You Just Don't Care

Look away, it's okay
Pretend that you don't see
The truth is there, but you don't care
You'd rather let it be.

The suffering and covering
The lies that you believed
Even sugar coated, scream of murder
but you'd rather be deceived.

Inside the walls his mother calls
but the baby has already died
You don't see it, but why don't you know...
It's not humane - they lied.

In the store just like before
The packages sitting there
You pick one up,
And go to pay

Because you just don't care.
