I saw this guy go down
Wasn't time for fear
Before his body hit the ground.
(Chorus)
Our vulnerability is all our insensitivity.
Car that hit him pulled to a stop.
Driver hid the bottles.
He anticipated cops.
(Chorus)
Crowd assembled to take a look at death.
Shattered skull fragile body
Blacktop running red.
(Chorus)
People looked bored
Like expecting more
People looked bored like expecting more.
(Chorus)
And sympathy is only friendship's whore, you know,
And maybe we don't know who we are anymore.
Another spectacle, and it's respectable
To take it lightly like another TV show.
So desensitized, so dehumanized
Why stop and think when you can find someplace to go.
We're drowning...
(Chorus)
And it's gonna be the death of us just you wait and see
