Standing alone in a crowded room
He hears it
A voice so familiar, not unlike his own
He fears it
His name being called out from across the room
But he can't see

He's willingly blindfolded starting towards the voice
But each step leads
Into a dance with a different stranger
His purpose he quickly forgets
Each dance delights till the song is through
But the silence between the songs
Reminds him what he'd intended to do

But the voice it knows no time, waits patiently
Can't record a wrong, his past it can't see
And if it takes him forever, it'll still be there
Waiting jealously

He moves towards the voice
More determined now but still can't see
The music begins and he's pulled away again by flattery
Just as with a drug the words purposely inoculate
All puffed up but silence
When the music ends, quickly deflates

Now the voice, though never changing
Begins to sound to him like a shriek
He covers his ears with his hands
Now deaf and blind, he wanders aimlessly
Submerged in the darkness
He's forgotten what he was to be

But the voice it knows no time, waits jealously
Can't record a wrong, his past it can't see
And if it takes him forever, it'll still be there
Waiting patiently, waiting patiently

He cannot see the floor is wet
Nor does he hear the strangers warn
He slips onto his back and lying paralyzed
He feels forlorn

The music begins and strangers whom he trusted
Leave him there
Helpless and immobile lying on the floor
And no one cares
But the voice that once was distant
Sounds as though it's right next to his ear
And no longer the shrieking does he hear

The voice says, "walk" and suddenly
He knew he would
It says, "remove the blindfold", suddenly he knew
He always could

But the voice it knows no time, waits patiently
Can't record a wrong, his past it can't see
And if it takes him forever, it'll still be there
Waiting jealously, waiting jealously

But the voice it knows no time, waits jealously
Can't record a wrong, his past it can't see
And if it takes him forever, it'll still be there
Waiting patiently
