With our eyes wide open, we
With our eyes wide open, we

So this is the end of the story
Everything we had, everything we did
Is buried in dust
And this dust is all that’s left of us
But only a few ever worried

While the signs were clear, we had no idea
You just get used to living in fear
Or give up when you can’t even picture your future

We walk the plank with our eyes wide open

We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
(Walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we)
Yeah, we walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
(Walk the plank with our eyes wide open)

Some people offered up answers
We made out like we heard, they were only words
They didn’t add up to a change in the way we were living
And the saddest thing is all of it could have been avoided

But it was like to stop consuming’s to stop being human
You’ll want to make a change if you won’t
We’re all in the same boat, staying afloat for the moment

We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
(Walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we)
Yeah we walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we
(Walk the plank with our eyes wide open)
We walk the plank with our eyes wide open,
We walk the plank with our eyes wide open,
We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we

With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank.
With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank, we walk the plank.
With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank

That was the end of the story
