lyrics

These days are passing faster
Than we'd care to know
If you blink you'll miss them
Turnaround they're gone and so
I gotta keep my eyes wider than

Beasts have gathered round here
They offer gold for time
They drink the blood of masses
Sure as hell it won't be mine
I gotta keep my eyes wider than

See hurried crowds are passing
‘Neath a light that shines
Staring at their phones not talking
To me it sure reminds
I gotta keep my eyes wider than

Wider than the horizons distance
Wider than my dog-eared persistence
Wider than the long tired face
I wear inside this world’s rat race

If you should see me walking
Wondering helpless blind
Could have been a sleepless night or a
Mountain that I climbed but
I gotta keep my eyes wider than

Wider than the horizons distance
Wider than my dog-eared persistence
Wider than the long tired face
I wear inside this world’s rat race
