They Provide the Paint for the Picture-Perfect Masterpiece you will Paint on the Inside of your Eyelids
By Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution

There is a man with a face and a name I don't remember,
Lives in a house in the middle of the woods
He said once, "Son, don't you laught out loud for they are listening, Oh they are listening"
Oh, you've gotta be strong
Oh, you gotta keep holding on
Its all just a matter of time....
Headed for the hills, go!

They provide the paint for the picture-perfect masterpiece that you will paint on the insides of your eyelids
Can you possibly see anything you'd want to see? No! Hell no!
There's nothing wrong with the way I see...
And he wanted to be a soldier in the next great war
He wanted to kill and fight and maim and not be told what he was fighting for
And that's the way its going to have to be my friend
And that's just the way its going to have to be my friend

I passed a man on the corner in the city yesterday
Saying "yada yada yada and tomorrow it will end"
And I thought I'd never live to see another sunny day
But I'm here, and I'll be here until the end

So watch your mouth, or you're gonna make a grave mistake
Hold your tounge, or you're gonna catch a bullet in the head
Watch your mouth, or you're gonna make a grave mistake
Don't die for anything less than the best of life

The things they said went to your head,
You never tried to understand:
"What they take you will never take back,
'cause they take what they take when they can cause they can from you.
You follow me and you follow me but you never ask why
And I wonder what you’re under could this be another piece of
“I don’t care I just do what they say because they say what to do in a matter-of-fact way.”
Don’t stop because you might get burned and you might just learn how to stand on your own two feet
And I think that it’s neat how you learn to repeat everything that you hear in the street so well.
Learn to repeat everything that you hear so well

And everyone was resting because they thought it was the end
And even if it wasn’t they decide they’d pretend
And somewhere in the distance I could hear him whispering
“You can fight all you want, you'll never win in the end.”

Sometimes in the evening, while I'm lying in my bed
I am taken to the forest and that isolated shed
And I wake with his words resonating in my head
And I can't stop thinking about the jist of what he said;

"So watch your mouth, or you're gonna make a grave mistake
Hold your tounge, or you're gonna catch a bullet in the head
Watch your mouth, or you're gonna make a grave mistake,
Don't die for anything less than the best of,
Everyone settles for the rest not the best of,
Now we'll die for no less than the best of life"
