shield your eyes lyrics – jawbreaker

there was a sun once, it lit the whole d*mn sky
it kept everything, everything alive
and there was a man once, he looked it straight in the eye
he saw everything, everything, he went blind

the truth burns bright, there’s too much there sometimes
the sun it shows, the sun it blinds
best to keep your eyes, stare at the sidewalk lines
let lies lie, don’t let them shine

the blind man staggers and he grabs at his eyes
he can’t do anything, everything is a lie
now he sits around and he stares at the walls
he can’t do anything, anything at all

the truth burns bright, there’s too much there sometimes
the sun it shows, the sun it blinds
best to keep your eyes, stare at the sidewalk lines
let lies lie, don’t let them shine

shield your eyes from all this misery
