"Close Your Eyes" as written by Marcus Bell and Mark Long....
I watch you sleep
you're everything I hoped for
But never dreamed of finding
I can't believe that all I've ever wanted
Is lying here beside me
Hold me now, there's a beacon
And it shines in me like gold
Tonight, for it cannot be
Denied in me so
Hold me now, I can see a new horizon
In my soul
So lose control

Close your eyes and dream
you're safe within my arms tonight
And this love will last a lifetime
Everything we need
Is ours under the stars tonight
Every wish is my command
The words that lie behind your eyes
Mean everything to me
So I'll hold you while you
Close your eyes and dream

you're safe with me
I'll chase away the nightmares
I'll shield you 'til the storm
Runs and you will see
I'll always leave a light there
To burn until the dawn comes

Hold me now, there's a beacon
And it shines in me like gold
Tonight, for it cannot be
Denied in me so
Hold me now, I can see a new horizon
In my soul
I won't let go

Close your eyes and dream
you're safe within my arms tonight
And this love will last a lifetime
Everything we need
Is ours under the stars tonight
Every wish is my command
The words that lie behind your eyes
Mean everything to me
So I'll hold you while you
Close your eyes and dream

    General CommentI think the first part, "he shaved off his hair, put boots on his feet and said this was his country" is about a skinhead neonazi kid who fucked up and got shot.

    Then, "there once was a kid from south central LA, who threw up his set all day" is aboot a crypt kid(cuz the blue thing) flashing "sets" or "gang signs" if you will, then he "throws his set" to the wrong guy, who happens to be someone else, a blood. So they fight.... and the let's just all hang out is basically another way to say fuck this violence bullshit and let's set aside our differences... I really enjoi this song, it's got great content and music to it....

    General Commentwhat he is trying to say is if you get caught up in stupid shit like gangs or racial groups and shit you can get your life cut short on you and that you dont need to be a man by doing this type of stupid shit and just hang out with your friends and be your own man. he is trying to say if shit gets to crazy for you just close your eyes and dont think about it.

    General Commenti think the first part about the guy that shaves off his head and stuff is about a guy who joins the millitary but i duno could also be a skin head, what do you guys think?

    General CommentYer i always thought it was the army.

    But i think the song is more about street violence so it being about a skin makes sense.

    General CommentI agree with PHYSCO that is what it is about...gangs and things of that sort. Fighting for stupid reasons. One of my faves though all their songs rock!
