Behind Blue Eyes – Limp Bizkit

Overall

  • Cool Factor

Limp Bizkit was one of the first bands to get me interested in cover songs back in the 90’s, and while I can appreciate the uniqueness of this song, I don’t really find it all that good. The Music is OK, the vocals are autotuned, and I’m not really sure what that electronic voice in the middle of the song is all about. I wasn’t really much of a fan of the original The Who song either, so that probably doesn’t help my opinion of this cover.

The Lyrics

Right now ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
I am an anti-Christ
I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy the passerby’Cause I want to be anarchy
No dogs bodyAnarchy for the U.K.
It’s coming sometime and maybe
I give a wrong time, stop a traffic line
Your future dream has sure been seen through’Cause I want to be anarchy
In the cityHow many ways to get what you want
I use the best, I use the rest
I use the N.M.E.
I use anarchy’Cause I want to be anarchy
Its the only way to beIs this the MPLA
Or is this the UDA
Or is this the IRA
I thought it was the U.K.
Or just another country
Another council tenancyI want to be anarchy
And I want to be anarchy
(Oh what a name)
And I want to be an anarchist
(I get pissed, destroy!)

No one knows what it’s like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows what it’s like
To be hated
To be faded to telling only liesBut 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 freeNo one knows what its 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 woe
Can show throughBut 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 freeNo one knows what its like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
No one know how to say
That they’re sorry and don’t worry
I’m not telling liesBut 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 freeNo one knows what its like
To be the bad man, to be the sad man
Behind blue eyesIn the clouds
All the graves
I’ll stay if you
Go away
Concrete
Tall as the sky
Movement passi’n me by
When you blush
What a rush
Reminisce
Cold crush
Next door ear to the wall
All the tension on me for the call
I wish I wish
I wish it was all that easy
I wish I wish
I wish it was all that easy
