lyrics

Sitting back I watch the world move around me
Circling slowly inside itself
I feel the cycle start to overwhelm me
Watching as it evolves into hell
All these visions of anguish around me
Bruising the beauty that should be life
Knowing all of the things that it could be
Watching it all fall down from the strife

Just look away
Enjoy your day
Don’t dwell on other people’s pain
Just sit there and wait
For better days

Just turn the other cheek
And go with life
It don’t affect you so don’t even try to change the
The harsh reality of what has become
Of our humanity, what’s become of us
What’s become of us?

What becomes of the child on the street with nothing to eat
And nowhere to go
What becomes of the girl getting married
To someone that she don’t even know
What becomes of the man behind bars
Who has not been charged and won’t see a trial
All the families that are torn apart
When war must depart souls into the sky

Just look away
Enjoy your day
Don’t dwell on other people’s pain
Just say a little prayer
For better days

Just turn the other cheek
And go with life
It don’t affect you so don’t even try to change the
The harsh reality of what has become
Of our humanity, what’s become of us
What’s become of us?


Turn off the news
Why would you ruin your good mood
Don’t deal with what lies
Outside of your white picket fence


Just turn the other cheek
And go with life
It don’t affect you so don’t even try to change
The harsh reality of what has become
Of our humanity, what’s become of us
What’s become of us?
