

  20. Free 7

    this comment section... my community...

  21. valentino paskov

    Once you've heard all Pink Floyd albums, there is not much more to learn in life... The answer to our meaningless existance hides behind these covers...

    Robert Galletta

    TRY JONI MITCHELL'S "COURT AND SPARK"

  22. knarr trey

    Criminally underrated album!

    PrZemek44

    You're so right. When you listen to those songs separate, they're amazing. The problem is that most of them are slow and all together... may seem like a bit tiring. A great album.

    jo jo

    Exactly how I feel. I alternate them with other Floyd tracks

  23. Euler Luther Walkan

    When other interpreters perform this song I watch the vocal! Roger waters almost divinely recites the lyrics, this is wonderful, the other covers sing the lyrics! Descarateriza the texture of the music!

  24. zixzysm

    Great sound quality, almost like the vinyl record. Thanks for sharing!
