Notes: This song sprang into focus after my first ever visit to the eye doctor (which my blurry vision had necessitated for years). My newly altered view of the world set me to thinking about how a pair of proverbial glasses could alter my figurative view of things. However, I?ve discovered that not even a magical pair of glasses can bring clarity to the obtuse angle at which many

people choose to view one another. As headbutting, testosterone-shooting, and nation-bombing continue to increase in popularity, may see blindness as a way of avoiding the lost sight of reality.

Lost Sight

Kentucky Graham: Tenor Guitar

I woke up and tried to rub my nightmare right out of my eyes

All the world was just a blur, my point of view way out of line

Doc, I can?t see, it?s all a mess to me

Maybe I?ve just lost my sight

Is this what the world should look like?

Doc said you best have a seat, let?s take a peek at what?s going on

He said my head was all messed up from all the headbutts I had done

Doc, I won?t lie, I headbutt all the time

Maybe I?ve just lost my sight

Is this what the world should look like?

Then he asked me for a sample, said he had a test to do

I insisted, why a sample, won?t a simple eye chart do?

Your eyes have a glow of high levels of testosterone

Maybe I?ve just lost my sight

Is this what the world should look like?

While we waited, Doc said hey man why don?t we just watch the news

looked to me on the TV like little kids with big balloons

Doc said, ?Man, you?re blind, that?s grown ups with explosive mines"

Maybe I?ve just lost my sight

Is this what the world should look like?

The test came in, was positive, I needed glasses so I could see

Doc prepared a special pair that I could wear as I did leave

Doc, is this a joke, this world?s still out of focus?

Maybe I?ve just lost my sight

Is this what the world should look like?

Doc took back my glasses, said perhaps you?d rather wear contacts

I put?em in, things still looked grim, everything looked oil black

Doc, are these broke, they make the world look like it?s up in smoke

Maybe I?ve just lost my sight

Is this what the world should look like?

Finally, he said to me, your eyes deceive you see just fine

I could not believe my ears, did I go deaf, did I hear right?

Doc, this can?t be? Is this the world that everybody sees?

Maybe we?ve all lost our sight

Is this what the world should look like?
