much as i would like to see bush out of the white house, i think it is silly to pursue the idea that he should have known 9-11 was going to happen. it would take an extraordinary mind to put together those little scraps of information and come up with a scenario such as 9-11. bush has a decidedly ordinary mind, unlike the type of president we have become accustomed to. it's also not his job. it is the job of the fbi and the cia. heads should be rolling already over the memo from phoenix. i would love to know the names of the flight school students mentioned in that memo (which they won't release), and where they are now. they say that none of the 9-11 hijackers were mentioned. that means that there are a bunch of other guys out there who know how to fly airliners and who work for al quaeda... why is nobody asking this question?

After Everything
The Church

Now that it's over I found myself fleeting
The sound permeated all directions at once
I never said goodbye to the family, lovers
Brothers and daughters, the rest of the bunch

It seems so strange that the things I was chasing
Have all evaporated like a distant dream
Petty ambition, petty obstruction
Something in between

I really thought it would go on forever
Never believed they would sever the ties
All of the questions remaining unanswered
A stranger's reflection in a stranger's eyes

Here is a child playing in a garden
Here is an old man with a broken heart
Here comes a train to take you away
It all goes round and round and comes back to the start

I was never really sure what I was waiting for
When the moment came I was looking away
Obsessed with a past, scared of the future
Never took the time to be here today

After everything now this happens
It's not a grand illusion, it's a stupid little trick
The show must go on, these people have paid
You're standing in the wings feeling kinda sick

Never really sure what you were waiting for
When the moment came you just couldn't choose
The fog sweeps down over the marine city
Standing backstage trying to pull on your shoes
