  • You can't quit until you try
    You can't live until you die
    You can't learn to tell the truth until you learn to lie

    Can't breathe until you choke
    You gotta laugh when you're the joke
    There's nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes and see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life
    That no one will cry at my funeral?

    I know some things that you don't
    I've done things that you won't
    There's nothing like a trail of blood to find your way back home

    I was waiting for my hearse
    What came next was so much worse
    It took a funeral to make me feel alive

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes and see that life is beautiful.
    Will you swear on your life
    That no one will cry at my funeral?

    Alive
    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes and see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life
    That no one will cry at my funeral?

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes and see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life
    That no one will cry at my funeral? Writer/s: Darren Jay Ashba, James Michael, Nikki Sixx

  • AnonymousI think that this song realy described wat he was and well what he bacame to be but its nice that he thinks of life that way. This is an awesome song. I liked it alot.
  • Andrew from Arlington, OhSixx A.M rules I love this song it will be playrd at my funeral
  • Josh from Decatur, Alits basically a story about how while you are on drugs you cant "see" how precious your life really is and once you "open your eyes" you see it and stop using the drugs.
  • Robert from Lethbridge, AbI do believe that the lyrics

    "Will you swear on your life,
    That no one will cry at my funeral?"

    Spawned from a quote from
    Robbin Crosby

    "When I die, nobody cry at my funeral, in fact let's all have a party; I've lived the life of ten men. I lived all my dreams and more."

    But i could be completely wrong... but i am almost 100% sure that he was really good friends with him, unless i was adding my own thoughts on what he was doing in the heroin diary.
  • Syton from Colorado Springs, CoThis is an amazing song off one of the best albums of all time. No doubt.
