The truth that lived in her green eyes would never let her be
It itched and burned and tripped her up, would never make her free
Sometimes hunger is a law that cancels every other law
Her eyes were green, much greener than the ocean's long drum roll
Her frightened eyes could always see the coward in your soul
Her eyes were green, much greener than all the cash she stole
But you threw her out because compared to hers, your life was a minor role
Achilles heel, appendix burst, a wart, a mole, a saint
Most people cut away the things that give them some complaint
