Now's the Time to Face your Lies

A friend of mine in college turned me on to the Guano Apes and their awesome music. I've been rocking out to this song for years now but it dawned on me today that it would work well as an anthem for anyone who has been unlucky enough to be in a relationship with a Narc. Haven't we all said these things to the Narcs in our lives? And, if you are the adult son/daughter of a N, haven't you said the same things to yourself?


Open Your Eyes
by Guano Apes

Hide your face forever
Dream and search forever

Have you ever been for sale
When your isms get smart
Oh so selfish and mindless
With that comment in your eye

Do you think that you are hard?
Really harder than the other?
Man, you're acting cold
If you're not in charge

Don't split your mentality
Without thinking twice
Your voice has got no reason
Now is the time to face your lies

Open your eyes, open your mind
Proud like a god, don't pretend to be blind
Trapped in yourself, break out instead
Beat the machine that works in your head

Will you offer me some tricks
If I ever need them?
Would you go into that room
If I call 'em?

Do you think that you are better
Really better than the rest?
Realize that there's a problem
I know that you can give your best

Have you ever had a dream
Or is life just a trip?
A trip without chances
A chance to grow up quick

Open your eyes, open your mind
Proud like a god, don't pretend to be blind
Trapped in yourself, break out instead
Beat the machine that works in your head

Hide your face forever
Dream and search forever
Night and night, you feel nothing
There's no way outside of my land

Open your eyes, open your mind
Proud like a god, don't pretend to be blind
Trapped in yourself, break out instead
Beat the machine that works in your head

Open your eyes, open your mind
Proud like a god, don't pretend to be blind
Trapped in yourself, break out instead
Beat the machine that works in your head
