Lyrics

Binoculars 7

Sloggin' in my room
Nothing much to see
Same old Dell Latitude screen
Runnin' Ableton Live
Choppin' up .WAV files
My optic nerve is gonna freeze

Riding on the bus, my bunk is really dark
In the dressing room at the Pizza Hut Park
We play another show, I try to do my best
But somehow all these faces look exactly like the rest
Back at my hotel, I'm totally alone
There's nothing on the TV but reality shows
I Skype my family, but it feels like a chore
I wanna see something I've never seen before
So I...

Whip out my binoculars
Now I can see so far
Hi-def details in my eyes
Make me want to ooh-ah ooh-ah ooh-ah

Don't get me wrong, I love my life
And I love working hard
Sometimes I strain and I lose my sight
Disappear in the night

I wanna see the world, all the living things
See what kind of serendipity that they bring
Exploit it in my art and my relationships
So I don't always end up warming up the same shit
I'm not a stalker perv, I'm just a regular guy
I need some yummy vittles for my famishing eyes
It's programmed in my genes, there ain't no turning back
Excuse me while I rummage through my Targus backpack and...

Whip out my binoculars
Now I can see so far
Hi-def details in my eyes
Make me want to ooh-ah ooh-ah ooh-ah

Bluebird is flying and looking for a space
Some perspiration is forming and rolling down her thigh
As someone watches tonight, I know that I am I gonna be
Seeing the moons of Jupiter
Mustache is fuming
and yelling at a lackey in a meeting
But I smile at everything I see
When I look through my binoculars

I whip out my binoculars
Now I can see so far
Hi-def details in my eyes
Make me want to ooh-ah ooh-ah ooh-ah
