"Just Close Your Eyes" as written by and James Alan Johnston....
Deceived by my eyes and all I was told I should see
Opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be
One night in the dark, a vision of someone I knew
And then in the darkness I saw, a voice say, I'm you
Inside me a light was turned on Then I was alive

If you close your eyes your life, a naked truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

Hearts uninspired, trapped inside somebody's dream
Too close to the fire, yet cold and numb with the pain
But the fever has broken, and the river has run to the sea
Washed to the ocean, and saved by a voice inside me
Inside me a light was turned on, Then I was alive

If you close your eyes your life, a naked truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

Never thought I would be here, so high in the air
This was my un-answered prayer
Defined by another, so much wasted time
Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine

If you close your eyes your life, a naked truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

    General CommentThe band was interviewed about this song, and they said that it was about an evil man trying to redeem himself and do the right thing, which is a theme that's very often explored in the morality play that is pro wrestling. I wonder if this means Christian's due for a run as a face?

    General CommentThat would've made since he was face already. Interesting thought though, but I doubt it.

    General CommentThis was an awesome song that Christian Cage used as his theme when he was simply known as "Christian"... it was an awesome song though.

    General CommentPepsi: You think his TNA music is better? It's a pretty transparent knockoff of "My Last Breath" by Evanescence (songmeanings.net/…) and, while it has a good sound, I can't really get past that.
