I recorded this song back in 2007 with me singing over just an acoustic guitar. At the now defunct site where it was originally posted it quickly became my most popular tune.

 

I have beefed it up for this posting by adding electric guitar, bass, organ, and drums.

 

It's a kind of APOLOGY to all who ever had—or ever will have—the misfortune of engaging me in an argument!

 

Hope you folks can enjoy it.

 

Be well all!

TUNNEL VISION

 

I

Hello, my friend, won't you sit awhile?

I would like to know what's on your mind.

But I,

read between the lines as you speak.

And I,

insert many things you don't believe

at all.

 

II

Pardon me friend, there I go again;

jumping to conclusions, I offend!

And I,

don't separate the sinner from the sin.

For I,

am tunnel vision's victim once again;

my dear friend.

 

Bridge:

Sometimes I see clearly.

Sometimes I am blind.

Mostly it's this tunnel vision,

messin' with my mind.

 

Living with myopia's

cold and empty stare.

If it lies outside my focus,

it simply is not there.

No...

 

III

How you can endure me I don't know.

You must be blessed with the patience of Job.

It's not

somethin' that I planned to do , my friend.

But I,

am tunnel vision's victim once again.

Mmm...mmm...

  1. Well myopia is definitely an issue for lots of people, many of our friends online over the years in fact… The folk tradition is being served on this cut. Great job! Ya filled this tune out nicely. The idea would be to compare your original posted work against this production and give ya pat on the back, we have lots of friend who do not grow. Bravo.

  2. I love a good argument. For me its not about right or wrong or winning. As far as truth there seems to be 2 realities. The reality in our head and the reality outside our head. The latter is just a field of absolute unconditional certainty that can’t be described beyond a deeply embedded feeling. There is not much to argue about. It just is and that is all you can really say about it. The former (the reality inside our head is very egocentric and creative. For example, is there really a left and right side of the room? Paint it on the walls and then turn around. You see, the truth inside of our head is utterly conditional and can change accordingly. Most arguments are products of our egocentric perceptions.

    Consequentially, it is possible to argue either side of an issue. The challenge is to remove all prejudices and never take it personally or allow ones emotions to take over. Remember. The truth doesn’t care which side of the room is left or right, and it doesn’t care about right and wrong. Such things belong to the reality in our head.

    Oh! By the way. I like your tune. Very good lyrics. 🙂
