about

We want to do the right thing, but do we really care about our morals that much? Do we care more about the way our morals seem to others, or what the actual consequences are of our moral behaviour?

In a modern society, a nutritional deficiency might be less of a trouble when all you need to do is to "seem" right.

lyrics

What I cannot do now
I can act

What I cannot be now
I can seem

Do I really care at all
About animals dead or alive?

Is there a deeper wish in me
To be different significant?


What I cannot feel now
I can sing

What I cannot see now
I can look at

Do I really care at all
About animals dead or alive?

Is there a deeper wish within me
To be significant and different?


How I cannot be now
I can steal

Where I cannot be now
I can leave

Do I really care at all
About animals dead or alive?

Is there a deeper wish in me
Beneath the concept that compassion is kind?


When I cannot be 'round
I can fall asleep

Why I cannot be 'round
Is because I'm me

Do I really care at all
About animals on plates or in wild?

Is there a deeper wish within me
To be significant? Significant oh
