"Right Before My Eyes"
« on: 07 Jan 2006, 22:02 »

Johnny C and I were both listening to this song earlier today, which he purchased at a fund raiser for the local community radio station, and we were left baffled.

"Right Before My Eyes", the one hit that the Snitches managed to secure, had one of Earth's all-time most infectious hooks. I like to imagine a concert that is simply the chorus repeated for three hours with no breaks in the music and different vocalists. Johnny says three minutes, tops.

But, we couldn't figure out what the lead singer is saying when it comes to the end. During the chorus, the normal "Right before my eyes" is sung, but he also sings another line that sounds vaguely like "You need change."

So, we thought that we would put it to you, dear forum members, to help us with this mystery and post your own interprations. Google, unfortunately, proved completely useless, giving us no results that didn't involve the word "bitches."

We're posting a YouSendIt link bellow for those who don't already own it.

For me it sounds like he's saying "who gets changed", albeit in a pretty strange way.

I can't understand like a word of the song, besides "Right Before My Eyes," though. And I guess "Who gets changed." I think at 1:58 he sings "the wall gets stacked for a rude premonition" but Goddamn if that makes any sense.
