As tragedy unfolds like never before
people stop as the tragedy unfolding shakes the floor

A nation divided is brought together again,
By hatred in Afghanistan

We always said that won't happen to us
But now it did and we all begin to fuss

We all cry tears for the Red, White, and Blue
Because we could have stopped it if only we knew

Osama Bin Laden made time stand still
As President Bush is on Capitol Hill,

Talking to the people about what's going on
But all we see is tragedy
And the day it all begun.
