How come there's so many people willing to suffer?
So they get up and suffer every day
They think they were put on this earth to suffer 
And by god they're gonna suffer

 Until they suffer their lives away
How come so many are willing to say
 There is no sense there is no plan
Yet they will not believe the ancient mysteries
 Passed down through time in to their hands

If my choice is despair or wonder 
On the line between truth and belief 
Do I just let the tide take me under 
Or do I let the fascination 
Come on and rain all over me

Open your mind
 Cause you have been blind  Imagine the answers 
Or questions will be all you find
Open your mind

The grooves in my life were unforgiving 
Over the years I laid them down night after night 
Work eat sleep 
Work eat sleep 
Work eat sleep 
Work eat sleep 
Work eat sleep 
Work eat sleep  Suffocating my delight 
I was dragged into the light 
Into the stillness 
Into a white hot flame of my deepest fears
And when I came crashing through
 Humbled and true
I was better than I'd been in years 
If my choice is end or beginning 
In my perception between death and life
I'll keep on with this message I'm sendin 
You may not know how or when
But don't you want to know why
Open your mind
Cuz you have been blind  Imagine the answers 
Or questions will be all you find
Open your mind
Oh oh oh oh
Open your mind
Cuz you have been blind
