"Closed Eyes, Open Hands"

We can make believe
We're happy and free
It's automatic when
The money is in our hands
People always try
To look beyond their own lives
But, I know that It wont last
Pride comes before our fellow man

Oh-oh, Oh-oh, Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, Oh-oh, Oh-oh-oh-oh

It's a perfect day
For us to make a change
Forget about the watered down
Mistakes that we have made
And there's a way
To clear our tainted names
Just look ahead and don't be scared
We've got so many choices to make

Take a look around (Just look around)
Where is your hope found (Where is it found)
Is it the ones you love
Or just your bank account?
(We all want to be
The people we should never be
We're buying things we just don't need

It's a perfect day
For us to make a change
Forget about the watered down
Mistakes that we have made
And there's a way
To clear our tainted names
Just look ahead and don't be scared
We got so many choices to make

Paint the things we don't need
To impress those we don't know
Indebted to our own accessories
We hide behind our own lies
But the fake dreams, it can't be
The only thing we have worth living for

It's a perfect day
For us to make a change
Forget about the watered down
Mistakes that we have made
Morning breaks
into a brand new day
So look ahead and don't be scared
We've got so many choices to make

    Lyric CorrectionI believe the line is "we're buying things we just don't need", which fits with the rest of the money-worship theme of the album.

    Also, I missed this song when I first listened to this album, and I'm a little surprised they didn't have it on the main release. It's one of my favorite songs off the album.
