Step back, think of what a beautiful thing we have to lose
But it's so large, so large
And mind me never losing much of anything, I'm as lost as you
And it's so hard, so hard
so hard, it's so hard

Open up wider
Cause we could use another hero
Open up wider
Cause we are far to comfortable

Cause I'm scared, things look very different since I opened up my Eyes
And it's so wrong so wrong
And what I want is really what I needed and this I can't deny
It's been so long so long
so long, It's been so long

Open up wider
Cause we could use another hero
Open up wider
Cause we are far to comfortable

Is it getting through, there's so much to lose,
the lost and the Lonely are counting on you
To open your eyes, and for the first time,
not stand at attention While they're falling behind

Is it getting through, there's so much to lose,
the lost and the Lonely are counting on you
To open your eyes, and for the first time,
not stand at attention While they're falling behind

Cause we're falling behind

Open up wider
Cause we could use another hero
Open up wider
Cause we are far to comfortable

And everything I said to you, tell me were you listening?
And everything I sang to you, tell me were you listening?
And every word I screamed at you, tell me were you listening?
Cause every letter was for you, tell me are you listening?

    General CommentI love the feedback in the beginning! When we did the same thing with my friends amp, we almost blew it! to all guitarists NEVER LEAVE YOUR GUITAR NEAR AN AMP TURNED ON WITH ALL THE KNOBS AT 10!!!!!

    This (I think) is about people who don't have to do anything to get somewhere. Example: if you're standing at attention, you're not moving, but while you're standing there, everyone else is drifing backwards. Get it? I feel so smart...
