There in the dark there's a child and she's waiting
Lost in maze of a fait accompli
Is it a crime to be just hesitating
While we're pretending that we never see?

On a TV mounted on the wall
From this distance I can see it all
I've been out here
Watching you, watching you fall

Is there a trick to the art of not feeling?
Safe in our world while a mother's child bleeds
Praying that God won't demand a redeeming
Of cards we have held and pretend you don't need

On a TV mounted on the wall
From this distance I can see it all
I've been out here
Watching you, watching you fall

Better not think about it
And in time we'll start to doubt it
Christ has risen, keep him hidden
God forbid he sees

It's not that we lack the vision
Only just a quick decision
Who will blame us? Rules restrain us
It's all in history

So close my eyes and pretend I am sleeping
Avoiding the chance that you'll visit my dreams

On a TV mounted on the wall
From this distance I can see it all
I've been out here
Watching you, watching you fall
