lyrics

Well let us say that to perform a moral action can be likened to encountering a face
This is the face of someone you are not depending on; of someone you can not exact a praise
Where this
happens
does not count
The only thing that matters is the meeting with a soul whose character you can't expect to trace

The face demands you then to make a hard decision whether you will help the Other or deny
You can't require the same favor from the Other in return and guarantee what then comes by
What then
happens
does not count
If you decide to meet the eyes and help the Other, then you do submit what's called a risk, hereby

You will loose control

There are a lot of ethic guidelines that will tell you to apply a set of rules to follow through
but
this act is unique and exempt from reciprocity and therefor it's irrational for you

Well let us say that to perform a moral action can be likened to the act of caring love
Responsibility precedes the searching after truth and you can't keep a catch on those you love
That it
happens
that's what counts
So let your eyes drown in the eyes you now are facing and accept that to be moral is to love:

You will loose control
