Everybody’s waiting, Everybody’s watching. Even when you’re sleeping, Keep your eyes open.
The tricky thing Is yesterday we were just children. Playing soldiers, Just pretending, Dreaming dreams with happy endings. In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords. But now we’ve stepped into a cruel world Where everybody stands and keeps score
Keep your eyes open
Everybody’s waiting for you to breakdown Everybody’s watching to see the fallout Even when you’re sleeping, sleeping Keep your eyes open Keep your eyes open Keep your eyes open
So here you are, two steps ahead and staying on guard Every lesson forms a new scar They never thought you’d make it this far But turn around, oh they’ve surrounded you It’s a showdown and nobody comes to save you now But you’ve got something they don’t Yeah you’ve got something they don’t You’ve just gotta keep your eyes open
Everybody’s waiting for you to breakdown Everybody’s watching to see the fallout Even when you’re sleeping, sleeping Keep your eyes open Keep your eyes open Keep your eyes
Keep your feet ready Heartbeat steady Keep your eyes open Keep your aim locked The night goes dark Keep your eyes open
Everybody’s waiting for you to breakdown Everybody’s watching to see the fallout Even when you’re sleeping, sleeping
