The demands made upon you are hard to live up to
It's futile to try and deny
And the things you hold dearly are scoffed at and yearly
Judged once and then tossed aside

Cause they're blind
Yeah they hold you too close to the light and I see what they only might
If they'd learn but they're letting you burn cause they're blind

To the brown-eyed beholder see the chip on your shoulder
The fools don't want to believe
That you're so hard to talk to and so easy to read through
And nobody looks past your sleeve

Cause they're blind...

They only like what they can see and what they don't they just don't agree
If you'll run to me run run
Only like a day with him just one day with him
Then you'll run back then you'll run back blind
[ guitar ]
An old man said to me go and take it easy now
You'll run to me run run
Only like a day with him just one day with him
Then you'll run back then you'll run back blind
