It’s another lucky day and I get to climb these walls
Another 24 on the great big spinning ball

They've ripped out the heart of the city and waved it in front of our eyes
Torn it to shreds with no pity as the last breaths expire to the sighs
Of the things that we all took for granted, those that steeped us in faith are all gone
The things that we shared and the risks we all dared to take when the beat drove us on

Will I leave?

We prayed as it reached a crescendo, when it sucked out the facts that remained
And that universe melted and ended in the white hot success that they claimed
And all that was left were the spaces in the crucified minds of the poor
We were famished and dry and too tired to cry as the dead came to beat down the door...

We watched as the birds left the towers, they flew as the wind tore away
The hopes and the cares of so many, in the storm of that last dying day
And the things that were solid and steadfast were uprooted and slashed with their knives
And the last that we knew, we were broken and blue in the hollowed-out shells of our lives.

And if I stay in hope or in fear, I will rejoice and I won’t shed a tear
On this day, destroyed or redeemed, I will have lived where so many just seemed

And if my fate, on you should depend, I’ll stand by my words and will always defend
What I say, believed or ignored, I know those who live by it die by the sword...

And one day fulfilled or forlorn, I will be stripped as the day I was born.
What I take, redeemed or condemned, I will hold dear as the love that you gave me my friends.

Another lucky day
