"Third Eye" is a song by the British singer & songwriter Emma Blackery. It is the 8th track in her debut album, Villains.

Background Edit

On “Third Eye”, Emma Blackery battles with an enemy, only to realise that they’re both loosing. The song serves as the eighth track off Blackery’s debut album Villains which was released on August 31, 2018.

Written with Maxwell Cooke, the song takes influence from 80’s synthpop similar to other album track Fake Friends, this time taking on a darker tone.

Emma teased the song half a day in advance of its release via Instagram saying:

"this song is wild. WILD. i don’t like picking favourites and usually duck the question, but i think after having the album in my hands for so long… this one wins out. it’ll be yours to hear (as well as the full album!!) as soon as it turns friday in your country!!!!"
On the back of the vinyl album artwork, the tracklist has little messages explaining what each song is directed towards. This song is: ‘For The Manipulator.’"

Lyrics Edit

Couldn't keep this message to yourself
Sounded like a cry for help
Tried to turn me into someone else
Someone else

And it's more than a touch of déjà vu
Cos I know what you're trying to do
I gotta stay one step ahead of you
Ahead of you

Oooh, whoa
And you say I'm playing the victim
In this game we're losing together
Together

And so you twist
Insist
And turn it around
And this
Is it
You're like a machine
Always on and on repeating
So what do you want from me?
And tell me how can you
Break
My trust
If you never had it?
But you'll do what you must
Becoming a habit
It's on and on repeating
So what do you want from me?
What do you want from me?

Can't believe that I was so blind
I won't have you messing with my mind
Cos I'm looking at you with my third eye
My third eye

And you think that you're invincible
But you're not the one that's in control
Cos you don't know what the future holds
You'll be out in the cold

And so you twist
Insist
And turn it around
And this
Is it
You're like a machine
Always on and on repeating
So what do you want from me?
And tell me how can you
Break
My trust
If you never had it?
But you'll do what you must
Becoming a habit
It's on and on repeating
So what do you want from me?
What do you want from me?

Oooh, whoa
And you say I'm playing the victim
In this game we're losing together
Together

And so you twist
Insist
And turn it around
And this
Is it
You're like a machine
Always on and on repeating
So what do you want from me?
And tell me how can you
Break
My trust
If you never had it?
But you'll do what you must
Becoming a habit
It's on and on repeating
So what do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
