Thrice – Open Your Eyes and Dream Lyrics

Open Your Eyes and Dream Lyrics – Thrice

Mending broken boot straps
Marching to the sea
Marred by myths of meritocracy
They honor the exceptions
That only prove the rule
Our shambled lives are shadowed by a cruel silence

Open your eyes and dream
Devise a solidarity
Knowing nothing has to be like this

Sweating in the swelter
Swallowing our rage
We break our backs for half a living wage
We’ve watched this film too often
Stop waiting for a twist
Our calls for change
Are always answered with violence
