about

(Snyder/Savarino)

lyrics

Upset in a dream, don’t know how I got here
I hear myself scream, and don’t know who I am
How did I get here, to become so confused
I hand it to you, looking amused

I write in sky blue, had to distance myself
Far away from you, you poison my thoughts
This drug of exhaustion feels good in my blood
Behind tired eyes, mind drifts off in a dream

We are the blind children leading the blind
We are the blind children misleading the blind
We’ll sort it out one day, the noise in our minds
We are the blind children misleading the blind

Have I lost you, are you too beaten down
Have I lost the way to touch you, sensitivity gone
Must I remain a child
Have I lost you, and a way to get through

We are the blind children leading the blind
We are the blind children misleading the blind
We’ll sort it out one day, the noise in our minds
We are the blind children misleading the blind
