Ace Frehley – Snow Blind

Kissin suuruudenhuulluutta kuvasi idea, että jokainen bändin jäsen levyttäisi soololevyn ja ne kaikki julkaistaisiin samana päivänä. Bändihän oli jakautunut hyvin vahvasti kahteen leiriin. Selviin ja bisneshenkisiin (Gene ja Paul) sekä sekoileviin hällävälisteihin (Ace ja Peter). Jälkimmäiset sekoilivat aineiden kanssa varsin huolella ja ei olekaan yllätys, että Acen soololevyltä löytyy aineiden kanssa kamppailusta kertovan Snow Blindin kaltaisia biisejä.

“It’s so hard to feel right baby
When I’m travelin’ around and you’re far behind
Guy, I wish I could see my lady
Girl, I hope you don’t mind ’cause

I’m snowblind, I can’t see a thing
I’m snowblind, I don’t wanna sing
I’m snowblind need a familiar face
I’m snowblind think I’m lost in space

Lookin’ out my window, sometimes I wonder
Am I ever gonna get to where I’m gonna go home?
Maybe tomorrow, maybe next summer
Girl, I just don’t know ’cause

I’m snowblind, I can’t see a thing
I’m snowblind, I don’t wanna sing
I’m snowblind need a familiar face
I’m snowblind think I’m lost in space

Movin’ around I get in trouble
When I’m feelin’ so low and out of my mind
Babe, I don’t wanna burst your bubble
Girl, you know the reason why ’cause

I’m snowblind, I can’t see a thing
I’m snowblind, I don’t wanna sing
I’m snowblind need a familiar face
I’m snowblind think I’m lost in space”

Steppenwolf – Snowblind Friend

Karu kuvaus kaverista, joka ei pääse eroon aineista.

“You say it waa this morning when you last saw your good friend
Lying on the pavement with the misery on his brain
Stoned upon a potion he found upon the wall In some unholy bathroom in some un godly hall
He only had a dollar to live on til next monday, But he spent it on comfort for his mind- you say you think he’s blind.
Someone should call his parents a sister or a brother, And they’re bound to take him back home on a bus
But he’ll always be a problem to his poor and puzzled mother
And he’ll always be another one of us

He said he wanted heaven but prayin’ was to slow So he bought a one way ticket, on an airline made of snow
You say you saw your good friend flyin low, dieing slow, flying low, dying slow flying low
He only had a dollar to live on til next monday But he spent it on comfort for his mind you say you think he’s blind
He said he wanted heaven but prayin was to slow”
