Who Cares Wins

Album: State of Euphoria (1988)
  • Close your eyes to the horror
    Close your eyes to the pain
    When you live in a box
    No one knows your name
    Living in the street
    Moms and kids with nothing to eat
    Welfare hotels
    Who says there's no place called hell

    I can't see you
    I can't hear you
    You don't see me
    You couldn't be me
    Who cares wins

    There but for the grace of god
    There but for the grace of god
    Who cares, who cares, who cares, who cares
    There but for the grace of god
    There but for the grace of god...
    Go you or I
    Open your eyes
    You don't see me
    You couldn't be me

    Invisible could be my name
    Your excuses are so lame
    Real pleas fall on deaf ears
    Look away when I'm near
    Freezing cold in winter's heat
    Burning up can be a treat
    Blisters breaking on my feet
    At least I get a subway seat

    I can't see you
    I can't hear you
    You don't see me
    You couldn't be me
    Who cares wins

    There but for the grace of god
    There but for the grace of god
    Who cares, who cares, who cares, who cares
    There but for the grace of god
    There but for the grace of god...

    Go you or I
    Open your eyes
    You don't see me
    You couldn't be me
    Who cares wins

    Self help and preservation
    Not now I'm on vacation
    Priority is you
    And screw all those around you

    Now's the time for you to share
    Indifference you have to care
    Deep inside you know it's true
    How do I get through to you
    Open your eyes to the horror
    Open your eyes to the pain
    When you live in a box
    No one knows your name
