"Open Your Eyes" as written by Dan Donegan, David Draiman, Mike Wengren and Kevin Churko....
You’re paralyzed with your disguise
You feed on the lies that they tell you
Got to break away from the numbing pain
So calm to the rage that’s inside you
You're hypnotized, demoralized
You'll need every lie that they sell you
Stop channelling, whatever will remains
To sort from what's fiction and what is dream

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes?

You've lost your sense from the emptiness
You do as the headlines compel you
Come home again and let the war begin
Destroy the veneeer that surrounds you
There’s no defense for your recklessness
You stare as the proof lies before you
Why can’t you see, are you afraid to be
Exposed to the demons around you?

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes?

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes?

You will now be running, in a world you cannot hide
Know the end is comin’ for the lamb that's standing in line
Overcoming, there's a fury built inside
It can all be broken, if you’d only open your eyes

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes?

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes?

    General CommentMedia/ News and the negativity in topics that are covered?
    If we keep hearing the same messages over and over and over again, how do we resist them? How can we not believe them after a while?

    It's also crazy because if I knew that David, Dan, Mike or Kevin read fantasy fiction, I would swear that this was based on Ted Dekker's books 'Chosen' and 'Infidel' from 'The Lost Books' series. (I've just read both recently and there are SO many parallels)...

    General CommentI believe in the first verse it's succumb to the rage. Not so calm
