"Tripping a Blind Man" is a track of the Type O Negative album Dead Again, released in 2007. This song has a mini-moog beginning and has riffs resembling Black Sabbath in the '70s and melodies resembling The Beatles. The second half of this track is doomy. The first, title canto is about a harangue brought on by involuntary commitment of his family, while the second canto is about a dog fatally ran over by a truck grieving the dog owner so much that he committed suicide. Then the music of the first canto is revisited for the final 33 seconds of the track.

Lyrics Edit

Canto I: Tripping a Blind Man

Say the word and I'll be healed
Opened eyes grease my wheels
Since my vision's be restored

Trip me once shame on you
Trip me twice I'm the fool
Thought it's hidden I've been cured

Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
Turn you cheek gets ripped off
That's why God gave us four

This is how you spend life
Amused by another's strife
Makes me so sad and confused
Someone's pain you leisure
Can't explain sick pleasure
I'm so glad I'm not you

Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
Turn you cheek gets ripped off
That's why God gave us four

Throwing wrenches gave a false sense of power
What started sweet will soon turn sour
You think it's your place to dispense justice
Well I've been sent to judge the judges

God damn love 'cause it's breaking my heart
And if I had one wish I'd see in the dark

Tripping a blind man so easy to do
Tripping a blind man why can't it be you?

You want to play God and I know you will
If that's the case I'll be the devil

Now who the fuck are you to discipline me
Innocence condemned by the guilty?

God damn love 'cause it's breaking my heart
And if I had one wish I'd see in the dark

Tripping a blind man so easy to do
Tripping a blind man why can't it be you?

Canto II: Cried Then Died

Losing his grip of his seeing eye dog's spiky collar
Panicking, the startled pet ran to the street
Sanitation truck skidding unable to stop
Shoveled up what was left of his canine spot

As they left, the ground turned muddy crimson
Where's my mutt? The victim requested
EMS responded "he had to say bye"
Teary eyed, the old man cried then died, he died

Died, died, died, died, died, died

Canto III: Tripping a Blind Man (revisited)

Patience is divine but the virtue is not mine
Turn your cheek it's ripped off that's why we're giving for

Patience is divine, the virtue is not mine
Eat your lies, peace is nice
