"Blind Leading The Blind" as written by and Stewart/jagger....
When the chips are down
And you're blinded on your feet
You're standing up and walking
But you know you are dead meat

The sky is busting
It's near the break of day
You're running out of options
Running out of place

The leaves are cracking
Withered on the trees
Beg you darling
Won't you say a prayer for me
I need your benediction
'Cause I'm a soul in need
I can't sit down much lower
'Cause I'm on my knees

(CHORUS):
Like the blind leading the blind
After the wine, the tears they are gushing
Just like the blind leading the blind
Time after time, you won't let the love in

You are the sharpest knife
You are the finest blade
You are the shining sun
Everybody's in your shade

So funny to you
Dripping honey from your tongue
But you never know what's going on
When the day is done

There is a sadness just grinding in your bones
A twisted trap down which you're forced to go
You need the hand of friendship
To steady up your heart
So hang on to me baby
I'll show you down the path

Just like the blind leading the blind
Asking me why you won't let the love in
Oh, like the blind leading the blind
Only to find your feelings are nothing, ah

Just like the blind leading the blind
After the wine, your tears
They are gushing, gushing, yeah
Just like the blind leading the blind
Just like you'll find
It's leading to nothing
Nothing, oooh, oooh, yeah

Just like the blind leading the blind
Time after time
It's leading to nothing
Nothing, nothing, not a thing

Leading the blind
After the wine, the tears
They are gushing, gushing, gushing
