My niggas say the eyes is a giveaway
One look could tell me if you really came to kill me

from Nas – Trust Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

here is an old English proverb that states, ‘the eyes are the window to the soul.’ This saying stems from a passage in the Bible, Matthew 6:22-23.

Eyes are the most important facial feature for humans to recognize emotions in one another such as Joy, Sadness, Anger, and Fear.
If someone is there to kill they may express anger or fear in their eyes.
