Tired Eyes

This song is by Hey Rosetta! and appears on the album Into Your Lungs (2008).

I raised my head from the riverbed and I tasted the air
I built my home of oak and stone and I feasted on the animals and earth
I raised my kids in modern beds and I taught them to take what's theirs
I built this town on god and doubt and science (an economy of fear)
I drained the pond and the woods beyond for dinner, and the river for a song
The more I've got the more I want. I'm blinded but I'm waking up!

Tired eyes, open wide
Blossom iris into lily white
Tired eyes, open wide
Salty brine - bluest sky
Tired eyes, open wide
Either side - all these veins of light!
