if there is nothing to fear then fear itself would you yield? they were not supposed to be here
i still love laying in fields and staring up to get real
it makes the world just seem so clear
and all the words that they say, don't let 'em turn you to clay
yeah i know it's not fair
i'm waking up to the sound of new york coming down
i never knew we could be so scared
did the timing seem like lightning?
i'm afraid it did
she's got new shoes, he wears an old hat
what's it matter?
what's it matter?!?
when i get the feelin' back in my hands
i promise i'll build some bridges across this land
when i get the feelin' back in my hands
i'll pick apart these walls. brick by brick, stone and sand
and as night falls we will stand tall
proud but not sure why
this is not a dream. this is not a game
i heard someone say america the beautiful
blame the catholics. blame the christians.
blame the muslims. blame the jews.
blame your mother. blame your father.
but blame never got anyone anywhere

    General CommentThis song deals with 9/11 from everything I can hear and read.

    "The sound of New your coming down
    I never knew we could be so scared"

    Talks about how scared the country was as a whole but that we shouldn't automatically start blaming broad classes of people. A rather powerful song from a great band.
