"Open Your Eyes" as written by and Warzone,....

so you say our contry is fucked
let's see what we have
fuck up cops - a fucked court system
discrimination against anyone who doesn't have a lot of money
there's high unemployment
and there's people living in the streets with no food to eat
but one more thing that we have is hatred amongst ourselves
there are scenes - from different cities - they're putting each other down
and bands they want to get paid a lot of money
they're getting greedy - and they're selling out
and kids - your friends - they're talking shit and they gossip right behind your back
sometimes i got to get away from all this shit
so i'll go down by the East River, i'll sit down by the water
and i'll try to figure it all out
why am i alive, and what the fuck is my purpose in this life
who are my real true friends and who will stick by me no matter what!

don't tell me you want - unity
don't tell me you want - anarchy
don't tell me - about your dreams
when all you do is destroy our scene
we have to live as one - open your eyes
can't let this world get us down - open your eyes
all the kids throughout the world - open your eyes
lend a hand and do not run - open your eyes
open your eyes - open your eyes - open your eyes or you will fall!

when you're young your parents they try and tell you what to do
oh no - we've lost control of you - so we think it's time
we put you in a nice reform school
now you're older - more mature - you should be able to adjust
but they way they did it - it's so fucked up
so now you won't listen to society - so it's time for you to go to jail
always remember in this world
you're not alone, cause i know the deal, i've been there too
we were forced through life the hard way
and yes we learned - but for the way they did it
in the end they'll burn!

don't tell me you want - unity
don't tell me you want - anarchy
don't tell me - about your dreams
when all you do is destroy our scene
we have to live as one - open your eyes
can't let this world get us down - open your eyes
all the kids throughout the world - open your eyes
lend a hand and do not run - open your eyes
open your eyes - open your eyes - open your eyes or we will fall!
