In 1991 I got glassed,
Cousin got murdered, friend got attacked
And the house next door to ours got ransacked again...

But seeing is believing,
Hearing is receiving
a deaf and blind world that I don't believe in
Blinded by light, flattened by sound
Over and out...underground.

But seeing is believing
Hearing is receiving
a deaf and blind world that I don't believe in
Blinded by light, flattened by sound
Over and out...underground.

Down here, talk to us
We'll hear, the future is here
Walk with us from here

In 1993 I will be 3-0 years inside this body
I don't know what's going on outside me...
But seeing is believing
Hearing is receiving
A deaf and blind world that I don't believe in
Blinded by light, flattened by sound
Over and out...underground.

Down here, talk to us
We'll hear, the future will heal
Walk with us from here

Harry Dean Stanton, an actor born in West Irvine, Kentucky on July 14th, 1926, tends to take roles of outcasts, the most notable of which being his lead in Wim Wenders' 1984 film Paris, Texas. Though he has been working in movies and television since 1950 (billed as Dean Stanton to avoid confusion with fellow Petticoat Junction actor Harry Stanton), his roles in the sci-fi classic Alien and the underground hits Repo Man and Wild At Heart secured him as a cult favorite.

When he's not acting, he's playing guitar and lending his voice to his band, the aptly named Harry Dean Stanton Band, which allegedly plays often at Jack's Sugar Shack in Hollywood.

Though the song has no immediate relevance to the actor, it should be noted that the title was chosen because it originally opened with a sample from Paris, Texas, but the sample was pulled when the Poppies realized that they probably couldn't get away with it like they usually do.
