And something's gotta give
This world's still whispering
It's a cycle in your mind,
It's a faith you left behind.
When you open up your eyes,
All that you see is lies--
The beauty arrayed outside
Fades with the world you'll find

And when it's all said and done,
You know that it's never enough.
You fight for all the things you want,
But you know it's not enough
To keep yourself alive--
All your dreams just fade away

(chorus)
So open your eyes, let beauty reign!
He'll heal your heart, he'll change your name!
You'll have a love again!
You'll have a love again!
The feeling of you breathing air
Will kill your own despair!

Feeling like you've gone too far--
It's not the person you are.
You say you want to change,
But then you turn away...
I've seen this all before,
And I'm praying all for you
And there's a place for you,
For you!

(repeat chorus)

And there's still time to change your mind...
To change your mind

Grace will hand you a flower,
In the moment that you ask her,
She'll take what you have broken.
Just remember when you asked,
"Is there anybody out there?"

(repeat chorus)

    General CommentDespair: A feeling where all hope is lost or absent.

    The title says it all, the lyrics back it up. You can rid of your own depression. This song is about opening your eyes and dealing with the issues at hand, as opposed to closing your mind and sinking in your hopelessness.
