"Close Your Eyes" as written by and Christopher Robert/baskette Babbitt....
Where do you go
When you turn away
How do I know
That you're hear to stay

Why do I believe
The promises you make
Because they sound so sincere
Even as they break

And you never felt so far, as when you're right beside of me
No farther then my fingertips, but further than can be
I close my eyes to close you out, you're all I can see
I never wanted more to be anyone else but me

So close your eyes
You gotta close your eyes
Won't you set me free
After all your lies
When you close your eyes
Do you, do you think of me

Where can I run from my memories
When I close my eyes, and you're staring back at me
Screaming in my sleep and writhing on the floor
Whispering "I can't love you anymore"

So close your eyes
You gotta close your eyes
Won't you set me free
After all your lies
When you close your eyes
Do you, do you think of me

[Solo]

Just in case you think I ever needed you
I wanted more for us, to try and see it through
Just one more glance and I'll be gone
Just one more chance to be
Just one more glance and I'll be gone
God help me

So close your eyes
You gotta close your eyes
Won't you set me free
After all your lies
When you close your lies
Do you think of me

So close your eyes
You gotta close your eyes
Won't you set me free

    General CommentNot really sure what this song is about. . . I can see it as a person who's ashamed of themselves and makes promises to themselves to change but always messes up or quits halfway through the change (lies). They change for a little bit but then revert back to being messed up (where do you go when you turn away). Just my poor interpretation. I know it's not that good but whatever.

    also : "This band is friggin awesome!"
