Sleeping With Open Eyes

Now the cold war is over and we've laid down our arms
Prayed for peace to surround us, but we haven't disarmed
Just what sort of solution can be raised from the dust
That we kicked from beneath us in our years of distrust


I know there's no way to go back into the past
For what was left there we could never find
I want to put my faith in something that will last
And Lancelot still lives within my mind

Is it nation for nation, is it you against me
If I ease my position will I soon cease to be
If we change the conditions, will we still strategize
How to keep the advantage, sleeping with open eyes

Yes, the cold war has melted, can we live in the sun
If we bask in its warmth, will our work come undone
Will the lessons we learned here all be quickly forgot
As we try to return to what was Camelot
