"Blind" as written by and Pat/stafford Monahan....
The color of my hair is changing, my skin is soft
Too soft for a man my age, and I am never alone
Where is time taking me
Nothin' is real, this is how I feel
And nothing is wrong but everything takes too long
How did this end up me against you
With everything that I say, and everything you do
Your smile is changing yea, where is time taking you
'Cause nothing is real, this is how I feel
And nothing is good, but I don't mind being blind
If you don't mind doing time
Nothing is wrong but everything takes too long
Hey by the way, when I fell to your
Waste side, did I crash or just slide
Hey by the way, when I pulled myself up
To your waste side did I hurt you or just slide in
So this is how it feels to get a little older
And some would say wiser
But we know what that means, maybe not
When maybe that's what that means, maybe not
'Cause nothing is real, this is how I feel
And nothing is good, but I don't mind being blind
If you don't mind doing time
Nothing is wrong but everything takes too long
Hey by the way, when I fell to your
Waste side, did I crash or just slide
Hey by the way, when I pulled myself up
To your waste side did I hurt you or just slide in

    General CommentTrain came out during some rocky relationships. This song goes with the theme of most of the album.

    Blind represents a relationship headed down hill. The man knows that. He knows that this is not going to work out. Her smile is changing. He can tell she is just tolerating the relationship. He knows she's just "doing time" a term to mean that he knows that for her this rleationship is a prison.
    While she is miserable he is not letting his show. Turnign a blind eye to the problems. As with most of the songs on this album, hoping that things will be better. It's tearing him up. He feels older. It's wearing on him.

    General Commentwell, its fairly obvious what he is talking about. Growing old before his time, also being alone. It is a heart wrenching song that will resonate deeply w/ everyone at one point in their lives or another.
