Cage the Elephant- Right Before My Eyes (Lyrics)

by Mitch Powers • 508,153 views

Timber shakes these trails they all derail Phony, false and frail An empty ocean lost our way with no direction home Golden needles names we take in vein Find it harder to remain And nothings...

I can't tell if I like this or the slower version better

This song makes me think of self harm and suicide.

This band goes from sounding like the Beatles, to sounding like the Offspring.. But they're still Cage the Elephant, they maintained a certain "uniqueity" about themselves

This is the song Caleb Jacobson was listening to when Maggie saved his life in the significance book...It fits so well. :,)

And what is more ``suprising``... It also fits to the whole world that is losing control :)

There are good rap songs, that are as deep and meaningfull as rock songs. You just have to know how to look.

Am I the only one who is reminded of green day's basket case at 2:36? I am one of those melodramatic fools neurotic to the bone no doubt about it Idk it kind of sounds similar CTE is much better band though

WARNING: Attention seeking whoreish shit is about to ensue. I was listening to this when my girlfriend broke up with me, you'd figure I'd feel bad listening to it but it actually holds a serene comfort. =) I don't see how you can't love Cage the Elephant.

Rap isn't bad, think of The Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill, House of Pain, De La Soul, Jurassic 5 and many others. Good rap, just like good rock, is dying out.

This is one of the most underrated Cage the Elephant songs

we need more bands like these guys

You're corrupted by dumbassery. Cage the Elephant is great. Rap is great. It's superficial, socially irresponsible music in general that's "ruining our generation". Various artists spanning all genres. But you know, that's just my opinion or whatever, but 'ya just can't group all artists together within a genre as corruptive or this or that. There will always be exceptions.

i adore his voice, he has that "i dont give a f***, i just love to sing" voice. (: but my fav song by Cage the Elephant has to be "Shake Me Down" <3.

Why argue? Why not just appreciate the genius that is right before all of our eyes and ears :) see what I did there? k, that was pretty lame, but still. Just chill and enjoy the music. It's hard NOT to enjoy this music.

i had lucky to find this great band

you just strengthened his point, just because others have opinions doesn't mean you should bash them because they have a different view, he was telling the guy not to hate on rap just because he doesn't like it, he was accusing a musical genre of corrupting an entire generation, which we all know is horse shit, ps I don't like rap/country but I don't blame them for killing my entire being lol

well there are a lot of rap artists that produce that kind of songs, but you wouldnt understand the lyrics anyway, so try something from immortal technique. not every rapper talks about fucking, hoes, money or drugs ya know

My friend just said this sounded like it could have been written by The Beatles, Cage the Elephant is in good company then ;)
Report spam or abuse
yea you tell him, can't believe people are blinded by partying and money that rap makes you believe when really, they need 2 open their eyes 2 the real world, which (like this song talks about) is failing miserably
