A song I should think about more often
    #2432310 - 03/14/04 09:00 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

On The Turning Away

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

Yeah, man. I totally know what you mean. I hadn't listened to that song in a long time. Recently, I got a copy of that CD from my dad. I was amazed by how profound the lyrics to that song are. It really made me realize that I could be a much more compassionate and pro active person than I have been. I found it really motivational.

thats what I love about art as a communication form.
If I said to you  " heh, maybe you should be more compassionate "
Its not like I am trying to offend you..yet simply the fact that I am another flawed being makes it offensive.
Yet if I wrote a song or a book you would hear it and understand and apply it to your own..
its beautiful :heart: it is the one
