  • With our eyes wide open, we
    With our eyes wide open, we

    So this is the end of the story,
    Everything we had, everything we did,
    Is buried in dust,
    And this dust is all that's left of us.
    But only a few ever worried.

    Well the signs were clear, they had no idea.
    You just get used to living in fear,
    Or give up when you can't even picture your future.

    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open.

    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
    (Walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we)
    Yeah, we walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
    (Walk the plank with our eyes wide open.)

    Some people offered up answers.
    We made out like we heard, they were only words.
    They didn't add up to a change in the way we were living,
    And the saddest thing is all of it could have been avoided.

    But it was like to stop consuming is to stop being human,
    You'll want to make a change if you won't.
    We're all in the same boat, staying afloat for the moment.

    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
    (Walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we)
    Yeah we walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
    (Walk the plank with our eyes wide open.)
    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open,
    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open,
    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we

    With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank.
    With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank, we walk the plank.
    With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank.

    That was the end of the story. Writer/s: Walter Andre De Backer
