Eyes in the Dark by Sweeney Toad

What are those beady little red eyes in the dark
It’s a vampire bat and I’m his mark
A vampire bat yeah that is subtle what do you know
A vampire bat sucked my butthole at the punk rock show

It was Halloween and we were going to the misfits show
We were young and dumb with numb skull dull instincts low
I don’t even know why I was even there
I only ever liked the Danzig songs to be fair
But Jerry Only was an entertainer make no mistake
But I think he could sense my distaste he cursed me with haste
I could feel my butthole tingle it seemed to attract
Like a torpedo in my butthole I got hit with a vampire bat
I felt it’s sharp fangs on my anus as it gripped on
It was like a painful hateful rim job
In god we trust but not today
He buried in my butthole send me your thoughts and prayers

What are those beady little red eyes in the dark
It’s a vampire bat and I’m his mark
A vampire bat yeah that is subtle what do you know
A vampire bat sucked my butthole at the punk rock show

Eyes in the dark, I see his eyes in the dark
Eyes in the dark, I see his eyes in the dark
Eyes in the dark, I see his eyes in the dark
Eyes in the dark, I see his eyes in the dark

The vampire bat had giant freakish wings
Stuck in my butt he hovered up to the ceiling
I was feeling motion sick I notice I’m about to chunk hard loud
I don’t want to but I spew blood on the punk rock crowd
But wouldn’t you know they love it lick it up
Then they become vampires they hunger for thick butts
They shrivel up and turn into vampire bats
They stare at my butthole looking enticingly fat
They all fly inside my butthole no fear fast brave
My butthole is their home it is their bat cave
I am their king Count Dracula’s finest
They plant inside my guts coronavirus

What are those beady little red eyes in the dark
It’s a vampire bat and I’m his mark
A vampire bat yeah that is subtle what do you know
A vampire bat sucked my butthole at the punk rock show
Sober GF: I can't explain why but I hated it

Toby Rok: Sweeeney Toad...I can’t explain why, but I like it...

Eyes In The Dark
Jim Tyrrell

The sun is going down - night is creeping in
Darkness all around - here we go again
Roaming through the town - looking for a friend
Nowhere to be found - all alone and then
Eyes in the dark - yeah, could this be end?

Let me break it down - every Halloween
I should know by now - it’s the same old scene
Wish that I knew how to wake up from the dream
Frightened by the sound - then I start to scream
Eyes in the dark - yeah, you know what I mean

Don’t know if you heard about the danger
But I’m pretty sure that there’s a stranger
Waiting in the dark so he can rearrange ya
Creatures lurking underneath the city
Waiting for the chance to come and get me
When they get ahold of me it won’t be pretty

Maybe there’s some kind of secret to it
If you found a way of living through it
Would it bother you to show me how to do it?
Moon is out and there’s no way to stop it
All the werewolves getting lycanthropic
Do you think that maybe we could change the topic?

Eyes in the dark

I looked into the void One too many times
Now I can’t avoid Paying for my crimes
Call me paranoid, I don’t even mind
I would be destroyed If I were to find
Eyes in the dark And they’re coming up from behind

That’s a little more Than my soul can take
I’ve been here before - I’m about to break
On the edge for sure - Sanity’s at stake
Never find a cure - Nothing I can take
Eyes in the dark Just lying in wait

I don’t really mean to sound erratic
But I think there’s something in the attic
Don’t make me go up there ‘cause I’ll start to panic
I don’t say this sort of thing to scare ya
But I won’t go up alone - I dare ya
You can stay - I’d run away - it’s automatic

You would have to be completely crazy
Thinking you could run around here safely
Ain’t no way that you will catch me starting static
Calculate the chances of survival
And you’ll see that my decision’s final
That’s not paranoia, that’s just mathematics

Eyes in the Dark
- caravan ray

She says these dark thoughts will make me stand above myself
But can we two be lovers, leave the others on the shelf
So turn out the lights, I've seen all I want to see
And we both know it is impossible

i will go out tonight, I don’t know what I will find there
I’ll open up my eyes, until I see in the dark

Trying just to find something different to talk about
In the darkness you can find the answer to your doubt
So turn out the lights, I've seen all I want to see
And I see, it is impossible

i will go out tonight, I don’t know what I will find there
I’ll open up my eyes, until I see in the dark

Every star is a mystery
Every door an opportunity

i will go out tonight, I don’t know what I will find there
I’ll open up my eyes, until I see in the dark

I turn out the light and go to bed
I can’t sleep when your still inside my head
Close my eyes in the dark
Listening to the beat of my broken heart

It’s been a while since I saw you last
I can’t tell if a month or a year has passed
Nothing but the blues for so long
Where the hell have all the good times gone?
(someone tell where the good times have gone)

It’s like everyone’s talking
In a foreign language
Maybe what I really need is
A blank canvas

