Waking Up To Buildings On Fire


15 years ago

__thee end of the world began

And right then and there

__I knew the world became a place

____that is no longer safe

______to raze children in

As we watched on Tv.

We thought this was the start of World War 3

But found out America has learned

__from the first 2 world wars already

So now the terrors keep happening

Because America got so used

__to listening to the revolution

____of peace and love

______that our leaders

________have no more temper tantrums

__________to throw out

Sure, we killed who we thought did it

Just almost a decade later

But not enough of the enemies

__were brought to justice

Now we run a country

__where the real enemies

____drive our taxis

And run our convenient stores

As well as serve our technology

__in the modern world

We are told "they are just stationed there

Waiting to strike again"

But our whole peaceful and loving land

Cannot come to grips and combat

Because our laws

__have made it impossible

So the land of thee American dream

Crumbled in my heart

We live by laws

__that don't protect us

All in all

We are all fucked!
