  • Open up your eyes and start to take it in
    And then maybe you'll begin to feel like I feel, once again

    Yield to war to murder, to hurt
    Scorch the skies and poison the earth
    And watch the stumbling numbers to partially exit all again
    Time is cracked, the warning sirens have faded
    It's coming, either hell above or heaven below
    The board has been said your belly has been made
    Running lies as you realize you can't eat your mind
    It is nothing

    Open up your eyes and start to take it in
    And maybe you'll begin to feel like I feel, once again

    Race, knees
    Occupy, blind sheep
    Save us! Save us! Save us!
    There's an answer to the answer that has walked the earth
    The first ones to warn, to teach, to lay down their life
    Sacrifice!
    Were the leaders of men, convoluted all sticking fingers
    Of the virus into all that is pure
    And they dig, and they dig, and they dig!

    Open up your eyes and start to take it in
    And maybe you'll begin to feel like I feel, once again
    Open up your eyes and start to take it in
    And then maybe you'll begin to feel like I feel, once again

    We were the hungry, you fed us poison!
    We were the silent and you kept speaking!
    We were the hungry, you fed us poison!
    We were the empty, and you kept taking!
    We were the silent and you kept speaking!
    So don't you, don't you look away!

    Open up your eyes and start to take it in
    And maybe you'll begin to feel like I feel, once again
    Open up your eyes and start to take it in
    And then maybe you'll begin to feel like I feel, once again Writer/s: AARON PAULEY, ALAN ASHBY, AUSTIN CARLILE, DAVID BENDETH, PHIL MANANSALA, VALENTINO ARTEAGA
