Jack Alberson I Ya Toyah’s newest single takes it beyond her previous releases into a mindbending, primal place. There’s no one else out there, currently, mining such a range of sonic territory, and I cannot wait for the full album.

about

Wake! WAKE! ...Wake up!!!
Because ‘Insanity is the only sane reaction to an insane society’.

Glass Eyes is I Ya Toyah's third single from the full length debut album Code Blue. It tells a story about mental crash as a consequence of a chain reaction caused by social expectations, pressure and fear of failure, resulting in procrastination, inaction and...insanity.

Written, recorded and produced by I Ya Toyah at Bradley Mental Institute.
Mixed and mastered by Brad Pack of Punchy Kick.
Video by Joel Lopez of Lumbra Records.

lyrics

Wake,
Wake up!
[Inaudible mumble]...
Tearing up, breaking up
Destruction of your soft side
The rush is calling
Poison glowing
Glass eyes, glass eyes, glass eyes
We play, we chose the game
We roll, the dice is in play
If I’m not here this is the pass
Glass eyes, glass eyes, glass eyes
I’m staring at you
I can’t see through
I’m staring at you
I can’t see you…
Blinders on! Hide away….
Wake up! Fragments of reality
Wake up!
Shut up, shut up, shut up! Shut up! Shut up!!!!!
All the pieces together
Like a chain reaction
One step without the other
I never took an action
I’m the wiggling finger
Now pointing at you
You can see it too!
In my glass eyes, glass eyes
Blinders on! Hide away….
Wake up! Fragments of reality
Wake up!
Shut up, shut up, shut up! Shut up! Shut up!!!!!
I’m on your side, devil
Why do you argue that?
I’m flesh and bones, devil
For you to pick at
Blinders on! Hide away….
Wake up! Fragments of reality
Wake up!
Shut up, shut up, shut up! Shut up! Shut up!!!!!
