"Eyes Wide Open" as written by and Francis Healy....
All these visions in my head
Should've gone to bed before the water shed
Some are live and some are dead
Makes no difference when they're in your head, head

Keep the door, open a crack
So I can see them when they attack
Some are white and some are black
Makes no difference when they're on your back

And I can't stop crying
And I can't stop driving
'Cause the day is dying, dying, dying
And my eyes wide open

Count the sheep jumping the fence
So I can see tinkers when I'm feeling tense
Disbelief hung in suspense
Eiderdown is my own defense

And I can't stop crying
And I can't stop driving
'Cause the day is dying, dying, dying
And my eyes wide open

All these visions in my head
Should've gone to bed before the water shed
Some are live and some are dead
Makes no difference when they're in your head

And I can't stop crying
And I can't stop driving
'Cause the day is dying, dying, dying
My eyes wide open

    General CommentCan't you just hear'em kreepin...wooh, I love equally the rythm & the lyrics! But since the song is about not being able to fall asleep, I think one of the lines should be "Eiderdown is my own defence".

    General CommentInstead of

    'shoot the gunner baby for the watershed'

    I'm pretty sure its

    'should of gone to bed before the watershed'

    makes more sense. =] great song though.
