It's played in the Key of G with 4/4 Time Signature.



Here's the first chart I found online.

G* 
Everybody's waiting
D* 
Everybody's watching
Em*
Even when you're sleepin'
C*                     G D Em C
 Keep your ey-eyes open


G
The tricky thing
                         D
Is yesterday we were just, children
                          Em
Playing soldiers just pre-tending
                          C
Dreaming dreams with happy endings

G
In backyards,
                        D
Winning battles with the, wooden swords
                            Em
But now we've stepped into a, cruel world
                          C
Where everybody stands and, keeps score
     D          
Keep your eyes open


G
Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
D
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Em
Even when you're sleepin', sleepin'
C                      G  
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
D                      Em
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
C              -mute    G 
 Keep your ey-eyes open 


G
So here you are
                           D
Two steps ahead and staying, on guard
                    Em
Every lesson forms a, new scar
                                C
They never thought you'd make it, this far
G
 But turn around
                            D
Oh, they surrounded you, it's, a showdown
                    Em
And nobody comes to save you now
                                C
But you got something they don't

Yeah, you got something they don't
                    D
You just gotta keep your eyes open


G
Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
D
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Em
Even when you're sleepin', sleepin'
C                      G  
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
D                      Em
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
C               
 Keep your ey-eyes 


     D
Keep your feet ready
Em
Heartbeat steady
C             D
Keep your ey-eyes open
     Em
Keep your aim locked
    C
The night grows dark
   G          D        
Ke-ep your ey-eyes open 

G
 Keep your ey-eyes open                        
D
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
Em
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
C              
 Keep your ey-eyes open 


G
Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
D
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Em
Even when you're sleepin', sleepin'
C                      G  
 Keep your ey-eyes open 
                       D
(Keep your ey-eyes open)
                      Em
Keep your ey-eyes open 
                        C
(Keep your ey-eyes open)
                     G-once
Keep your ey-eyes open
