Did you not see me standing
There only my shadow to
Be seen it’s fair but how could
You miss it in that glare of
The passing moons halo
Did you not see me standing
Amongst those dying when
You said I don’t care and in
Your heart you were lying
Did you not see me standing
Alone and confused but without
A care for I to knew you too
Were crying to be free from
The insanity of commercialisms
Buying
Did you not see me standing
Holding the hand of that child
Trying so hard to understand
And be a man without a plan
While his brothers and sisters
Were crying to be free from
The humiliation of poverty
Did you not see me standing
With my arms open wide unwilling
And able to hide the tears of
Sorrow for there will be no
Better tomorrow and all we have
Is today to make our stance
And sometimes pray that lord
Just help us make it through
One more day
Did you not see me standing
Just before my fall
