"Open Your Eyes" as written by and Phillip La Don Jr. Phillips....
Looking back I clearly see
What it is that's killing me
Through the eyes I want to know
See a vision once let go
I had it all

Well constantly it burdens me
How to trust, I can't believe
I lost the faith, I lost the love
But when the day is done

Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
On and on we stand alone until our day is gone
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one

I love the way I feel today
And how I know the sun will fade
Darker days seem to be
What will always live in me
But still I run

Its hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will I ever save this day?
Will they ever change?

Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
On and on we stand alone until our day is gone
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Still today we carry on, I know our day will come
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one

Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go

Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Lost the faith, Lost the love
But when the day is done

Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one

    General CommentThis is a song about coming to know that you are not alone in this world and that someone will be with you every step of the way. All you have to do is open your eyes and see that someone is there waiting for you.

    General CommentAn awesome song!

    Will they open their eyes and realize we are one?
    On and on we stand alone until our day has come
    When they open their eyes and realize we are one?

    General CommentI agree completely with sting06. This song is about keeping the faith in friends and always knowing that you can trust someone.

    General CommentLove It! plain and simple. and it's sick how the band members are from Creed. woo! i totally think sting06 is right with that, you need to know that they are always going to be 'friends' that come and go, but there will always be those certain few who stick with you and let you know they're always there for you.. i dedicate this song to my field hockey girls. i love you guys!

    General CommentI'm thinking the song is speaking out against war. We need to realize that as humans, we're all one and the same, and we need to stop trying to wipe out people whom we deem 'different' from us

    General CommentShits on Creed. At last Tremonti has some control over what he gets to play. It's about realising that your past and present lives may be different, but basically you are still the same person so it's no good running away from your past.

    General CommentYeah i also agree with 'sting06' about the meaning. This is such a great song, one of their best, if not THE best
