"Eyes Open Wide" as written by and Dinning/guss/phillips....
I wanna see everything
The beautiful colors
Disintegrate under me
As the crowd rushes closer
I wanna feel it hit

Keep my eyes open wide
Keep my eyes open wide

Cancer and nicotene
Whiskey and water
Sleepless and cynical
Dreams to slaughter
I need you to save me
Make me breathe
I need you to wake me
'cause I wanna see
Every, every little thing

Keep my eyes open wide
Keep my eyes open wide

And I know this
Don't wanna live
If there's no point to it
You give me meaning

'cause I'm gonna see, gonna see
Every little thing

Keep my eyes open wide (wanna see everything)
Keep my eyes open wide (wanna see everything)
Keep my eyes open wide (wanna see everything)
Keep my eyes open wide.

    General CommentI tend to listen to this track whenever I'm feeling overly cynical or start losing sight of the small elements that create the big picture. It reminds me of what it felt like to be a child, when all the small details seemed to be so interesting. In other words, Eyes Open Wide helps to ground me and reminds me that if I let the small things slide by, I'm missing life.
