Lyrics: 

Oh...

Lost your head
Now you sleep on the floor
What you said
I don't want any more.
Through the haze
Make your eyes undulate
Out in space
Days (Daze) away...

Through these eyes
I rely on all I see
Obscured
Through these eyes
Looks like I'm home tonight

Left for dead
As you sleep on the floor
Things we said
We don't mean anymore.
Tear inside
Like a fallen kite.
Hey hey yeah...

Through these eyes
I deny (on) all I see
Obscured
Through these eyes
Looks like I'm home tonight

What she said
Made a mess of me
What you said 
I don't want.
Obscured
