David Crosby – Homeward Through The Haze lyrics

Words and music by David Crosby
© 1975 Staysail Music (Bmi)

First rain of winter
First fall from grace
It's my first hollow echo
In the halls of praise
How could Samson
I thought he was blind as a bat
How cold he have torn down
The temples like that
And how could little Caesar
How could he know whereof he spoke
When all of his wheels are turning him into a joke

Cause the blind are leading the blind
And I am amazed at how they stumble
Homeward through the haze

Got the soul of a ragpicker
Got the mind of a slug
I keep sweeping problems
Under my rug
And all of my fine
My fine fair weather friends, Yeah
Will have no more time
To make their amends

Cause the blind are leading the blind
And I am amazed at how they stumble
Homeward through the haze

    I don't know for sure but it reminds me of how Alcoholics Anonymous works. We are the blind leading the blind and it amazes me how one drunk (addict) can help another. I've got 35 years of continuous recovery and I can't explain why one person recovers and the next one doesn't.
