Close Your Eyes


Do you really want to know
Where in the world do we go?
Close your eyes.


Can I ask you to hold me,
To tell a great lie to me?
Close your eyes.


Can I hold you as I cry,
To bring you comfort tonight?
Close your eyes.


Can I tell you that I'm scared,
That I'm worried for you?
Close your eyes.


Just tell me that it's all right,
Nothing will happen tonight.
Close your eyes.


Close your eyes to the trouble,
Rest your head on my shoulder,
Close your eyes.

Shut your mind and stop thinking.
Stop praying to the dead God.
Close your eyes.


In this room we are safe now.
Don't listen to the screams, just...
Close your eyes.
