As Long As Nobody Stares

On your face I discovered that frown
That I thought you’d stopped wearing a long time ago
Well, it turns out I was wrong
I wonder what else you don’t show
And you don’t seem to know me anymore
But you say you don’t really care
And people told you that was alright
Just as long as nobody stares

You once told me I was born to save you
Or at least to take you home
Well, I never found out how to save you
And I don’t remember your home
And I don’t seem to know you anymore
I confess I don’t really care
And people told you that was alright
As long as nobody stared

There were times when I just kept repeating
Words you never meant anyway
And you taught me all about cheating
Myself into going astray
And I don’t seem to know myself anymore
But you say I shouldn’t care
And you trust that I know that all is alright
(Just) as long as nobody stares

Whenever I found myself crying
Feeling lonesome, alone, on my own
I just believed in the words you were lying
And I never felt alone anymore
Though you don’t seem to know yourself anymore
You say you don’t really care
And people told you that all was alright
As long as nobody stared
Just as long as nobody stares

People were torn from their houses
That kept making the news
But you rather watched ‘Trading Spouses’
You never cared for my kind of truth
And you don’t seem to know this world anymore
But you say you don’t really care
And people can fuck off if they think you’re wrong
Just as long as nobody stares

Now, there’s nothing I’m trying to tell you
There’s no point I’d like to make
I’m not even really talking about you
But this old world is going to hell
And no one seems to know anyone else anymore
And who knows if someone cares
But people will tell us that all is alright
As long as nobody stares
Just as long as nobody stares
Just as long as nobody stares
Nobody stares
Nobody stares
