I SEE A MAN
HIS HEAD BENDS DOWN
HIS SHOULDERS HANG LOW
HE CARRIES A HEAVY WEIGHT

HE IS AWARE WHAT IS GOING AROUND
SEES ALL WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE
HE RECOGNISES PEOPLES' FEELINGS
THEIR HAPPINESS BUT MOST OF ALL THEIR SUFFERING

NOT JUST PEOPLES' SORROW BOTHER HIM
HIS HEART SEES THE ANIMALS SUFFER
SOCIAL CIRCUMSTANCES FOR MAN AND ANIMAL HE SEES
THE SUFFERING MAKES HIS BODY BOWING TO THE GROUND

HIS ONLY WAY TO HANDLE SEEING THIS IS SITTING DOWN
WRITING DOWN WHAT COMES DEEP OUTSIDE OF HIM
TO USE AS A MESSAGE TO SHOW THE OTHERS WHAT IS GOING AROUND
SINGING WITH PASSION WILL AWAKEN THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ABLE TO HEAR
