"Blind dumb deaf" as written by William Heggie, Robin A. Guthrie and Elizabeth Fraser....
[Repeat: x 2]
Blind dumb deafen offends
I was never a part of it

At the bosom
Or the breast
Or the forehead
Or the fist

[Repeat: x 2]
Blind dumb deafen offends
I was never a part of it

My mouthing at you
My tongue the stake
I should welt should I hold you
I should gash should I kiss you

[Repeat: x 4]
Blind dumb deafen offends
I was never a part of it

    General CommentBlind, dumb, deaf and I'll find
    I was never a part of it
    Blind, dumb, deaf and I'll find
    I was never a part of it

    At the bosom or the breast
    At the forehead or the fist

    Blind, dumb, deaf and I'll find
    I was never a part of it
    Blind, dumb, deaf and I'll find
    I was never a part of it

    My mouthing at you
    My tongue the stake
    I should welt should I hold you
    I should gash should I kiss you

    Blind, dumb, deaf and I'll find
    I was never a part of it
    Blind, dumb, deaf and I'll find
    I was never a part of it (x2)

    General CommentSeems to be about turing a blind eye, deaf ear, etc. toward abuse in a relationship. This is definitely one of the best dark songs the CTs did.

    General CommentI'm quite sure the lyrics here are "Blind dumb deaf, and I'll find" rather than "Blind dumb deafen offends."

    General CommentDoes anyone know if this song has anything to do with the story 'Deaf, Dumb and Blind,' by H. P. Lovecraft?

    My OpinionI think it's about Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo, as is 'One' by Metallica. Go look it up.....
