Opening Their Eyes

If we don’t look back

They may never attack

Still all the same

Let’s stay ahead of the game

*

I am quite sure you know

About the truth in my life

Except from their angle

They brandish it like a knife

*

There’s no cure more pure

Than opening their eyes

A drop of rain wakes

Or sunshine through the blinds

**

If we don’t look back

We can still lead the pack

Still with the blame

We may have to clear our name

*

I am quite sure you know

That the truth is most wise

Except from their angle

They benefit from lies

*

There’s no cure more pure

Than opening their eyes

To stop the pain breaks

Illusion in their minds

*

I’m dedicated to the truth

More intense than the scenery

I’m betting we make it through

I’m dedicated to you

I’m dedicated to me

I’m dead to the world

And I don’t want to be

The cure for the situation

Is for all of us to be free

Free from harmful close-minded vision

And open to total equity

**

If we don’t look back

We will miss out on fact

We all find fame

If we can stake each claim

*

I am quite sure you know

That the truth still can shine

Except from their angle

It seems like a fine line

*

There’s no cure more pure

Than opening their eyes

The path lightening takes

A bright past to the future binds
