Big Eye

I remember when no one listened
No one would wanna listen to me
You gotta keep that big ear open
'Cause all the world will listen for free
Keep all the pressures hidden
Keep all your secrets safe
You better lock 'em all up in the kitchen
I don’t want em hanging off of me
A kid on the road in a place of a man
And all he wants he don’t see
You gotta keep that big eye open
Keep it open, up and looking at me
Treat it all as though you live in the world
And you roll through open doors
Keep on the floor, and know to listen low
Get home and get the love some more
When it said you're going to listen
But you won’t wanna listen to me

And I said...
You're open
You're open
You're open

Hey kid I want you to know that I love ya
Your momma come looking for me
In case she's in that kitchen
I don’t want her coming running to me
Kid I don't want you to think I’m a big bad wolf
There's just somethings I can’t be
You've seen me drink the bottle of wisdom
I’ll let you hold the bottle for free
I know you've seen the bottle of wisdom
And I’ll let you hold the bottle for free
Keep one eye open on the prize today
And two will only get you free
Keep on the floor and know to listen low
Know that I won’t listen to me
A kid on the road in a place of a man
I know your coming looking for me

And I said...
You're open
You're open
You're open

I know your coming looking for me
And I said
There goes a man
There goes a man
There goes a man
