"Open Your Eyes" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley and Greig Andrew Nori....
Lately,
I'm not quite myself.
Maybe,
I do need some help.
Just my confusion,
Trust my delusion.

Don't you,
Regret you met me.
Go through,
These steps to get me,
Back to where we start,
'Fore I fall apart.

If I could black out,
It'd become so clear,
Standing face-to-face with everything I fear.
Watch so closely,
But still I don't see.
As bad as it seems,
A piece of mind I steal,
An ordinary life,
But consequences real.
I'm past the point of reality.

This isn't me,
This isn't you,
When it's just everything we do.
Till you open up your eyes,
And understand this isn't real.
This isn't me,
This isn't you,
This is everything but true,
Till we come to realize,
It's what we put each other through.

It's like a bad dream,
Coming all so true,
Leaving me with nothing else left to do.
Now so helpless,
I'm not so selfish.
Tell me,
How does it feel to have a face like that,
How does it feel to be replaced like that.
Now so faceless,
Do you still feel?

This isn't me,
This isn't you,
When it's just everything we do.
Till you open up your eyes,
And understand this isn't real.
This isn't me,
This isn't you,
This is everything but true,
Till we come to realize,
It's what we put each other through.

It's hard to believe right now,
This seems to be real.
Still phasing by this time,
So why can't I wake up.

This isn't me,
This isn't you,
When it's just everything we do.
Till you open up your eyes,
And understand this isn't real.
This isn't me,
This isn't you,
This is everything but true,
Till we come to realize,
It's what we put each other through.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure i kn ow what the song is saying; The world is really just a huge illusion. Everything we see is meaningless, except for the relationships we have with other human beings. The singer says he's confused but thinks that nothing else matters but his relationship with others (mainly the person he is disconnected with - probably a girlfriend). "its had to believe right now, this seems to be real" he's saying that its hard to believe that what we see has to meaning and no significance but if you "open your eyes , and understand this isn't real " you can see that what really matters is the people in our lives and noting else. We need to forget other factor that cause greed and selfishness to see the world for what it is: an illusion (only we are real)

    General CommentThis is probably wrong, but it fits with the beat and sounds good. The part after the first chorus under the main vocals could be:

    "You can leave your days without a trace and turns out your life was just a waste now."

    General CommentThis song's great, one of my favourite one the album definetly.
    at this part:
    "It's like a bad dream
    Coming all so true
    Leaving me with nothing else left to do "
    there's vocals behind the main ones, does anybody know what they are?

    General CommentThis song is amazing.

    I think it's about sort of deviating from reality and deeper into your intangible emotions until you're lost. I think that his unreal passiveness or reactions to the real world have begun to show him how easily he's slipping farther from himself, hence the:

    "This isn't me
    This isn't you
    But it's just everything we do
    Till you open up your eyes
    and understand this isn't real
    This isn't me
    This isn't you
    This is everything but true"

    He's finally realizing that he needs to wake up and get out of his dream because it's causing him to drift away from the real world, and he's changed.

    General CommentPersonally I think the last two CDs have basicly been one big song :-/ All the songs have a simmilar or the same meaning, or feel. Not that I'm complaining mind you.

    General Commenti love this song, probably one of my favourite all time songs,

    "Tell me
    How does it feel to have a face like that
    How does it feel to be replaced like that
    Now so faceless
    Do you still feel"

    it sorta seems that someone was replaced and then its happening to that person, and sorting rubbing it in there face that it happend to them and now they can see how it feels!!!


    "It's hard to believe right now
    This seems to be real
    Still phasing by this time
    So why can't I wake up"

    ^ i can relate to that atm =(
