This life's not like you wanted it His eyes, I can see again, I need you here In your mind nobody's listening It's your right not to feel again, just breathe again
[Chorus 1]: Time after time, I walk the fine line Something keeps bringing me back Time after time, I'm going in blind I don't know which way I need to go
Feels like your world is caving in And I cry, failing to understand, I wish I can It's alright if you're missing him In his eyes you can live again, free within
[Chorus 2]: Time after time, I walk the fine line Something keeps bringing me back Time after time, I can't see the signs I don't know which way I need to go
Do all these roads lead back to you? I don't know which way I need to go One day, some day...
Song Description: 'The lyrical inspiration of 'Going In Blind' came late the last night of our studio session in Knoxville. We had finished one song and had a rough music sketch of another. We thought we were finished and would be heading home early in the morning until one of those moments happened. Our inspiration walked through the door. A good friend and neighbor of our producer Travis Wyrick stopped by the studio, for what I have no idea. I was on the phone at the time and she was probably there no more than a minute. I think she said hello to the guys, smiled at me and then left. I walked back into the studio and the guys were continuing a conversation we had a few days earlier. Travis was telling us about his friends who had lost their child to a crime so evil I couldn't even begin to explain. That's how it started; none of us had an 'Explanation'. All of us in the room were husbands, fathers, men of faith and spiritual guys who overall believe in the 'Power of Good'. At that moment, not one of us could come up with an explanation. We were speechless and quiet. How do you tell this woman that everything is going to be alright? How do I tell her God has everything in control and truly believe it myself? Telling her I understand would make me a liar! Don't get me wrong, I believe in God. I believe in this faith that has saved my life and I would willingly lay my life down for what I believe is the truth. Just don't ask me to do the same for one of my babies. I don't think I could.
Everything you believe in and everything you know to be true can be tested in one single second, the second your child is taken away from you. What do you say to that person? I wish I could say everything is going to be alright. I want to tell you that God has everything in control. And like you, I want to understand. What an amazing person this woman is to have walked past me and smiled even though I had no idea what she has been through. One smile of love is more encouraging than a million words. I have been encouraged to walk this fine line of life even though at times I might not know exactly where I am going. Even though the road gets rough, if we walk them in LOVE, we might actually get to where we need to be.' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)
