The year’s most anticipated soundtrack is still a week away from hitting stores, but previews of many of the songs are beginning to find their way to the internet. One minute of Taylor Swift‘s second song from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack was revealed by Perez Hilton on Monday afternoon. The song, called ‘Eyes Open,’ seems to turn into a rocker.

“Everybody’s waitin’ / Everybody’s watchin’ / Even when you’re sleeping / Keep your eyes open,” Swift sings, before heavy guitars are introduced. From there, the ‘Ours’ songstress belts lines about the transition from childhood to adulthood or — in the case of this story — becoming a warrior.

Swift’s first cut from the soundtrack, ‘Safe and Sound,’ was premiered earlier this year, and the songstress recently performed the song during her current Speak Now Tour leg in Australia. The tune features the Civil Wars, who also have an additional song on the soundtrack. Miranda Lambert and her Pistol Annies also have a song called ‘Run Daddy Run.’ The soundtrack is in stores on March 20, and the movie hits theaters the same week on March 23.
