“Running Blind” is a song that can have personal meaning, but also conveys a universal message. Peter touches on the idea of progress, where we are going, what we’re doing with it and what it really means to progress. The song also delves into an aspect of politics – reading the paper and realizing that many seem to change their tune when questioned about things they’ve done, but never seem to really change their behaviors.
Taking a slight change from the norm musically, Peter uses a guitar in addition to his piano to create the pop melodies in this track.
What do you think the song is about?
where we are going, what we’re doing with it and what it really means to progress
What's the space in betweenwhat we say and we mean?And can we live a life that leads to our redemption?
When I try to revealwhere the wounds are concealedall the ghosts just seem to stare in my direction
Tell me where you think you'll findthe best of what we left behind.Tell me where you're running to.I'm tired of running blind
All the things that you sayI could turn other waysand dissolve them in a cloud of some deception
learning it over and overhearing it over and overand doing it over and overand losing it over and over
Then you turn on a dimewhen you're faced with the crime.And then the memory fades with lack of some correction
there's no correction
I'm tired of running blind with no correctionI'm tired of running blind with no connection
