Songfacts®:

  • Trivium lead singer Matt Heafy explained in a track-by-track video interview: "'Blind Leading the Blind' is me asking people to look at the way things are going, how human beings are treating other human beings and recognizing the fact that we don't need to be doing it that way. I see the atrocities we're committing and I see the apathy in all of our lives, how a majority of us aren't working toward anything, aren't attempting to make our lives better if they're not in the right place. It's a battle cry for people to recognize the fact that they can make their own lives better, and they can make their lives around them better as well by merely waking up to the fact that they have the option to do that."
