[Spoken]
Open your eyes
Close your ears
Close your ears
Open your eyes

Listen to what you see
You are blind to what you hear
Listen to what you see
Do not fear the truth beneath
Reach for roots beneath the trees
Listen to the words you seek
Don’t listen to a word they say
Do NOT listen to a word you’ve heard
Do not listen to a word you’ve heard
People are people we live for our own
Live how you think not by what you’ve been told

I've been a fool
Oh I've been a fool
Walking the line with both of my eyes shut
And I'm begging you
Oh I'm begging you

Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard

This world is full of strangers
This world is full of hypocrites
Scratching for their winnings
At least I am one to admit
Oh born in a world relying on gold
I've yet to find someone under control
But people are people and we live for our own
Live how you think not by what you've been told

Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard

The flag waves up above you
For liberty and freedom
And fighting for your nation
Killing a wives, daughters, husbands, son
And your told
That you're being attacked
By terrorist invasions
But over and over again
It is you who points the gun

Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard
Don't listen to a word you've heard

If you close your eyes right now
Try to seek a vision you can listen to
A vision of collisions of what you know is true
You can do what you pursue if you only try to
To open your eyes
And listen to the visions colliding with collisions
Collisions on a mission
Risen from what you’ve listened to
Listen to
No
Don’t listen to a word you’ve heard
Don’t listen to a word you’ve heard
Unless
Unless the word that you’ve heard is a word that you said
Close your ears to words from out
Unless the word came out your head
Or the word was built with your hands
Close your soul to a voice of a man from a non distant land Cause that man has a plan to put bullets through your stand
Do you stand under this
Or
Do you stand over this
Do you over stand me
You must not be listening
Its O.K. I understand
Why

I
We
No he,
Told you
But Do
If you have the words inside your self
Then
Listen to the words you hear
Listen to the words you say
Listen to the words you say
Listen to the words you say
