Dan says about “Open Your Eyes”:
“Musically, Open Your Eyes is a NWoBHM song on steroids, with a pinch of Scandi Power-Metal thrown in, as it features an amazing keyboard solo by my good friend Bob Katsionis. Thematically, it’s a song about anxiety, despair, shame and all that goes with battling feelings of inadequacy. It depicts how, although in our “inner world” chaos may reign, outwardly we often bear our “stiff upper lip” and don’t let anyone see the darkness within. It’s an invitation for everyone to not only see and greet other people’s struggles with compassion, but their own even more so! However, it’s not all doom and gloom. As in-your-face and aggressive as the song begins, it also has many melodic and hopeful moments that bring light into the darkness. As with many songs on Lost Sanctuary, Open Your Eyes thrives through this counter-play of vicious thrash-metal mayhem and a catchy sing-along chorus.”
