Glitter In Their Eyes Lyrics

It's been a while since I've seen your face
Been a while since I've walked this place
I see the monkeys riding on their bikes
Racing through the impossible night

You say you're feeling like a new tree
Oh, man they'll cut you from limb to limb
Pick your pockets with delight
Shake it to the right, shake it in the light

Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes
Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes

Genius stalking in new shoes
Have you got WTO blues
Dust of diamonds
Making you sneeze
Kids on rollers ready for running

Through the junkyards
Breezing through the halls
Racing through the malls
And walking through the walls

They'll strip your mind
Just for fun
Quoth the raven
Yum, yum, yum

Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes
Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes

Children, children everywhere
Selling souls for souvenirs
They've sold them out like as not
Just for chunks of Ankgor Vat

Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes
Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes

Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes
Oh, can't you see the glitter
The glitter in their eyes

They'll trade you up, trade you down
Your body a commodity
Our sacred stage has been defaced
Replaced to grace the marketplace

Dow is jonesing at the bit
42nd Disney Street
Ragged hearts unraveling
Look out kids the gleam the gleam
Is not, is not
