Nighttime Eyes

from by Shadows & Mirrors



'Nighttime Eyes' first began as a concept track. The idea was the sound of someone walking through the city at night, complete with steam train sounds and people talking in the background, howling wind and rain. What it developed into is more of a stranger being taken in by the underworld of the night. The confusion of being out of your element and letting go-putting yourself at risk. There's some temptation and carnal nature to what happens after dark.


It's getting dark sun's going down can't find my way lost in this town
And as the night ticks slowly by I see my prey you are mine
I like control don't make a move I see the shadows on the moon
This shade of winter never ends once a stranger now a friend

I'm feeling fine how bout you this isn't love it's something new
To play the part a victim's game I take a taste you turn away
Now listen close no one in sight I fill your void night after night
Is this a game you like to play I break the rules that you obey

Put on your Nighttime Eyes
I'm running through your veins
Scared of what you'll find
You won't be the same

It's getting late somewhat confused I'm just a stranger with a view
Lights going out must be last call I push you up against the wall
Now take your time turn around shut your mouth don't make a sound
Is this a game you like to play I break the rules that you obey

Have I lost my faith in you again
Have I lost my pride in you my friend
Have I lost everything
Am I a man too scarred to clean
Now you say
I don't care about you
