CLOSE YOUR EYES

Close your eyes, look away
There’s nothing you can do anyway
Keep to yourself don’t get involved
It’s always been this way

Ignore the stares, just walk on by
Don’t you dare cry
Just be yourself, don’t try to change
That would just be a lie

But even when, I close my eyes
It won’t go away
I feel the pain, can’t stop the guilt
Of just standing by		

He holds a sign, by the road
And it’s hard to see
How to help, what would change
His misery 

But even when, I close my eyes
It won’t go away
I feel the pain, can’t stop the guilt
Of just standing by		

You must conform or pay the price
Play along and make nice
Don’t deviate – it’s a mistake
And you’ll never win			

There are some who are strong
They stand up and fight
They speak their minds, they don’t back down
I wish that were me

Close your eyes, look away
There’s nothing you can do anyway
Keep to yourself don’t get involved
It’s always been this way x2
