Today our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate, and deadly, terrorist acts.

The jets, fuelled for cross country flights were filled with tens of thousands of gallons of volitile fuel... They were literally flying bombs.

OH MY GOD!!

crawling in my skin
these wounds they will not heal
fear is how I fall
confusing what is real

A second airplane! a 727 just rammed into the building!

Oh another one just hit, something else just hit, a very large plane (oh my) just flew directly over my building.

there's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
consuming/confusing

Make no mistake, the United States will hunt down, and punish those responsible for these cowardly acts.

One second after the sound started, there was gray smoke and what looked to be, like confetti flying all over the place...

The enormity of the situation today is just ... well it was just incredible.


this lack of self-control I fear is never ending
controlling/I can't seem
to find myself again
my walls are closing in
(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
so insecure

In a matter of seconds, the skyscraper collapsed... And was gone.

crawling in my skin
these wounds they will not heal
fear is how I fall
confusing what is real

Half of the 400 firefighters that first reached the scene, may be dead.

Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

10,000 people in each tower would typically be in there on a normal business day, and we get about another 5,000 visitors during the course of the entire day, so by 8.30 - 9.00 o'clock the building should have been full.

Terrorism has been alive and well throughout the rest of the world for a very very long time now, and you can point to as many different places and its come to our shores BIG TIME NOW, we need to understand that.

discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
distracting/reacting
against my will I stand beside my own reflection
it's haunting how I can't seem...

to find myself again
my walls are closing in
(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
so insecure

This is it, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, no!

crawling in my skin
these wounds they will not heal
fear is how I fall
confusing what is real

crawling in my skin
these wounds they will not heal
fear is how I fall
confusing what is real

there's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface

(consuming/confusing what is real
this lack of self-control I fear is never ending
controlling/confusing what is real) *meanwhile:*

America was targeted for attack because we are the brightest beacon for freedom, and opportunity in the world, and noone will keep that light from shining. This is one of the darkest days in American history, and it's an on-going nightmare but we will get through this, our freedoms will be intact and the spirit of this country will be stronger than ever.

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat, but they have failed, our country is strong...

    General CommentCrawling with samples of 9/11 commotion over it, touching but not really interesting.

    General CommentThis is one of millions of examples of a tri=uly bizarre phenomenon. Why do people feel the need to take soundbytes or images from the news relating to 9/11, i.e people screaming, running, dying, the crash, and put it to music like a fan video or something? It's kinda sick and it's definitely pointless. I hate this, and all other 9/11 videos and "remixes". This was never an official song.

    General CommentWhy has noone said anything on this? Yes, too many people do things like this, but that's just because of the sadness of stuff that happened...
