Silversun Pickups - Lazy Eye

I've been waiting
I've been waiting for this moment all my life
But it's not quite right

And this 'real'
It's impossible if possible
At who's blind word
So clear but so unheard

I've been waiting
I've been waiting for this silence all night long
It's just a matter of time

To appear sad
With the same 'ol decent lazy eye
Fixed to rest on you
Aim free but so untrue

Everyone's so intimately rearranged
Everyone can focus clearly with such shine

Everyone's so intimately rearranged
Everyone can focus clearly with such shine

Lost and loaded
Still the same 'ol decent lazy eye
Straight through your gaze
That's why I said I relate
I said we relate
It's so fun to relate

It's the room the sun and the sky
It's the room the sun and the sky

I've been waiting
I've been waiting for this moment...

"Lazy Eye" is the third single from Silversun Pickups' debut album Carnavas. The band performed the song on the Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Later With Jools Holland, and Last Call with Carson Daly. The song is a playable track on Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero: World Tour. An alternate version of the song, with a length of 7:27, was played on XMU before the shorter version was played on FM and other XM channels. This version was featured on their demo CD (which featured early versions of four tracks). Music video The music video for "Lazy Eye" was directed by Suzie Vlcek, who directed the band's "Kissing Families" video as well as the video for Tegan and Sara's "The Con". It was produced by Eric Morgan. The music video is said to be a take on the 1970 Swedish film 'A Swedish Love Story'. It takes place in a club, possibly in the 1970s or 1980s judging by the hairstyles and clothing, brimming with teenagers dancing to the song as the band plays live on stage. The video alternates between the band playing, and a young girl with short hair. The girl notices a boy that shows up, she first ignores him and dances with another guy, notably when the song takes an angrier tone. The boy leaves, and waits outside, talking with friends. The girl eventually leaves the club, and sees him outside waiting, just like she waited for him. This reveals to her that he really does care about her, and they leave in good temper. Former band member Jack Kennedy also makes an appearance as the bartender. The video received airplay from MTV, VH1, Fuse, MTVU, and International Music Feed.
