{{Song intro|Dead Again}} This song has a mini-moog beginning and has riffs resembling {{wp|Black Sabbath}} in the '70s and melodies resembling {{wp|The Beatles}}. The second half of this track is doomy. The first, title canto is about a {{Wikt|harangue}} brought on by {{Wp|involuntary commitment}} of his family, while the second canto is about a dog fatally ran over by a truck grieving the dog owner so much that he committed suicide. Then the music of the first canto is revisited for the final 33 seconds of the track.

'''Canto I: Tripping a Blind Man'''
{{Canto|I: Tripping a Blind Man}}
+
Say the word and I'll be healed
Say the word and I'll be healed
+
Opened eyes grease my wheels
Opened eyes grease my wheels
+
Since my vision's be restored
Since my vision's be restored
+
  +
Trip me once shame on you
  +
Trip me twice I'm the fool
  +
Thought it's hidden I've been cured
  +
  +
Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
  +
Turn you cheek gets ripped off
  +
That's why God gave us four
  +
  +
This is how you spend life
  +
Amused by another's strife
  +
Makes me so sad and confused
  +
Someone's pain you leisure
  +
Can't explain sick pleasure
  +
I'm so glad I'm not you
  +
  +
Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
  +
Turn you cheek gets ripped off
  +
That's why God gave us four
  +
  +
Throwing wrenches gave a false sense of power
  +
What started sweet will soon turn sour
  +
You think it's your place to dispense justice
  +
Well I've been sent to judge the judges
  +
  +
God damn love 'cause it's breaking my heart
  +
And if I had one wish I'd see in the dark
  +
  +
Tripping a blind man so easy to do
  +
Tripping a blind man why can't it be you?
  +
  +
You want to play God and I know you will
  +
If that's the case I'll be the devil
  +
  +
Now who the fuck are you to discipline me
  +
Innocence condemned by the guilty?
  +
  +
God damn love 'cause it's breaking my heart
  +
And if I had one wish I'd see in the dark
  +
  +
Tripping a blind man so easy to do
  +
Tripping a blind man why can't it be you?
   
Trip me once shame on you
+
'''Canto II: Cried Then Died'''
Trip me twice I'm the fool
+
Losing his grip of his seeing eye dog's spiky collar
Thought it's hidden I've been cured
+
Panicking, the startled pet ran to the street
  +
Sanitation truck skidding unable to stop
  +
Shoveled up what was left of his canine spot
  +
  +
As they left, the ground turned muddy crimson
  +
Where's my mutt? The victim requested
  +
EMS responded "he had to say bye"
  +
Teary eyed, the old man cried then died, he died
  +
  +
Died, died, died, died, died, died
   
Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
+
'''Canto III: Tripping a Blind Man (revisited)'''
Turn you cheek gets ripped off
+
Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
That's why God gave us four
+
Turn your cheek it's ripped off that's why we're giving for
  +
  +
Patience is divine, the virtue is not mine
  +
Eat your lies, peace is nice
   
This is how you spend life
