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
