Close Your Eyes (The String Cheese Incident)

Work his whole life to get where he is Nothing gonna bring him down His father was a man who worked so hard Never could be around His mama always wanted the best for him Mama said make me proud Too much, too fast, too little, too late It all goes round can't get away Close your eyes and look inside And see what you can find Open your mind and take time and learn from the soul Loves his wife and loves the kids And wonders if there's more Looks around and sees his friends All been done before Goes to church on the holidays Looking for something to light his way Living for then and not for now He wants to be free but he doesn't know how All he knows is what he sees So much more behind the scenes Open wide, crawl deep inside Open wide He lost his way he's off the path Gotta keep moving can't look back Where he is and where he was Will never be the same The freedom that he searches for Has no key, it?s an open door The love he needs and hopes to find Has been with him all the time
