about

A solo, acoustic-ish demo of "Blinders," which was later recorded as a full-band jam for The Throat Is Bent.

lyrics

None of your friends are at your show
The lights have gone on and they’ve gone home
It's over, you know....
There’s no one to hold you down
And keep you in the throes

It’s not your fault
You’re not the only one who’s left out in the cold
Where nobody knows, and no one gets home
No one gets home alive

And after a while, you get so stick of waiting
You stay and you smile
But you can't shake the hope that you won't have to go it alone
With no one

But how will you survive
Another night at home taking shots at yourself and your kind
And all the time you wait and see and skip like a record
You’re old enough to be strong
But you want to belong to somebody’s eyes

It gets better – get back, you’re on your own
You won’t listen to anyone who says
“You don’t want someone to go where you won’t”

And after a while you get so sentimental
You’re so sentimental
You’re waiting for someone to call
Nobody’s home

And when the word comes down
You feel like you’ve heard it before
You’ve been sad since you started to get what you want
And it’s not what you want anymore

The last sight of the light behind your eyes
