Singalong! Naked Eye by Luscious Jackson

I loved this song so much as a teenager! Also, I didn't really know what it was about, and I still don't. Except maybe just an ode to the joy of being naked? Or is it supposed to be a metaphor for seeing everything clearly? Like, when your eyes are naked, and not covered by lies, it is pretty great?


NAKED EYE
by Luscious Jackson

Wearing nothing is Divine
Naked is a state of mind
I take things off to clear my head
To say the things I haven't said
Live inside the elements
The earth and sky are my best friends
Water is the evidence
That washes me from end to end

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all
If I said it all, I could see

It's not a choice I tried to make
It's not a thought I couldn't take
Something told me it was time
To give you yours and leave me mine
My vision started to be clear
I watched the sunlight coming near
I knew the day I knew the night
I knew I could regain my sight

And it feels alright
And it feels alright

(It feels alright)
With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
(It feels alright)
With my naked eye
I saw all
If I said it all, I could see
[repeat]

Last night I came into your home
To break some ice and throw some stones
I asked if we could be alone
I had some troubles of my own
Knew I had to say goodbye
To all the old things held inside
If I let the moment fly
I knew they'd all be magnified

And it feels alright
And it feels alright

Came around after dark
You are nothing but a lark
Know I snuck in like a narc
I knew I had to leave my mark
Wanted to be satisfied
I tried to be dignified
Wearing nothing is Divine
Naked is a state of mind

And it feels alright
And it feels alright

(It feels alright)
With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
(It feels alright)
With my naked eye
I saw all
If I said it all, I could see
[repeat]

It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
