Eyes are open
Eyes are shut
Running backwards
Facing front
You keep squirming
Like a frightened runt

They're forcing you to choose
You can't stop
You know you can't lose
No, you can't be topped
I admire what you're choosing
Guess you know what you're doing

I want you to be everything
You think you need to be
I want you to fail
Your dreams won't make you happy
Nothing means as much as everything
Sometimes you got to bleed

Eyes are open
One eye shut
Why don't you open the other one up?
