Song Description

Heart-wrenching song about loosing the one you love, (interpretations left open as to how said love was lost.) Huge, sweeping chorus metaphorically depicts committing suicide via pills resulting in being "asleep with open eyes," (better known as dead.)

Story Behind the Song

Song written for an album that was never released commercially.

Lyrics

Watching waiting/something's gotta give sometime/caught up you've caught fire in/mistakes you've left behind.

Buried neck deep don't/tell me that I'm still alive/another pill to help me sleep/asleep with open eyes.

Gun to my head/shot in the dark just to save you/you're gone.

Tossing and turning you're/not the first to turn and go.
Sit atop this small world/here alone.

Breaking the skin with/looks that could kill.
You can take my life away/you can take my life away.

Gun to my head/shot in the dark just to save you/and you're leaving me again/with bloodshot eyes/yea I cry.

Gun to my head/gun to my head.
words I never said.

Gun to my head/shot in the dark just to save you/and you're leaving me again/with bloodshot eyes/yea I cry.

And you're leaving me again.


Gun to my head/shot in the dark just to save you/and you're leaving me again/with bloodshot eyes/yea I cry.
