"LoveHateTragedy (Eat the World)" as written by and Jerry Horton Jr Tobin Esperance....
Human behavior
Peculiar it seems
Some thrive on hate
Some love and dream
Eveyone's got a purpose
And wants to be loved
I think I found my purpose
I think I found love

Hidden inside myself
Hidden inside, inside myself

Tragedy
Strikes when you least expect it
Tragedy
Strikes when you least expect it

Hate and destruction
Crashed down on our world
The stars and the stripes
The boys and the girls
It's sad it took a war
Just to bring us together
I believe in love
I believe in forever

Hidden inside ourselves
Hidden inside, inside ourselves

Tragedy
Strikes when you least expect it
Tragedy
Strikes when you least expect it

You better run
You better run
For your life
For your life
Shed a tear
Shed a tear
Live in fear

You better run
You better run
For your life
For your life
Shed a tear
Shed a tear
Live in fear

You better run
You better run
For your life
For your life
Shed a tear
Shed a tear
Live in fear

Love, hate, tragedy
Love, hate, tragedy

Tragedy
Strikes when you least expect it
Tragedy
Strikes when you least expect it

Tragedy
Tragedy
Tragedy

    General CommentI dunno...i can see it works for relationships, but look at the line "its sad it took war just to bring us together"...and Jacoby's right. We shouldnt have needed two planes to crash into the WTC and kill 6,000+ people to show our love for one another and concerns over the world.

    General Commentthis song is about september 11. you can tell this by the lyrics in the piece such as "some thrive on hate" ie al quiada. you can also tell as it says "tragedy strikes when you least expect it" ie the planes crashing into the twin tower. "Hate and destruction crashed down on our world" ie the planes crashing and the terrorists being the hate. "stars and the stripes" is jacoby being patriotic. he also says "its sad it took a war just to bring us together" which means that beacause of tis tragedy and the war on terrorism we al united from country to country and person to person. he is aying we should have all been united and should not need this to make us together. i am an englishman and we all felt and feel the same as all americans. we all watced this happen and felt sick and worried. i am pleased however that we have become united and especially that england and USA have now joined forces to be a strong force. this song is the best on the album and a great tribute. RIP for the dead in this attack and sorry for any one who lossed a love one. viva la cucaracher!
