    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 will be
    no more turning away?
