I transcend time
With my words
I'll build a house for you and I
We will live there together
Alone and surrealize
Do we just exist?
And does love persist?
The questions of purpose
And loving of destiny
Our conquest for bliss is
As much hit or miss
As it is skimming
The fat off our beliefs

I walk around blindfolded
Talk
I'm not listening
I read through a thousand books
But
I forgot everything

If grace knows my name
Then I am to blame
Constantly spreading
My fear and my shame
The story exists
It's an option that ticks
But still my tongue
Cannot be trusted
It's so poetic
Like a black widow's kiss
Trembling as my muscles give

I walk around blindfolded
Talk
I'm not listening
I read through a thousand books
But
Forgot everything

I found out the proof itself
Was
Not foolproof
And I leave my mind daily
But
You never see me move
Never see me move
Never see me move
Never see me move
Never see me move

    General CommentFirst off, The Classic Crime is an amazing band and I am so glad that they put out this acoustic EP. It shows a side of them that we didn't see from Albatross and probably won't see in The Silver Cord.

    'Blindfolded' starts out by questioning love and life: "Do we just exist? And does love persist? The questions of purpose and loving of destiny" and trying to decide whether "bliss" is as simple as finding eternal peace or if one has to change their mindset and beliefs to fit their image of "bliss".

    The song shifts to say that they're "not listening" to the criticisms and comments of those around him/her.

    Basically, the song revolves around questioning life itself. What is happiness? How can we achieve it?

    General CommentI love this song, I think it goes really deep into not only a question of how to attain happiness, but also a common religious difficulty. "The conquest for bliss is as much hit or miss as it is skimming the fat off of our beliefs." I love that. He's saying that if all you're looking for is happiness, you're missing out on the whole point of these beliefs. It's not about just trying to be happy.
    He goes on to talk about how "my tongue cannot be trusted" because of his "constantly spreading my fear and my shame" that is, fear of sin and shame of it. Grace exists, but still he can't be trusted to not make it sound like a law or an agreement with God because that's what we so often take into our minds for granted.

    My favorite line is at the end. "I found out that proof itself was not full proof." That is so true!
    All the evidence in the world about the existence or non-existence of God pales in comparison to the personal experiences a person can have. Even if someone were to become religious based on "proof" it wouldn't be real religion. The personal experience is what matters.

    I do wish there had been more stuff like this on the Silver Cord, but it was really good anyway.
