Go!

If you close your eyes, Your life, a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes.
If you just close your eyes.
(If you just close your eyes)

Deceived by my eyes and all I was told I should see.
Opinions not mine, The person they taught me to be.
One night in the dark of vision of someone I know,
And out of the darkness I heard a voice say I'm you.

Inside of me a light was turned on. Then I was alive.

If you close your eyes, Your life a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and, scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there, you'll see if you just close your eyes.
(Close Your Eyes)

Hearts uninspired, trapped inside somebody's dream.
To close to the fire, Yet cold and so numb with the pain.
But the fever is broken, and the river has run to the sea.
Washed to the ocean and saved by a voice inside me.

Inside of me a light was turned on, Then I was alive.

If you close your eyes. Your life a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes.
(If You just close your eyes. If You just close your eyes)

Never thought I would be here, so high in the air.
This was my unanswered prayer.
Defined by another, so much wasted time,
Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine.

If you close your eyes, Your life, a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes.
If you just close your eyes.
(If you just close your eyes)

    You may spend your life in the shadow of another, as christian did with edge, and the jericho, and now once again with randy and sheamus, but even through all of that, live your own dream, despite the harsh truth of reality, eventually, your prayer, your call will be answered.

    "go.. If you close your eyes your life a naked truth revealed... Dreams you never lived and scars never healed. "

    Now, for all the non-believers out there this makes perfect sense. I take this as the only way he can live his dreams (world champion) is by closing his eyes. The scars never healed i can see as not being able to top edge and that being his biggest scar.

    "in the darkness light will take you to the other side, find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes. "

    Obvious tna placement seeing as how he was in darkness in the wwe but saw the light in tna and went to eventually become champion. The find me waiting there could be the title he has waited for and deserved for so long.

    Does this make sense to you?

    "decieved by my eyes, and all i was told i should see, opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be, one night in the dark the vision of someone i know and out of the darkness i heard a voice say i'm you. Inside of me a light was turned on, then i was alive. "

    After this it returns to the first part of the song. Deceived by my eyes and all i was told i should see. At the height of his solo career, around 2005, i can't tell you and even all the hardcore peeps can't tell you how much we all thought christian was going to finally have the world title. We were all deceived on what we thought we would see.

    Opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be. Now i for one am extremely guilty of this and keep saying that he deserves a title, but not once have you ever heard christian voicing those opinions. He was just doing what he was taught to do.

    "one night in the dark a vision of someone i know, and out of the darkness i heard a voice say i'm you. Inside of me a light was turned on, then i was alive. "

    This one can be taken a few ways, the one that pops out to me would be that person in the dark would be edge. Nine time wwe/world champion and (to me) where christian should be. So out of the darkness the voice of the person says i'm you. Could be a picture of edge saying this because it is where christian should have been in his career.

    Inside of me a light was turned on, then i was alive. Since this was made when christian returned to the wwe i can take it as the light was turned then i was alive means the light of the wwe brought him back to take the ecw title. Him being alive was when he captured his first official world title.

    "heart's uninspired, trapped in somebody's dream. "

    At this point we were all uninspired at the wwe's route they were taking christian and the only way we could see him with the title was in our dreams.

    "too close to the fire, yet cold and so numb with the pain. "

    There is no better evidence of this one than vengeance of 2005. A match with chris jericho and john cena for the wwe title. He was so close to winning it but he lost and has been cold and numb from not winning it.

    "but the fever has broken and the river has run to the sea. "

    The fever of not being in the wwe and him going off into the river that is tna changed when his river crossed back into the sea of the wwe.

    "washed to the ocean and saved by a voice inside me. "

    So christian was washed (i hate the sound of that word) back to wwe because he knew that was where he belonged.

    I think the meaning behind this song is that we can't live under the label of others, and can not find peace and passion until we find ourselves, and that ultimately the way you live and the choices you make determine who you really are. I love the quote, "in the darkness light will take you to the other side," it's so profound, and in my opinion it's a way of saying even in the darkest time, the light, or what i refer to as god, will take us and shape us into people of passion, desire, and purpose.

    Never thought I would be here, so high in the air.
    This was my unanswered prayer.
    Defined by another, so much wasted time,
    Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine.

    Pretty much tells how Christian waited for so long before finally got his World Title in WWE.
