Eyes Wide Closed

Verse One:
_It's so dark to you
_The light is far away
_Every day is getting
Colder and colder
_I try to talk to you
_But you just walk away
_Obey the devil sitting
Right there on your shoulder

_How can I get to you
_If you won't let me through
_Somehow I've gotta let you
Know...(2x)_you've got your

Eyes,_ wide
Nobody know
Where it's gonna end_, you lost your
Life, and your
Soul..., Only
God can give..., Your
Vision back again (2x)

Verse One:
_The world is beautiful
_But you might never know
_You filter everything through
Negative emotions
_Unconsciously creating
_More of what's got you hating
_Fightin' a neverending
War and you're the soldier



Verse Three:
_Why can't you see you're wrong
_how long can you go on
_Destroying everything
That has kept you living
_I hope you hear this song
_And learn you can be strong
Enough to open up your
Eyes and see what's missing
