lyrics

Standing Man do you see how her heart bleeds?
Take a walk through the streets you come upon a scene
Three men they’re standing there
She lies, cries naked, in despair
All can see not only her heart bleeds
Yet you just stand there

Standing man don’t deny you've cried deep down inside
You have felt hop and pity
You understand her pain her suffering
Her screams are ringing in your ears
But all you do is stand there and sing
It’s the same thing
It’s the same thing
It’s the same thing
I've seen this on TV

Standing man fade away into your grey and dreary ways
There is no use for you here, unless you
Help, pitch in clean up the mess
Cover her naked body with her dress
But all you’ll do is stand there and you’ll sing
It’s the same thing
