Zack Whedon - Act 2 Scene 1: My Eyes lyrics

[BILLY is in his lab.] [Track 6. "My Eyes"] [BILLY] Any dolt with half a brain Can see that human kind has gone insane To the point where I don't know if I'll upset the status quo If I throw poison in the water main Listen close to everybody's heart And hear that breaking sound Hopes and dreams are shattering apart And crashing to the ground I can not believe my eyes How the world's filled with filth and lies But it's plain to see, evil inside of me Is on the rise [PENNY is visible, a homeless shelter can be discerned from tables and homeless people eating at them. PENNY is sitting with CAPTAIN HAMMER.] [PENNY] Look around We're living with the lost and found Just when you feel you've almost drowned You find yourself on solid ground And you believe there's good in everybody's heart Keep it safe and sound With hope, you can do your part To turn a life around I cannot believe my eyes Is the world finally growing wise 'Cause it seems to me, some kind of harmony Is on the rise [BILLY] Anyone with half a brain Could spend their whole life howling in pain Cause the dark is everywhere and Penny doesn't seem to care That soon the dark in me is all that will remain Listen close to everybody's heart And hear that breaking sound Hopes ​and dreams are shattering ​apart And crashing to the ground I can not believe my eyes How the world's filled with ​filth and lies But it's plain to ​see, Evil inside ​of me Is on the rise [PENNY] Take it slow He looks at me ​​and seems ​to know The things that I'm ​afraid to show, And ​suddenly I feel ​this glow And I believe ​there's good in everybody's heart Keep it safe and ​sound With hope, you can do your part To turn a life around I can not believe my eyes How the world's finally growing wise And it's plain to see, Rapture inside of me Is on the rise [BILLY and PENNY are doing laundry.] [PENNY] It is so dumb that we have been coming here for so long and never spoke. [BILLY] I know, all those months doing a stunningly boring chore. [PENNY] I'm a fan of laundry. [BILLY] Psyche! I love it! [PENNY] The smell of fabric softener. [BILLY] MMmmm. [PENNY] The feel of warm clothes in your hands. [BILLY] So good. [BILLY gets a bag of frozen yogurt and reaches in and pulls out two frozen yogurts.] [BILLY] Hey, this is weird. I ordered one frozen yogurt and they gave me two. You don't happen to like frozen yogurt, do you? [PENNY] I love it. [BILLY] You're kidding? What a crazy random happenstance! Here. [PENNY] Thank you. [BILLY] So how was your weekend? Did you spend the whole time hunting wild signatures? [PENNY] Um, actually, I went on a date... [BILLY] Get right outta town. How was that? [PENNY] Unexpected. He's a really good-looking guy, and I thought he was kinda cheesy at first... [BILLY (interrupting)] Trust your instincts [PENNY] But, he turned out to be totally sweet. Sometimes people are layered like that. There's something totally different underneath than what's on the surface. [BILLY] And sometimes there's a third, even deeper level and that one is the same as the top surface one. [PENNY] Huh? [BILLY] Like with pie. So are you gonna see him again? [PENNY] I think I will... [BILLY] Huh [PENNY] Billy? [BILLY] Yeah? [PENNY] You're driving the spork into your leg. [BILLY] So I am. Hilarious. Heh heh heh heh.
