Lyrics

EYES WIDE OPEN Tones Thorburn

Walkin' out in the world, tell me what do you see
Do you see only love; do you see misery?
Open your heart so your eyes can see
what you need to… yeah we need to
Take a look at the lost soul, he's out on the street
he's down on his luck, and he's out on his feet
we cross over the road so we don't feel his pain
but, we need to… we need to...

Tell me why, why can't we see; why do we
pretend to be blind with our eyes wide open
ooooh it's up to you and me; why do we?
pretend to be blind with our eyes wide open

When the towers went down, tell me what did we see?
a mask of religion or a conspiracy?
don't have the truth in our hands, but we do give a damn
and, we need to; yeah, we need to

Now, take a look at the young girl
she's out on the street
she's selling her tricks for a buck and a feed
look deep in her eyes and you'll probably see
what you need to; we need to

Tell me why, why can't we see; why do we
pretend to be blind with our eyes wide open
ooooh it's up to you and me; why do we?
pretend to be blind with our eyes wide open
oooh wide open...

Tell me why, why can't we see; why do we
pretend to be blind with our eyes wide open
ooooh it's up to you and me; why do we?
pretend to be blind with our eyes wide open

eyes wide open
eyes wide open
wide open

open our eyes.
