Drive through the city at night
Trying to stay distracted
Past the dead eyes
Past the cold hands
I see the blood on the street,
I see the smoke in the air,
But further down the street,
I see a different picture,
Towers like Babylon,
Reach up and block out the sun,
This can't go on forever,
Soon it will all be gone,

I Know it's hard for you
It's all you've ever known
So much that you've collected
The wealth that you protected

Every brick, every page, every bone, into dust
Every block, every cage, every grave, into dust
Every screen, every glass, every wheel, into dust

I know it's hard for you,
It's all you've every known,
So much that you've protected
The wealth that you wrecked

Every brick, every page, every bone, into dust
Every block, every cage, every grave, into dust
Every screen, every glass, every wheel, into dust

    General CommentJFK said that Femme Fatale was all autobiographical.

    I don't believe he ever went to war or anything like that. Considering it was made in 2004, it could be about 9/11 and New York, but at the same time, I doubt that.

    On the 9/11 theory to support:
    I see a different picture,
    Towers like Babylon,
    Reach up and block out the sun,
    This can't go on forever,
    Soon it will all be gone,

    Towers like Babylon - Twin Towers


    Every brick, every page, every bone, into dust
    Every block, every cage, every grave, into dust
    Every screen, every glass, every wheel, into dust

    Pretty much everything was destroyed in that building in one way or another.
