Blind Leading The Blind

Album: Single release only (2019)
  • My generation's stuck in the mirror
    "Forget about the poor, 'cause I don't like the word"
    I need to know the name of my neighbor
    I am not known if I'm not seen or heard
    And I am afraid of that which I do not know
    So why don't I just ask your fucking name
    Justice just gets buried in a white light
    I heard there was a time you'd call it shame

    So, put your hands in mine tonight
    And I will be here
    When you're crying out tonight
    I will be here

    Your cynicism buys me no more time here
    Imagine my relief to hit the walls
    Running from the weight of ancient labels
    Believing what identity there was
    Well, my generation's stuck in the mirror
    "Forget about the poor, 'cause I don't like the word"
    And I need to know the name of my neighbor
    I am not known if I'm not seen or heard

    So, put your hands in mine tonight
    And I will be here
    When you're crying out tonight
    I will be here

    Let's raise our hands for a moment
    Leave it all behind
    Don't be afraid for a moment
    The blind leading the blind

    So, put your hands in mine tonight
    I will be here
    When you're crying out tonight
    I will be hereWriter/s: Winston Marshall, Marcus Mumford, Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett
