Blind

lyrics

The street light hit me in the face
I didn’t close my eyes all night
I lay awake & counted down your days
Now I’m begging you to stay
We can make this place as safe
As any other

The dawn light hides behind the rain
You sit here sipping tea
And planning murder
Revenge is a confession of your pain
But you’re digging two graves
Revenge proves it’s own executioner

But what happened to your dream
Where you’d teach the kids to sing
Cos if the children sing that song
The whole world would play along

You tried to drown all your shame
In a string of nameless bars & beds
But the daggers keep stabbing at your brain
You’re crippled by the blame
All your thoughts are of the ones who maimed you

But what of your dream
Where you’d teach the kids to sing
Cos if the children sing that song
The whole world would play along

Now you’ve lost your way
You’re playing a dangerous game
But you could teach the world to see through the child’s eyes
You can help the world to see to see to see….

You’re on a crusade to conquer hate
But you’re guilty of that very same crime
Cos revenge raises the stakes
You try to kill the evil
But your wounds will never heal
An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind
