Yesterday...
as the buldings tumbled down,
crushed into the sacred ground.

Smelled the breeze...
felt the world become deranged;
the violent, shifting winds of change
bring darkend clouds and angry sound
Apocolypse now gathered round

Count the pages as they turn
Smell the buildings as they burn
Feel the angry planet turn

Hear the hungry people yearn
Pray the rulers someday learn
Feel the angry world turn

In the aftermath...
Gathered forces overhead
Veangence for the martyred dead

Hear the scream...
A veangeful nation’s war machine....
The flames of righteous vengeance seen
Let nations tremble in the night
Beneath an angered empire’s might

Ruling madmen push the pawn
Frightened masses spur them on
Changing times have come and gone

Distant from the bloody dawn
Safe away from plans they’ve drawn
Changing times have come and gone

In the beaten land...
Screaming as a tyrant falls
Rising as their freedom calls...

Changes come....
Count the millions as they stand
See the righteous forces land
The angered eagle’s vicious scream
betrays his master’s darkest scheme

Read the politicians mind
where truths and lies grow intertwined
The faithful masses ever blind

The sacred causes undermined
Where schemes unheard of come defined
The faithful masses ever blind

On the street today
Saw the people on their feet
Speaking of the great deceit

Changing wind
The masses set the course again
Be damned the plots of ruling men
Set loose the blood of changing times
Let revolution judge the crimes

Lest governments set histories
Lest rulers pick their enemies
Let people claim their destinies

Smell changing times upon the breeze
As masses rise from bended knees
Let people claim their destinies

Jim Schultz 2003
