Just watching my TV
New York City Centre,Jet Crash.
News Call,Broadcast stall.
Drop the headlines!!
This is the new line
Look up on the Skyline
Right on the building top.
On another line
Pentagon now a exagon
Another plane drop.
Whats that?whats that?
Beam in on the spot.
Another streak across the sky
Sliiced another tower
Whats going on?Whats going on?
Another crash,big explosion
Switch broadcast over to Washington
Whats your impression?
Whats your emotion.
"Whats your reaction"?
Can't believe my eyes J
Just as it began,I realize
This is an atrocity
Right here,in the heart of the city.
Terrorist Attack!!Terrorist Attack!!
Then the burning Walls a falling
Like crashing dominoes
Right to the ground.
Armagadeon has arrived,without warning!!
CIA, FBI,Home Security Then the Guv
Blaming intelligence,asking why.
Collate and evaluate
Then the appropriate reply.
Calling the president for a comment.
"What do you think of unfolding events"?
"WE will find the perpetrators one by one
Whether he is hiding in Iraq,Iran, or Pakistan.
We will call up the troops,assembly the galleon,
Then bomb them ,blast them Clean up their land,
Bring in new administrations,
Thats the plan
Fireman, Policemen,all on the scene
"This is total disaster,the worst we ever seen.
Engines,sirens,surgeons and volunteers
Combining efforts in a stream.
Such a nightmare, awful dream
But in the present,
the on going theme
