Close your eyes to what you can't imagine
When people are trying to picture something that may be challenging to do or think about, they close their eyes to help them concentrate better.
For the “Super Rich” everything you can imagine is already in front of you. It’s another way of saying you already have everything you CAN imagine.
These kids can’t understand the challenges facing people who are less wealthy because for their entire lives they have known nothing but luxury. They close their eyes to the needs of the less fortunate, becoming self-centered and taking their enormous wealth for granted.
It also means that the ‘non-rich’ are also unable to imagine the lives that these rich kids lead. We are not able to understand what they call “problems”.
Therefore we have to close our eyes to concentrate on the challenges that THEY face, such as a lack of nurturing from would-be authority figures. Possibility that Earl’s first line is a foreshadowing to the death in Frank’s second verse,“Close your eyes” and “What you can’t imagine” can both be to references to death.
