Look Away
Copyright George Papavgeris, October 2002
I know people like that. I have been like that. And God help me, perhaps I still am, sometimes.

You pass him each day as you walk down the street
Clothes stuffed with newspaper and rags on his feet
And your eyes do their best his eyes not to meet
'Cos you don't want to know what he's feeling.
He could be your brother, he could be your son
But he doesn't belong in your life's master plan
And closed are your ears to what he has to say
Look away now, look away.

Your coffee and paper are there on the desk
The shares and the sportspages you 'll study first
A pensioner burgled was, raped and the rest
But that story you'll skip altogether.
She could be your mother, she could be your wife
But all that is part of some other mug's life
"She should be more careful" is all you will say
Look away now, look away.

Another explosion in some busy street
Yet more infidels gone their maker to meet
More bodies are covered from head to their feet
And religion once more is the reason.
But stories and photographs leave you stone cold
For that is the business of some other God
Your conscience is clear as the paper you fold
Look away now, look away.

You lock up the office and head for the door
The young man still there, keep your eyes on the floor
Though he has not moved since this morning at all
And his face is a funny old colour.
You could stop to check if he's feeling OK
But no time for this, it's the end of the day
Your train you might miss, and there'll be hell to pay
Look away now, look away.

CHORUS
Look away now, look away
And don't talk of misery, pain and decay
But where will you hide when it's your turn to pay
Look away now, look away.
