  • Can you tell me how far I've come?
    (And can you tell me where I've been?)
    Never stopped, knew I should've run but now I
    (Don't remember where I am)
    All my life I've been holding back
    Consider this my last request
    (I never paid for all my sins)

    Open up the sun and burn my eyes
    Open up your arms and save my life
    I know I'll never go home again
    I need a little more, I will take what I can get
    I promise you everything, everything
    Just don't forget me in the end

    Right in front of my face
    (And in between the little voice)
    This was something I couldn't have
    (That just made me want it more)
    Now I know the reason I was built like this,
    Now I know why I am here
    (I'm here for you)

    Open up the sun and burn my eyes
    Open up your arms and save my life
    I know I'll never go home again
    I need a little more, I will take what I can get
    I promise you everything, everything
    Just don't forget me in the end

    Open up the sun and burn my eyes
    Open up your arms and save my life
    I know I'll never go home again
    I need a little more, I will take what I can get
    I promise you everything, everything
    Just don't forget me in the end

    Open up the sun and burn my eyes
    Open up the sun and burn my eyes
    Open up your arms and save my life Writer/s: Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Roy Mayorga, Shawn Economaki