I passed by your old place in Harold Wood
I just happened to be in the neighbourhood
And if you believe that you’ll believe anything....
.....like there’s a god
and when you fall in love choirs of angels sing

Eyes in the Dark - Brown Word and the Big Whine

We settled into no man's land
Walked a line that wasn't there
Earth turned to sand and sun to shade
Weight of the curse upon us laid

Eyes in the dark out beyond the back gate
Fingerless touch in the dead of the night
Eyes in the dark and a voice on the wind
I can't help but wonder where the rest of him is

He was just an echo of the past
An empty face no longer there
Turn of sun and sands of time
An eternity paid for his lost crime

Eyes in the dark out beyond the back gate
Fingerless touch in the dead of the night
Eyes in the dark and a voice on the wind
I can't help but wonder where the rest of him is

We didn't taste when water turned to salt
We didn't haste when shadows crawled
The touch of evil on every surface
The wilting fruits have gained no purchase
There's nothing left to sell
And no one who will buy
We tend this patch of cursed earth
Where nothing dead can peaceful lie
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

Eyes In The Dark
by Balls To Monte

Blue moon on Halloween night
Hanging in the autumn sky,
Pumpkin patch vigil tonight
Waiting for a god to reply.
Carved faces and hollow eyes
Float over the flaming field,
High beams land with surprise
On a dead-eyed Scarecrow shield.

Well you may not see forest from the trees
And I know our future looks stark
So, take my hand. I’ll show you the land
And I’ll be your eyes in the dark
 
A distant bang, is it the crack
Of a branch, or the shot of a gun?
Is it merely an idea off-track,
Or a flash of inspiration?
Damn the torpedoes and hide
A haze of pain I perceive
Disengage from your pride
Turn and face what you weave

Well you may not see forest from the trees
And I know our future looks stark
So, take my hand. I’ll show you the land
And I’ll be your eyes in the dark
"...and it ain’t a fit night out for man or beast!”

Phlebia

See that man there on the table
Blown off the roof now he's unstable.
He's got those broken bones and the blue contusions
His heart is leaking cause of cardiac effusion

Oh, I know you've got this down to an art
Just use your touch to feel the heart
Girl I know you got the smarts, baby
Can't use your eyes in the dark

Boss man is going to the basement
Not hard to guess what that look on his face meant
You got a short circuit, hit the breaker
Live wires'll have you meet your maker

Ride the lightning catch the spark
The current goes straight through the heart
It'll leave you burned, it'll leave you charred
You gotta be careful in the dark

Can't push it now, don't even start
I saw his eyes in the dark
It might be tough, it might be hard
Gotta cut you open in the dark

Eyes In The Dark - Robyn Mackenzie

I saw your eyes in the dark glowing red like a snake
Saw my reflection in the shadow of a tidal wave
Looks like you missed your chance, well it's such a shame
It's like a nightmare, monsters always calling my name

What do you want from me, well I gotta know
Wrapping me up in your spiderweb
You want me to stay but honey, I gotta go
Or someone's gonna end up dead

I saw your face in the night creeping up my bed
I saw a shrink but they tell me that it's all in my head
I know you'll never go, no it won't ever end
My body's shaking, gotta find something to do instead

You always follow me wherever I go
Filling me up with your subtle lies
Laughing in my face like it's some kind of joke
Wearing your sick disguise

I see your eyes in the dark
But I won't back down
Not gonna tear me apart
Every time you come around
And it's hard
Not to fuck things up when it gets loud
But oh no no no
I'm not gonna go go go
You're gonna have to catch me

I hear your voice on the wind calling me out to play
No matter what I do, you just won't go away
It's never quite enough, I take it day by day
My head is broken and I don't know what to say

Tell me I'm crazy, tell me that I'm insane
I already know anyway
You fill up my head and you run through my veins
But I don't care what you say

I see your eyes in the dark
But I won't back down
Not gonna tear me apart
Every time you come around
And it's hard
Not to fuck things up when it gets loud
But oh no no no
I'm not gonna go go go
You're gonna have to catch me

I see your eyes in the dark
But I won't back down
Not gonna tear me apart
Every time you come around
And it's hard
Not to fuck things up when it gets loud
But oh no no no
I'm not gonna go go go
You're gonna have to catch me

Eyes in the Dark - JP Nickolas

The moon shines full with wonder
For the beast who tear asunder
Those who dawdle in the street
Bitter ends they meet

But if you hope to seek it’s blessing
The power, keeps you guessing
Then look for the mark
Stare down the eyes in the dark

Yeah It’s only 1AM
Many sleep but I’m not them
I’m not shrewd

So I walk without a care
Unaware of piercing stares
Oh I do

Until something in me sees
The yellow shimmers in the trees
Panic’s setting in
I might not survive

