Friend of the shadows He's wandering Knows no country, No god or king You miss him when you're passing by You don't hear him when he cries But if you take a step closer There's a window to his life Look in his eyes (See him in the dark) What do you find? (Without a light, without a spark) Look in his eyes and see the dark She's holding her child The way your mother held you Is turning her around What you really wanna do? You miss her when she passes by You won't know it when she dies You'll never really see her Until you look into her eyes Look in her eyes (See the burning fire) What do you find? (Freedom is her one desire) Look in her eyes and see the fire Raft on a shore Tears in the surf Strangers in a strange land Surviving since birth You miss them when they pass you by They don't mean a thing to you But if you take a step backward It's your story, too Look in their eyes (Footprints in the sand) What do you find? (The world's forgotten citizens) Look in their eyes (See a thousand miles) What do you find? (Mother, daughter, father, child) Look in their eyes (Families left behind) What do you find? (Everything is on the line) Look in their eyes What do you find? Look in their eyes What do you find? Look in their eyes What do you find? Look in their eyes What do you find?
