Open up your eyes
and see these warning signs
Breaking through your heart and all the reason of your mind

Open up to find
your action leaves behind
The very hope that's given for the world to feel alive

oh

Chorus
And the time has come to realize
And see the plan you've been designed for
So face the fear of all unknown
And see the heart inside
So open up your eyes
So open up your eyes

Throw yourself aside
and hear the gentle cry
Of the voice of peace that gave up all to fill the void inside

Give away the fight,
release your foolish pride
the very bond is broken down you need to leave behind

oh

Chorus
And the time has come to realize
And see the plan you've been designed for
So face the fear of all unknown
And see the heart inside
So open up your eyes
So open up your eyes

open up your eyes

Can you sense the feeling that there's more than what you know? (more than what you know)
It's a fire that burns within that only seems to grow (only seems to grow)
There's a price that's given and which only love can pay
And the time is here and now, don't let it fade away

So open up your eyes,
open up your eyes
So open up your eyes,
open up your eyes

Chorus
And the time has come to realize
And see the plan you've been designed for
So face the fear of all unknown
And see the heart inside
So open up your eyes
So open up your eyes

    General CommentJeremy on being a part of this soundtrack:
    I’ve always been intrigued by C.S. Lewis and his writing – I just finished another one of his books called the Great Divorce. So when I got the call I was thought this is amazing, I was honored.

    The character that stood out for me was Edmund. You want to get frustrated with Edmund, like how can you be so selfish, how can you have such a selfish desire that you forget everybody else and their discernment on certain situations. But how many times am I so driven by my own selfish desires, and my own things that I want to do that I forget the warning signals of, hey this could be a bad situation, but I don’t want to hear it because this is something that I want to do, it’s my thing. I relate to him a lot.

    The song I wrote is about opening up your eyes to see the warning signals of “don’t get involved in this, this could lead to danger”. To really see beyond the blinders of the selfish things that we want we want to do, that get in the way sometimes.

    I remember reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as a kid. My mom would explain the meaning of the story, but to me it was a cool story with neat characters and I was enthralled with it. It’s geared towards kids, but I read it recently, and adults can definitely dig into this book and get so many things out of it.
