Lewis “Drugs In Her Eyes”
After the stellar audio/visual experience of Black Autumn 1993 (and the “Bruce Wayne” video for that matter) Lewis is prime for his next free album, No Daughters Are Safe, with this first single “Drugs In Her Eyes”.
Lewis’ self-produced minimalist sound booms as he darkly describes the true story of a girl that slowly destroyed herself. His words reign even more powerfully to match the subject and at the very least, it’s a tale that’ll reel in any casual listener. The concept is further driven home with news snippets at the end, a technique that always resonates right since the days of ‘Pac. I can see “Drugs In Her Eyes” lifting off to another level with a video and knowing Lewis’ careful approach to visuals, I have no doubt he’s plotting something. Take a listen below, a *Tibs Fav. alone on the concept and sound, and peep Lewis’ haunting words on the track beneath.
YOU PICKED YOURSELF APART IN TOO MANY PIECES FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO PUT YOU BACK TOGETHER AGAIN
THE SUN DRIED ANY SPILLED BLOOD
NOW YOUR EYES ARE OF STONE
I COULD’VE IMMORTALIZED YOUR ETERNAL BEAUTY OR WARNED OTHERS OF THE DARKNESS YOU ENCOUNTERED
I CHOSE THE LATTER..
