"Running Blind" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
Can't find the answers
I've been crawling on my knees
Looking for anything
To keep me from drowning
Promises have been turned to lies
Can't even be honest inside
Now I'm running backward
Watching my life wave me goodbye

Running blind
I'm running blind
Somebody help me see I'm running blind

Searching for nothing
Wondering if I'll change
I'm trying everything
But everything still stays the same
I thought if I showed you I could fly
Wouldn't need anyone by my side
Now I'm running backward
With broken wings I know I'll die

I'm running blind
Running blind
Somebody help me see I'm running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind

I can't find the answers
I've been crawling on my knees
Looking for anything
To keep me from drowning
I'm running blind
Running blind
Running blind
I'm running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
I'm running blind
Running blind

    General CommentHaha, you guys are assholes. :)

    I actually really like this song, it's my favorite Godsmack song. Even if it resembles Alice in Chains, is that such a bad thing? It's still a good song. Alice in Chains was an amazing band. In my opnion, Godsmack is too.

    General CommentAiC and Godsmack are *totally* related. on Smack This! when asked about the band name they said they stole it from AiC. *shrug* end of story.

    each band is brilliant in their own right. two of my all-time favourites.

    General CommentSully actually said that this song was written during a godsmack tour that lasted more than 4 years in which they all were away from their families and friends. They were arguing a lot and were almost at the point of breaking up the band.They decided not to let their egos decide, and do the right thing.

    General CommentI think this song has a blatantly obvious meaning. After Sully got the Serenity he so badly needed, now realizes that he change all the light bulbs in his house. He keeps "running blind" around his house so I think he either needs to replace all the light bulbs or rewire the entire structure. He won't be "crawling on his knees" anymore.
