lyrics

I just had a conversation with an old friend
Poor fool thinks he’s been born again
Baptized in the name of fortune and fame
He says he knows where the power lies, he knows who to blame

I said who child, who’s been telling you lies
Because the revolution starts behind your eyes
You can pray for revelation you can look to the skies
But the revolution starts behind your eyes

Let me tell you about this girl I know...
She traded her mary-janes for high-heels
And her bubble-gum for cigarettes
Blue-jeans for mini-skirts
And her candy cane for something else

She said hey boy, you wanna go for a ride
I said the revolution starts behind your eyes
You can pray for revelation you can look to the skies
But the revolution starts behind your eyes

I knew this gray-haired poet, he had eyes like a crook
He could see right through a man with just one look
He said that winsome smile and those eyes of blue
Don’t they make lying easy for a boy like you

He said hey boy, you better put down your pride
Because the revolution starts behind your eyes
You can pray for revelation you can look to the skies
But the revolution starts behind your eyes
