"Open Your Eyes" as written by Charles Simpson, Alex Westaway, Dan Haigh and Omar Abidi....
Would you change this all if you'd had your say
Waking up in darkness must have been hard
Finding all those moments burned into reminisce
Desperately you crawl and ask yourself

If you could just open your eyes
If you could just open your eyes

For everyone's sake
For everyone's sake
Stay away from here
For everyone's sake
I got left behind
For everyone's sake
Stay away from here

Making sense of senses you've never felt
Clutching on to dust as hope becomes clear
People breathing air in hope of a perfect world
All these chances you could make it all fit

If you could just open your eyes
If you could just open your eyes

For everyone's sake
For everyone's sake
Stay away from here
For everyone's sake
I got left behind
For everyone's sake
Stay away from here

If you could just open your eyes

    General Commentthat one line is "making sense of senses you've never felt"

    I actually find this song pretty sad because I think they are pointing out that the subject of the song has turned a blind eye to whatever is causing the darkness. It's like a plea, a plea that someone will see everything that they see, everything wrong with the world

    General CommentFor those who are familiar with the film, tis song seems to be inspired from a song from End of Evangelion. In particular, the scene early on in which a certain character is in a catatonic state and another is desperate for some kind of human contact and they just can't get them to respond.
