Tragedy pulls us together but anything tears us apart
Trying hard to stay complacent but all the systems fail
And fear denies the truth that's in your heart

Forgetting lessons I have learned
My mouth is shut the table turned
No one giving time is winning again

I can't shift the blame forever
Some is your and some is mine
Sick of searching for a solution we'll always disagree
If the other half is too afraid to fight

I'm losing the will to believe
They're marching as if they were free
How could millions be so stupid???

And it's tragic everywhere I go
This country is not what you know
No one giving, fear is winning again

[Speech From President Bush
Signing of Defense Bill, August 2004]
Third, this bill meets our commitment to America's Armed Forces by preparing them to meet the threats of tomorrow. Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.
[End of President Bush Speech]

Strength beyond our souls (not enough to save us)
Way beyond control (we are all defenseless) x5
