did you see the boy, the frozen sky
skating on the ice, a sudden cry
he fell down, a hole in the ice
he disappeared, there was trouble in paradise

so you were there, couldn't lend him a hand!
too far away, the lie of the land
shocked by struggle, you justify
a dozen times you fell that fools lullaby

if your head gets too big
you'll end up in a parade
so you better go home
when curiousity killed the mouse
and all the eyes fall down
the party's reached it's end

did you hear the bang, just down town
a car-accident, upside down
as fast as you can, won't miss the mess
how many dead, enough to impress

so you were then, didn't step aside
when help arrived, you parasite
left for dead now, you smell the glory
never seen that much blood, for your fishermanstory?

why do only stories that are sad
keep the attention high, and others are denied
a missing link in life
a dark basement in our mind
or are we party blind

did you see the fire burn in your neighbourhood
did you see the fire burn you'd better turn

so you were there, you rattlesnake
but you arrived just a minute too late
