LRM was my reaction to 9-11. I watched that day from my rooftop in Brooklyn and somehow knew the towers would fall before they did. The song starts with the feeling of ones home being attacked and ends with the predictable American response of cashing in on a war opportunity. It was also a reaction to what felt like the rest of the countries completely different reaction than what I felt in New York City. The incredibly deep bonding that New Yorkers were experiencing was one of the only positive things to come out of the tragedy.


Long Range Motion
(Zay, Tobias, Taylor)

Long range motion
We are open
Torn on the inside
We are open

See them fall from the sky
Wait up, don't die
Sense the danger, rip in the heart
Torn away, pulse is gone
Send away our hope
Take away our home

Inside my heart someone has attacked my home
Inside my head its a war zone
and I'm drawn to the streets that I love
I need to be with the people - be with

Long range motion
We are open
Torn on the inside
We are open

Blind Faith, straight to war
Surrender to the cause
Falling dreams in the maze
See the lies, whose two-faced
Send away our stories
Take away our myths

Long range motion
We are open
Torn on the inside
We are open
