Dashboard Confessional - "Open My Eyes"

This sums up every single entity of every single person, experience, moment and everything of the last (almost) 33 years of my life.
ALL  of it.

I took a beatin', hell I took some bad onesJust tryin' to hold this thing straightIt's hard work, believin'You win some, you lose someWhile watchin' your work go to wasteDon't know when to start runnin'Don't know if I'm done inOr whether to pull you in tightWhen you're this deep in somethin'Can be certain what's comin'But I got this cold feelin' I'm right
So if you know something, I don'tWon't you please, please, open my eyesOpen my eyesOpen my eyes
I dragged some dirt inI know that we both didWe dragged it all over the floorFrom dancing and turningTo pacing and worryingThere's wear deep in every boardThere were two, now there's oneDown from so much to noneAt some point somebody got tiredIs it easy for someTo know what's to be doneTo make it or only keep trying
So if you know something, I don'tWon't you please, please, open my eyesOpen my eyesOpen my eyes
I would stare at myself in the mirrorIf I thought that I had any answersHell finding my way just by the failureOh so far we can see clear
So if you know something, I don'tIf you know something, I don'tWon't you please, please, open my eyesOpen my eyesOpen my eyesOpen my eyesOpen my eyes
If you know something, I don'tWon't you please, pleaseWon't you please, please, open your eyes
