In Flames – Eye of the Beholder [Metallica]


Artist: In Flames
Album: Subterranean
Year: 1994

Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
Do you see what I see?
Truth is an offence
Your silence for your confidence
Do you hear what I hear?
Doors are slamming shut
Limit your imagination, keeps you where they must
Do you feel what I feel?
Bittering distress
Who decides what you express?
Do you take what I take?
Endurance is the word
Moving back instead of forward seems to me absurd

[Pre-Chorus]
Doesn’t matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it’s done just how I say

[Chorus]
Independence limited
Freedom of choice is made for you my friend
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom with their exception

[Verse 2]
Do you fear what I fear?
Living properly
Truths to you are lies to me
Do you choose what I choose?
More alternatives
Energy derives from both the plus and negative
Do you need what I need?
Boundaries overthrown
Look inside, to each his own
Do you trust what I trust?
Me, myself, and I
Penetrate the smoke screen, I see through the selfish lie

[Pre-Chorus]
Doesn’t matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it’s done just how I say

[Chorus]
Independence limited
Freedom of choice is made for you my friend
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom with their exception

[Bridge]
Do you know what I know?
Your money and your wealth
Your silent just to hear yourself
Do you want what I want?
Desire not a thing
I hunger after independence, lengthen freedom’s ring

[Pre-Chorus]
Doesn’t matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it’s done just how I say

[Chorus]
Independence limited
Freedom of choice is made for you my friend
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom no longer frees you

[Post-Chorus]
Doesn’t matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it’s done just how I say
