    "...Fear DeSilva...And that is the nature of terrorism"
    from the movie "Nighthawks"

    We cannot buy our safety
    We cannot influence sanity
    We are unprepared for those obsessed with their right
    Their will
    Their network

    We are only beginning
    Factions hell bent on destruction
    While the innocent pay the price
    Illogical ideaology
    Fuled by cultural hatred
    Perpetuated by inept attempts at peace
    There will be no peace
    There is no love

    I watch the smoke fill the New York Sky
    I don't wonder why
    I know

    The world clock ticks louder
    Yet painfully slower
    It's inner spring unwinding
    Soon all that will be left is nothing
    Capitalism, intolerance of others
    The sad legacy
    Of a world gone bad
