I turn on the TV and there's horrors everywhere
I stare at death and sorrow, desperation and despair
I choose not to care, and I forget because I can
Why should I be bothered 'bout the future fate of man?

Endless are the wars where innocents are killed
Children are molested, and the mass graves filled
Leaders are corrupt, husbands beat their wives
People burn and murder, and many take their lives

I know that there are orphans, that people are alone
But I have friends and family so my heart is of stone
I know that people starve, and I know that it's unfair
But I'm not hungry at the moment so I do not care

My life is pretty good, I have everything I need
But if you have it you want more; my life is full of greed
A voice inside me used to say that I should be ashamed
But it is quiet now and I don't know what it once claimed

They say that your eyes are the mirrors of your soul
My eye is not a mirror anymore, it is a hole
Today, I just care about myself and how I live
When so many need so much, how much can you give?

I can't save them all, so why bother to save one?
We only have this many days to spend under the sun
So each bad event that I see on my TV
Makes it clear that in my life there's only room for me
