If you close minded, I call that an emergency
Blind fold yourself as if there's nothing more to further see (ta ha)
Honestly that's absurd to me
If the sky is the limit, then where's the urgency? (me?)
Being close minded means you’re not ready to receive to new ideas, or just don’t accept other peoples opinions.
So the metaphor he uses hear is a blind fold, and when you wear a blind fold, you generally cannot see in front of you.
The blindfold metaphor refers to both the first, and last line of these 4 bars;
- When someone is close minded, they obviously don’t care about other peoples opinions… meaning for them, there is nothing else to see in the world, because they won’t care nor take any of it in.
- A common phrase “The sky is the limit”. This means there is no limit to how much success you can achieve, so if you’re blindfolded, you cannot see anything more, meaning the sky isn’t the limit for someone who is close minded.
Anyway, Joe think’s it’s ridiculous, or absurd, how people can be close minded.
