    What is the meaning of "Blind"?  I am thinking it is a story about a drug addict but, what do the Angels think?

    Chica-Uh
    Chica-Uh, Chica-Uh Songz

    (Verse 1)

    He left his heart at the counter,
    Met a stranger in a foreign town,
    They say the city was pretty,
    They say what goes around comes back around,
    And then there's a sound,
    What's that sound? That, That's panic ,
    (Uh) Skitsofrantic,
    (Uh) Psychopathic lover.

    (Chorus)

    But through his eyes,
    She look so beautiful.
    But through his eyes,
    She looks so harmless,
    And out of the sky,
    Pain starts falling down.
    And out of the sky,
    His eyes go blind, blind
    His eyes go blind, blind, blind
    His eyes go blind, blind, blind

    (Verse 2)

    Chica-Uh (Ohhh)
    Chica-Uh (Oh)

    He left his face on the table,
    Put his nose smack dead on the line,
    And you can check at the bar,
    He the talk of the town, now, now, now, now,
    His new love can no longer be found,
    Hey what's that sound?
    Listen out for the sound of paramedics,
    (Uh) Just forget it ,
    (Uh) He should have seen it,

    But through his eyes,

    And out of the sky,
    Pain starts falling down.
    And out of the sky,
    His eyes go blind, blind

    But through his eyes,
    She look so beautiful.
    But through his eyes,
    She looks so harmless,
    And out of the sky,
    Pain starts falling down.
    And there ain't no way to run,
    Ain't no way to hide,

    Through his eyes,
    She look so beautiful.
    And through his eyes,
    She looks so harmless,
    And out of the sky,
    Pain starts falling down. (Pain, Pain, Pain)
    And out of the sky,
    His eyes go blind, blind
    His eyes go Blind (blind, blind, blind)
    His eyes go blind, blind, blind
    His eyes go Blind (blind, blind, blind)
    His eyes go blind, blind, blind

    And out of the sky,
    Pain starts falling down. (Pain, Pain, Pain)
    And out of the sky,
    His eyes go blind, [fading out] blind, blind

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Yes he does. LOL

treylover_25's picture

@ JesusIsMySavior oh okay thank you...Trey needs to holla at us on this discussion lol.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@sshorty

I don't recall the person that asked.

@treylover

I believe he said the best person to ask the question was the guy that wrote the song.

treylover_25's picture

What did Troy say?

SShorty's picture

@JIMS

and was that "someone" Tinkerbella?

JesusIsMySavior's picture

I'm sorry Troy Taylor.

forevasongz's picture

@JesusisMySavior who is troy

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Someone on Ustream asked Troy about this song's meaning.

treylover_25's picture

@ SSHorty You right girl Trey needs to break it on down for us lol : )

SShorty's picture

There's some interesting interpretations here

but I'll tell ya who could settle it

TREY SONGZ lol Tell us why you wrote blind? C'MONNNN

p.s. @Tinkerbell how could you possibly have "asked one of the writers"
unless of course you have the numbers and spoken with Tremaine,
Brandon Greene, or Edrick Miles?

you must be sniffing that fairy dust again lol...

@lisaleigh30

I'll just end it here. We just see things differently. :)

@tinkerbella That's makes alot of sense.
@jesus my savior. Second chances yes, excuses no. I know from personal experience that a woman can do nothing but be there to contribute to an abuse relationship and she left him several times, because of others around them she kept going back. Puff daddy really saved her life because he knew that she couldn't see what everyone else saw in him. CB showing it now more than anytime how much of a snake he is (DUECES). I'm sorry, Trey sees with his eyes not his heart when it comes to his friends, he was taken advantage of by his managers for years for this reason. Chris Brown will show his ways again and no one will be blaming Rihanna then, because she won't be around.

I asked one of the writers of the song...he said its about a chick that basically went crazy but her bf doesnt see it....he said that she eventually kills him.....deep deep song

treylover_25's picture

Everyone has really good posts. Thanks Angels!!!!!

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Oh wow really. I like Chris Brown and genuinely believe he is a good guy. I've always got a good feeling about him. When that situation happened I was disappointed. It saddened me that he felt he had to resort to hitting her. I'm a firm believer that everyone deserves second chances. Trey seems to have good judgment and I'm glad he remains friends with Chris. I was told that it is a lot more to that Rihanna/Chris situation.

lisaleigh30's picture

Is it just me or did you not see the Chris Brown/Rihanna incident. He seemed to be speaking for Chris in stating that he was in love with her beauty despite the warning signs of everyone else around him. He also seemed to say no one seemed to care about the way Rihanna was treating Chris Brown until he beat her on a public event night and everything got exposed (Put the nose smack died on the line). She was beautiful and he wasn't willing to leave her and maybe he's still in love with her. I like the melody and believe the music is creative but because of my personal interpretation, I skip the song.I really don't like chris brown and really hope that someday Trey will choose to be a distant friend to him.

Hmm @TreyLover

yes the woman could possibly be a metaphor for drugs

Unfortunately, I haven't heard that 50 track...Imma have to search for that

and yes I would also love it if the man himself would tell us why he wrote it and
the meaning behind it...

treylover_25's picture

@ SShorty Thanks for responding to my thread! This is also one of my favorite tracks on the album. I like that he incorporated this out of the box song with thoughtful lyrics. I really like songs that this for him it shows such depth in the his writing ability.

I really like your take take on the song meaning : ) I totally agree the man in the song could be 'blind' to what the woman he loves really is inside but he is blind by her beauty or he just doesn't want to come to terms that the woman is flawed.

I was trying to stretch the possible idea that maybe the woman is actually a metaphor for cocaine "Put his nose smack dead on the line" or drugs. When this man feels pain, the drugs make the man blind to his pain. Describing a relationship to drugs that resembles an unstable relationship to a woman. It makes me think of the 50 Cent's "A Baltimore Love Thing."

I would love to hear Trey's describe why he wrote this song and get his perspective on it : )

@Thread starter

me and you was thinking da same thing on this one lol...I was about to make this
same thread but I'm glad I kept flipping through da back pages before I did...

My thoughts:

"Blind" is the song that wins the out of the box category on the album. I was pleasantly
surprised by Trey on this one and I actually like the song for the fact that it's different

My understanding from the first verse, is that the man is blinded by his "new love".
It seems she could be somewhat reckless; a "psychopathic lover", but through the man's
eyes he still sees her as "beautiful" and "harmless"...

By the same token, when the woman can no longer be found and he hears the "sound of
paramedics" the pain of what he suspected could have happened is realized
and figuratively speaking "his eyes go blind" because of it...

Verse two can also be read other way: it could be that the woman's unstable behavior leads
him to his own destructive behaviors; to drink and drugs; and his "new love" leaves him
because of it and the last thing the man hears is the "sound of paramedics"

but the outcome is da same: his eyes becomes figuratively "blind" upon realization of the pain
