lyrics

Look at us now my friends,
We've burnt our candles at both ends.
And used up all we can,
Are we animals or men...

It's not how you perform,
This world is not your stage.
It's not how you behave,
I will never be that slave (again).

Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes...

Look at me now my friend,
I am proud of who I am.
My light is shining bright again,
Still we offer up our hands...

But it's not how you perform,
This world is not your stage.
It's not how you behave,
I will never be your slave.

Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes.
