Lyrics

Verse 1
When I feel the world crushing me
I won’t join in the fight so easily
I look the other way
Look the other way
Everything we’re shown on the TV screen
Selling us the ends despite the means
So I look the other way
Look the other way
Chorus 1
Look the other way
Look the other way
Verse 2
Captains of industry
telling us what they think we should see
as we look the other way
Look the other way
Public servants in a public trust
Free exchange of greed and lust
But we look the other way
Look the other way
Chorus 2
Look the other way
Look the other way
Bridge
Out of the blue
they call on you
and you don’t know what to say
A case of denial
avoid the trial
and it will go away
You take the chance
choose the dance
and leave your hope to fate
and you don’t know what you’re looking for
Verse 3
Partners in a shadow dance
moving in this game of chance
just to look the other way
Look the other way
Time lapse photography
Showing me age so plain to see
So I look the other way
Look the other way
Chorus 3
(Look the other way)
(Look the other way) Out of the blue
they call on you
(Look the other way) and you don’t know what to say
A case of denial
(Look the other way) avoid the trial
and it will go away
(Look the other way) and you don’t know what you’re looking for
and you don’t know what you’re looking for
(Look the other way)
