"Lookaway" as written by James Patrick Glennie, Lawrence Gott and Tim Booth....
I pretend that I know where I'm going
I pretend I know where I came from
Or the fear
Will engulf completely
I chose to waltz this bridge of sighs

Act my age
In an age of indifference
I'm as big as I can dream
I forget in the truth of my nature
I forget to forgive
And so I look away
Look away
Look away

I can't stop
So I carry on
I don't trust
God is on my side
Indirect as the gaze of a geisha
I'm still that lost and lonely child

Look away
Look away

All mirrors shattered
Poor plastic clown
All that really mattered
You weren't in the building
When the walls came crashing down
