about

I wrote this song in the wake of 9-11. It was part of my coping process.

lyrics

What is home?
Home is not safe anymore. Perhaps it never was.
What is love?
Love is no different than it was, but contrasted with hate.
Who are we?
We are promise we are pain. The path to gold is lined with blood.
Who are you?
You are different you're not sane. But who am I to judge?

Confusion tears at the fabric of my brain.
Bring back my pride.
Illusion lies at the base of what I say
I can't explain this thing away, I cannot take another day.

What is God?
So very different but the same, who answers when we call.
From Above,
God is judgment, God is love. How can we know his will at all?

Confusion tears at the fabric of my brain.
Bring back my pride.
Illusion lies at the base of what I say
I can't explain this thing away, I cannot take another day.

What is war?
War is honor war is shame. A price that we can never pay.
Sadistic games
Where the cost outweighs the gain. But I can find no other way.

Confusion tears at the fabric of my brain.
Bring back my pride.
Illusion lies at the base of what I say
I can't explain this thing away, I cannot take another day.
