lyrics

DON’T LOOK AWAY

who is that woman standing there - her hair alight in flame?
with nothing but a soul to wear, you’d think i knew her name
is she my only sister? left home for fortunes fame?
don’t look away my sister - i shall recall your name

who is that old man lying there, a spreading ragged stain?
he melts across the sidewalk - a chalk painting in the rain
is he my old grandfather? once strong now slow and lame?
don’t look away grandfather - i shall recall your name.

prophets of the lonely night do pray
its time to see now time to say
don’t look away

who is that child frozen there - bathed in red liquid shame?
the people say its hard to tell, they all look the same
was this my son once full of laughter, in summers endless game?
don’t look away my little one - i shall recall your name.

who are these people stepping o’er the outlines of a ghost?
with eyes ahead and faces masked, a rushing onward host?
is this my neighbor marching past the broken empty lane?
don’t look away my neighbor - you might know his name.

they’ll take you down now if you dare to say
“prophets of the lonely night do pray -
don’t look away!"
