lyrics

With vision blurred by spectacle
Our common senses have been dulled
The grey has turned to black and white
I've got a target in my sights
I've got a fix, a fix, a fix, a fix

Got a brand new pair of glasses
And a pocket full of matches
Everything is clearer
The problem's in the mirror

You're out of focus, out of truth
A blind spot in your point of view
The doctors say they have a cure
But their prescriptions never work
I've got a fix, a fix, a fix, a fix

This town needs a fire
It's gotta be rewired
Break all the connections
And cut out the infection

When 20/20's not enough
And second sight brings second thoughts
When what you see is what you get
And what you want is to forget
I've got a fix, a fix, a fix, a fix

Got a brand new pair of glasses
And a pocket full of matches
Everything is clearer,
The problem's in the mirror

This town needs a fire
It's gotta be rewired
Break all the connections
and find a new direction
