    "What was that tackle about?

    The red mist still descends on Beckham occasionally."

  • I know I'm not the milk and honey kind

    Today I proved it true

    When the red mist falls around my eyes

    I know not what I do

    Please give me back today

    And I won't say the things I said

    Or do that thing I did

    Every minute, every hour

    The replay's just the same

    And I can't stand the shame

    Oh let me start today again

  • I haven't heard this exact phrase, but I've heard "seeing red" or "seen red" to describe the phenomenon.

    Also, I've actually seen red myself. It's very disturbing.
