13 Beatles Songs That Reference Vision/Seeing/Eyes

1. Chains (“They ain’t the kind that you can see”)

2. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (“A girl with kaleidoscope eyes”)

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
