  1. Take Me

Lyrics

He stumbled through the broken street of glass and stone
the sun dangling in the noon sky
They just said goodbye
She left the house at 9am predicting she'd return at ten
but hours passed
Then he heard the blast

Now he's running through the crowd that's gathered round
the decimated market place
looking for her face
Sirens sound from nearby roads. His thoughts are incoherent
Head blank as a cloud
And he shouts out loud

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, Take me
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, Take me

Earlier that day a man had stepped into a car and taken out his keys
And then begged god please:
"Take my soul but keep my sons away from harm
And don't you hurt my loving wife
As I give my life"

His engine turned, the car drove down some Ahfgan street
he listened to the radio
He was driving slow
As he approached the market place he held his breath
and gripped the wheel began to cry
And looked to the sky.... he screams

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, Take me
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, Take me

Fire, fire and dust fill the air
Fire, fire and dust, a hope and a prayer
Fire, fire and dust fill the air
Fire, fire and dust, a hope and a prayer

Seven thousand miles away in thirty second segments
all the experts muse
on the evening news
Yet another necessary consequence
to keep our homeland safe and sound
