Alter Bridge

I’m not sure if you have heard of Alter Bridge already. I just got acquainted with their music in the latter part of 2005. And their only song that I’ve heard is Open Your Eyes. I’ve learned from my officemate that it’s the new Creed. Well, they are not definitely like the new Creed however, Alter Bridge is like Creed minus the vocalist Scott Stapp. Alter Bridge is Mark Tremonti (guitarist) Scott Phillips (drummer) Brian Marshall (bassist–original Creed’s bassist), and Myles Kennedy (vocalist). Myles does not sound like Scott. And I agree with the author of this article that he somewhat sounds like Chris Cornell of Audioslave. Alter Bridge remains to be a Christian band just like its predecessor.

Their debut album, One Day Remains has been a certified Gold Record in the US. The said album includes the following tracks: Open Your Eyes, Find the Real, One Day Remains, Burn it Down, Metalingus, Broken Wings, In Loving Memory, Down to my Last, Watch your Words, Shed my Skin (included in the Fantastic Four Soundtrack), and The End is Here. You can listen to their music here. Read more for the lyrics of Open Your Eyes and be inspired by their music.

Open Your Eyes by Alter Bridge

Looking back I clearly see
What it is that’s killing me
Through the eyes of one I know
I see a vision once let go
I had it all

Constantly it burdens me
Hard to trust and can’t believe
Lost the faith and lost the love
When the day is done

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
On and on we stand alone
Until our day has come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

I love the way I feel today
But how I know the sun will fade
Darker days seem to be
What will always live in me
But still I run
It’s hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will I ever save this day
Will it ever change

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Still today we carry on
I know our day will come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
it’s hard to walk this path alone
hard to know which way to go
Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
lost the faith and lost the love
when the day is done

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
