It’s Just Black (Song for 9/11)

This is the day that the great towers fell
We stared in horror at a new kind of hell
Now many years later, see how much has changed
The terror that entered us left us deranged
Still fighting the war that on that day began
With no end in sight – or was that the plan?

So please don’t give me your red white and blue:
It’s just black, just black
It’s just black, just black

So if you want to honor those who have died
They gave up their lives – you can give up your pride
Stop jeering, shed tears for all who are dead
Stop lusting for triumph, seek forgiveness instead
There are holes in our souls that can never be filled
However many we conquer, however many we kill

So please don’t give me your red white and blue:
It’s just black, just black
It’s just black, just black

(2011, 2016)
