"I Won't Close My Eyes" as written by Terry Wilson, Michael Virtue, Brian Travers, Norman Hassan, Earl Falconer, Robin Campbell, Ali Campbell and Jim Brown....
I won't close my eyes
To the sufferers plight.
In a world full of sadness
I won't turn off my light.

Our cries for justice are shots in the dark
But our strength's in our bite
And not in our bark
It's time to stand
And shout it out loud
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

I won't close my eyes
When I know that I'm right
When I'm drowning in tears
I won't turn off my light.

We're shown no respect
But that can't break our pride,
When our backs to the wall
We won't run and we won't hide
It's time to stand, face the oncoming crowd
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

I won't close my eyes
When the future don't look bright
Though the road seems too long
I won't turn off my light
In a world full of darkness,
I won't turn off my light.
