Say the word and I'll be healed

{{Canto|I: Tripping a Blind Man}}
opened eyes grease my wheels
+
Say the word and I'll be healed
Since my vision's be restored
+
Opened eyes grease my wheels
+
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

Thought it's hidden I've been cured
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

Lyrics Edit

Canto I: Tripping a Blind Man
Say the word and I'll be healed
Opened eyes grease my wheels
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?

Canto II: Cried Then Died
Losing his grip of his seeing eye dog's spiky collar
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

Canto III: Tripping a Blind Man (revisited)
Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
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
