    "Gary Gilmore's Eyes" Lyrics

    Adverts feat. Ruts

    I'm lying in the hospital
    I'm pinned against the bed
    A stethoscope upon my heart
    A hand against my head

    They're peeling off the bandages
    I'm wincing in the light
    The nurse is looking anxious
    And she's quivering with fright

    The doctors are avoiding me
    My visions confused

    I listen to my earphones
    And I catch the evening news

    A murderer's been killed
    And he donates his sight to science
    I'm looked into a private ward
    I realize that I must be
    Looking through Gary Gilmore's eyes

    I smash the light in anger
    Push my bed against the door
    I close my lids across the eyes
    And wish to see no more

    The eye receives the messages
    And sends them to the brain
    No guarantee the stimuli
    Must be perceived the same
    When looking through Gary Gilmore's eyes

    Gary don't need his eyes to see
    Gary and his eyes have parted company
