Blind Rhetoric is a four-piece, alternative rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. Blind Rhetoric emerged onto the Baltimore music scene in the summer of 2005. Our first studio demo, Ellipses, was released in July of 2005 and our first EP, Clockwork, was released in March of 2006. We have been steadily building our fan base with a combination of intense live performances and poignant songwriting. We’ve never been about proclaiming our greatness or tooting our own horn. Instead we like to let our music speak for itself. We are all perfectionists at heart, and we work long and hard to make our music as good as it possibly can be. We drive ourselves with passion and dedication. We are a band that matches our music with our work ethic. Music isn’t our hobby or our night job. Music is what we do.

Lyrics

Riot

Written By: Blind Rhetoric

I’m not afraid
Of leading the line
Another day
Leading me blind
Another night
Oh where’s your weight oh where’s your tide

Is everything
Feeling the same
The "never was"
Leaving you plain another night
Oh where’s your weight oh where’s your tide
I find myself
Alone
But the featureless are mine

Feel, fade iron man
When I walk away
Than I walk away

Feel, fade iron man
When I walk away
Than I walk away

Feel, fade iron man
When I walk away
Than walk away

I’m not afraid
Of beating it down
Another face
Feeding me old and tired eyes
Oh where’s your weight oh where’s your tide

Is everything
Feeling the same
The "never was"
Leaving you plain another night
Oh where’s your weight oh where’s your tide
I find myself
Alone
But the featureless are mine

Feel, fade iron man
When I walk away
Than I walk away

Feel, fade iron man
When I walk away
Than walk away

I’m not afraid
To be alone
Down, down, down I fight
A little more
A little less
And the page, page, page
Is mine

Feel, fade iron man
When I walk away
And I walk away

Row love
Row love
Row how long, how long
To breathe, breathe

Vertigo

Written By: Blind Rhetoric

Got a fish and I’ll let it go, sad
Got a vision a hold, my own, might break
And one why could unravel everything

I’ll feed at my own rise, defeat at my eyes
There’s a cold wind in this house
There’s a cold wind inside
And I’m late for, oh late for my life

Oh well what about
Our lot of lows
Amphetamine to my hope
There’s a finite times
The rooster crows
It’s time to get
A move on

Got a hook and cannot let it go, sad
Got a vision a soul, my own, might break
And one why could unravel everything

I’ll feed at my own rise defeat at my eyes
There’s a cold wind in this house
There’s a cold wind inside
And I’m late for, late for my life

Oh well what about
Our lot of lows
Amphetamine to my hope
There’s a finite times
The rooster crows
It’s time again

Face
Off
All your puppets bleed the same

See it
Son
Sold everything away

One
Tide
Wouldn’t take me far away

Oh well what about
Our lot of lows
Amphetamine to my hope
There’s a finite times
The rooster crows
It’s time to get a move on

Clockwork

Written By: Blind Rhetoric

Feel me fall away
Cause I’m too much
For the wounded
And I know it falls on me
That it’s not right
But you’re not right
This day won’t make me

Hold all of me back
For the sane
And fall
For the selfless
And the plain
This free fall
Isn’t so bad
But this mind I
Let it go
Let it breathe
Let it break away
Let it turn away my own eyes

Feel me fall away
Cause I’m too much
For the wounded
And I know it falls on me
That it’s not right
But you’re not right
This day won’t make me

This day wont fall
Far
Fall
Far
A jaded better man would take this night
So bend me back
And feel alive
There’s no one word, one place, tonight

Feel me fall away
Cause I’m too much
For the wounded
And I know it falls on me
That it’s not right
But you’re not right
This day won’t
This day won’t
