Story

"Spyin' Eyes" (Lyin' Eyes by the Eagles Parody) by Mike Rufo.  With Gawain Mathews (multiple instruments, recording, engineering, backup vocals) and Kyle Caprista (drums and backup vocals).

I couldn't resist writing this once the chorus jumped out at me... 

Lyrics

Well the NSA sure seemed to find out early,
How to open our files without a key,
They didn’t did let the Constitution bother them,
Or the 4th Amendment’s right to privacy.

They just set out on their dragnet,
Grabbing all the data they could see,
And Google, Facebook, and AT&T,
Went right along without telling you or me.

They can’t hide their spying eyes, 
and their smile's a thin disguise,
I thought by now, they'd realize, 
there ain't no way to hide their spying eyes,

They say if you’re innocent you got nothing to fear,
So why not let us in the corners of your mind?
No, you don’t have to worry you can trust us,
Just don’t go thinking thoughts we find unkind.

My oh my they sure know how to scare us,
To convince us to give up our liberty,
But ol’ Ben Franklin got it right the first time,
He said don’t give it up for false security.

Now the government says they’re ready to debate us,
‘bout FISA, PRISM and whether we’re still free,
But we know there wouldn’t be much to discuss,
Without Edward Snowden’s love for his country.

They can’t hide their spying eyes, 
and their smile's a thin disguise,
I thought by now, they'd realize,
there ain't no way to hide their spying eyes…
Honey they can’t hide their spyin’ eyes, 
the NSA can’t hide it’s spyin’ eyes,
we won’t let them hide their spyin’ eyes.
