Eye 4 An Eye

“Eye For an Eye,” begins with a sample “Even now in heaven there were angels carrying savage weapons” a dark distant guitar strummed in a middle eastern flavor builds against erratic paced high hats, and bang!, the deepest driving bass and phat shadow-less beats kick in with force, in the distance voices howl “Run, Run, Run, but you just can’t hide,” “An Eye for an Eye a Tooth for a Tooth,” is repeated as pulsating keys and a heavy felt string ensemble take charge to this dramatic tune. Samples of “Ball of Confusion (That’s What the World is Today,)” by Undisputed Truth, and “Fairground Ghost” by James Asher.

On the music video, directed by Shynola and Ruth Lingford, which is a captivating journey of a world of infant nipple suckers who’s world is invaded by a giant breast infecting the innocent suckers poisoning and transmutating them into the enemy. All design based on the artwork of grat graphic artist Robert Del Naja. Check the video. It’s a truly amazing video.

Eye 4 An Eye (U.n.k.l.e.)
“Even now in heaven there were angels carrying savage weapons.”*
An eye for an eye**
A tooth for a tooth**
Run run run but you sure can’t hide**
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Run run run but you sure can’t hide “Does our ruin benefit the earth?”***
“Does it help the grass to grow? The sun to shine?”***
“Is this darkness in you too? Have you passed through this night?”***
Run run run but you sure can’t hide
“Where you’re going you’re not coming back from.”
Run run run but you sure can’t hide
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Run run run but you sure can’t hide
“This great evil. Where’s it come from?”***
“How’d it steal in to the world?”***
“Who’s doing this? Who’s killing us?”***
“Mocking us with the sight of what we might have known?”***
Run run run
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Run run run but you sure can’t hide
“Are you righteous? Kind?”***
“Does your confidence lie in this?”***
“Are you loved by all? Do you imagine your sufferings will be less”***
“because you loved goodness and truth?”***
“What’re you to me?”
