lyrics

Humanitarian love-bombs cut deep
A village bleeds out into the sea
A girl survives, without a family
Tiny dirty hands, just five years old
Receives a simple toy,
Softest thing she's ever held
up to her face,
I crumble

(We wanna see no evil)
So I shut my eyes and carry on
(We all wanna hear no evil)
So I block my ears and carry on
(We don't want to swallow evil)
Well, I shut my mouth and carry on
(Sit around and wait for time to yell)
What side of history I'm on
What side of history I'm on

Of all the triggers of empathy
Is it her innocence I see within me?
Or is it that I'm a part of this machine
Somehow contributing to all of this…

Have you heard of that line that runs through every heart?
Its that shadow of the Gulag, the Auschwitz prison guard
Do you feel no evil? Do you fear no evil?

One day I'll have to explain
How we let the villains run the show
As the grandkids ask the question
Why we caged up those
Who had nowhere else to go...

Well I covered my eyes and carried on
I blocked my ears and carried on
Will I shut my mouth and carry on?
Just to carry on?
