This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood (2012).

I always held on to the thought
That if they loved you long enough

You'd find out what was missing
When they finally called your bluff

The line between the friend and foe
Is abitrary still
Drowning in piña coladas
As the bulls prowl around the ring

He didn't have, he didn't get
You didn't have the help you wanted
And when you saw, you saw Guernica fall

The hillsides exploded
And bodies filled the air
There was nothing left of Havana
In your thousand-yard stare

He didn't have, he didn't get
You didn't have the help you wanted
And when you saw, you saw Guernica fall

You've got a thousand-yard stare
You've got a thousand-yard stare
You've got a thousand-yard stare
You've got a thousand-yard stare
You've got a thousand-yard stare
You've got a thousand-yard stare
