I don't see myself when
I look in the mirror
I see who I should be
I don't see myself when
I look in your eyes
Thank god for that

I don't see myself when
I look cross the river
I see where I should be
I don't see myself when
I look from the sky
Thank god for that

I hear them screaming
On the radio, its getting louder
In the crossfire trying to
Find some hope from
The ashes of their broken home

I don't see myself when
They fail to deliver
I see what I should be
I don't see myself when
I look at the flag
Thank god for that

I hear them screaming
On the radio, its getting louder
In the crossfire trying to
Find some hope

Our day will come
We'll find the sun
We'll find the fire
We'll sanctify the love we
Give our one desire

I hear them screaming
On the radio, its getting louder
In the crossfire trying to
Find some hope

I hear them screaming
On the radio, its getting louder
In the crossfire trying to
Find some hope from the ashes of
Their broken home
I don't see myself when
I look in the mirror

    General CommentI love the lines "I don't see myself when I look at the flag"... It would seem to fit in with the theme of the terrors of the Iraq, that he feels no pride when he sees the flag waving because of what we've done, and he thanks God that he still has that element of huanity remaining.
    I also love how it breaks from the five lines about love and desire, and seems to break back almost brutally into "I hear them screaming...". It's almost as if he's imagining a better world, and how we could be more peaceful, then reality snaps him back out of it.

    That's what I think anyway.
