Right after September 11th 2001,
The flags flew high and the people cried.
But now 4 years later, no one cares
Flags still fly, but they're the ones from then.
They're ratty and riped and need to retire.
But the owners don't notice and don't care
They're too busy living this nice life
To remember the ones who died
and the reason the flags flied.
After pearl harbor we got pissed,
We hunted down those japs and
killed them all, but we never learned
After the tower bombing of the 90's
Security went up for about a month
but now its gone, we never learned
After the olympic bombing we increased
Security around large sporting events
and other huge gatherings but never learned
After Sept 11th the security went up
Bush still wants it there and there it is
But people get mad at the soldiers because
Lets not forget the 2,986 people who died that day
or the 2,047 soldiers who have died since.
I won't let them forget, but I'm afraid that...
