In an interview with Yamid Amat, Shakira explained the lyrical meaning behind the song, saying "Why ciega, sordomuda? Because, i know that all sometimes have experienced the hypnotic and catalytic state that we immerse ourselves each time when we're in love. We lose the will and the control of the senses... This song, is a song that born of the reality, of a personal history... But although has a great reality dose also has a great dose of sarcasm and humor...".

The music video begins with a woman, dressed in a wig, with trumpet backings, lip-synching to the song. Soon, the woman is taken away with many other people, including Shakira herself. Shakira meets a man who later dresses as a policeman and they both escape - he is cast as a boyfriend in the video. Shakira hides in a wig store, pretending to be a mannequin, and drives a car blindfolded while the whole city searches for her, blindfolded as well. At the end, the police attack the dance club where the runaways are dancing, but Shakira escapes with the boyfriend. Later, the police find video tapes of Shakira and look at them - some of the scenes are from her 2000 video, "No Creo". Whilst watching, the police tear open their shirts to reveal malfunctioning circuitry beneath.

Shakira - Ciega, Sordomuda04:28

Shakira - Ciega, Sordomuda

Se me acaba el argumento
y la metodología
cada vez que se aparece frente a mi
tu anatomía

Por que este amor ya no entiende
de consejos ni razones
se alimenta de pretextos
y le faltan pantalones

Este amor no me permite estar en pie
porque ya hasta me ha quebrado los talones
aunque me levante, volveré a caer
si te acercas nada es util para esta inutil

Bruta, ciega, sordomuda
torpe, traste, testaruda
es todo lo que he sido
por ti me he convertido
en una cosa que no hace
otra cosa más que amarte
pienso en ti día y noche
y no se como olvidarte

Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

Cuantas veces he intentado
enterrarte en mi memoria
y aunque diga ya no más
es otra vez la misma historia
porque este amor siempre sabe
hacerme respirar profundo
ya me trae por la izquierda
y de pelea con el mundo

Si pudiera exorcizarme de tu voz
si pudiera escaparme de tu nombre
si pudiera arrancarme el corazón
y esconderme para no sentirme nuevamente

Bruta, ciega, sordomuda
torpe, traste, testaruda
es todo lo que he sido
por ti me he convertido
en una cosa que no hace
otra cosa mas que amarte
pienso en ti día y noche
y no se como olvidarte

Ojerosa, flaca, fea, desgreñada
torpe, tonta, lenta, necia, desquiciada
completamente descontrolada
tu te das cuenta y no me dices nada
ves que se me ha vuelto la cabeza un nido
donde solamente tu tienes asilo
y no me escuchas lo que te digo
mira bien lo que vas a hacer conmigo

Bruta, ciega, sordomuda
torpe, traste, testaruda
es todo lo que he sido
popr ti me he convertido
en una cosa que no hace
otra cosa más que amarte
pienso en ti día y noche
y no se como olvidarte
