CmClose your eyes to the world that you see FAnd open wide to the one in your Fmdreams CmThere’s nothing left that you wanna believe FForeign eyes have been torn at the sFmeams CmYou’d save yourself from a world without sin FYou're born again with a means to an eFmnd CmDrawing lines in the palm of your hand FYour holding on to all that yFmou’ve planned CmThere’s nothing here that is left to be saved FTake a bow to the warrior sFmtate CmYou throw yourself to the perilous static FYou shut your eyes but the death is romantFmic CmYou’ve sold your soul but it’s only a fake FYou’d kill yourself for a piece of tFmhe take CmYou lose your mind in a world that leaves nothin’ FYou're holding on for asylum, reaFmching for air BIt’s all you want, you know you’ll never forget CmYour open arms, they only seem to surrender A F BIt’s all you know, you know you’ll never regret CmYour open arms, they only seem to surrender all thatA matters F No one needs what they think to survive Pulled inside with an appetite blind You feast your eyes on American sex You sleep in shores of American bliss Growing wings from the sorrowless excess Your frozen eyes cut the chord to their last depth You share your young with the wolves of a nation There’s nothing left ‘til you pray for salvation It’s all you want, you know you’ll never forget Your open arms, they only seem to surrender all that matters It’s all you know, you know you’ll never regret Your open arms, they only seem to surrender all that matters
