On the turning away
And the words they say

Is just a case of others' suffering
The turning away"
It's a sin that somehow
And casting it's shroud

Driven on by a heart of stone
In the dream of the proud
On the wings of the night
Where the speechless unite

And mesmerized as they light the flame
On the wings of the night
No more turning away
No more turning away

It's not enough just to stand and stare
No more turning away?
