"Blind" as written by and Trever M Keith....
What if I'm right and you are wrong?
What if you knew it all along?
What if I figured out that I did not belong?

What if it always bothered me?
What if I never did believe?
Would it be wrong if I decided I should leave?

If I pretended I was blind
And struck it from my mind
Would it still be there?
What if I'd do anything to make it seem all right
It's all right

What if it's all inside my head?
What if those words were never said?
Would it be easier if I could just forget?

What if I didn't run away?
Could it be any other way?
Would it be wrong if I decided I should stay?

    I think the above verse refers to a situation in a relationship that seriously put the relationship in jeopardy. Perhaps Trever was inspired by a girlfriend that cheated on him...

    General CommentI saw this song performed live at Warped tour yesterday in Vancouver....it was the best song that they did. It got the entire crowd singing, and they were really into the music. I love this song... I think he's talking about a relationship he's having where they're having problems communicating.

    General CommentI doubt this is what he had in mind when he wrote it, but this is what it means to me:

    I grew up in a Mormon family, and when I was around 12-13 I had serious doubts about whether what I was told in church was true, and to me this song goes perfectly with doubting and eventually leaving my religion.

    Song MeaningThe song is called blind, as in blind faith. He the author has now discovered something that has proven what he used to blindly believes to be true, to be not true. This could be anything, religion, a relationship, a friendship, someones motivation, my bet is this is a relationship. The other person knew it all along, this is key, as to the fact that they have been leading him on. Also there is a community feeling whether that is family, religion or group, he just found out that he doesn't belong.

    "If I pretended I was blind
    And struck it from my mind
    Would it still be there?
    What if I'd do anything to make it seem all right
    It's all right"

    He want's it to be true so badly that he'd do anything to make it true, and he is almost pleading with himself or the universe, would it be wrong if I decided I should stay? As in, would it be wrong to just pretend to be blind and just believe a lie.

    I resonate with this song strongly, I suggest reading the book, "wool". Also with my religious background (ex-mormon) I feel this strongly, like the kid who pines after a belief in Santa Claus. Very Holden Caulfield in that he just found out the whole world is phony.

    General Commentrthis song is great. the song is an anthem; the kind of songs that face to face are notorious for. the first two verses are perticularly good.
