Eyes wide shut like you looking at me

from DJ Khaled (Ft. Akon, Anthony Hamilton, Jadakiss, John Legend, Meek Mill & Scarface) – Never Surrender Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Eyes wide shut is a common phrase meaning not seeing what is evident to everyone else, and it implies that the person is willfully ignoring the truth.

It is also interesting to note, in this narrative this is the first time Scarface involves himself (or his narrator involves himself). This plays a larger role in the foreshadowing of personal revenge which shows up later in the verse.
