Keep Your Eyes Peeled
Queens of the Stone Age Lyrics


Don't look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know, you will never believe
I play as though I'm alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone

And I know you'll never believe
I play as though I'm alright
If life is but a dream,
Wake me

Underwater is another life
Disregarding every myth we write
Rag doll churning
Eagerly alive

Big smile, really a show of teeth
Without a care in a world of fear
Lonely, you don't know how I feel
Praise God, nothing is as it seems

Don't look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, traipsing my mind's field
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?
And I know, you will never believe
I play it as though I'm alright
If life is but a dream
Then wake me up
Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
I daydream until all the blue is gone
And I know, you'll never believe
I play this as though I'm alright
If life is but a dream
Wake me
Underwater is another life
Disregarding every myth we write
Rag doll churning, eagerly alive (Over and over, gasping in horror)
(So breathless you surface, just as the next wave is...)
Big smile, really a show of teeth
Without a care in a world of fear
Lonely, you don't know how I feel
Praise God, nothing is as it seems

the sound of those drums is just incredible.

Jasper Gillgannon

What a comeback album! I love Songs For The Deaf with all my heart, but man, this might be becoming my new favourite QOTSA album.

Aimless Parasite

Same! Its too good

A B

18 Years and still not a single song that isn't great. QotSA are getting close to top 10 rock bands of all time status the way they're going.

C45TR4T1KR0N

The fact that there's a driving blues drum beat behind that stupidly heavy riff makes me so happy

Stank Planks Skate

This album is killer!

kyleinc100 H

that's because it was all written in what Homme thought was his deathbed

David Cascone

This is true poetry man. They're describing (I say they because the band did beautiful playing the music. Set the tone perfectly, and was perfectly dissonant and ominous) josh's miserable experience.

And that last line is like, "Omg, is it even true" because nothing he said is what really happened O.o o.O

Michaela DeLuca

This song kicks ass ❤️

Biel Rocksmith

Darkest Queens song right here. Holy fuck... Sets the tone of the album perfectly.
