Blindness

A moment of satisfaction destroyed in a matter of seconds
Every life form is covered in shadows
Are you blind? Can't you see me?
My mind is going from madness to total insanity

Selfcaged into my darkest nightmares
Trapped in a blank reality
Are you blind? Can't you see me?
Are you deaf? Can't you hear me?

A place inside my mind to hide
From my haunting memories
A place inside where I can't see
I blindfold myself to escape

From reality

I dwell in my own head to escape reality
I cover my vision with darkness for eternity
Am I blind? Why can't I see?
My mind is going from madness to total insanity

Can you feel their haunting presence
The ghosts preventing my slumber
Am I blind? Why can't I see?
Am I deaf? Why can't I hear?

A moment of satisfaction destroyed in a matter of seconds
Every life form is covered in shadows
Selfcaged into my darkest nightmares
Trapped in a blank reality
A place inside my mind to hide
From my haunting memories
I dwell in my own head to escape reality
I cover my vision with darkness for eternity

Are you blind? Can't you see me?
Are you deaf? Can't you hear me?
Am I blind? Why can't I see?
Am I deaf? Why can't I hear?


This song is basically about my situation at the moment, but pushed even farther. It's about being trapped in your (dark) thoughts so much that you unwillingly isolate yourself from the world around you. You basically become "blind" and "deaf", because you are so deep inside your head that you don't realize that there are people caring about you. That's what this is about.

P.S.: It's a deathcore song that has an After The Burial/All Shall Perish feel to it, not the generic kind of deathcore like Suicide Silence or Emmure.

I liked it, kind of made me think about my life.. except it really seems like people are blind and deaf to me, because they don't really see the real me. Cool when someone writes a song that reminds people of their lives as well.

Like I said, it is good, and just inspired me to go finish the lyrics I wrote but abandoned after the first 2 verses.

Wow, I actually was not expecting positive reviews, thanks a lot!
