Nietzsche's Eyes Lyrics - Paula Cole

Review The Song (1)



How many times did
I have to hear you say to me
Self obsessed artist
Center of your universe
Well I believed your every word
And I believed you were my god

CHORUS:

Nietzsche's eyes
Nietzsche's kind
Failed in flight to us
And all my love

Grandmother
Mother
And now I see it in myself
I take on the water
Until the dam threatens to break
sponsored links
I became a little doll
My voice became too small

Chorus

I'm shakin'
I'm shakin'
I'm getting down this fantasy
And I'm shakin'
I'm shakin'
I'm getting down this
Getting down this
You were not my superman
I didn't know
Just how I felt
All my love
I'm shakin'
I'm shakin'
I'm getting down this fantasy
I'm shakin'
I'm shakin'
I'm getting down this, getting down this
You were not my superman

I wasn't honest
I tried to philosphize
Only too late did
I see I wore nietzsche's eyes
Now that I step back to see
I haven't been me

Chorus

I'm shakin'
I'm shakin'
I'm getting down this fantasy
and I'm shakin'
I'm shakin'
I'm getting down this
getting down this (9 times)

Nietzsche's Eyes and This Fire | Reviewer: R Beau U | 9/8/2007

Getting feelings on paper is tough work. Phrasing words to completely express yourself may be as equally as challenging. The opening verse of this song is inspiring to those who seek to better formulate words that allow for deep-reflection. This track stems from an album comprised of deep-rooted psychologically issues that Paula is working through (or has worked through).

This album is well-balanced, in that it speaks of rebellion against conformity (against religion, sexist oppression, etc.) and seemingly pointless, self-inflicted ostracizing ("Tiger"); entertains the cliche of jaded love ("Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?"); describes the extent of one's mindset while in fanatical self-pity (“Road to Dead”); provokes the senses of promiscuity (“Feelin' Love”); expresses the classical sentiment of love-or-let-go attitudes towards relationships (“I Don't Want to Wait”); and invokes the “spirit” (if you will) of Buddhism and self-actualization (“Me”).

By far, this is one of Paula's most profound albums that will have a lasting impact on my personal life. It is among a few of my all-time favorite albums. (I realized this when my original CD from the 1990s was too scratched-up to play in the CD player anymore, and I actually went to the CD store to buy a new one!)

- Me!
