  1. i've walked these streets
    a virtual stage
    it seemed to me
    make up on their faces
    actors took their
    places next to me

    i've walked these streets
    in a carnival
    of sights to see
    all the cheap thrill seekers
    the vendors & the dealers
    they crowded around me

    have i been blind
    have i been lost
    inside myself and
    my own mind
    hypnotized
    mesmerized
    by what my eyes have seen?

    i've walked these streets
    in a spectacle of wealth & poverty
    in the diamond market
    the scarlet welcome carpet
    that they just rolled out for me

    i've walked these streets
    in the mad house asylum
    they can be
    where a wild eyed misfit prophet
    on a traffic island stopped
    and he raved of saving me

    have i been blind
    have i been lost
    inside myself and
    my own mind
    hypnotized
    mesmerized
    by what my eyes have seen?

    have i been wrong
    have i been wise
    to shut my eyes
    and play along
    hypnotized
    paralyzed
    by what my eyes have found
    by what my eyes have seen
    what they have seen?

    have i been blind
    have i been lost
    have i been wrong
    have i been wise
    have i been strong
    have i been
    hypnotized
    mesmerized
    by what my eyes have found
    in that great street carnival
    in that carnival?
