Listen To The Sound

Listen to the sound
Of that plane overhead

Imagine
That you
And your family
Are at home
In Pakistan or Palestine
Or Afghanistan or Iraq

Listen to the sound
Of that plane overhead

Imagine
That in a moment
The pilot
Way up there
Or the controller
Someplace else
Will push a button

Listen to the sound
Of that plane overhead

Imagine
The terror
When the walls
Of your home
Cave in

Listen to the sound
Of that plane overhead

Imagine
The screams
Of your children
As the walls
Of their lungs
Cave in

Listen to the sound
Of that plane overhead

Imagine
The despair
And grief
When the walls
Of your heart
Cave in

Listen to the sound
Of that plane overhead

Imagine
The rage
You would feel
Toward the pilot
Or the controller
And the country
They represent

Listen to the sound
