Live version of "Eyeline" performed by Roscoe Baggins used in the Official Music Video created by Andrew DeSelm

lyrics

I’m playing such a major role
and I need my concentration
to be in tact and unbroken
especially by the gaze you stole

Amidst my brilliant monologue
precisely when you caught my eye
I stuttered through the titular line
and flipped my tongue like a Pog
I flipped my tongue like a Pog

Get out of my eyeline
Get out of my eyeline
And let me be this time
You’re like a TV that’s left on in a room
I have to look at you
I have to look at you and forget what it was that I was supposed to do

And I just cannot look beyond your figure standing there
occupying the queen’s square when you started out as a pawn

Taking up space and breathing air, pretending that you belong
but your role was cast so wrong, giving me an extra burden to bear
giving me an extra burden to bear

Get out of my eyeline
Get out of my eyeline
I was doin’ just fine
You’re like a satellite that is seen from afar
You think you are a star
You think you are a star but you don’t know what it is you really are

Now my thoughts are running wild; I can’t number all my mind’s loose ends
and keep up with all the changing trends. With bewilderment of a child

I used to focus like a hawk and I could actually live my part.
My life was a performance art and my will was solid as a rock
My will was solid as a rock

Get out of my eyeline
Get out of my eyeline
And let me be this time
You’re like the bones sticking out of my skin
You’re making me look thin
You’re making me look thin and I can’t fickle around with you enough to put you back in
