A personal favorite of my cousin and I! The version I've heard is by LIMPBIZKIT, but the original one is by The Who. :viking3:


Artist Lyrics: Who, The
Song Lyrics: Behind Blue Eyes
Album Lyrics:
[Buy " " CD]

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
No one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

I prefer Ken McLellans and I believe Ian Stuart had done it also.

Means more when the person who sings it means it. :viking4:

Aye, the Ian Stuart version is my personal favorite for obvious reasons.

I was watching Gothika the other day and when the end credits came on I couldn't help but notice that there was the most horrendous cover of "Behind Blue Eyes" playing that I have ever heard. Ever. Now I know it must have been Limp Bizkit. It's a beautiful song and they totally bastardized it. I seriously suggest you listen to the original or Ian Stuart version, if you value your soul.
