"Open" as written by Robin Hannibal Moelsted Braun and Mike Milosh....
You're an angel with your wings broken,
wearing sandals that I tripped in.
You're a holiday already taken,
a cocktail that's stirred never shaken.

Your heads in overload.
You've reached your threshold
and you're about to explode.

Open your eyes. Just say what you want to say?
Open your eyes, you see yours isn't the only way .
Open your eyes. To you everyone is blind.
Open your eyes and your mind.

You're like a hand gun that's fully loaded
making idle threats of violence.

Your heads in overload.
You've reached your threshold
and you're about to explode.

Open your eyes. You take what you want for free,
Open your eyes. and you see what you want to see.
Open your eyes. To you everyone is blind.
Open your eyes and your mind.

Open your eyes. Just say what you want to say?
Open your eyes, you see yours isn't the only way .
Open your eyes. Do you really think I'm blind?
Open your eyes and your mind.
Open your mind.
Open your eyes. and you see what you want to see.
Open your eyes. To you everyone is blind.
Open your eyes and your mind.

Open your eyes. Just say what you want to say?
Open your eyes, you see yours isn't the only way .
Open your eyes. Do you really think I'm blind?
Open your eyes and your mind.
Open your mind.

    General CommentI think this is about someone who has held onto an unpopular, outdated viewpoint for most of their lives. No one knows why they cling to it, and the reason is irrelevant. They're someone whose ideas may have been respected at one time, but now they're mostly discredited, maybe even referred to as a "has-been".

    It seems like they're starting to reach the point where they're growing to realize that this viewpoint they hold onto so tenaciously is a dead-end street, yet they've clung to it for so long, it seems like it's the only way they know how to live. The chorus encourages them to open their eyes (and mind) and see that there are other viewpoints they can embrace without losing who they are in the process.
