Behind Blue Eyes Lyrics

Play "Behind Blue Eyes"
on Amazon Music

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows
What it's like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies

But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

    In the book "Monster" by Walter Dean Myers,this song rrelates to this book because the way that this song, “Behind the Blue Eyes” betrays Steve’s feelings is almost unbelievable. Sometimes in life it's not weather you have solid evidence, but how other people betray the scene into other people's minds. Mrs. Henry, Steve's attorney was trying to place in the jury's mind that he was not the reason that all of this took place and that it was James King’s fault, and not Steve's.

    It is obvious that, however it is a cover, the meaning of the song is different than the original from The Who.

    If I look to the songvideo from Limp Bizkit and the lyrics of they'r version of the song. My interpretation of meaning is: a Psychologist explains to a client how that client feels to let that person know, I do know what is like to have these feelings in a way of reconition. Also to give the message. People can say about you whatever they want ... and sure, everybody has a meaning. But you are not a heartless machine you to have dreams to chase. Don't fall in depression.

    But everybody will have they're own interpretation of the of meaning about this song... and thats fine

    This song was written by Pete Townsend and originally sung by Roger Daltry of The Who the 1960's to present day English mod/rock band in 1971, so probably not about Bastiaan Steeghs...

    This song is about Bastiaan Steeghs and how he destroyed a woman who more than loved him, believed in him,was loyal to him, almost lost her life from the loss of him and his rejection of her. He feels hated because he knows what he's done to her is wrong. He's acts of betrayal to a level of overkill. It kills him to know she still loves him regardless. He's too selfish to understand. It kills him to know he's inflicted such pain onto her and that he did so in the name of self serving betrayal. This song is about the duality of Bas and how he looses the people who love him the most to himself. His pain self inflicted as much as he wants otherwise his actions will not allow it. This song is about the consequences suffered when one person cannot be true and do the right thing. While he may not care about it all in the future his heart and soul still pay a price for inflicting such pain on those who cherish him.
