Looking down at my reflection
In the puddle at my feet
Things don't seem so real down there
Or maybe I don't see

I see no starvation
I don't see any pain
I see myself not helping
Just a loner in the rain

Looking down at my reflection
In the puddle in the ground
Things are getting clearer now
I can see a thunder cloud

I see gross injustice
I see evil men
I see myself repeating
The same old words again

Looking down at my reflection
In the puddle lying there
Now I decide to change my mind
And show the world I care

I care about my fellow man
Being taken for a ride
I care that things start changing
But there's no one on my side
