about

The lines “A holy war is how it looks, hit by God’s left hand crooks, all the way from Rome to Pakistan” came one month before 9-11. I was psychically sensing something while taking a class in Tower 1 once almost every week for the previous 9 months. I could feel it in the lobby, and I wrote about it through the American eye capitalizing in every way and on every level on even a most horrific tragedy. The middle drum and bass section juxtaposes a reading of the Koran with the reading of an American family’s experience that day.

lyrics

Peace in The Warzone
i - Telemetry
ii - Dust Of Life
iii - Fundamental Need
(Zay, Tobias, Taylor)

i> Telemetry
If I don't give you my all
and I stay back to play small
What will you see that makes a difference at all?

And if I feel like it's a waste
and don't give you a little taste
How can we heal from our collective fall?

Can you see them
Can you hear them
singing everywhere
Peace in the warzone
In the warzone
nothing blown away

A holy war is how it looks
hit by God's left hand crooks
All the way from Rome to Pakistan
Hiding from each others pain
Running from our lonely zones
Humanity is ready to unite

Can you see them
Can you hear them
singing everywhere
Peace in the warzone
In the warzone
nothing blown away

ii> Dust of Life: instrumental

iii> Born Again
It feels like we are born again
Down to hell, back to rent
All our tragedies have a brand name
Beneath the lies our leaders feed
Financial loss, heightened greed
Still lives our fundamental need

Can you see them
Can you hear them
singing everywhere
Peace in the warzone
In the warzone
nothing blown away
