The Eyes of the World are Watching

And it’s on with the show that never ends,

Instead of living they’ll be entertained.

It’s the fame and fortune, the next big thing,

Because the eyes of the world are watching.

 

They’re full of joy and holiday cheer,

But the beast in him demands release.

A trip to the mall, “be back in a bit”.

And the eyes of the world were watching.

 

In quiet peace she had spent her days,

But they had to have their fun.

A moment’s folly, a final choice,

Because the eyes of the world were watching.

 

In the morning rush they said goodbye,

Never dreaming it might be their last.

The thunder of death, innocence lost,

And the eyes of the world were watching.

 

But now it’s on with the song and dance,

Many words but more empty hearts.

The world spins swiftly, they scramble to please,

Because the eyes of the world are watching.
