"Open Your Eyes" as written by Jon Anderson, Alan White, Billy Sherwood, Chris Squire and Steve James Howe....
Open your eyes to the millions of lies that they tell you every day
Open your mind to the clever disguise that the advirtisements say
How do they know what's good for you?
Wake up, Wake up woohoo
Wake up, Wake up woohoo
A shot to the head, They're better off dead
Will you wake up, wake up, woohoo
Destory all the land, kill what you can just to make the profits rise
Sell you from birth
For all that your worth
Money spreads like lies
How do they know what's good for you
Wake up, Wake up, woohoo
Wake up, Wake up, woohoo
A shot to the head they're better off dead
Won't you wake up, wake up, woohoo

RUN!

Don't want to hate you
Don't want to blame it all on you
Out of options
If you don't look, I'll force you too
If you don't look, I'll force you too
If you don't look, ILL FORCE YOU TOO!

Wake up, Wake up, woohoo,
Wake up, Wake up, woohoo,
A shot to the head, just so you can be fed,
Open your eyes, Open your eyes,
OPEN YOUR EYES!

    General Commenti haven't been veggie for as long..in fact i'm new at it (2 months) but i love that bands are doing this *cough* silverchair too *cough* when i saw the video i thought it was really cool and then when i saw the poor piggy on the table and the vegan sticker on his guitar the band and video gained like 20 cool points, many more. i have so much respect for anyone whos a vegan cuz i realy wish i could do it but cheese pizza taste soooo good! lol. anyone bands like this kick ass cuz they're getting many ppl to look into what happens to animals before they reach your plates. i'm with gone punk 13, u all should really take the time to look up "factory farming" (and check out other great animal liberating song like 'spawn' by silverchair)
    ok i'm done proselytizing now

    General CommentTHis song is so deep really. Its not just about not eating animals, its about people being blind to eveything that people stand for. We're lied to everyday and made to think that things like killing and eating animals is right because we all do it. The veganism thing is just what they focused on. If animals started to eat humans and use their skin as coats, that would be considered a big deal, dont ya think?

    General CommentI think what rbf4 life said is right. This song isn't all about being vegan and animal cruelty, but about how people let advertisements shape some people's views. John kind of throws that vegan thing in there at the last minute with the "A shot to the head just so you can be fed" comment. Anyway, only half of the band is vegan(John & Brian)...Darrin and Kelly have Taco Bell listed as their favorite place to eat :)

    General CommentThis song is ok but the video is incredibly awsome. When the girl takes off her glasses and she looks like a slut I was like "hell yeah!"

    General Commenti love goldfinger... but their views are farkin ridiculous. you do need to eat animals. you have the right to eat animals. they eat each other if they're higher on the food chain, and uh... we're higher than most animals. this song and fuck ted nugent are just retarded. well, as far as the message goes. that's if this song is even about animals. nobody knows for sure what a song's about except the person who wrote it.

    General Commenti like the old goldfinger, but in a way, i think this is a kick ass song. its basically how society throws everything at you, tells you all the lies, making you believe things are a certain way... but in reality things are all fucked up and you need to open your eyes and see how things really are.
