Eyes Wide Open
Gotye Lyrics


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.

Well the signs were clear, they 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 is 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.

"Eyes Wide Open"

[Hook]
With our eyes wide open, we...
With our eyes wide open, we...

[Verse 1]
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 left of us
And only a few ever worried

While the signs were clear, they had no idea
You just get use to livin' in fear
Or give up, when you can't even picture your future

We walk the plank, with our eyes wide open

[Chorus: Call and (response)]
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)

[Verse 2]
And some people offered up answers
We made out we like we heard
They were only words
They didn't add up, to a change in the way we were living (it)
And the saddest thing, is all of it could've been avoided

But it was like to stop consuming's to stop being human
And why'd I make a change if you won't
We're all in the same, boat, stayin' afloat for the moment moment moment

[Chorus]
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
(We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we)
We walk the plank with our eyes wide, we
We walk the plank with our eyes wide, we
We walk the plank with our eyes wide, we
Mmmm hmmm mmm

[Hook]
(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
(With our eyes wide open)

And that is the end of the story

A true artist in every sense of the word... ART AT IT'S FINEST!!!!
I believe that it is not important to Gotye how many people his art reaches... but rather, how his art impacts even one heart and soul.
Thank you Wally, collaborators and crew for ALL the hard work and the resulting beauty that you put out into this troubled world!!!! The Karma will run over the dogma!!!!

Much Peace and Love,

Brian J. Foti

10 years later... this song sounds like a reality for the world.

It is

It doesn't just sound like this but the video shows clearly where we are about to go to.
But Still!! Better think of solutions not of problems. Be good no matter how bad others may be. Love! Never ever forget how to love.
Be positive, as much as you can be. Think of others not only yourself or your family. Be better then you are. I mean I could say so many other things like respect every person. Or I could write down every advise out of the bible or the Quran or another book of Wisdom.
Just be a right man, or woman :) and there Will be a future.
I really believe in this
