Never Forget (9/11/07)

Posted by on Sep 11, 2007 in Legacy | No Comments

May we never forget that violence always kills — not only the person who is murdered, but also the killer. Violence is always anti-Human.

And let us never lose the hope — or the desire to create — better futures.

I always believed in futures
I hope for better in November
I try the same losing lucky numbers
It could be a cold night for a lifetime

Hey now, you can’t keeping saying endlessly
My darling, how long until this affects me?

Say hello to good times
Trade up for the fast ride
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

I always could count on futures
That things would look up, and they look up
Why is it so hard to find balance
Between living decent and the cold and real

Hey now, what is it you think you see?
My darling, now’s the time to disgaree

Say hello to good times
Trade up for the fast ride
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

Hey now, the past is told by those who win
My darling, what matters is what hasn’t been
Hey now, we’re wide awake and we’re thinking
My darling, believe your voice can mean something

Say hello to good times
Trade up for the fast ride
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely
