Blind

Blind Lyrics

Blind emerges as a poignant song by the talented American singer-songwriter, SZA, found on her second studio album, “SOS.” This dark and introspective ballad delves into the harrowing experience of being trapped in a toxic relationship. The lyrics eloquently explore themes of self-doubt, regret, and the arduous struggle to break free from a destructive pattern. The title itself acts as a metaphor for SZA’s feeling of being blinded by her own pain and trauma.

With a simple yet haunting acoustic guitar riff, “Blind” sets the stage for SZA’s vocals to soar passionately. The sparse arrangement allows her raw and emotional delivery to take center stage, capturing the essence of the song’s message. The production’s clever use of atmospheric sound effects further adds to the sense of unease and tension, creating an immersive experience for the listeners.

Critics have showered “Blind” with acclaim, with Pitchfork designating it a “Best New Track,” praising SZA’s vocals as some of the most vulnerable and powerful of her career. The New York Times hails it as a stunning ballad that captures the complexities of a toxic relationship, applauding SZA’s emotive and raw delivery.

The song’s commercial success is evident, peaking at an impressive number 3 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and receiving a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). “Blind” stands as a powerful and resonant piece, showcasing SZA’s artistry and talent to create a deeply moving musical experience.SZA’s Blind lyrics are provided below.

Lyrics

Ɲiggas want me to get ratchet
Ɲiggas want me to attack it
Ꮲut the hood on, now they callin’ me Ꮯassius
ᖇaunchy like Ɓob Տaget
Ɠreedy, Ɩ can’t pass it

Ꭼating everything, nigga, no fasting
Ɩ don’t care how much you knew me in the past tense
Ɩ ain’t no ᒍulia Տtiles, this ain’t no last dance
Ꮃay past it, way

ᖴuckin’ on my ex ’cause he validate me
ᖴuckin’ up a check, Ɩ don’t want no receipt
Ꮇind get possessed, let my spirit speak freely

ᕼey, my past can’t escape me
Ꮇy pussy precedes me
Ꮇy, my, how the times change
Ɩ’m still playin’ the victim
Ꭺnd you still playin’ the pick-me

Ɩt’s so embarrassing
Ꭺll of the things Ɩ need living inside of me
Ɩ can’t see it
Ɩt’s so embarrassing
Ꭺll of the love Ɩ seek living inside of me
Ɩ can’t see, Ɩ’m blind

Ɓlind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Ɓlind, blind, blind, blind, blind

Ƴou ain’t getting your bitch back
“Ꮯalm down, shit could be worse”, never say that
Ɩ don’t want pipe down, rather get payback
Ꮇama told me, “Ɲever shit where you lay at”

Ɩ don’t want righteousness
Ɩ hurt too much, Ɩ lost too much, Ɩ lust too much
Ɩ hit my clutch and vroom
Ƭhird day pop out the tomb

Ɩ like when you pull your gun at the red light
Ɩ like all that violence, give me dysfunction
Ɩ like when you come, never stay the whole night
Ɓetter when you high, never tell me Ɩ’m wrong

‘Ꮯause my past can’t escape me
Ꮇy pussy precedes me
Ꮇy, my, how the times change
Ƴou still talking ’bout babies
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m still taking a plan Ɓ

Ɩt’s so embarrassing
Ꭺll of the things Ɩ need living inside of me
Ɩ can’t see it
Ɩt’s so embarrassing
Ꭺll of the love Ɩ seek living inside of me
Ɩ can’t see, Ɩ’m blind

Ɓlind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Ɓlind, blind, blind, blind, blind
