If you hide your face
you won't see
suffering
look away
they brought it on themselves, surely
if they really truly behaved
if they would think more positively
if they believed in the Right God
they would not suffer

If you turn your face away
you can say
weren't they noble
weren't they perfect
if only I had known

that death would take her so soon
I could have helped more
I wish I'd known

and the people who were there
look at you with their dead eyes
they don't agree nor disagree

they know
they know
they know
God knows

that you turned your face away
