Vocalist Kyle Thomas says about the track: “Inside of even the best people is an avenue of darkness. We drown our sorrows. It fuels bad decisions. The spectacle draws us to it like a moth to the flame. When the slippery slope between good and bad becomes a blurred line, it is our challenge to do what is right – otherwise we are all blind. ‘Blind’ is a pounding, anthemic blend of harmonic unease. Cycling rhythms and chants with a standard rock approach, strings grace the foundation to provide a melodic overlap leading into a runaway locomotive. ‘Blind’ is the consummate example of everything HEAVY AS TEXAS has to offer both musically and lyrically.”
