On a day like any other
Sky pristine and powder blue
It was just as I'd expected
I was still thinking of you

As the room around us blackened
Into artificial night
I watched everything I'd hoped for
Slipping slowly out of sight

And I know your heart was breaking
As you thought about your past
And you asked me why I dressed myself
In burning dust and ash

And the smoke spread out like water
And the steel it fell like snow
We can hold each other tightly dear
There's noplace left to go

And in the roar of twin jet engines
Heard the ghost in the machine
And I thought I heard them whisper
We'll be strongest at the seams

Now we dream in perfect imagery
Of all the aeroplanes
Though we prayed they'd touch down softly
Will they all return to flames?

So I'll say don't you cry my darlin
Shut your eyes and take my hand
We'll be free when we are falling
When we all return to sand

And I know this too shall pass
And I know this too shall pass
And I know this too shall pass
And I know this too shall pass

This too shall pass
This too shall pass

And in the roar of twin jet engines
Heard the ghost in the machine
And I thought I heard them whisper
You'll be strongest at the seams
