See, Not Blind

(parody of "Peace of Mind" by Boston)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story:

I'm slowly rewriting every song on Boston's first album. Why? Well, why not? The album was famous, and I still like the guitar work. This song describes people who lived long ago and got their eyesight from Jesus, and people alive today who, although they can see physically, can't see what really matters.


Now, two were feeling on the road for the route to be takin'
Just outside of Jericho.
And they want to run to Someone and there's no mistakin',
Get their sight from Him who bestows, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Chorus:
They understand about God's provision,
They know where they should seek and find.
People living in lack of vision.
All they want is two eyes that see, not blind.

Now the blind man was sent off with some mud that He spattered,
Go and take it to Siloam.
"I can see!" they heard him say, his dark world shattered,
Worshiping the Lord alone.

Chorus:
He understands about God's provision, he knows where he should seek and find.
People living in lack of vision. He got more than two eyes that see, not blind.

Bridge:
"Take a look," He said. "Take a look," He said. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Now everybody's got the eyes that the Lord has given.
Doesn't mean that they all can see.
Lots of people don't believe they need forgivin',
Take their sight but won't be set free.

Chorus:
Do they understand about Jesus' mission? Don't they care if they're left behind?
No true living without contrition. We need more than two eyes that see, not blind.

Bridge:
Look to God instead! Look to God instead!
To God instead!
