Close your eyes and try to see
The poor and starving, the poverty
 
Close your eyes and think of this
Nothing left but staring into the abyss
 
Close your eyes but don’t drift away
Think of those with lives in disarray
 
Close your eyes, why can’t you see
The children starving, hear their plea
 
Close your eyes and thank the Lord
For all the things in life you can afford
 
Then close your eyes and drift to sleep
Whilst children die and mothers weep
