Sacrificed Sons

Lyrics by: James LaBrie (oops!)
Music by: Dream Theater
Notes: Obviously, a song about the tragic events of 9/11/01

Walls are closing anxiously
Channel-surfing frantically
Burning city
Smoke and fire
Planes were certain
Faith-inspired

No clues
A complete surprise
Who'll be coming home tonight?

Heads are turning towards the sky
Towers crumble
Heroes die

Who would wish this on our people?
And proclaim that His will be done
Scriptures say he had misled them
All praised as Sacrificed Sons
All praised as Sacrificed Sons

Teach them what to think and feel
Your way so enlightening
Watch them preach
I can't relate
if God's true love
are acts of hate

Who would wish this on our people
And proclaim that His will be done
Scriptures say he had misled them
All praised as Sacrificed Sons
All praised as Sacrificed Sons

God on high
Our mistake
Will mankind
Be extinct?

There's no time
Time to waste
Who serves the Truth
For Heaven's sake?
