Today was the Day
The day that will never die
unlike many unfortunate souls
The day that will never be forgotten
unlike the fallen twin giants
The day that will never love as it was borne with hate
unlike the lost sweethearts of eternity
The day that will never flicker out of thought or sight
unlike the million lit candles burning down
Today was the Day
The day the child was lost
separated in the confusion
The day daddy never came home
and there sits his empty chair
The day mother disappeared
and was dreamt into a fairy tale
Today was the Day
The day that was wept bitterly over the
dying Sun in remembrance of the flower
The day that screamed for the betrayal
of a thousand pure souls
The day that prayed for those who
didn't know... and those that did
The day that mourned for eternity
cut short
Today was the Day
Today was the day innocence shattered
Today was the day lives collapsed and families were torn
Today was the day the illusions disappeared
Today was the Day
Today was the day that inspired a thousand poets
Today was the day that filled our souls with compassion
Today was the day that hope was born anew
Today was the day, was the day, was the day
