Music Monday – The Light That Blinds by Shadows Fall

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! For this week’s song, Alex has chosen the song again, and he has chosen The Light That Blinds by Shadows Fall.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.

The Light That Blinds by Shadows Fall

The Light That Blinds features on Shadows Fall’s 2004 album, The War Within. The song was released as the first single from the album, and also appears on the video game Guitar Hero II.


A crack forms in the foundation
Fault line through your defenses
Illuminating the essence
Once clouded by a myth

Store bought conformity
Force-fed duality, I warp reality

The comfort that you will find,
As you remain hidden.
The light betrays,
casting your true self away,
They remain blinded.

As Vanity possesses me
I am turning further away
Gripped by a belief in empty words
Driven by a need to prove

The shell may wither
But the fire burns eternal

You hide behind
The light that blinds

Will never find
What burns inside
You remain blind
Behind the light
