Oh my goodness, oh my dear
I'm asking you: "What's happening here?"
What to do? What to do about it?
What to say? What to say about it?
Do you reallyknow?
Can you really see?
Do you feel the need?
Can it really be?
Can you hear the anguish?
Do you really care?
Can you taste the bitterness?
Do you even dare?
Do you sense the urgency?
Can you smell the fear?
Do your hands remain untainted?
Is your conscience clear?
Do you share your wealth and knowledge?
Do you confront reality?
Do you look at what is needed
And admit the gravity?
Do you assume responsibility
For the consequences of your acts?
Are you concerned about the future
Are you leaving things intact?
Do you take the time
To consider what you do?
Do you heed the signs
And acknowledge what is true?
Do you reveal your real intentions?
Are you sincere in what you say?
Would you sacrifice your belongings
And relinquish all your pay?
Do you seek to mend injustice?
Do you strive to heal the pain?
Are you searching for a remedy
Or do you hide away?
