witness lyrics – mindset

blind eyes
they say justice is blind but the hand is numb
no comp*ssion for the people held under it’s thumb
as the chains of oppression were left to rust
another man took a seat at the back of the bus
blind eye
blind witness
they say justice is blind but the hand is numb
no comp*ssion for the people held under it’s thumb
witness
progress made can’t be denied yet so many lives remain
cast aside
free from guilt? i didn’t light the match…
turn away from the flame as it burns my back
my mouth is dry, but if the levee burst
would i douse the flames or quench my thirst?
when we close our eyes we close our fists
our blindness ensures that oppression exists
blind eye
blind witness
