#songshare – Blinded

Blinded – As I Lay Dying

If you like drumming…

Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Blinded, blinded by the pain
Unwilling to see, senseless
So blinded by selfishness
Only focusing on myself
And ignoring anyone else
Becoming driven by despair
Feeling trapped into a corner
Losing more and more of reality
Perceiving all the hurt only one-sidedly
Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Losing yourself inside the heartache
Losing yourself
Feeling too powerless to change
Stuck and unable to escape
Incapable to see another way
I need someone to shake me, to wake me
I don't even need full clarity
Just to start the shift from blind to blurry
Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Losing yourself inside the heartache
And does that mean we cannot change?
Or will we always be seen that way?
Will we always be seen that way?
And does that really mean we have not changed?
Or does it only mean
The truth is not in how we're seen?
But in the actions that we're now determined to take
Revealing the new path we chose to mend the heartache
Was it a pattern or a disastrous mistake?
Is the truth in what you see or what I say?
Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Losing yourself inside the heartache
And does that mean we cannot change?
Or will we always be seen that way?
Be seen that way?
Blinded by pain? (blinded by the pain)
And does that really mean we have not changed?

  1. I wish I could say no to this question but yes, I usually pray too when I am feeling like this. Love you Cassa. Nice intense piece with lots of emotion. โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒน

  2. Yes, I’ve definitely been blinded by pain. Physically, childbirth was a doozy; it passed. Emotionally, I’ve been “blind-sided”; it passed too but took way longer. I think mentally we have to challenge ourselves to either lower our expectations or be prepared for worse. Good thoughts, Carrie.