I recall the haunted tale
Knowing that it hunts the frail
If I stand up to it’s leer
It may turn me to a peer

I will stare down the
Eyes in the dark
I won’t just be
Cries in the park

When it tries to come abound
I will stand and hold my ground
I won’t die

With terrored eyes I’ll grin
“Don’t you terrorize, my kin”
“I see you”

Dragging forth its gleaming claw
Out here fear’s the only law
I won’t move

It knocks me down with all it’s might
But I’ll be damned if I don’t fight
Fingers wrapped around my throat
Face goes red as my lungs bloat

Still I stare down the
Eyes in the dark
Despite my
Terror so stark

Flesh on my arm rips
I fall in a grassy crypt
I won’t die
I might die

This kiss on my arm burns with a heat
Its mark begins to yearn to eat
For the scrumptious folks who start to rise
In the brush I’ll be the eyes
The eyes in the dark

Eyes In The Darkness
Pigfarmer Jr

Eyes in the darkness staring back at me
Catch a glimpse of the stars but mostly the ground beneath
Hear the horses rumble, they carry us away
Beat and bound all through the night, we ride all through the day

And we ride on
We ride on
Never to see our home again

Eyes in the darkness entering my dreams
Paint a bloody picture, gagged so I can't scream
They drug my son away, I watched as they murdered him
The memory reminds me of the hell we're in

And we ride on
We ride on
Never to see our home again

Texas seemed like a heaven on this earth
But the Comanche, they manifest the curse
Living on the frontier, knowing we took a risk
Who would ever dream that we would end up like this?

And we ride on
We ride on
Never to see our home again

eyes in the dark
by amby moho

there's no such thing as "free time"
we pay the price
a slow atrophy into ice
an imperfect crime

eyes in the darkness
see every possibility
blinded by the brightness
we missed our opportunity

too late
too little patience
too unrefined
it's not just another day
or forgotten night

eyes in the darkness
see every possibility
blinded by the brightness
we missed our opportunity
eyes in the darkness
see right through your anonymity
blinded by the brightness
we misread the potential as quintessential
but it was quite ordinary

Eyes in the Dark
by Lichen Throat

Camelot on late-night TV,
With a loaf of bread and butter.
Around the street light I can see
Moths swirl and flutter.
My eyes in the dark
See the clean, pure night,
The sky full of sparks,
And the city lights.

A frisbee duel at 1:00 a.m.
By Monte Vista Hall.
Grab my sweatshirt by the hem
And jump the stucco wall.
My eyes in the dark
See the clean, pure night,
The sky full of sparks,
And the campus lights.

Cool and quiet, still and thrilling,
Empty streets and nightbirds trilling.

Hiking boots on crumbled granite
Along Embudo Canyon
Coyote howls and shining planets
Are my few companions.
My eyes in the dark
See the clean, pure night,
The sky full of sparks,
And the city lights.

Eyes in the Dark - Night Sky

She leaned over the bannister that night
As he lay sprawled across the marble floor
Like an old bear rug placed carelessly
By the cleaning crew as an afterthought.
She looked lovely, her hair curled around
Her chin, her scarlet lips a perfect oval
Around her shock white teeth.
The room still as an ancient tomb until
The sound of her laughter made the walls shake

Like eyes in the dark
Like silence to the lonely
Like reason to an idiot
Your heart is wasted here.

The premonition arose in the moment
As time did a flip and she understood
Yesterday the scene before her now
Was a tableau she had forever foreseen.
After all those years pouring her wisdom
And patience and love into his cupped hands
That he spilled on the sidewalks and alleys
Where he lost himself and waited for her
To add forgiveness and guide him back home.

Like eyes in the dark
Like silence to the lonely
Like reason to an idiot
Your heart is wasted here.

Could be she thought it would be her someday
Face down somewhere, but it wouldn’t matter.
By then she’d be beyond the need for air
Her useless offerings gathering dust.
In that moment she understood her thoughts were liars.
Her knowledge was ancestral,
The staircase wisdom of remorseful ghosts
Unsettled in their cold graves as they screamed:
Don’t water plastic flowers. Feed the trees!

Like eyes in the dark
Like silence to the lonely
Like reason to an idiot
Your heart is wasted here.

Eyes in the Dark - Hot Pink Halo

***

I hide my eyes in the dark
I cloak my size in the dark
I bide my time in the dark
I’m always near

I see you
Do you see me?
I’m at the edges of your vision
Always just out of reach

I see your eyes in the light
I grow high in the light
I reach my reprise in the light
I’m always here

I see you
Do you see me?
I’m at the edges of your vision
Always just out of reach

Cut me down and I’ll grow back
Cut me down and I’ll grow back
Cut me down and I’ll grow back
My roots go deep
I’m strong enough to make the footpath crack
Devil’s got me Lindt! Devil’s got me Lindt!
