about

Eyes Closed is about feeling isolated and overwhelmed – like it's you against the world and nobody wants to help. When you don't know why or how something has happened, it's really important that you make the effort to debunk misinformation and understand what's happening before reacting. At first, it can feel like running blind into a situation, hence the title Eyes Closed. Sometimes change isn’t for the best and you need to correct its path.

lyrics

How can I stick it out
Eyes closed
How can I stick it out

Why am I here
Drawn behind the curtains so near
Everything is ordered by time
Everything is ordered by time
And how could I fear
A fate of which I have no idea
Pay the price and answer your crime
Pay the price and answer your

How can I stick it out
With my eyes closed
Watching time ticking up
What do you know
Tryna figure out what I can
There's no hope
So how can I stick it out
With my eyes closed

Did I ever do you wrong
We always used to get along
But now your look's so cold
It's chilling me down to the bone
I thought that you'd miss me
How could this ever come to be
I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared

I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared
I thought that you cared
I thought that you

How can I stick it out
With my eyes closed
Watching time ticking up
What do you know
Tryna figure out what I can
There's no hope
So how can I stick it out
With my eyes closed
