about

The first ever song recorded by I Am The Manic Whale.

lyrics

She’s standing stern on the hilltop, looking down at her shoes
The vast vista before her, summer sunlight, sensational sight
She won’t look!

On the cliff above the harbour, offshore breeze in his hair
White peaked waves creep up the sand
awash with moonlight, a beautiful night
He’s facing inland
Facing inland!

Open your eyes, this is the view, it was put here for you, so open your eyes.

Brink of the Grand Canyon, red precipice falls away to the right
Ineffable natural beauty looking through a 4-inch screen
Add a 70s retro filter

They stand on the rooftop with the sun going down
The cityscape in silhouette, so deep so dark so iridescent
They won’t look
Why won’t they look?

Open your eyes, this is the view, it was put here for you, so open your eyes.

Why won’t you open your eyes? This is the view put here for you.

Why won’t you open your mind? This is the truth, written for you.

Why won’t you open your eyes? Put down your phone. You’re not alone.

Why won’t you open your mind? Come on inside. The blind lead the blind.

Open your eyes, this is the view, it was put here for you, so open your eyes.

Why won’t you open your eyes? This is the view, put here for you.

Open your mind, this is the truth, it was written for you, so open your eyes.

Why won’t you open your mind? This is the truth, written for you.

So open your eyes
