"Eyes Wide Open" as written by Michael Cook Busse, Barry Louis Collins, Benjamin Melan Collins, Brandon Michael Lee and Ryan Michael Breen....
It's like taking your medicine
Admitting the relevance
Of every experience
You're thanking the elements
In all their appearances
Isn't life just the clearest when
You face interferences with an aim for fearlessness

With eyes wide open it can be so hard to live in this world today
But if you close them you just might miss out
And life will pass you by

You know that
Things will never change
And your life will
Always stay the same

Eyes open
Eyes shut

I need some memory loss
Tell me what's that gonna cost?
If it has to do with attitude I'll pack up and get lost
I'm having second thoughts on going through with this
I should say screw this shit close my eyes and get used to it

Unchanged
Don't waste your life away

Blankness with an over anxiousness
To erase this you must be courageous
Just to face what gives you knots in your stomach
And once you've done it
You're gonna love it
Getting up there and being above it

    General CommentI cant beleive this song doesnt have any comments on it yet, over a year after the song was posted.

    I think this song is about how life can be tough sometimes, that you may be locked in stasis, never changing, but you cant just be passive, because that would mean life would pass you by. Instead, you have to face the difficulties of life, because thats when it becomes clearest, and easiest. ("Ins't life just the clearest when You face interferences with an aim for fearlessness")

    This is an awesome band, and this song in particular is very good.

    & i agree 100% with orderrestored you have to face your life no mattter how bad it gets you just have to fight through it b.c if you dont you'll miss out on all the amazing things life has to offer

    "Blankness with an over anxiousness
    To erase this you must be courageous
    Just to face what gives you knots in your stomach
    And once you've done it
    You're gonna love it
    Getting up there and being above it "

    you have to have courage to over come everything and once you have, you'll be okay.

    General Commentit's sad this is only the third comment on this song. but the song is very true. bad things happen to people who don't deserve them. but you have to just keep living in fearlessness and hope no matter how hard things get. just find someone you can love and trust. i did <3
