Biography

Blind Exit is a high-energy rock band quickly making a name for themselves. Their eclectic style is refreshing in today’s formulaic music culture. With the release of their new EP “Rise Up”, they have established themselves as a real force in the Denver music scene. Formed in 2005, they have played shows all over Colorado, building up a following and generating buzz. In 2007, Blind Exit made a gutsy move and replaced their vocalist, who left the band after deciding to pursue other goals. With that change, a new sound and presence emerged. The new Blind Exit has been extremely well received; making this band one you won’t want to miss.

Lyrics

Rise Up

Written By: Blind Exit

I close my eyes picture a better day
Picture a better place where I can’t erase
I keep pushing the pain away
You hold me down so I cannot rise
Please don’t attack this dream that is mine

I will survive and I’ll strive
To make it through somehow
Don’t hold me down! Don’t hold me down!
The vision in me is right on top
To the pinnacle or bust it will not stop
The pressure’s getting high but I won’t pop
So don’t hold me down!

Now I’m descending back to reality
Your mentality was your fallacy
You never believed in me
Now you’re pretending that you’re so proud
Trying to erase how you held me down

Say You Will

Written By: Chris Evans w/Blind Exit

Mercy, you know I would never hurt you
Look into my eyes and know
I don’t let things go unsaid
You’re fake, like a doll’s disarming smile
Look too close, not to stare
The sparkle fades, there’s no one there

You say just hold me
I’ll stay here tonight

Yeah right! You say you will, but you lie
Surprise, you say you will but you lie
Good bye

Always every time without exception
I get too close you pull me in
Like a black hole forcing me to sin
Go away, but don’t stay gone for too long
I hate you more than I can bear
But not so much that I don’t care

You stay close to me
And hold me tonight

Yeah right! You say you will, but you lie
Surprise, you say you will but you lie
Good bye

You made a mistake leaving me
You’re going to stay this time

Yeah right! You say you will, but you lie
Surprise, you say you will but you lie
Good bye

Through Your Eyes

Written By: Blind Exit

As I look into a mirror I don’t like what I see
An altered version of me
I wish that I could take your place, trade your face to see my cares
I wanna know the truth
And if my heart, it lies
It lies through your eyes

I’m so sick of feeling this way
Please stop the pain, I’m so insane
My mind is growing tired
You tell me that I’m fine
But I cannot see why through your eyes

Please make me understand why I can’t see beauty you see
There’s a prison in me
Please free me from these chains
‘Cause I cannot explain why I’m feeling this way

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Can’t wipe the sorrow from my eyes
Or dry the tears I’ve cried
Can’t see the truth, there’s just no use
I won’t accept me for who I am
Please forgive me if you can

The Battle Within

Written By: Blind Exit

The sun is trying to break through
Shine down revealing such an ignorant hue
Discover all of the unknown
Disgraced by the ripples of an innocent stone
Just follow the light, just follow the lead
Just follow the light, just follow the lead

Let you heart see
These reflections of me

Unveil yourself, I’m looking in your eyes
I know the truth because the journey is mine
The battle within can lead to self destruction
I keep on running to these reflections of me

I am aware of my mistakes
Forever changing, forever saving what’s at stake
Mistakes are few and far between
Forget the past, I see the future so serene
I know what I want, I know what I’ll be
I know what I want, I know what I’ll be

To set me free
Through these reflections I see

Unveil yourself, I’m looking in your eyes
I know the truth because the journey is mine
The battle within can lead to self destruction
I keep on running to these reflections of me
